Ravelry prices of my crochet patterns will soon be in €uros

Posted: Saturday, March 31st, 2018 @ 10:06 am in chezPlum Patterns, Crochet, Etsy | No Comments »

I’ve seen it coming for a while, but I waited as long as I could: Because the rate of the $ (USD) keeps going down vs the €uros, because designing and selling crochet patterns, along with translation of knitting and crochet patterns, is my main job and only source of income I have finally decided […]

New crochet pattern: Open Spaces shawl

Posted: Monday, January 29th, 2018 @ 12:14 pm in chezPlum Patterns, Etsy | No Comments »

The Open Spaces shawl is a new shawl design, where you’ll see the same “open spaces” openwork as in my “Open Spaces coat”, plus a bold lace edging derived from a vintage Victorian lace.   You can make this shawl in 2 sizes, using either super bulky yarn (and fewer stitches) or worsted/aran weight yarn […]

More vintage spindles: treasure bounty !

Posted: Thursday, February 14th, 2013 @ 12:37 pm in Antique french spindles, Etsy | No Comments »

Yay ! I haven’t finished my big translation job yet (it’s a great sewing book, am learning tons of tricks !) but the first draft is done, which is always the most difficult and daunting part of the job. So that’s already a relief. So, I took the time after this yesterday to sort out […]

Sewing in the attic

Posted: Wednesday, August 15th, 2012 @ 11:53 am in Etsy, french, Sewing, Vercors | 1 Comment »

Last week-end was a craft fair here in Lans. Never having too much to sell on such occasions (apart from some leftover felted soaps and kits), I decided to sew some skirts… and found a lovely sewing studio in the attic at my parent’s place : being able to leave all the fabric and sewing […]

Several new Altay hats and other little things…

Posted: Tuesday, October 12th, 2010 @ 5:40 pm in chezPlum Patterns, Crochet, Etsy, kids craft | No Comments »

Fall and winter are usually my most productive times of the year, when it comes to new patterns. But these days I just can’t seem to focus on anything, craftwise. Crocheting little things is about all I can manage, so I made several Altay hats. So quick and rewarding, and I can pretty much use […]

More vintage french spindles…

Posted: Saturday, September 25th, 2010 @ 8:47 pm in Etsy, Knitting | No Comments »

Pushed by a customer, I have finally listed more vintage french spindles on Etsy today. Speaking of Etsy. I started a second shop to separate the DIY items (patterns, spindles, fiber…) from the items that are ready to purchase. My new store is called ChezPlum Things. For the moment I have mostly relisted items which […]

Matryoschka love

Posted: Friday, September 10th, 2010 @ 4:07 pm in Etsy, matryoshka, Sewing | 2 Comments »

Nothing like a few matryoshkas to brighten up an otherwise plain bag.. Plume needed a bag for her gym shoes. I also made one for Nell so she’d have a pretty one for her school things just like her big sister… :-) The second one (brown & pink) totally looked like a skirt until the […]
