    Creative Mending by Karen Barbé - duplicate stitch on the weak spots, but patterned (and the left sleeve is different from the right). Clever!

awesome duplicate stitch tutorial! Blog | Karen Barbé | Textileria: Creative Mending – Part 1

Now that Ive mended the hole with crochet, I like my sweater even better than before it had the hole!

This tutorial is about strengthening thinned areas in your knits using Swiss darning or duplicate stitch. Ideally you should do this before you get a hole in them! You can use it for reinforcing elbows, heels or toes or just as an embellishment to your knits.

YES. sequin elbow patches. From a pair & a spare.

#DIY Felting - this is actually really easy to do... I may have to make these heart elbow patched for a blazer for my baby girl... so cute :)

I actually rather like these and the best feature is that these would be super simple to knit yourself.
