Artist bag / Sac d'artiste

My niece is turning 8 this summer and she likes drawing, colouring, etc. so I thought it would be great to make her a bag to carry paper and pencils/felt tips everywhere, which can come in handy during the holidays.Ages ago, I found this great tutorial on Pinterest and pinned it because I was sure it would come in handy. (Sorry guys, it's in French, just ask if there is something you want translated.) Actually I wanted to make it last Christams but got a bit overwhelmed by all my Christmas sewing and knitting! Well… better late than... [Lire la suite]

Quick baby bibs / Bavoirs express

It's been a while! Yep, I've been pretty busy this last couple of months, what with having a baby and all that! The baby is a boy and I can't believe he's already 2 months old and already beginning to sleep through the night! Well done champ! Before he was even born, I couldn't resist making a few bibs for him with a pattern I found on Pinterest called the 30 minute bib. Be careful if you want to make one though. I had to enlarge the part that goes around the baby's head because when I used the pattern as it is, it took me... [Lire la suite]

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

I couldn't resist! I got inspired by the fabrics on the baby quilt and just had to make a fox softie for this baby!As I couldn't find a free pattern that suited me, I invented one. And because I'm a very nice person, I give it to you, no strings attached, except that I'd love to see your creations, so please send me a picture!). It's HERE! Je n'ai pas pu résister !Les motifs des tissus de la couverture de naissance m'ont inspirée et après, j'étais foutue : obligée de faire un doudou renard pour ce bébé !Comme je n'ai pas réussi à...

Baby triangle quilt / Couverture bébé en patchwork

Tadaaaaa ! My baby kit is officially done! I finished this baby quilt yesterday and I'm so happy with it for so many reasons!First of all, I managed to finish it BEFORE the baby was born, which was my main concern.Then, I love the color combination and those lovely fabrics from the Riley Blake "natured" collection. 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. ...

The crib is ready! / Le berceau est prêt !

I just wanted to show you the wonderfully beautiful crib that has been used in my family for all the babies born in the last 30 years. As I'm 31, I didn't get to sleep in it, but I'm sure it's very comfy too!You see all that immaculate white embroidered fabric? The only problem with this crib is that you have to sew all this on the structure and unsew it every time you want to clean it. And it takes A. LONG. TIME.But the result is gorgeous, so it's all worth it, isn't it? Je voulais juste vous montrer le sublimissime berceau qui a... [Lire la suite]
