Foxy!

  Il fallait un petit sac pour aller a la creche du ski (un peu en retard sur mes posts moi?!). J'ai adore ce petit imprime renard. Et elle a adore la creche et me reclame regulierement d'y aller depuis....Bientot ma cherie...mais maman n'est pas encore prete a te lacher....! A little rucksack was required to do to the creche when we went skiing (yes I know, i am a little bit late on my posts...). I fell in love with this fox print. She loved the creche by the way and she is now regularly asking me to go....Soon my... [Lire la suite]

New dress

I have been wanting to make this dress for a while but I needed the right fabric. Found it! I love the retro shape, it is from "les intemporels des enfants". It is a bit long according to big sister but this little one is growing so fast that I don't think it will be long before it is the right length. And the best thing about the dress: The pockets!!! Ca fait un bout de temps que je voulais faire cette robe mais il me fallait le bon tissu. Trouve! J'adore la forme retro, le patron vient du livre "les intemporels des enfants". Elle...

Changing...

I have been changing this little coner of my home.... Not much but it feels different enough. I have sewn these 2 new bags inspired by all the lovely 2 tone baskets I see around. It houses gloves, hats and scarves. I have moved 2 prints from further up the stairs and I have added my "new" vase. Simple but eye pleasing.... J'ai change ce petit coin de ma maison... Pas un gros changement mais assez pour faire la difference. J'ai cousu ces 2 sacs inspires des jolis paniers bi-tons que l'on voit partout. Dedans on y met gants, chapeuax... [Lire la suite]

And cut!

Well , it did not take me long to cut in the first fabric of my fresh pile, a Liberty .... Which is suprising because I normally have to stroke a Liberty for months before I have the courage to cut into it (and don't tell me you have never done that...!). But as it is a blend of cotton and wool it had to be cut quickly for the tunique to be worn whilst still cold. It is big as I am hoping it will still fit at the begining of next winter....one can hope... the girl grows sooo fast. As it is a very classic print , I thought that the... [Lire la suite]

Petit bricolage

Take an old tired vase, a funnel and add a little paint..... swirl gently so that the paint is at the chosen height and let dry a few days (in my case 2 week as I got a bit over enthusiastic about the quantity of paint...). Et voila. Prenez un vieux vase fatigue, un entonnoir et un peu de peinture.... faites tourner la peinture doucement dans le vase pour atteindre la hauteur desiree et laissez secher quelques jours (ou dans mon cas quelques semaines car j'avais mis un peu trop de peinture...). Et voila.

Fresh pile

Ohhh the lovely feeling of a fresh new pile of fabrics.... I used to visit my favourite fabric shop about 3 times a year but with looking full time after Lilly the visits have been rare. I manage once a year. So imagine what an event it is for me (!). With Maxime agreeing to play hide and seek in the shop with her (!!), I got a bit of time to myself to browse and make my choice. These fabrics are mainly for some clothes for Lilly (the spring will happen at some point....) and house projects. So with the new fabrics out came the... [Lire la suite]

Messy play

Lilly loooves messy play: paint, sand water....oh yes please. She was wearing an old apron of Juliette which, let say, had seen better days. So we now have a brand new waterproof apron made from a pattern of mine. The same pattern which I have used to make all her bibs because, you might not be surprised but she is also a very messy eater!! Lilly adooore les activites salissantes: peinture, sable, eau.... oh qu'elle aime. Elle portait jusqu'a present un vieux tabier de Juliette qui, disont, avait vu de meilleurs jours. Elle a donc...

Staying warm

I found this fantastic tutorial for a little neck warmer... Way faster than a scarf to knit because frankly I find scarves really boring to knit. J'ai trouve ce tutoriel fantastique pour faire un petit tour de cou.... Beaucoup plus rapide qu'une echarpe a faire parceque franchement, je trouve les echarpes tres ennuyantes a tricoter.
