Repairing a Bleach Spot on Blue Polo Sweater?

I have a dark blue polo sweater that I love and spilled bleach on it. Any suggestions on what I can do to save it and not throw it away?

If the spots are not very large, you could try to find a marker which matches the sweater's color, and fill them in. If you use a permanent marker, you won't have to do it every time the sweater is washed. If the spots are in a place where some trim would look good, you could get smaller decorative patches or a large one and cover the spots. These would be available at a fabric store. I have used marker to fill in bleach spots on pants, and it worked well. Hope this helps.

Is the sweater cotton? then you can use a colored marker to match & color in the bleach spot(s) if they are not too big. On wool or acrylic use a permanent marker (black will do for small spots on navy.)
