Don't Scrap it...Fix it!

If you read yesterday's post, you know I was at my wits end when I accidentally serged a hole in the new outfit I was making for my baby to wear to Quilt Market. Oooopsie! Well, since I paid $12.99 a yard at a local quilt shop for the fabric, didn't have enough to start over, and didn't have time to run back to the store to get more, I had to do something to fix it. Luckily, it was in a spot that was not too difficult to do that. If you find yourself in a similar predicament, here's a little something you can do to save your project.

Here's my hole, on the right leg of the romper, just above the ruffles.

I  added fusible interfacing to the back, mended the hole, then added more interfacing on the front.

 I decided to make a cute little felt bird applique that matched the bird on the fabric.

So, I drew a simple template, cut out my pieces, and stitched on a little eye with embroidery floss. I sewed the wing on, then positioned the applique to cover the hole and carefully stitched it in place.

Good as new!!!

I'll try my best to post a picture of Abby in the outfit at Quilt looks so cute on!
