I really wanted to update this plain purple sweater somehow and my first thought was to take the popular route of the giant appliqued or felted heart on the front.

I love how my feather adorned sweater turned out. It actually looks like it was meant to be-- and I think the key to this is working with the same texture/grade of fabric for both your sweater and the applique you sew on it.

It sort of puts me in mind of a letterman's sweater for some reason. Which makes me want to do something similar on a cardigan... Such a cool way to personalize your clothes, huh?
