Style Sunday: Customised Cardigan

All I can think about now is making more clothes for myself. But, finding the time to dedicate to this pursuit is a little tricky at the moment, so I’m always on the look out for other creative ways to add personal; touch to my clothing.

Style Sunday Customised CardiganSo, imagine my joy when I found this Love/Hate Elbow Patch Cardigan, £25, ASOS! I mean, who doesn’t have a plain grey cardigan in their closet just crying out for a little bit of customisation and fun!

1 True Love Never Dies Swallow Tattoo Patches, £9.59 per pair, lizmiera
2 Hipsters Are So Mainstream, £6, CafePress
3 Plaster Patches, £6 per set of 6 designs, TwistedTwee
4 Fox Motif, £1.06 each, MacCulloch & Wallis

Sew on patches are cool – there is no denying that! I love this cool idea for customisation but I also love sew-on patches in general. I mean they are a whole lot of fun, perhaps its nostalgia for working toward those badges in the Brownies – which of course, was my favourite part!

But, I recently discovered that just because I’m a grown up and no longer in the Brownies or Girl Guides doesn’t mean that I can’t earn super-rad badges!
Scout ProjectGo check out The Scout Project –  which is a merit badge program that guides and rewards those who want to learn life skills at any age, you can see why this appeal to me already right?! I’m totally behind this kind of adventure – you can find out more about the program on The Scout Project Field Log

    love the badges idea! especially on an otherwise plain cardi that might look a bit generic.

      I can’t believe I didn’t think of this before! Not sure if I’d add it to handknits though!
