Happy new year, and best wishes to you !! I hope you’ll have a healthy and creative year !! This year I made the presents for my daughters. Can’t say I was very organised though. Because of the Xmas markets and all the preparations ahead, it only occured to me 2 days prior to the […]

News, knitting and Xmas markets

My new leather, sheepskin and felted wool handbag

Posted: Monday, November 12th, 2012 @ 2:11 pm in Felting, Leather | No Comments »

I’m in LOVE with my new handbag ! It’s so perfectly perfect, and so ME ! I might add a pocket inside, and maybe a button to close it, but I’m still waiting to see whether it really needs it. About a year ago, I went to a craft show in Grenoble (Artisa) and met […]

Nuno felting: first experiment

Posted: Wednesday, February 2nd, 2011 @ 7:45 pm in chezPlum Patterns, Crochet, Felting | No Comments »

I recently bought several books on felting, and decided it was time to experiment with this dyed-and-accidentally-felted wool batt I’ve kept for years( Dying a merino batt with the microwave method doesn’t work… unless your purpose is to make pretty felt ! :-) Anyways, so I got a piece of pretty orange sheer fabric. Set […]
