When I dressed Purnah for my open house last fall, she looked like she wanted a little something more. So I started pinning scraps of red fabric on her, vaguely inspired by a Japanese obi (literally, sash).
Now the sash is sitting in my sewing basket, which I keep near the couch for family movies (about the only time I sit still). Two episodes of Downton = detail quilting on my obi. Can't wait till it's washed and all roughed up.
