Craft of the Week

Trimming a Tee:
Leftover snippets of ribbon and rickrack can make that T-shirt yours, and yours alone. Follow the curve of a neckline, the perimeter of a pocket, or the edge of a sleeve with a straight stitch, using thread that matches the trim. Easier still, use iron-on ribbon. When measuring the ribbon, add about 1/4 inch extra at each end so that raw edges can be turned in or overlapped when they're sewed.
