Beautiful Vintage Trims

When I make tags and collages, I love using fringing, braids, all sorts of trims like that. I have put together some colour co-ordinated packs which are perfect for tags, cards, scrap books, fabric collages, little pillows, and so many other little projects. Some of the trims are vintage French, others are Vintage English.

FRAISES ET FRAMBOISES



Beautiful pinks, a hint of red and white make for such a romantic collection.
1m of white vintage cotton lace
0.5m of vintage red check cotton trim
0.5m of gorgeous vintage strawberry icrecream coloured fringing
0.5m of deep pink vintage braid
0.5m of vintage pink lace

Tied with natural string and finished with a large vintage mother-of-pearl button on a tag left blank so that you can re-use it.

BOTH SOLD, THANK YOU

MERMAID'S ABODE

The colours of the sea, beautiful blues and greens, very similar to the ones I have used on my tags and collages -



The colour of the tassle trim in the last photograph is not quite right, however hard I tried, couldn't the camera to co-operate. The first two pics show the correct colour of the tassel trim.

1m of beautifully soft torn silk ribbon
0.5m of vintage blue fringing
0.5m of vintage green tassel trim
0.5m of vintage ricrac
