A Simple Patch turned into a Miniature sweater - takes 2 MINUTES TO MAKE!!

Hello everybody!
Hope you all including your families have
been well.
 
I know that I am a BAD, BAD BLOGGER, but what
can I say,
SOMETIMES LIFE JUST GETS
IN THE WAY WITH BLOGGING.
 
Sometimes I am doing good just to post. I am
always looking for new ideas to make your
mini world a little quicker!
 
Can you believe that this is an ordinary patch!
Yes, the kind of patch that you iron on your
shirt or pants to cover up a hole.
 
This sweater when sewed up is the correct
size for a miniature sweater. Look at the sweater
patch - it is knitted. I could have changed the
buttons but they are not that big. It only looks
that way in this picture. If your patch
has buttons and you do not like it - then
change the buttons before you do any sewing
or gluing!
This is so easy to do - only takes
2 MINUTES TO SEW BY HAND!
 
This is the front side of the patch.
 
This is the back side. This patch has a glue on it
so it is hard to see.
 
Here is the length of the patch.
 
Here is the width of the patch.
 
I did have another photo to show the front side
of this patch to show you where to
fold to begin sewing. However that photo
was blurry. Sorry. Just refer to the
1st picture to see that I left a little bit of
shoulder. Be sure to finger-crease the
side edges so they help to stay put - like
this photo.
 
You can use white thread or any
color of thread you want because
the thread will not be seen. I am
using cream colored quilting thread.
Start at the bottom or the top - it
does not matter.
 
I did have another photo to show you but it was
blurry also. So -  just fold up the sweater patch
and stitch it closed with big stitches or small
stitches. Just make sure that your thread is
not seen.
OR - JUST GLUE THE ENTIRE THING
SHUT!
Thank you for visiting me!
