Hiding a Stain with Embroidery



I had a white skirt that had gotten some sort of discoloration/stain on it that I just couldn't get out.  Even bleach couldn't touch it.  So, to salvage the skirt, I covered the stain with embroidered flowers.  (This probably wouldn't work for dark stains)




The stain is virtually undetectable now with the yellow flowers covering it.
My embroidery was inspired by this dress:

  2. I love this idea! I'm a huge clutz while eating so it seems like most of my clothes get a stain! I will definitely be trying this!
