Ric Rac Revolution

Get your craft on, it is time to get creative with ric rac! Below are some juicy finds on what to create with this curvy deliciousness! Ric Rac has been around for a while with a peak in 1970's associated with the hit tv show Little House on the Prairie and now it is back in a HUGE way!

Liven up your BLAH sweater with some self cover buttons or become Ric Rac Queen if you dare!

Check out a super cute skirt & baby idea & pattern from Make it Love It

I am falling more and more in love with JUMBO!

Grab some of our gorgeous flannel and make a pretty and very simple blanket & bib set using this fabulous free tutorial from Sew Much Ado

And why not whip up a quick crayon roll for the older sibling?  SkiptomyLou

Oooh and check out this beauty made with Patty Young's fabric - wouldn't look fabulous in her new range too? Available here . A great way to hide those seams! And have fun co-ordinating some fabrics for your perfect combo!

Add a new touch to your quilts like Leanne did from Everyday Celebrations. She also blogs over at Moda Bake Shop - another favourite blog!

Finally my favourite (I had to save the best for last!) I would ♥ a Christmas tree filled with these!

This is a free tutorial by Retro Mama, check out the fantastic detail on the doors and windows! If you are anything like me, I simply cannot throw away a tiny scrap of fabric that has a wee bird left on it and now I know why!

Just think if you start making these now they would make the perfect presents for teachers, friends or just to decorate your own tree with!

I hope that this collection of ric rac tutorials has revolutionised the way you embellish!
