Clothing Emergency, Help!

I was washing a cute new cotten jersey knit cardigan given to me by my friend, Rachel. In that same load unbeknownst to me was a red crayon from a pocket of my son's pants.
The red crayon melted all over the cardigan.
I am so sad! I loved it!
What can I do to remove the crayon?
Or maybe my only recourse is to dye it? Burgundy would be cute, it is 95% cotton and only 5% spandex, will that dye easily? What about the white stitching on the edges, will it dye too?
I've never had that great of success with dying red things really red? Any good dyers out there?
Please help!
Oh, I am just so sad, magic eraser did get it out of my dryer drum, but what about my poor poor jacket, sob!!

I sure I can muster up something like it in my closet if it will keep you sane! :)

Oh, I am so sorry. Try googling it to see if there is an answer out there. I hate it when I do things like that: (

I don't have an answer but the google idea may work!

Sorry I can't help you out there.

But, Oh how I love the magic eraser!

I have a friend who majored in arts and crafts and fabric dyes - no kidding. She would know what to do and how to set the dye to make it permanent. She makes her own wool and dyes and she knits amazing things. Incredibly resourceful girl...

I found your site via my friend Mer's. I read your bio which mentioned the Pacific NW and I live in Kirkland, WA. I was curious to know where you're from.
