Evening dress !

For a cousin’s wedding in early July, I made the outfits for children following the dress code without really knowing it!

For Nolan, I made a vest out from the Burda 2012 series, gray and white cotton linen with thin black stripes tennis.

For the vest: two false pockets in the colors of the liner and false placket in the back.

The pants has been made from the last Ottobre magazine. I added false pockets behind.

For Eline, a princess dress was required and in order to give it even greater significance, I added a tulle petticoat home-made model. The dress is made of white taffeta embroidered and adorned with silver sequins. The bust is lined with white cotton.

The dress is essentially from a Ottobre’s pattern, with as always some changes, like the length. The Day, the little girl wore a pink satin sash with a big knot. She was almost as beautiful as the bride.

Now up to the photos.

Dots and stars !

A new one for the bag serie. Done for my sister with darker color and without any name. I was not sure she is happy to have her name on the bag, so I replaced it by stars.

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.

Sweet memory of a little girl

Our « old » daughter (6 years old) has also been a « little » daughter. I’m showing you my first creations done with my super Pfaff sewing machine (a nice birthday present, 6 years old also !)

For these clothes, I used a pants pattern from the book « intemporels pour bébés », reduced in every ways, as it was really too big ! The final pattern had nothing to see with the initial one. I also added some draws on its sides, as a reminder of those above.

The top comes from the same book : I changed the front to add a « plastron » and false buttons. It can be closed in the back with snap fasteners.

Les tissus sont des cotons dont celui à petites étoiles utilisé dernièrement pour le survêtement de la demoiselle.

Miam miam…

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 !

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 !

A little schoolbag

Our daughter used her little schoolbag for 3 years (when she was 3 to 6), and despite all this time, it is not too « tired » 🙂cartable eline

dos cartableAt home we love this coated fabric, especially our daughter because she was also chosen it for her bag for pool, and also for my miam miam box I will show you soon !
