Let’s just start by saying we have a pretty fierce love affair with ric rac here in the shop. Our friend, and long time customer, Sarah, recently stopped by the shop to purchase some goodies, ask a few questions and share some of her latest (darling) projects. Upon checking out, she plopped her purse onto the counter and Sharon’s eyes lit up, “I love your purse!!”. Sarah explained that her grandmother had made it, and that each of her sisters had one similar. Behold: flowers, stems, leaves and bows made entirely out of ric rac!
This darling flower bouquet makes us want to dump out Sharon’s very large tub of our favorite vintage trim and start embellishing jean pockets, purses, backpacks and little girl’s dress…to name a few. A quick search for ‘ric rac’ on Pinterest presents even more adorable ideas! We’re so inspired by this precious purse, that we think we’ll include a nifty little ric rac coupon in August’s Triple T Telegraph.

Do you have an heirloom piece that has darling ric rac incorporated? We’d love to see it. Share it on our Facebook page so we can squeal with delight!
