While I don't remember candy or anything for that matter being a penny (except a 1 cent stamp) the colors of this cording really remind me of vintage candy with the stripes and colors and flavors.
So cool! Are the jewelry and rug making ideas running through your head yet?
I had an idea to develop a recycled silk that was cord-like but still soft and tadah! This cording has a 1/4" width. It comes in 200g hanks and has about 19 yards.
