Doll made with baby’s clothe


grosse poupée
Handmade/Heartmade by my mom.
She took rompers (that she had knit for my son).

My daughter was enthralled by this doll as tall as her.
For a long time « big doll » took away nightmare from my daughter (as she took its « hand » she thought she was not alone in her bed).

Thank mom, she is wonderfull and avoided us a lot of night-awakenings.

Beach wind screen/sunscreen for beach umbrella


tente2
Never say it too much : sun is dangerous for kids.

Parachute fabric (or nylon), tulle and little snap hooks.
Some funny forms (fish, star and boat) and portholes in wich I cut the nylon to let the wind going through.

The snap hooks are to fasten the screen to the umbrella’s ribs.
Some sand onto the bottom of the screen to fix it.

Due to nylon, once folded the screen weighs nothing and doesn’t take up space.

Multi pockets beach bag / changing mat


Sac plage
A bag very useful to take children to the beach and which is still useful when they (too much) grew.
The inside is a round bag.
The outside has many pockets and (with clever zippers) can get loose in order to make a changing mat.
