Ric Rac

I about jumped for joy when I read that the March/April Tie One On theme was ric rac.  I love ric rac.  I immediately had a grand plan, and of course, did not stick to it one bit.  I had this vision of chevron stripes done in ric rac - all in one color, varying widths of trim.  Well, that would have taken me forever to line up properly (and straight) and I didn't have that much time seeing that I just welcomed my sewing machine home.  I stayed with stripes and am very happy with how it turned out.



Typically I don't go for orange, but I like the way it looks with the bright yellow and green.  My favorite part is the giant green grosgrain ric rac.  I found it back in the fall and immediately had to have it because it was ric rac and it was green and it was grosgrain.  Did you know I like grosgrain?  Yup, I do.  A lot.

Oh, and for you, Dad:  Hooray, hooray, it's the first of May......

Beautiful! I love the colours and 'stripes' on white. It is fresh. Thanks for the inspir!


That is lovely! I can't wait to see what you do with the "pocket" theme.

I love it! That giant green rickrack is awesome!

I have been digging those colors lately, too. They are going through my head because they will probably be my sister's wedding colors (with a little more orange, a little less green).


AAAAHHHH!! LOOK AT THAT GIANT STUFF!!!!!!!! It's amazing! Your apron is totally awesome (the chevron idea is, too - maybe when there's more time??).


Now I don't own an apron, and normally never wear one. BUT i would totally wear + use that apron. it's beautiful. I love it. {btw, what's tie one on?}


what a great way to welcome your machine back home. i LOVE it! good job erin.


I LOVE THAT APRON!!! Sorry for the all caps, but my love for ric rac is long and passionate. What an absolutely charming combination.


Hmmm, I couldn't tell by your header that you love ric rac! :) Looks great.

How cute is that apron? I can't believe you made that in less then a day. It's so fantastic. Very bright and cheery.


Oh my gosh, that is fabulous! Where on earth did you get that big rick-rack? I've never seen it so big!


This is so festive - the colors you added give it flair. So glad that you're back in the saddle!


That turned out so sweet! I just love the colors you chose!

I was wondering where you purchased the red and white string that is in the photo (your banner picture)? I saw the Martha Stewart now sells some, but was wondering if you knew where to get some bulk. Thanks.


I love it! It really is wonderful and I have that green ric rac, too. I've just been waiting for the right project.

So glad to hear that your sewing machine is back home... what a cute and colorful apron!


Very fun and funky! I've looked for rick rack a few times in the only fabric store that I am able to get to and they never have it. I was starting to think that it really wasn't being made anymore. I will definitely keep my eyes open during my summer travels ...


I'm learning how to add rickrack that has been stitched in the center so it's ruffled onto a skirt for my girls...the middle daughter has an idea and I have to make it work from what she describes to me.


That is so great Erin!


So, so cute. Love it. When I was in junior high, those were the colors of my room. Sweet memories. Yeah for your working sewing machine. :)
