Anthro’s site is great for inspiration.  There are so many ideas there that beg to be mimicked!  After she bought some gorgeous placemats with a funky pom pom trim from them, Maureen from Maureen Cracknell Handmade decided to add the same look to her apron as well.  It’s amazing how a scrap of fabric can transform a fuzzy little ball from something you use in a kiddie collage project into a much more elegant form!  (If you don’t like this degree of funkiness, she also shows how the pom poms look with the funky ends sewn inside a pillow so that just the ball portion is showing!)  [how to make Anthropologie-inspired pom pom trim]
