Repairing an Iron-on Transfer

I ironed a picture on material, but the edges came out with some missing areas. Also, the picture looks like it has lines going through it. How can I fix this? Any ideas will be welcome. Thank you.

Is this a gift or for sale? If the first, depending on what pieces are missing and what the Iron on is of, paint markers for fabric, or fabric paint itself might be used to fill in the missing lines and pieces. They come in sets sometimes of basic colors. I think this would be best for the missing edges, just sort of redraw the areas so they will match up with whats there.

Or perhaps you could add faux jewels etc. over some of the missing parts. It is key to let the transfer cool completely before trying to remove the backing, always remove it slowly and evenly; use even pressure when ironing and follow manufacturer's directions for how long to press and how hot the iron should be. Most of the time, do not use steam, dry iron only.
