Rick rack is back, baby. Or did it ever go away? This traditional trim dates back as early as the 1800s, when it was better known as “waved braid.” These days, the zig-zag accent is popping up in fashion accessories, house wares, garments and more. Rick rack adds playful pizzazz to our Uptown Tops & Trousers (IJ821), Tic-Tac-Tote (IJ791), Composition Covers (IJ882), Yo-Yo Pincushions (IJ845) and Rick Rack Apron (IJ872). Available in hordes of hues and sizes ranging from itty-bitty to jumbo, a strip of this stuff is sure to jazz up anything from baby blankets and bibs to curtains and skirts. Add flair to a plain pair of hand towels or the edge of a pillowcase. Simply topstitch the trim to a readymade item for instant no-fuss frills.
