DD#3 and her Golden Retriever have been with us for a while, prior to her May 20th wedding. The Golden Retriever has a stuffed rabbit as a toy. She had chewed a hole in the bottom of one of the rabbit's feet. My daughter (who KNOWS that I have sewn all of *her* life) asked if I had fabric to repair the hole. ::bonk head on wall::
Yes, dear, I have fabric to repair the hole.
However, I can't just *repair* the hole. I need to do a Good Job. So, I made a flower unit from 1/4" hexies. QUARTER INCH HEXIES. Good gosh, 1/4" hexies are **small**! But, the rabbit has a cute little EPP flower on the sole of its foot.
This photo is a picture of the damage with preliminary repair work: I stuffed the hole with more fiber fill, inserted a piece of muslin under the tear and whip stitched the torn fabric to the muslin.
This photo shows the flower unit made of 1/4" hexies covering up the basic repair.
Ah, the things we do for a Grand-dog.
Excellent work, Ms Shelley, excellent work.
If Grand-dog starts to chew on this area again, I recommend the teeniest, tiniest micro touch of hot pepper sauce on the center of the blossom.

How about the other feet?
Of the dog? or rabbit? LOL!
The dog's feet are just fine, as are the rabbit's ..... **so far**! :-)
Very nice group effort!
When you do a sewing job you do it well! lol I only hope next time the dog decides to eat one of the other feet and not your cute little Lexi flower! :)
You're crazy, but you sure did a great job! LOL!!!! :D
What a lovely patch job! I just did some repairs on a well loved quilt at my dads house…..but it sure wasn’t perfection! Like yours.
I have figured out how to do the Tree of Life!
Terial Magic to the rescue... I knew I needed to 'stiffen' the antimascassar...stuff worked on the Tree too, but sheesh, its taking a super long time to get all the way dry! I will still have to put the netting over it but its on its way!
