Be inspired: Crochet Elbow Patches

I have wanted to make elbow patches to add to my kids sweaters for a long time. I don't know why, I just think it is cute and it adds a cute flair to a simple sweater. I bought my sweet pea's sweater on clearance at Old Navy and decided to match the oval patch red to match the heart in the front. My little man's sweater is royal blue and it was also a clearance purchase, but at H&M - for his sweater I intend to add mustard patches. {hopefully soon}
You can find a lot of tutorials on how to make ovals on the internet, I started with 8 chains and worked 3 rounds for my daughter's 2T sweater and sew it with matching thread. You can see a good tutorial here.
If you end up adding elbow patches to your kids' clothes, share you pictures, I would love to see what you come up with!
