Sometimes Things go wrong

When I first started making plastic bead patterns I was a little too ambitious...

Apologies for the blur. The picture was just for prosperity (the work I do is so important!)

And didn't know how to repair mistakes. 

The real kick in the pants--this was my second attempt, with the same results.

But now I know how to repair managable mishaps. Masking tape, tweezers, and an iron. As long as the missing chunk isn’t too big, tape the area, flip, stick the errant beads to the tape and iron the upside until it it melds. Flip, remove the tape, and iron the other side. Don’t forget to cover with paper during each ironing! If you don’t put on that paper, you’ll have a far nastier mess than loose beads.
