    No, I haven't totally lost my mind. Here's what happened-

    Last week while I was doing laundry, bleach splashed up on my favorite black sweater and it took the color right out and left a hideous reddish/pink spot.

    well, today I took my permanent black ink pad and inked that sucker up good, then rinsed & rinsed to get the excess out and ...
    <drum roll please>

    The sweater is back (or should I say Black) to normal!! YEAH!!!

    You'd never know it even happend. Now whether it will fade out over time in the wash, I don't know. But it is a cardigan I wear around the house, so I figured it was worth a try!

    A Thomas the Tank Engine shirt of DS had navy blue sleeves with some small bleach dots on them. I would only see this when I was doing laundry, and wanted to get a sharpie to color in the dots, but he grew out of it!

    ok, i did the math...

    inked sweater + pin(embellishment)=altered sweater



    Sadly Laurat, i too will probably grow out of this sweater at some point, but not in a good way.

    hey you gals are laughing with me, right??

    I did something similar years ago. When cleaning my apartment before turning in the keys I knocked over a bleach container in the bathroom and it spilled on the hallway gray carpet. This happened minutes before I was leaving for good. It left big light yellow areas. I went to work and got every gray permanent rendering marker that we had, the big fat ones, and colored in the carpet so I wouldn't lose my deposit. It looked great - could barely notice.
