Rick Rack Rocks!

As you may recall, I recently acquired some cool stuff from my grandma's house.

Amongst the teapots and vintage linens was rick rack.

Oooh! Rick rack! Fun stuff, I say.

Only problem is, I am still very new to sewing and am still figuring out ways to successfully incorporate rick rack into my projects.

But who says rick rack is limited to sewing projects?

I think it looks adorable tied around these recipe cards, which will be part of a gift I am giving to some very special newlyweds this weekend. :)

I love rick rack! I think it was used a lot in the 1970s.

Ooh! I love rick rack too! I've never touched it myself, of course, but I just think it's so cute on stuff. (And MUCH better than the lace my mom would like to use far too often on the clothes she sews for Anna occasionally.) My delight with rick rack is followed closely only by my silly giddiness with that pom-pom ball trim (which I had my mom sew onto the edge of Anna's curtains last year...those suckers ain't cheap!!)

Really...I should learn to sew one of these days, if only for the home decor projects. ;o) Love the bow on the recipe cards too, btw. ;o)

See ya in a month!! =)

Oh you clever girl! Those recipe cards are all the more lovely with the rick rack tied around them.

I like rick rack too! It's like controled craziness :)

OMGoodness! Rick Rack Heaven!! There are lots of items with rick rack on flickr if you need inspiration. Including one I just did with a spoon and ladybugs, really.

You are going to have so much fun!

I've been slackerific about reading this blog. I love the idea to use rick rack as gift wrap/tie. It looks super cute.
