I collect rick rack. It makes me smile. It comes in all different sizes and colors and is easy to sew or glue onto anything - it even goes around in circles with ease. Traditionally it is used as an edging, but the best thing that I ever did with it was decorate this acrylic cardigan. I used two colors of the same size and sewed it on in a swirling meandering pattern all over the front and back of the sweater. It reminds me of those diagrams for ballroom dancing, but without the footprints. Whenever I wear it, people comment on it. I take that opportunity to ask them if they know what it is. The over 40 crowd usually does, but the younger crowd needs to be educated. I consider it my cause to enlighten them on its delightful moniker. Rick rack. Its also a good name for a cat!
This is my collection of rick rack that I glued onto a table runner and a pillar candle.
