Second Ric-Rack flower tutorial

1. I take a piece of Ric-Rack ribbon and pull strong tread throw the ribbon. I am pull the thread twice in each corner
first - from back side to right side of each corner
second - from right to back side.
2. After this I pull the thread tightly as I can, roll up Ric-Rack in circle ,hide an edges under the flower and sew flower onto fabric.
3. I put a bead in the center . I stitch all leafs to the fabric. It fixed the shape of flower very well. After this I am add a few green leafs.

Happy stitching.

Another beautiful sharing. Thanks so much. Have you tried these with different sizes of rick-rack? Are there some that work better than others?

Did you get my question about the green cameo?

These rick rack flowers are bringing back wonderful memories of the 1970's. I used to make them to dress up purses and hair bands. Wonderful!

Ira, I will check on a different way to measure the beads I am using when I go to a bead sale this week-end. Those people will know, and I will pass on the information then... ;-)

I'm loving looking at your blog! This ric-rac flower is amazing. I use the Sundance beads on my needlepoint designs - #14 (Japanese seed beads) but I have no idea how those things are measured. The range of colors and finishes in incredible - they also come larger. I put them onto things of Allison's that I "copy" into needlepoint crazy quilts.
