I could just eat this little guy! Je pourrais le croquer, ce petit bonhomme ! And those, aren't they cute??? I used the pattern provided by Cutesy Crafts. Et ceux-là, ne sont-ils pas mignons ??? J'ai utilisé le patron de Cutesy Crafts.

Guys, it's official, I'm a PTA Mom! With other parents, we've just created the village school's Parents' association and the first event we organise is a Christmas market that will take place on December 6th (so soon!). Of course I couldn't resist sewing things for the association to sell. Here's a first batch: sugary owls. Avec d'autres parents, nous avons créé l'association de parents d'élèves de l'école de notre village et on l'a appelée l'École Buissonnière. La première manifestation qu'on organise pour avoir des sousous... [Lire la suite]

Here's a page I'm really proud of because I invented it! On the left, there's a satchel (for which you have the tutorial and templates here) that contains letters that spell out my little girl's name, mum and dad (well… in French of course!). Each word has its own color so that it is a bit easier and each letter has a "scratchy" velcro bit at the back. The right page has 3 strips of "soft" velcro to stick the letters on. I like everything about this page: it turned out exactly as planned, and the colors are really "happy"! And my... [Lire la suite]

This page is really easy to make. I just cut 1 inch strips of felt and sewed them on the top and on the left side of the page.There may be a lot of strips for her young age (she's 3) but she'll manage it later. And maybe, just maybe, as she will have trouble doing it, she'll be quiet for a longer moment? One can only hope… Cette page est vraiment très facile à réaliser. J'ai juste coupé des bandes de feutrine de 2 cm et je les ai cousues en haut et sur le côté gauche de la page.Il y a peut-être un peu beaucoup de bandes pour... [Lire la suite]

Here's a page I copied from the blog Serving Pink Lemonade, who nicely provides free templates. I only altered the flower pot (in which you can put the petals!) and embroidered the numbers instead of cutting them in felt (that was easier for me).I traced the outline of the petals with a fabric permanent marker (if I had had time I would have prefered embroidering it for a better look).I used sticky velcro at the back of the petals. As it is, the petals stay in place on the felt fower with only the "scratchy" velcro part at the back,... [Lire la suite]

I've been toying with the quiet book idea for some time. It all started aboute a year ago on Pinterest (what doesn't?), I was looking for felt toys patterns and providentially fell in quiet book wonderland! As soon as I discovered its existence, I knew I would make one for my daughter. A few weeks ago, I explained the concept to my husband, who immediately started nagging me every couple of days to actually make one before we leave on holidays in the middle of July. He instantly felt the quiet book great power to occupy our daughter... [Lire la suite]
