What type of fabric is best to cover up a logo on a shirt? I want something that won't fray when worn or washed properly.
I might suggest using a sew-on decorative patch (sometimes called applique) instead. Lots to choose from on ebay and Joann's has some too.
I have an Aeropostale logo on my work shirts. Actually two of them, and my boss just told me after 3 months of wearing them that I cannot wear them with the logos. I don't want to go out and pay $18 a piece + S/H for shirts for my job that have their logo. (We can wear plain red no logo of any type). So I have tried fabric paint and it just well...see picture upload. I don't have a clue as to how to remove the embroidery without putting a hole in my favorite work shirts! And these are so comfortable and cool because I am in and out of hot and cold weather with my job probably about 30 times a day, and it makes the fabric look really stiff if that makes any sense. Any help would be very much appreciated!
Get something called a seam ripper. You can get it on amazon or any sewing store. Turn on your favorite tv show and carefully hook only the thread, not the underlying fabric.
Essentially you will need to undo the stitching. It is going to be tedious, but you will need some tweezers and a seam ripper. (If you are very experienced, some can use a sharp knife).
Or do you know if you can:
Good luck! Hope you figure it out.
