Altered threads: rickrack or ruche it

This is a fun technique for altering Kreinik 1/16" and 1/8" Ribbons. You can basically make your own rickrack, creating a flat thread that zigzags. Ruching is a technique where you gather fabric or ribbons to form ruffles; it's basically rick-rack pulled all the way together. Both can be tacked, or couched, to your needlework for some gorgeous special effects. How-to: tap the end of the thread to separate the strands, then gently pull one fiber out, slowly, causing the rest of the ribbon to fold in on itself. Work the zigzags or "pleats" down the length of your fiber as you keep pulling the one strand. Pull all the pleats together tightly to ruche it; this makes a nice bow on a stitched package, or a flower center, etc.
