knitted baby sack / nid d'ange en laine

Hey my wonderfully amazing readers!(Yes, I have a favour to ask…) Yes, I am going to bore you with yet another baby knit! But this time, I have a good reason for it.I've knitted this baby sack for my future baby in bright and happy colours. I'm particularly pleased with the colour combination and the ireegular stripes, but as you can see, I left a fairly big white stripe in the upper-middle part and I don't know what to do with it. Here's where YOU come in handy, because (hopefully) you're going to help me decide. Originally, I... [Lire la suite]

Fabric photo album tutorial / Album photo en tissu, le tuto

I'm so happy to finally share this project with you! Mainly because this means that it's finished and sent to its rightful owner… You see, between the Christmas holidays, the crazy Christmas handmade giftmaking race and my pregnancy, I've fallen totally behind on some projects that I really care about. This fabric photo album was meant for my friend Annabelle's son's 1st birthday, which was… on December 22nd, and I only managed to finish it last week! Shame on me! Fortunately, it's not likely little Leo will hold it against me, thank... [Lire la suite]

Baby clothes / Vêtements de bébé

Every time it's the same, when I'm pregnant I develop a sort of knitting fever!So after the socks I made for my daughter, the sweaters for my sister, and other things I will blog about shortly, I realized I was in the 6th month of my pregnancy which meant I could maybe start working on a baby kit. Here's the first thing I've made : (so very) small summer dungarees and socks to match.When I bought the yarn, I actually thought it was pearl grey. As it turns out, it's pale blue, which isnt' really unisex, and I don't know the sex of... [Lire la suite]

Socks! / Des chaussettes !

Just before Christmas, my good friend Elke gave my daughter a pair of bright red socks handknitted by her grandmother. Raphaelle LOVED them. So much so that she didn't want to take them off, literally! So I decided it was high time I learned how to knit socks. I knitted a pair for me last year but I was  following a pattern and didn't really understand the principle of it all. So first I found a good tutorial (and here I can't thank enough the wonderful owners of the shop where I buy all my notions, because they gave me the... [Lire la suite]

Jelly roll skirt / La jupe en bandes de tissu

Last summer I was on holidays with my sister and in a beach shop she fell in love with a skirt that was made entirely of strips of fabric. She didn't buy it though. First, it was quite expensive. Second, although it existed in two different lengths, none pleased my hard-to-please sis: the long one was too long and the short one was… yes, too short! So she placed an order with me for such a skirt, in the right length and in bright colors, more or less in blue. Challenge accepted, I would make it for her birthday, which was in... [Lire la suite]

Happy New Sewing Year! / Bonne année de couture !

I'm definitely not going to list all the resolutions I should make, it's not my style. I prefer going through life not knowing what I'm going to do exactly, which doesn't prevent me from doing A LOT of stuff! My one and only goal for 2015 is to have a beautiful baby, and hopefuly, I'll be able to scratch that from my list by the beginning of May! Now let's get down to business, because I have quite a few items I've been dying to share with you but couldn't because they were Christmas or birthday presents and I wanted to keep them a...

Christmas market / Marché de Noël

So next Saturday there is a Christmas market in Lavelanet, a small town nearby where my husband works as an English teacher (yep, I'll tell you EVERYTHING!). One of his colleague (who also happens to be a friend) will keep a stand there to help raise money to organize a trip to Ireland for her pupils and she asked if I had stuff for sale. Well, I had nothing at the time, which was to weeks ago, except for a leather purse I've made ages ago (you can see it here, sorry, my blog was only in French at the time). And it wasn't under the...

Sunny sweater / Un pull coloré

Here's the new sweater I've knitted for my daughter. It's the same wool as the peruvian hat's in my previous post. I chose a very simple pattern in one of my extremely numerous pattern books and added a pocket just for the fun of it. It was an easy quick knit, which offered me some rest, and I love the result, it's warm and colorful, plus I can find my daughter in a croud thanks to that yellow!   Voici le dernier pull que j'ai tricoté pour ma fille. C'est la même laine que pour le bonnet péruvien de mon message précédent... [Lire la suite]
