I have to say I love Ric Rac & don't use it enough. Click on the Blog name below to link to a great tutorial on how to make a Ric Rac Dahlia to use as a brooch, curtain tie or embellishment. One or two or more would look great on the right bag. Looks nice & easy and there is no limit to what you could use as the centre of the flower. A nice fussy cut piece of fabric on a covered button with ric rac to match would come up a treat.
The tutorial is by Hannah on her blog Knick Knacks and Ric Rac. Check out her web site too for some cute original design screen printed clothing.
