Wall hanging update.

After leaving it in soak all night, there was still some of the permanent pen marks left trapped under the machine stitching, sooooo, I dunked it in bleach and left it for five hours. Still marks showing, sooooo, I then dunked it in tea. No, still the marks were visible. Sooooo, I then dyed it with ecru procion dye a la Ruth Issett. I was quite worried when I was rinsing it, as it was more a mushroom colour than ecru, but it got lighter with rinsing and getting lighter as it dries. I will have to see what it looks like in the morning.
