DIY elbow patches and a little pocket


IMG_5182

Once upon a time a girl had a shirt that she loved, it came from spain and fitted her perfectly. It was blue with light and dark spots. Unfortunately, when the shirt went into the wash, it got bigger and the shirt changed into one colour. The girl was sad and didn’t wear the shirt very often. The shirt got lonely and wanted to be worn again.

what you’ll need:

  • A shirt
  • Some fabric
  • A sewing machine or a needle
  • Some thread
  • Pins
