Work Wear Wednesday: Where did all the Cardigans Go?

No but seriously. Where are all the cardigans? JCrew and Madewell used to stock them aplenty, and now I am struggling to find one to fit my purpose.

I know I have a lot of cardigans, but I also wear them every damn day and wear a small-sizable hole in the right elbow of almost every damn one.  This morning I really needed (white girl problem) a neutral cardigan. And the one brown-ish one I have has a huge hole in said elbow. So I thought I'd peruse the interweb looking for a replacement, but it seems I'll have to do the fixing myself.

Then comes Pinterest.

I'm going to just patch my elbows instead of searching for a cardigan that doesn't exist, and wait until the stores shape up and make some more.

And here's an easy-to-follow tutorial.
and another.
and this is interesting.
what's with the stuffed animal? but I like the patches. several ideas from her.

has anyone else attempted this?

I bought some felt with adhesive on the back.  I would re-enforce it with extra stitching just to be sure.
