Ric Rac

Ric Rac (or Rick Rack) is a decorative zig zag trim which can be used on a wide assortment of clothing and craft based projects. 

For a number of years now I have collected vintage packets of ric rac and I just LOVE all the different brands and packaging I have found in my travels. The gorgeous vintage colours really appeal to me and are very different to what you can buy these days. I think if you are sewing with vintage fabrics it is really nice to use vintage trims too and vintage ric rac is no exception.

I particularly LOVE it on vintage aprons – and many of my ‘pinnys’ are embellished with it, usually on the top of the pocket or around the hem line. What fun I have had wearing them in the Crafty Squirrel as I play shop keeper!

This afternoon I got all inspired and dug out some old red ric rac that I had in my stash and turned it into this ric rac rosette ring – it was quick and easy to make and is a lovely way to show off ric rac in a different way.

Thanks Alison :-) the best part is all of this ric rac and more is for sale in the Crafty Squirrel! I will make some rings to sell at the Maribyrnong Makers Market but it won't be the September one as this is my big annual sale. I will have some at the Christmas one in Nov!
