Summer-Spring collection / Collection printemps-été

I realised a couple of weeks back that my daughter had nothing to wear for a warmer weather. Her old Spring-Summer gear is either too small or can't be cleaned to a satisfactory level, so okay to play in the garden, but a big no no for school. Usually she wears her cousin's hands-me-down, but everything summery was in 5T and Raphaelle is still 3/4T, poor little thing! I took this opportunity to try my brand new Juki serger! It's a pleasure not to have to zigzag around every single fabric piece, and it's waaaaaay easier to sew knit... [Lire la suite]

Fox softie / Doudou renard

The result is happy and fresh and perfect for a girl or a boy, and will match the yellow of the bedroom wall.Finally, I used a super cute and very soft fabric for the backing that makes this blanket especially...

Easter garland / Guirlande de Pâques

I'm pretty sure you already know but this weekend was one of the two chocolate feasts of the year: Easter of course!And just like last year, I couldn't resist making a little something to decorate the garden (I must have something for garlands!). This year, I used my brand new knowledge in crochet, acquired in a series of classes in my local yarn shop (more about that later).I crocheted 10 flowers, knitted 3 leaves, assembled them, and then I put my daughter to work: she painted a few bunnies and eggs to put in between the flowers. ...
