Simply Neutrals 36 - French Inspiration Kits and Ideas!

Welcome dear readers to my blog today
where I'm showing you some
French Fabric Inspiration and Embellishing Kits I have assembled
with a couple of ideas on how you can use
some of the contents in the form of
a couple of simple pincushions!


I simply love putting these little kits together from my large stash
of fabrics, laces, buttons and embellishments!

 These particular kits comes in shades of white, creams, black
and shades of grey (I made 3 of these similar kits)


there's a gorgeous French image plus
another card where I have stamped
a sweet image with black and white script!

 There's always a doily included!

some black and white French Toile

cotton lace, netting, some vintage pieces
I'm sharing from my collection

some guipure wedding lace, polka dot cotton,
grey chiffon, printed silk, scripted linen


along with some embroidered cotton
with black scroll stitching by myself

and some pretty flower embellishments,
sari ribbon and mother-of-pearl buttons in different

These two pincushions with linen and laces are

  an example of how I have used the embroidered scrolls!

So you can see the use of these lovely items are
only limited by your imagination
if you want one of these kits to play with then
there are two still available in my Etsy shop
I'm also sharing these images for Simply Neutrals Tuesday 

 So hope to see you there at the party for another week of beauty!
Thank you Wen for hosting us again - you are wonderful!

Love and hugs, Suzy xxx
