It started with a hole

Have a soft and comfy T-shirt with a small mystery hole. DANG!
What's a girl to do?
A girl with a sewing machine AND a long strip of black and white gingham selvage from her latest fringed scarf jag?

Placed shirt on form and had the gingham scrap coiled in my left hand and let it drop. I shit you not, it fell almost as you see it in the top photo. What could be easier? Pinned it and tacked down with a fast and sloppy stretch zigzag stitch. Added a big old vintage button to flower's center.
Still have the hole but not visible to the naked eye. Did that sound nasty to you too? You're welcome.
