    Looking good, Mo! I’ve done similar “repair” jobs.One time, a child splodged lurid blue ice block on my white skirt.Hours before I could get home to soak it…though it faded a little, that stuff was permanent!But I turned it into a hydrangea, chopped 6″ off the hem and wore it to tennis. 🙂

  2. What a loving gesture and unique! If you have fabric pens, you might touch up parts to help the definition if you like. I use fabric pens for this all the time.

    That looks great Mo! Perhaps I will use it when I´m mending my grandsons favorite jeans.
