Ho ho ho !

Only a week before Christmas!!!I'm proud to present my very own Christmas wreath. I started it last year but didn't finish time but a couple of days ago I finally got around it.I'd love to have a wreath all year round and change it according to the seasons. It took me a whole year to make this one, so my project might take longer than one would expect!I also wanted to share with you the lovely cards my 4 year old girl made for her teachers. Aren't they adorable! I may or may not be a teeny tiny bit biased… Merry Christmas to y'all!!!... [Lire la suite]

Fabric ball/Balle de préhension

Here's Liam's firts Christmas present: a fabric ball I sewed thanks to this tutorial. I made it better by adding a bit of texture to it: ribbon, velvet, lace, linen, flannel, fleece, and even some "noisy" fleece (a piece of plastic bag sewn on the wrong side of the fleece)! I hope my baby will love it! Voici le tout premier cadeau de Noël de Liam : une balle de préhension Montessori en tissu, que j'ai faite en suivant ce tutoriel. Je l'ai améliorée en ajoutant un peu de texture : du ruban, du velours, de la dentelle, du... [Lire la suite]

Gingerbread garland / Guirlande de pain d'épices

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!).

Audrey's hat / Le chapeau d'Audrey

My sister loooves hats. And I love buying her hats ! There's this little hat maker in a town nearby who makes very original ones and I buy one there every year.But this time I wanted to try something new, so I bought a couple of books about hat making, made my sister choose several hats she liked among those, and set myself to make her one. I wanted to give it to her on Saint Audrey's day, on June 23rd (we give each other presents on our saint's day) but that didn't happen due to a little something that took all of my time (I think...

Fleece robe / Robe de chambre en polaire

Raphaëlle loooves when I make her new things. I wanted a quick and easy project, and as the evenings are getting colder and colder, I thought it was time to make her a new robe. At first she didn't get why I was making her a new one : "I already have one, Mummy!", but I pointed out that the sleeves weren't supposed to stop at her elbows! I asked her what colour she wanted and she said PINK without hesitation, then I showed her the various pinks on the website and she went for the pinkest pink ever! (I was rather surprised because she... [Lire la suite]

high chair seat cover / coussin de chaise haute

My little baby is getting bigger and he can't stand staying on the ground in his bouncer while we're eating. He keeps shouting in that really annoying creaking voice he's just discovered he had. I therefore decided redoing the high chair seat was a top priority (for my ears). So I bought some oil cloth (easier to clean), took some quilting batting form my stash, ripped open all the seams of the old seat and used it to trace my pattern pieces, and even managed to reuse some parts (like the plastic bit for the feet and the...

Baby jumper / Pull pour bébé

Long time no see! Doesn't mean I haven't been busy… though not so much sewing and knitting as taking care of the kids, the house, the job! Here's a little something I've knitted before Liam's birth and embroidered recently in the evenings (the baby has finally decided to go to sleep before 11 pm, yay!). I used a basic raglan jumper pattern in a stockinette stitch and added a checkerboard pattern at the bottom and a very boyish embroidery (love the buttons for the wheels!). I got inspired by the lovely lady who has a yarn shop... [Lire la suite]
