Stitch the hole up and conceal it


With a pearlmaker pen

Pearlmaker pens are very easy to use. Just paint and let it dry. They usually need no ironing and can be washed and ironed. If you don't know them, they are like this one (click). There are quite some colours available.

This method is as simple as it can be. Just paint!
You can either paint free what comes into your mind at the moment. Or print out a motif, cut it out, trace it onto the fabric and follow the lines.

There are two ways for using a pearlmaker pen. One, you actually conceal the hole by painting over it. Two, you use the stitched up hole as a special mark of your motif.

Here's what I've tried so far:
