First sewing workshop :-)

Posted: Monday, November 29th, 2010 @ 12:21 pm in french, Sewing, worshop | No Comments »

On saturday we had our first sewing workshop, together with a few friends to “test the waters”: I was surprised to see it actually took us nearly 3 hours to have everyone finish their first pad.

We had a week-end with all the cousins and my grandmother this week-end, and suddenly my grandma realised the loto at her residence is on tuesday. She’s meant to give a few things there, and weeks ago I said I’d make her a Camelia purse. Oops. I started working on this yesterday at around 3 […]

Would you like to sew your own sanitary cloth pads ?

Posted: Sunday, November 7th, 2010 @ 6:30 pm in chezPlum Patterns, Sewing | 5 Comments »

Months and months ago, I realised I needed to stop using disposable sanitary pads, and started to look up at options online to buy some. But, that meant quite a budget. I could sew, and thought why not make them myself ? After months and months of developping my own pattern and testing the resulting […]
