Rick rack has been at the top of the trim list for nearly 200 years. From elegant lace gowns to prairie pinafores, it’s a trim that’s weathered the test of time, and we have the best tips for adding it to today’s projects.
An apron in flannel makes for some cozy cookin’! The ties adjust with grommets and knots to fit a variety of sizes. And rick rack around the bib and along the waistband is the perfect finishing touch. We made ours with pre-cuts.
Apply some old-fashioned goodness in a new way, creating a set of pillow covers wrapped in the Southern charm of classic candy-colored seersucker. We added ruffles, rick rack trim, and a button placket back closure.
Scrumptious sherbet colors give this flouncy little apron just the right blast of spring sass. There are two layers, both fully lined, with a wide waistband and generous ties. And check out that jaunty diagonal pocket!
When it comes to instant gratification, it’s hard to beat the pillowcase. A crisp, new pillowcase immediately brightens up your bed linens. It’s quick and fun to make them for all kinds of special occasions. These are reversible!
Yay for the cloth napkin! Our floating rick rack technique lets you fancy-up a standard cloth napkin as a gift or just for everyday. It’s fun and easy, and you may already have everything you need on hand to whip up a stack in no time.
Bigger than a coaster but smaller than a placemat – a mug rug is just the right size at your desk, in the sewing room, or on a small end table in the living room or den. Our design adds a unique little pocket with its own napkin.
It may be a half apron, but it’s full of pretty details. For yourself or as a delightfully easy gift, this adorable apron mixes a lightweight solid cotton with a bold quilting print. We added slash pockets and cute rick rack accents.
You can never have too many places to keep your stuff. Use this nested trio for sewing bits and bobs, as a desk caddy, or organize items in the bathroom, kitchen or nursery. The largest basket features looped handles.
Add a little sparkle with metallic cottons. This is a fast and fun project that would be great for someone new to sewing. The waistband and ties are surprisingly easy to make, but give the apron a very professional look.
