I need some help.....I'm working on a petite french clown painting....suzi blu style....I'm looking for TINY black rik rak and pom poms. I found dollhouse ribbon and trim sites that sell em but they have a 25 dollar minimum, I'm not looking to spend that kind of money just to get what I need. Thought I ask here first.

I only need like 3 inches of the black rik rak and 6 pom poms. I would so appreciate it and let me know what you like in return- atc, blanks, sleeves, cutesy decoupage sheets, something.....

Otherwise I may have to dye some rik rak and pom poms black...well at least try. THANKS for looking!!!

I have teeny ric rac in baby blue, pink & vintage white (i.e. was white but has been wrapped on acidic cardboard for a decade or so).

Feel free to ask me directly for fabric & notions, my stash is Epic ;)

Are you still looking for these?

If you have the tiny ribbon and need it black, have you thought to paint it? It is probably going to get covered in medium and glazes anyway, right? I would use a permanent ink on both sides, let it dry, then apply with medium as usual. In my house, desperate times call for desperate measures!
