Here is what I decided to do, the jacket was to have x stitch at bottom of the jacket , but I used the wrong color and the part that was to length the design got turned in the wrong direction I though about it for a day instead of trashing it, I redesigned the jacket cutting off the bottom and adding a color the go well with the sweat shirt color I cut it at sorta of an angle making it concave and convicts with top stitching along the seam plan to do a decorative stitch but the sweatshirt material the stitches just buried into the knit so I just used a regular stitch then I will put some small beads along the seam as well. I also reaped the design on the sleeves and Liked the effect. will put a picture on cuties when it is all finished.

I've had a couple of times where it has been too hard to even unpick, so the first one went into the bin. The other time I unpicked all the stitching, took hours, but it was worth it. Haven't done any mistakes since. Touch wood!!!! Love Chris

Many years ago I embroidered fabric for a cornice board. It was more than 60 inches long. I had embroidered some 59 designs and had one more to go. That last one was a hot mess because I had switched from 40 wt. to 12 wt. thread. Needless to say I was sick. I decided I had to try to save it. I cut that part out as close to embroidered part as possible, put a piece of the fabric behind the hole, enlarged the design enough to cover the hole and tried again with 40 wt. thread. All was well. The cornice has been in my sewing room for almost 20 years and I still love it!
I must admit if it is something that is not very important to me, I usually file it in 13...……..lol
Good luck with saving your project as I know that can be heart breaking when things don't turn out as we expect.

For our non-American sisters, File 13 is the trash can.

Okay I've used both of those solutions. My first big goof, I hooped a tiny infant sweater by rolling it around the hoop, like a onesie. I stitched a monkey on it and when I de-hooped, OOPS! Monkey was upside down. I keep it near my machine to remind me of how easy it is to mess up. The other one I keep was a very tall design on a sweatshirt, which I hooped maybe 2 degrees off of straight. I named that sweatshirt "Eileen". Sometimes, you just save the goof for practice cloth or stitchouts, then pitch. Once in a great while I try picking out the goof, but it's no fun.
