Catch everyone's eye with pompom trim on sleeves

Have you always loved the look of fringe but thought it might be a little too much for you? Try pompoms instead. Shorter than fringe, when used sparingly, pompoms also draw the eye with their movements yet don't overwhelm an outfit.
The tutorial uses black on black, but you may use any shirt and pompom combination. Try turquoise pompoms with a white shirt, white pompoms with a red shirt, or black with a green shirt. Just make sure to use thread that matches the shirt, as you will be able to see the seam on the outside.

Instructions
1. Place the shirt flat on a work surface, and smooth out the fabric.
2. Pin the ribbon part of the pompoms to the inside of a sleeve's perimeter. Make sure the ribbon is concealed but the pompoms hang out of the sleeve. Cut off any excess ribbon.
3. Repeat step 2 for the other sleeve.
4. Hand-sew or machine sew a straight stitch along the sleeves' perimeters where the ribbon is attached. Remove the pins as you sew. Trim the excess thread.
