Yesterday, a post about rick rack roses popped up on my blog reader (although I can't find it now to include a link). Pssh, I thought, that's old news! How old? Well, Simplicity 6430 dates back to 1966. So it's true what they say: Everything old is new again!
All of these examples were with the pattern when I bought it, so I can't take credit for those amazing color combinations! The roses look a little more like rose buds after being stuffed in an envelope for who knows how long, but I love the delicacy of the little blue star flowers.
If anyone is interested, I can post more about the instructions for making these flowers. There seem to be lots of tutorials for the roses, but I don't see the daisies or the others anywhere. Now I'm glad I've held onto all that rick rack over the years!
