[pull this thread as i walk away]

blog,January 2010

my daughter is obsessed with this little tweed dress coat of hers! she's always prancing around the house in suit while holding her babies.

as we headed into church last sunday and noticed this wardrobe malfunction, my heart sank for a second...

will she notice? will she have a mini come apart?
thankfully only a few of us noticed & i new i should probably fix it quick. worst case scenario i just snip off the white thread and just let her keep wearing it as is.

a thought popped into my mind, just make both sides match!
not wanting to un-thread the left side, i decided i would make a million & one uses out of a sharpie!

weezer's undone here


  1. Way to go Amelia! The coat looks like it was supposed to be that way :)
    We recently bought a scratch and dent entertainment center for our family room. It is beautiful and we got a great deal on it. The only bad part was that it did have a few little scratches on the front of it. Thank goodness it was black and that Chad is a Sharpie magician. He pulled it out, touched up our awesome new piece of furniture, and I'll tell you what, you would never know that those imperfections were there! Gotta love the Sharpies!

  2. that is so great! You get the mother of the year award and maybe up for the purple heart for saving a minor/major melt down!

  3. I've cut the white tags off of decorative pillows and then used a marker the same color as the pillow to hide the remains of the tag.
    When the corners of your quilt blocks don't line up perfectly sometimes a marker can help.
    If you sew on ric rac and some of the underneath color peeks out just sharpie away, much better than re-sewing.
