Rebecca was given this perfectly nice pink and white sweater a few months ago, but it has proven to be completely unwearable. I don't know if clothing from other countries suffers the same fate, but a lot of stuff from China (I'm a proud Chinese-American so no one should think I'm racist) has just *ridiculous* English writing on it.
"Beny knedee?" Or is that an "h?" "Hnedee?" "Beny?" Anyone got a clue on that one? Ugh. *Any*way, it's been cold here. Like, highs in the low 50s (trust me, that's practically unheard of here in So Cal), and my girls really don't have very many sweaters. And it was such a waste to have this one sitting there, exactly the right size, in colors Rebecca loves, simply collecting dust.
I thought of removing the embroidery and the heart, but after looking at the construction, I realized that just wasn't going to work. So I took a cue from the flowers along the bottom, and made some crocheted flowers one night. I hand-sewed them on this afternoon, but I'm not entirely convinced that I've fixed the problem.
What's the verdict? Wearable now? Or not?
