GUTTED

Was unpicking a couple of mistakes earlier and have made a hole in the fabric by tugging too hard.  I'm sooooo upset I don't know what to do. I've read about patching but that just seems too difficult in such a densely stitched piece and would probably take more time to do neatly than the dreaded restart but even saying that word restart is making me cry. ARGH.

  1. oh no :( I guess its worth trying patching up at least, it might just work :)

  2. I know that this probably sounds like bad advice, but I would actively hide it for a while and then come back to it. I stained the fabric on a really big projects that I was working on, and for quite a while, I couldn't even look at it. Once I put it away, though, I ended up getting it back out, ready to find some way to fix it. Still, it's really bad when something like that happens, so I hope it works out. Best of luck!

  3. Oh no!! =( I've never had that happen so I'm afraid I don't have any practical advice on how to fix it. Restart is such an ugly word, but it may end up being the best option. I'm really sorry!
