Becky from Patchwork Posse shows how to make a woven fabric accent you can add to just about any sewing project. Use it on a pillow, or a pouch, or even garments. She shows the one she made sewn into the front of a zippered pouch. If you want to make one, too, she gives a link to a previously published tutorial showing how to make the pouch. I think it would also be cool to add them to a sweatshirt or other knitwear, with the strips cut from knit fabric. Go to Patchwork Posse for the tute.
