frosting with French knots...

i am thinking about  a project 
involving French knots...

so i popped on to Pinterest for
some inspiration.

i thought that i would share some of  my 
favorite images...

a French knot tutorial

i love this idea...
... embroidering the knots in the same shades as the background.

French knots and sugar?  i'm IN!

they make the most beautiful mini ~ hydrangeas and...

... add textural magic when
 embroidered onto the center of the flowers of this 
amazing skirt at Anthropologie!  

{i love this whole idea of adding same color texture to
a floral background...babies LOVE texture...hmmm...
something for Holland Grace...}

i'm inspired. i hope that i have inspired you as well!



  1. I love French knots! It's the texture for me too!
    And yes...I feel inspired!
    Have a wonderful day!

  2. Oh my goodness you certainly have inspired the pants off me!
    well, not literally...but you know what I'm saying.....I'm saying I want to stop blog hopping and pick up some gorgeous thread and get knotting a la French already!

    thanks so much for sharing!

    ciao bella
