Ric-Rack fish tutorial

I want to share with you today this Ric-Rack fish tutorial.

1. I am take a small piece of white Ric-Rack ribbon and paint him with regular fabric paint.
I choose blue and yellow for contrast.

2. After paint was dry a fixed it with hot iron.

3. I fold ribbon on white (unpainted) side and and do a few small stitches according to red line. ( I did them with red thread only for contrast picture).

4. I opened Ric-Rack ribbon on color side. Pressed it and stitched a small eye.

5. I sewed it on the fabric with small like a fin stitches.

6. You can do an eye with a bead or do any other stitches for fin. You can stitch other tail.

Other Ric-Rack fish.

Happy stitches

You have to add "Fabric painting medium" (DecoArt) to your acrylic paint to fix it on fabric.
