I have been thinking about this one all year Roll Eyes and have come up with nothing on my own. I have a wonderfully warm jacket from my old job that I LOVE! The only problem is that it still has the logo embroidered on the front. I no longer work there so I want to cover it up somehow without ruining the jacket itself. There is nothing on the back and the part I want to cover is roughly 6" long x 3/4" tall. The jacket is 100% nylon on the shell (really sturdy material) and a heavy fleece underneath. What do you fine craftsters out there reccommend? The cheapest suggestion using anything I have on hand wins! Thanks guys!  Grin

You could unpick the embroidery carefully with a pair of embroidery scissors - I have done that before; but it leaves marks, so it would be advisable to cover the place with a brand new embellishment when you're done.

Sew a band of fabric to look like ribbon to cover the embroidery and repeat it it on the cuffs to tie it together.

Hand embroider a new badge to put over it. You know, something funny and relevant to who you are. For example I might be inclined to make a badge saying "No, I Will Not Sew For You" or "Will Dance for Vintage Buttons."
