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 […]

More Roselette tops, and small sewing projects

Posted: Friday, October 21st, 2011 @ 11:17 am in chezPlum Patterns, Crochet, Sewing, Vercors | 1 Comment »

Life is busy here, and at the end of the day, there’s not much time for crafting… and even less for blogging about it. Yet, I have been crocheting some to double-check the new sizes I am adding to the initial Roselette top pattern. It will now include sizes up to 10 yo.. so I […]

Embroidery samples on my supermatic

Posted: Saturday, October 8th, 2011 @ 7:50 am in Family, Sewing | No Comments »

My grand-mother passed away earlier this year, and my mum and aunts decided to give me her former sewing machine, an elna “supermatic”. It’s probably over 50 years old, but she so took such great care of it that it’s still in great shape. I found on Ebay a set of extra cams, and now […]

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 […]

Old t-shirt becomes new funky nightgown

Posted: Monday, May 16th, 2011 @ 9:57 am in FO, recycle !, Sewing | No Comments »

This t-shirt, in size 3 yo, used to be one of the top favorites in our household. Matryoshkas, and a pretty lime color with a glimpse of red, what’s not to love ?!!! It’s becoming really short for my second daughter though, and I tried to take it out of her drawers. Several times she […]

Orange twirly dress

My brother is getting married soon, on a sunny island. Color of the wedding is orange. I wanted to make dresses for the girls, searched high and low for pretty patterns on Etsy and in my sewing books… and ended up copying one of their favorite dresses.. ;-) The extra bonus: the checkered fabric is […]

Jehanne hooded capelet: progress report

Posted: Sunday, February 13th, 2011 @ 6:10 pm in chezPlum Patterns, Crochet, matryoshka, Sewing | No Comments »

The hood for the long-awaited adult version of the Ermeline is now done, and I reaaaaally like it. Especially when worn loose on your back. (sorry, couldn’t take any decent pics) It’s actually so pretty I thought of getting directly into the cardigan version, except I don’t have enough of that red yarn to change […]

It’s freezing cold these days (yet still no snow at all!) and a little walk with my SIL was a good occasion to snap some pics of my new hat this week-end: My Girouette slouchy hat looked very pretty on her. The pattern is in the final testing phase, then I’ll add it to the […]
