2 totally separate questions

1. many people claim their own tuition/schooling costs on their taxes, but if you pay someone else's, are you allowed to claim that? (for example, if a boyfriend pays for his girlfriend, a parent for his/her child, etc.) 2. any tips on sewing a hole on a very old stuffed animal? it's not on a seam or under an arm (it's about an inch below where the head attaches to the body and about a thumbnail size), and the stuffed animal is about 25.5 yrs old. I don't sew but don't have any idea how to find someone who could stitch it without risking more damage and I want it to look as close to possible as if the hole never existed. thanks!
