This idea for a textured strip comes from the Victorian era when they used it to fold ribbon. You can of course still do this today.
The textured strip can be used for a wide range of embellishments from a choker, to Home Dec ideas like trimming a lampshade. You can also use it for dress straps or add texture to a bodice or a border of a quilt.
Like all good ideas, it’s simple to make.
