||(+) Funny story.
A friend of the family did some ironing once while staying at my folks place. They didn't have an ironing board so she put a paper bag down on the berber carpet and proceeded to melt the Christmas image on the bag into the carpet.
I was a carpet installer at that time so cutting the mess out and patching the hole were easy. My step mom had the piece I cut out mounted and framed for her as a present the next year.
||+ sure, I can have a bunch of my blouses fixed this way!
||Brilliant, but I'd change the name. +
||Nice! Kinda surprised that there's nothing like it on here. +
||Update: The owners of said carpet chose the
literal disappearance of the stain rather than the
disappearance via artistic feature.
