We have a few days left in February…have you thought about the month’s recession challenge? I spent most of the month thinking before I finally decided on a project. I had about a yard of ball trim - not enough to trim the hem of another skirt, but plenty to encircle my waist, edge sleeves, or finish the ends of a scarf. When I found that the color was a perfect match for this jacket, I settled for stitching it around the waistband. I chose hand basting over using fusible web tape so that I could remove it if I tire of the little balls.
As you complete the challenge, either leave me a comment or send me an email. If you blog about your creation, send me the link. If you’re not a blogger, feel free to send a picture and/or description and I’ll include it in a final round-up. Please note that this isn’t a contest – I’d like everyone to share their results for inspiration, not competition.
