I am obsessed with elbow patches ... hooray! I keep wanting to do a sewing project with them, except I would like to make a top with "nontraditional" patch shapes ... like hearts or kitty cat faces :)

Love the preppy vibe of elbow patches. They remind me of my dad's vintage blazers. Hope your week is off to a great start!
