Octopus Love Sweater DIY

Need to spruce up an old sweater?  Why not embroider an octopus on it?  Add a heart and you're all set for Valentine's Day!  Did you know that an Octopus has 3 hearts?  Perfect don't you think?
This project is so easy, you'll want to up-style all of your sweaters with this technique.  Have fun and Happy Valentine's Day!

I can't wait to wear this!
Here's the how to video
 You'll need:
A sweater
Large sheet of newspaper
Red fabric
E-6000 Stitch Less Iron On Glue
Black yarn and large needle
Trace the shape of your sweater on the large sheet of newspaper
Draw your Octopus
Cut it out
Place it on your sweater and lightly trace it with a permanent marker or chalk
 Thread your needle with the yarn and start a running stitch every 3/8 inch along your traced line
Keep going all the way around until you're done
If you have to add more yarn, tie a knot and then secure the knot with E-6000 Fray Lock to make sure it never separates
Cut out a red fabric heart
Lightly sprad some E-6000 Stitch Less glue on the back of the fabric-This will turn the heart into an iron-on patch!
Iron it on and you're done!
