I’m not a girl that is into matching her outfit with the holiday. I am not keen on Christmas sweaters, Easter  dresses, red white and blue shorts, or Turkey brooches. I like to say Merry Christmas, Happy 4th, or whatever with my words; not my clothes screaming at you. But, a little hint to the holiday is sweet and lovely. And, so it is with adding heart patches to your cardie. Sweet and Lovely.


Cardie that needs love. (code for you don’t love it)
Fabric cut into heart patches.
Thread and needle.


Pin the patches on your cardie in their desired location. Stitch those babies on. If you are like me and not the quickest stitch er then watch a movie at the same time. Be patient!

Stitch some cute little arrows in random locations.

Stitch a bit of fabric on to the existing zipper pull.

Add a heart patch for new life to your cardigan! from


Now your wardrobe looks Valentine’s Day friendly. And won’t scare people when you wear it in April. You are cool, collected, trendy, and full of love and cheer!
So, let’s hear it. Are you a holiday sweater, turkey brooch, Easter bunny wearer? And Loud and Proud? Or, are you restrained in your wardrobe’s holiday cheer?
