Cover ugly logos with appliqué circles
I never say no to hand-me-down clothes for my kids, but sometimes they have some pretty ugly logos, stains or tears in them. But it's a shame to get rid of them because of a small detail, so I like to cover them up in some way or other.
For example, this shirt with a sparkly silver logo across the front. The fabric is a nice thick jersey, so I definitely wanted to keep it. So I dug into my jersey scraps and chose some different shades of blue. (I tend to have a lot of used blue t-shirts, so I often use an ombre effect, like I did with this other solution to cover logos or stains.)
And I whipped up some quick overlapping circles and sewed them on over the logo. The trick to sewing nice even appliqué stitches on jersey fabric is to use a tear-away stabilizer.
And now the shirt's better than it had ever been in the first place! For more information on this quick fix (and a tutorial on how to appliqué on knit fabric with tear-away stabilizer), visit my blog, Cucicucicoo!
