Country Farmer - with color stains :(

Here is one of the pieces that I stitched couple of years back when I just started doing cross stitching. Once the stitching is complete, I washed the piece(totally out of ignorace).....I agree it is the most stupidest thing. Now seeing the piece, my heart really sinks.

Do you have any ideas on how to get those red color stains (near the apples and the head of the roster). I love this piece and want to finish it into something but seeing the stains I am backing off..... :(

I don't know what is the name of this pattern - so just made it up as Country Farmer. So here is the stained piece. Any suggestions are highly appreciable.........

Country Farmer (2007)

Happy Stitching......

  1. I wash all my pieces that are on ordinary (not hand dyed) fabric that use DMC or Anchor floss. Reds you have to be careful of but generally washing is ok.

    I'd use Napisan - no idea what the US equivalent of that would be. It's the soaker we use for diapers and whites.

    Good luck getting the stains out... it's a cute piece.
