Well instead of throwing it out - or even upcycling it somehow, I managed to patch it with an iron on embroidered patch. Sheesh I am feeling pretty clever with myself.
The ladybird patch! Once ironed on - I did sew it on as well for extra strength and protection!

I couldn't help myself, I added a trail with some embroidery thread.
My skirt all ready to go - now just to shave the overgrown forest that has appeared on my jean cladded legs and I will be ready to wear my most loved piece of clothing again!
