Approximate Time 15 - 30 minutes for most projects

Determine how wide the area is if you are using this method to hide a stain or repair. Make sure what you buy will cover and overlap by at least a little. Pin into place and baste by hand or machine with matching thread. Try on clothing to be sure it lays correctly, and make any necessary adjustments. Sew to clothing using thread that matches the addition.

also if you have old underwear that is past its best but the lace is still good and bright - carefully cut this off the garment and it can make lovely trims on plain t-shirts - especially if you put a few scattered sequins and beads onto the lace in a matchin colour.
