Sweater Fix

My favorite purple cardigan got a few moth holes in it a couple of years ago.  I've been just wearing it with a dark shirt underneath, but I wanted to actually try to fix it.

I read online that you could needle felt the holes back together, and that worked on the smaller holes, but not on that big one.

So I cut a little moth shape out of another old sweater and stitched it on.  I hope it looks like a moth and not like a giant tooth.

It's a little strange, but hey, I'm a Spanish teacher and I can wear crazy things  I'm a librarian and I'm supposed to wear cardigans all the time, right?

Strange but fine, or too strange - try again?

I think it's clever and cute.
