DIY: Sweater With Leather Pieces Panel

by Maria

Last week I showed you in this look my last project, a DIY sweater with a figure of geometric shapes made of leather pieces. I felt inspired when I saw this sweater on Galliano's show and the idea of my own version came to mind. As promised, today you have the tutorial. It was the first time I used fabric glue and the experience has been so good, I'm going to repeat it soon. Let's start?


- Simple plain sweater

- Leather and PU pieces in different colours

- Scissors

- Fabric glue

- Pins

- Template

You can print/create the template twice or just take a picture with the mobile to know how the pieces go once you start cutting all the figure. Cut the pieces of the template and fix each with a pin on the piece of leather/PU you want to do each, taking into account the combination of colours that will result. I've used some pieces of PU I bought and suede and leather from old footwear that I was keeping for future DIYs. Cut the leather pieces with the template. and, while you are cutting them, create over the table the figure to check if the mix of colours is what you were looking for.

Once it is all cut, place all the pieces on the sweater in the correct place and start glueing them, one by one, on the sweater following the glue instructions. When all of it is fixed to the sweater, leave it dry for some hours. Maybe you'll see that some of the borders are not completely glued to the fabric, so, using a toothpick to can add some glue to these parts.Et voilà!
