Never let me near wet paint! The blue paint smear on the knee of my pants, gave me an idea for saving. Put this hero standing in blue water (paint). Unfirtunately, I was hurried and didn't plan ahead...it is upside down. Lost khaki pants anyway-sob.

I think you are the “hero”. Placing the bird in the exact place.

Great suggestions, but I decided to cover with pockets ( I love pockets- phone, coins, etc).

Well as an Aussie, if I did that I'd just say

"I come from the land downunder and that's how we see everything!"

Ha ha ha!!!! Love Chris

I love Martine's idea of sewing it right side up and it would look like a reflection! Sounds like a good idea!!

I think I'd leave it just as it is. It would make a great conversation starter! Sometimes, what I think are the worst problems turn out to be something wonderful.

Could you sew it upside down as well, so it looks like a reflection?

Great idea!!!

I might have tried that if I had not leaped ahead w/pockets. Just casual pants, so the 'carry-alls' will be handy. Thx for suggestion...next time I will try that. If I get blue paint on me..haha

Awesome save. Well the idea and all. I would probably cut him out, in a rounded square. Make another rounded square of a light color material. Sew that in the area and put the embroidered piece back on with a decor stitch. I really love your idea.

If the design is above the knee, it would be perfect for you to look at. Also a great conversation starter. Lol!
