My youngest son has a rat as a pet. Ratatouille is really quite a nice little pet. He enjoys riding around on my son’s shoulders and loves to eat cheese from my hand. His only drawback is that anything that comes into contact with the bars on his cage is chewed into nothingness.
One morning, he took off his robe and instead of putting it away, he just threw in down. Obviously, it came too close to the rat cage!
It took me quite awhile to find fabric that would match. This fabric doesn’t match exactly, but it’s really close. Since the holes were so big and numerous, I cut a panel of fabric that would be sewn to the inside of the robe and cover all of the holes.
The I pinned the panel in place and sewed around the outside of it.
Then I turned the robe so that the right side was facing me, trimmed the edges of the holes so that they were not so ragged, pinned around them and…
Sewed the edges down to the backing panel.
This is what the holes looked like after they were trimmed and the edges were sewn down.
Not perfect but…
I think he will now put his robe away every time!!
