French Script Fabric

Yes, it's everywhere.
And it's been around for quite a while now.
But I'm still loving it.

Pillows are probably one of the most predominate uses for it.

Even the humble burlap with some French words stamped upon it
is elevated to a higher level.


On a recent fabric buying trip I finally acquired some for myself.
This is from Waverly, called "Pen Pal."
It's a fairly large scale print on a mottled beige background.
There's even a touch of gold metallic for some glam,
(as if anything French needed more glam).
Yardage for sale is available at my etsy shop.

I will be using it for needle cases,



in a variety of styles.
Here's one for double point needles.

This is a hanging organizer for circular needles.



I'll also be lining an occasional bag with it.

Do you like French Script fabric?
Have you found any unique uses for it?

Bon Jour!

I have one of those long roll pillows and it makes me mad that the antique mall booth person made it sound like it was a real old grain sack bag turned into that pillow and I have later seen that they are mass produced.

I haven't quite gotten into the French thing yet. I'm amazed at how many people love it and how popular it is. Not that I don't find it beautiful, but am trying to figure how to fit it in with my country/shabby/farmstyle look that I love so well. :)
