Hand dyed pastel chenille and ric rac trims

Another busy week adding new pastel chenille and ric rack colors. I thought a soft pink, gold, aqua and purple would be nice for Easter...or any time of the year. This chenille trim is the widest I have and is about 3/8" wide and thicker than the other two sizes I have. I have also dyed it in honey and taupe. I love to add new colors on a regular basis but it is a lot of work and does take some time for the trims to dry.
I will be listing different sets of trims this week, some with eyelet trim and some ric rac and chenille sets.

I hope to be done with the dyeing soon so I can have a chance to "play" with trims on some projects. I love to see the projects you ladies create and I am always browsing your blogs and admiring your work. One can't work all the time!

Speaking of which...I need to go list some trims!


  1. wow Nancy!!!!!!!!!! Those are gorgeous........such springy it!!!
    I am so ready for spring....we had the 'white stuff' here this am...

  2. These are lovely spring colours. I'm trying so hard to resist temptation until I use some of what I already have.

  3. I just received the chenille trims that I ordered from your ebay and I love them. I'm using the thinner width for needlepoint, it makes a great texture and the wider will be used as trim around pincushions. I'm off to order the 3/8" for another project. and maybe some of that lovely rick rack........

  4. Lovely! I want them all! I'm off to try to decide want to order.
