Child girly apron



Time goes fast… my niece’s daughter is old enough to help with cooking.
“Maëlys needs an apron, please”.

Tip to match 2 fabrics: wash them together if one rubs off (the decorated fabric was white) => an error which becomes a success like the tarte Tatin :-o

Magic card for painters



I don’t like to offer just a gift card, I like to create a personalized holder.

My niece, young mother, went back to painting and the gift card is intended for artistic supplies. The theme is found and this card is… magic!

Creating is dreaming with hands sticker


Creating is dreaming with hands sticker
I love my Alex IKEA drawer unit. In addition to storing my materials, I have an ideal surface to put stickers and replace them easily! (enlarged view HERE).

The tutorial of the amineko cat is HERE.

As usual, I send the Silhouette Studio file on request.

2020 souvenirs envelope book



Fifth year that I offer this souvenir envelope book.
The official (!!) Disney princesses list has only got 11 names, it’s because they forgot my friend Marie, a great Disney movies fan ;-)
(Elsa, Anna and Moana are not official princesses)

See the other years: 2019 – 201820172015 (with tuto)

Easily fix a trouser back gap


fix-trouser-back-gap-01
In a few decades we have grown larger and, unfortunately, bigger, so manufacturers have changed the standard sizes of clothing.
A criterion has not yet been taken into account: women have an arched back!! Result, often pants have a back gap.

No need to be a great seamstress, it’s an easy fixing.

You need: 2 flat and thick buttons – some buttonhole elastic – sewing thread – a needle – 2 pins – a seam ripper – a thimble (for the more clumsy ;-) )

Monogram etched on wine glasses


monogram-etched-wine-glass-01
One of my colleague made me know a very good Languedoc rosé which has a very original name: the “Retour de plage” (return from beach)

For her retirement, I wanted to offer her two wine glasses engraved with her initial and her husband one. As he is already retired, they can savor (with moderation!) this rosé coming back from the beach.

Give credit where credit is due


tutorial-book-folding
Recently, I have been regularly asked about the computer tools I use for book folding or cut and fold.
Here is (very quickly!) the story:

– Isaac Salazar is an artist who used books to transform them into art sculpture.

– In February 2012 I was the very first one to conceptualize a technique using the Photoshop software. Tutorial I shared for free on this website. I have been looted throughout the world, without credit to my post.

To be self-confident


confident-tshirt-01
In France, health studies begin with a hard selective year. This year requires huge work and is also psychologically hard.
Our daughter is very voluntary (years of swimming competition ended up forging a very strong character). Yet this year, she is doubtful of her abilities.

To convince her she has what it takes to succeed, I made a self-confident tank top, like I did for her cousin (HERE).

Another envelope souvenirs book


envelope-souvenirs-book-2-1
I know, we are already in March and I am a little late publishing this new book-envelopes to store the year souvenirs…

I made a new book for my friend Marie. She is a teddy bear lover (see HERE), “Me to You” matches perfectly.
The hardest part was to find a picture/theme for each month.

Find the detailed tutorial on the first book post HERE.
