To salvage a shirt with an ink stain on the pocket seam, try creative camouflage. Stitch bias tape around the seam: The stain will disappear and the shirt will have an instant new look. Cut single-fold bias tape 1/2 inch longer than three pocket sides (excluding top). Pin tape over one side, make a diagonal fold at the corner, and iron. Continue around seam, ironing next corner. Pin top edges under, and topstitch around edges.
