Hiding cloths defects (tears, holes, spots, stains and discolourings)

Multitasking and rushing sometimes end up in “harming” my favorite clothes, getting stains or spots on them which cannot be taken off with regular washing, or small tears and holes… Rather than throwing them away or making them become ‘home clothes’, I found an easy and effective way to hide those defects in a creative way.

In case of a small stain or hole I use mainly embroidery thread in order to make flowers (using chain stitch for a flower’s petals and French knot for the centre) and for big defects I crochet flowers.
