gathered ric rac tutorial

We can not keep the gathered ric rac in stock.  They only problem is we sell it in onse size one.  the TINY size.  Here it is in JUMBO

--Make ric rac like in the tutorial 2 weeks ago with the ruler

-- the side that you cut down the middle, sew your gathering stitch.  For the 1 inch I used one stitch but for the larger sizes I would suggest 2 rows of stitching.

--pull and gather as desired. Tie off so gathers wont come undone.

Love this! I use it in one my patterns, "Flowers Poppin Between My Toes" and I can never find the color I want. I'll have to stop in and get some rick rac and sew my own!
