I had this grey top for a little while and it's ok, but as you might be being to realise is I like colour. Little splashes of it. I was going to do a full length video of it, but I had a couple of problems with the filming so I have a small video of some of the making but only a little bit.
I'll do a normal blog as always, with a couple of photos and the small vid.
I brought this red cord which has felt hearts and beads, I brought it from ebay.

The top I brought was from George (Asda).
To sew on the cord there are two ways, the first is to sew it by machine or by hand. Because the cord is a bit squiffy I decided to use my machine.
To do this I used ZigZag Stitch at the settings: width 1.5 - 2; length 2. I used red thread because unless you want the stitch as a decoration, you go by the colour of whatever goes on top.
This link is a video; I tried to add the video to the page but it didn't work so here is the link; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7u2cctwzyBw&feature=youtu.be .
This video is an example of what to do to sew this cord on this top. At each each bead and heart area, I go back, forwards, back. I then move the foot over the heart and beads and stitch forwards, back, forwards and repeat.
Once all sewn and, using a pin I pulled the loose thread from the front to the back. I tied a knot with each set of loose ends.
I forgot to add if anyone would like to know how to make the cord roughly let me know in the comments and I'll make a video.
The finished item.
