rick rack on etsy

I don't know why I never thought to look for rick rack on Etsy before. I use the large size to trim my tea towels and I'm always looking for the 100% cotton kind in fun, bright colors. I bought a bunch last week from three different sellers.

When you search for rick rack you get all sorts of interesting listings besides packages and off-the-bolt yardage. Here are some cool things I found while looking (clicking on the photos will take you to the etsy listing).


vintage yellow crocheted pillowcase edging with rick rack woven through the top, $4 (backthroughtime)


A vintage blue tablecloth trimmed with a triple row of white rick rack attached with black and white embroidery floss, $12 (IndulgeYourShelf)


A 1950s rockabilly jade green circle skirt trimmed with rows and rows of colorful rick rack and braided trims, $28 (VintageJubilee)


Yellow cotton tatting with beige rickrack attached to the bottom edge, $5.50 (SalvageNation)


And finally, an amazing pair of clip-back earrings fashioned from pink rick rack and beads (jackandjoey). Don’t go looking for these—they're already sold—to me!

Thanks so much for showing my items. I think it is such a unique trim. I always get lost wandering through the other items I see when searching on etsy. It makes it so much fun.
