Now she has her own sewing machine…

Posted: Thursday, January 15th, 2015 @ 10:21 am in Family, kids craft, Sewing | No Comments »

My older daughter will turn 11 this summer, but she’s turning into a craft addict. Or rather, a sewing addict. Lately she’s been asking more and more to use my sewing machine… leaving tons of bits and pieces in my office (hand-drawn “patterns”, remainings of fleece and fabrics…) to make clothes for her dolls or […]

Pretty leather projects, perfect for Birthdays !

Posted: Monday, July 8th, 2013 @ 12:03 pm in Crochet, Family, kids craft, Leather, Sewing, workshop | 2 Comments »

June is the month of birthdays around here. Birthday parties for both my daughters.. which means parties to organise, and activities to think of. This year I decided to offer mini-workshops for my daughter’s guests. I wanted to make something quick and pretty with leather, using not too much material and easy to make for […]

A castle for the princess

Posted: Wednesday, November 30th, 2011 @ 4:51 pm in Family, kids craft, Sewing | 1 Comment »

This morning, the girls were trying to find an occupation, and decided they wanted to “sew a princess”. I said fine, start with making your pattern/template then (which let me enough time to finish breakfast). The princess first had no feet, and then had 4. A family of bugs it would be then :-) A […]

My 5-year old made a mermaid costume for her Barbie doll – free sewing pattern

So my younger daughter – she just turned 5 this summer – really wanted a mermaid Barbie doll. Why buy it when we can make it ? I found this beautiful shiny silver fabric in an op shop lately, perfect for a mermaid !! She also wanted to work on a crafting project, and do […]

Baby babouches, and some sewing with the girls

Posted: Saturday, October 23rd, 2010 @ 9:02 am in Crochet, Family, kids craft, Sewing | 1 Comment »

On thursday, while hiking with my husband, I had a sudden inspiration: Baby Babouches !! They were so easy to make, just downsizing my pattern. Now I only need to work out the sizing. :-) Both girls were invited to birthdays last week, so we had a crafty morning together. The little one sewed a […]

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 […]

This morning’s crafting with the girls

Posted: Saturday, September 18th, 2010 @ 12:25 pm in Family, kids craft, Sewing | No Comments »

Plume is going to a birthday this afternoon. We decided we would sew her friend a little book cover with felt. Then the little sister wanted to sew as well, and it was a good occasion. I made her sew a wing on a little felt bird (her first ever sewing !) and she managed […]

Home-sitting, and a new pink cardi

Posted: Friday, July 10th, 2009 @ 7:08 pm in Family, handsewn, kids craft, Knitting | 1 Comment »

This week we’ve been away, house-sitting a beautiful place in Vercors (where we’re dreaming of moving to within a couple years) and taking care of the cats. As you can see, it’s not too shaby.. ;-) Great for the girls who can play outside all day, and great for the parents who can relax without […]

Upcycling art

Posted: Friday, July 3rd, 2009 @ 8:18 pm in Family, kids craft, recycle ! | 1 Comment »

(see that super cool crochet tote in the background..? ;-) Last week was Prune’s “fàȘte de l’à©cole”, kind of an open day to celebrate the end of the school year and show what the kids did. All the classes worked on recycling this year, visiting an expo of artwork made with recycled material, learning about […]

Last minute Birthday gift: a Headband

Posted: Friday, February 20th, 2009 @ 7:49 pm in Crochet, Family, Felting, kids craft, links | 2 Comments »

Prune went a birthday earlier today. That of course meant bringing a present for the little girl. But I don’t like buying yet more plastic and/or brand toys or dolls … So I just got a little HelloKitty booklet of cards and stickers, and figured we’d make something cute by ourselves. We started making a […]
