Needing help fellow bloggers - can you save the day ????


There is about to be a damsel in distress ..... as most of you know soph is moving out of the
supported unit she is in to independent living ... shes moving into a little flat with a support worker visiting once a week - and me everyday ofcourse ! 
Well bloggers disaster has struck ... soph saw some curtains on ebay - they very ones she wanted

listed as new and undamaged ... they arrived today - obviously seconds and ripped !!!!!

Bought for £55 plus £7.00 postage - alot of money for ripped seconds !
 A label cut like that are seconds - i am very annoyed this was not stated on the listing at all !!!

Nor was the mention of the rip on the eyelet !
A refund was asked for but the seller will not give the refund untill she recieves the  curtains  back ... soph is gonna end up out of pocket ..and very disapointed - grrrrrrrrrrr  the curtains are heavy and i do not trust the seller to say she has recieved them or to give the refund -  why should we if the listing was dishonest to start with ???  if a dispute with ebay is opened soph will
not get the money back intime to kit the flat out - she gets the keys next week...
So .... can anyone advise if this can be mended ????
and the best place ( cheap to lol ) in leeds if it can be ? 


As you can see the eyelet looks like its come away - it is in fact more ripped on the edge of it , rather than pulled away from the eyelet .. if these were used the material would rip further everytime they were drawn closed..... can this be repaired ? i am not brill with sewing - but if it can be repaired is it simple to do ie could a non expert do it ?
 

I'd be so grateful for advise on this as soph set her heart on these.
Thanks fellow bloggers xxxxxxxx
