Approved BB submission
Was about to get rid of this sweater I've had for the last decade because I didn't want this embroidery, but then decided I like the sweater too much to get rid of it! Time to get rid of this embroidery instead! 😏

Used my seam ripper, x-acto knife, and tweezers. Now to wash it to get rid of all the fuzz.
