Wild Thing Crocheted Ric Rac

When I read that Wild Thing needed 6 yards of ric rac, I knew exactly what I wanted to use.
I began crocheting my own ric rac.
The teal blue crochet thread matches perfectly with the It's a Hoot fabric line.

If you are interested in making your own ric rac, I did a post on 10/26/10 that provides links to Fox's Lane free tutorial.
Easy peasy to do, and worked up rather fast. (trust me)

I used a (100% cotton) size 10 crochet thread, and a size C (2.5 mm) crochet hook.
One cone made 6 1/2 yards of ric rac.
Just the perfect amount needed for the quilt.

The ric rac is now wrapped neatly back on the cone, waiting to be sewn into Wild Thing.
I'll keep you posted.

Very clever and sure a whole bunch less expensive than buying it!
