Valentine's Day Sweater

Copy this Free-People inspired look in less than an hour.

For a festive take that isn’t too cutesy (think plastic hearts glued to a sweatshirt) try this hand-embroidered sweater that takes less than an hour to complete.

We got the idea from the Country Living website and copied it almost exactly—for less than $10!

The sweater was on $7 clearance at JC Penney. The iron-on patches were $1.50 and the thread was $1, both at Walmart.

To get this look:

Put on the sweater and mark where your elbows hit.

Cut two hearts (ours were about 3 inches, but I have little arms.)

Iron them onto the places you marked.

Blanket stitch around the patches. To avoid sewing your sleeves together, use a can—I used bathroom cleaner—in the sleeve to hold it open. 

The total time was less than an hour.
