Fusible ric-rac

I had a few people ask how I did the fusible ric-rac.
Here's what I did


First I laid the ric-rac on a strip of muslin


Then I laid a strip of heat and bond on top of the ric-rac - paper side up of course.


ironed it next


Then the tedious part of cutting it out.


Peeled the layers apart and now I can put little bits of ric-rac everywhere!
All my gingerbread men are iced in no time!

Great idea but oh the cutting certainly would be tedious! I love gingerbread men.

Hia Lynn, what a great idea. Maybe one day fusible ricrac will be made like fusible bias strip is now.

Cute gingerbread man.
