Before I start though, I want to show you the cute Iron Keeper that was also featured in the magazine using my Rise N Shine fabric! Thanks, Stasia, for emailing me and letting me know it was there!
As most of you already know, I am a rickrack fiend! I absolutely love the way that it looks with feedsacks and repro fabrics. Before I found a good source for cotton rickrack I used only vintage cotton because the colors are so much nicer with vintage fabrics.
After collecting quite a few, I noticed that the labels were just wonderful! Many of them are from companies that we would expect like Wrights, Penney's, Talon, Coats and Fruit of the Loom. Oh, you didn't expect Fruit of the Loom???
Notice how they seem to borrow themes from one another? Cameo starts out as a rose, then adds a cameo which is picked up by Lady Fayre. Here's another example from Warren's old and newer label and it's similarity to Boiltex. I have no idea which came first.
Well, that's it for rickrack! Hope you enjoyed looking at some of my collection. Do you have any interesting ones to share? I'll put them on my blog if you do.
Hope everyone is having a great week! Blessings~
