Embellishing A Stained Shirt

One of my shirts got a stain on the front that I couldn't get out after multiple washings. 

I don't know what the spot even was but it does look a lot like snot, doesn't it? 

This shirt was a $1 yard sale find a couple of years back so I could've just tossed it. I really like it though so I decided to try to salvage it. 

It hung in my closet for a while before I finally came up with a cute solution. 

I got a handful of pink crocheted roses for 25 cents at a yard sale last Saturday. When I got home, I realized how cute one of those roses would look sewn onto the shirt to hide the stain. 

It took only a few minutes to sew sone scrap fabric leaves and the rose to the shirt. 

I love the results and I can keep wearing this shirt!  

Frugality and resourcefulness at its finest!
