I got my LE Violets OBV...

And I want to say first that I LOVE the color and the squishiness - yum! But there are marks around some of the snaps... they look like pen marks? Do all new GMs come like this? Will it wash out? Also, some of the snaps don't seem to be lining up correctly.

I have another GM that I borrowed from SIL and all of those snaps line up properly but with this one, I really have to stretch to reach some and others the fabric gets all bunched up. My SIL's GM is a print, is this just because mine is an OBV? When it shrinks in the wash, will it solve this?

Help!

Probably just the marks from placing the snaps, it should wash right out

Yep, I e-mailed her! I know she'll respond because she's very good about that, but in the meantime I was just wondering if anyone had experienced this before and it was totally normal.

Know what I mean?

I would have washed it first, or touched it with water. Have you tried to spot clean with just plain water? Usually those pen marks from sewing placement come right off. I had a WAHM pocket with that once, blue marks. Came off immediately.
