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 […]

Sewing for me and her…

Posted: Tuesday, November 18th, 2014 @ 1:19 pm in Family, Sewing | No Comments »

Last week-end was all about rain and crappy weather. To try and keep the girls happy, I suggested we do some sewing together… My older daughter kept herself busy making a cardboard doll house for her sister’s Barbies, and sewing barbie clothes on her own (10 year old and she can now nearly handle the […]

Xmas presents : sewing, customizing and felting

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 […]

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 […]

The most amazing crafting-holidays ever

Posted: Friday, November 9th, 2012 @ 6:02 pm in Family, Felting, Leather, Sewing | No Comments »

We had the best time this week: Four days in a chalet, with tons of craft supplies, and awesome girl-friends. There was felted soaps, leather bags and pouches, polymer clay, clothes customized and buttons felted… Sophie made a pretty pouch for her cell phone, and my older daughter drew the template for this awesome coin […]

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 […]

Sewing pretty skirts for my nieces

Posted: Tuesday, May 29th, 2012 @ 3:57 pm in chezPlum Patterns, Family, matryoshka, Sewing | No Comments »

Have you entered my contest to win the sewing book I translated yet ?!!! My nieces from Reunion island came for a visit, and their mum said she “really liked my daughter’s skirts“. She’s also the one I made that bag for, which she really seems to love (and apparently got tons of compliments on), […]

“Ma petite robe noire”, the sewing book I translated: Win a copy!

Posted: Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012 @ 4:02 pm in book review, Freebie, french, review, Sewing, translation | 5 Comments »

Last summer I was busy translating my first book ever (I’ll admit it was a bit scary… but so exciting!), the famous “The little black dress” by Simon Henry. And now the french version I worked on is finally released: I received 2 copies from the editor this morning and am glad to offer one […]

Tutorial: Lining crocheted potholders with old jeans

Posted: Sunday, March 4th, 2012 @ 10:08 am in Crochet, Freebie, recycle !, Sewing, Tutorial | 1 Comment »

I love crocheting potholders. They’re great instant gratification projects, and are perfect to use up small remnants of cotton yarns in all colors of the rainbow, making great gifts on top of all.   But. Sometimes I’m not patient enough to crochet twice the same pattern and make them double-thick, resulting in potential burned fingers.. […]

Farewell 2011, Hello 2012 !

Posted: Friday, January 6th, 2012 @ 1:30 pm in Crochet, Leather, Sewing | No Comments »

Of course I have tons of “urgent” things on my list, but I couldn’t resist making a mosaic reminding me all the cool things 2011 brought… Posts are becoming scarce on this blog. Yet I’ve been crafting quite a lot lately… but some things I couldn’t show before all the gifting was done ! I […]
