When I finished up the applique it still needed a little something, so I came up with this little ric rac flower. I just sewed it right down the middle of the ric rac, pulled the threads (very carefully!! ric rac is pretty stiff and you thread can easily break if you're not careful), and gathered it. I then formed it into a little flower, stitching the back of it together as I went. And to sew it on the the shirt I first ironed on a piece of interfacing to the inside of the shirt since knit is such a lightweight fabric and I didn't want it to tear a hole under the weight of the flower.
