Our kids had new bedrooms few months ago.
Nos loulous ont une nouvelle chambre depuis quelques temps. And who says new room also said new decor !
Noland wanted a dinosaurs bedroom (I think he will become a paleontologist, because he knows the name of a lot of them…He’s 4 years old, but it’s easier for him to say « Brachiosorus » than « there is »…). I used dinosaurs fabric (already seen before) to make these pictures.
Eline wanted a princess bedroom (I was sure ! Our kids are stereotypes !) I done some frames, painted with flashy colors to enhance the wallpaper. Then I decorated the bottom with stickers. Then I hooked Christmas figurines !
Here is a makeup bag for Celine, the Nolan’s teacher assistant. It is larger than the last kit as for another use. Coated fabric and fully lined.
With a big front pocket and, of course, her first name !
The back is done with the same principle than Eline’s teacher kit : different fabrics
A second custom suitcase and several inside pockets. The teacher is coquette!
This time, suitcase is a little bit smaller, and has a greater shape.
Problem was the badge : if you use a classical pin, your badge will lean to the sire. I had an idea a long time before but had no opportunity to try it. It’s done now : I replaced the classic button by a Kam press button. It works, and you can change your badge really quickly now !
If you want a tutorial, please email me.
Initially, I had the idea to make her a small suitcase. But one day, after the school, she asked me if it was possible to order a pencil kit (same than Eline). I took this opportunity to make and offer her the object she really wants.
The kit is done with coated fabric, big enough, (25 cm) and doubled. Two small badges remind the fabrics used in plum tones.
In the back, a small patchwork of pretty fabrics.
So, here are some little things I done during the last months : end-of-year presents for our daughter and son’s teachers.
I initially done this little bag as a present, but I the end, I kept it for myself (perhaps the first time in this year I do something for myself 🙂 )
it’s done with a silver fabric, and its inside is done with a red fabric. The nice mirror buttons comes from our brand new haberdashery. Yes ! We have now a haberdashery in our village ! I’m really happy !
Il fallait donc en refaire !
As I promised you some days ago, here is my « miam miam » lunch box. That’s an isothermic bag I use everyday to bring my lunch at work. the fabric is doubled and quilted (like some supermarket cool bags). The next one will be done with a survival blanket, more efficient to keep the good temperature !
This afternoon, Nolan celebrated his birthday with his
girl friends. You saw invit cards, now here is the prize of the treasure hunt : big doudou cushion rabbit, japanese style (home made pattern !) for Nolan and his girl friends
Kids’s name is printed in the back of the rabbit
Kids got the idea to put it around their neck, like flight cushion ! That’s a good idea, but I need to change a little bit the pattern.
And, of course, Eline would like one for herself !
My boy will be 4 in few days, and what better than a home made card to invit his friends for a party !
I found this nice and easy-to-make card on this nice blog
You can pull the dog’s tongue to straighten up his ears !
