First of all I cut a piece of batting to fit inside the whole as the dog had ripped a chunk of the batting out as well.
Then I made myself up a flower template and cut out a flower motive more than big enough to cover the area and I tried my first hand at needle turn applique and appliqued it on to cover the hole
Then I decided that it just needed a little bit more so I decided to add some hand quilting with perle 8 thread and I was so happy that I decided to as I feel like it really finished it off.
And this is what my finished product ended up looking like and I was more than happy with how it turned out and think that the repair worked brilliantly. So if you find yourself in the same predicament ( which hope no one ever does) don't panic there might be some way in which you can repair it.
Later on that night when I got up to check on everyone I found that we had our guard cat on duty to make sure that there were no naughty puppies to make the same mistake twice.
