I Wear My Heart On My Sweater

This suits my fancy a bit more.

I told you I was loving all these hearts I was seeing!
And I needed one.

I bought this sweater for $1.50 at my favorite thrift shop.
I already had the felt and thread, 
so this was one of my less expensive projects 
(You're welcome, Love).

All you need to do is cut your heart out;
pin it to the spot where you'd like it to be and then sew it on.
Pretty easy...
I ended up cutting the collar off 
(I used a zig-zag stitch to keep it from fraying)
because I felt claustrophobic in it...
well, and I like ribbons.
I just wove a little white ribbon through the knitting
to keep the neck a little more secure.

We'll see where this leads,
because now I have all kinds of ideas for patches.
