    This is how bored i was with out my computer.I put these on a tee shirt by hand.I did put sewing machine stitches around the out side just to make sure.Do you think it needs anything else.

    Great suggestions! Even a button in each one (& not necessarily centered) would be cute.

    Buttons---and how about a ribbon bow in each yo-yo, with the buttons in the center of the bow?

    I could try a blanket stitch around the outer edge.

    The suggestions given are very very good ones. Buttons and or bows would be my chioce.

    Also, the project is very well done. I think it just might need the zip of another color? Not alot of it, just a tad. Like maybe yellow? without knowing what the shirt is for, I can not be sure of this.

    What if you created a "Chain" with a decorative stitch to make it look like a necklace? You could do the chain in a golden yellow.

    I like it how it looks now. Too much more and it could be overkill. Right now it is simple and not too overpowering.

    It doesn't need anything but it would be fun maybe to do some buttons. There are so many possibilities

    I would embroider a "chain" to hold all those "pearls" together and make it look like a necklace. OOps didn't see BeckyL's reply. We think alike.

    A little black edge, maybe a very narrow black ribbon just outside the edge of those great GFG blocks

    I'm not the greatest at this sort of thing but I agree with some buttons or lace, have you though about doing some big swirly free motion type stitches over the shirt and the applique to tie them together? It is cute! Can I send you some of my shirts? LOL I need some added pizzaz on mine!

    Or maybe add more of the same up to the seam line to make it look like a full necklace
