Retour à la garderie et patron gratuit/Back to Kindergarden and free pattern

Bonjour! Aujourd’hui c’est mon tour pour la tournée du retour à l’école organisée par mes amies Ula (Lulu & Celeste) et Deb (Sprouting JubeJube ). Il y a beaucoup d’information, de choses à gagner, de blogs à visiter, je vais essayer de rendre ça le plus facile possible à suivre. J’avoue, moi-même je m’y perds un peu… :)

Hello! Today it’s my turn to the Back 2 school organized by my friends Ula (Lulu & Celeste) and Deb (Sprouting JubeJube). There is a lot of information, things to win, blogs to visit, I’ll try to make it as easy as possible to follow. I admit, I am myself a little lost… :)

La rentrée est une période très intense pour les filles…enfin pas vraiment pour elles, surtout pour moi: La maman des Filles à Maman. La plus grande commence la sixième année et les jumelles entament leur dernière année à la garderie. Souliers, fournitures scolaires, manteaux d’hiver, bottes, magasinage interminable….avant j’aimais magasiner. Pour vrai.  Aujourd’hui, j’aimerais mieux coudre leur garde-robe entière que de mettre un pied au centre d’achat. Il faut dire que je trouve super flatteur aussi que mes lapines se vantent haut et fort que c’est moi qui a tout cousu, et que les éducatrices n’en reviennent pas. Oui, la belle couture ça nous flatte dans le sens du poil.

Alors, voilà quelques uns des morceaux cousus pour l’automne pour mes cocottes. D’abord La jupe Jolie avec un courbe dans l’ourlet comme un chemisier.  Normalement ce patron est droit, mais comme je refais souvent les même morceaux, j’aime ajouter des variations.  Le tissu est une merveille du Club Tissus, c’est un chambray à pois avec tencel: Il est doux, frais, et tellement beau! Vous pouvez acheter la jupe et tous les patrons des FAM à 25% de rabais pendant la tournée en utilisant le code BTS2016, ici sur le site des FAM ou sur ETSY. Se termine le 28 août à minuit (EDT).

September is a very intense period for the girls … well not really for them, but for me: The mother of  “Filles à Maman”. The biggest one begins sixth grade and the twins entering their final year at daycare. Shoes, school supplies, winter coats, boots….endless shopping. Before I loved shopping. For real. Today, I would rather sew their entire wardrobe instead putting one foot to the shopping center. I must say that I find very flattering that my little rabbits also boast loudly that it’s me who has everything sewn, and the ladies are amazed. Yes, sewing makes us feel proud.

So that’s some of the pieces sewn for fall for my twins. First, a Jolie skirt with a curved hem. Normally the hem of this pattern is straight, but as I often redo the same things, I like to add variations each time. The fabric is a wonder of the Club Tissus is a chambray dotted with tencel: It is soft, fresh, and so beautiful! You can buy the skirt and all FAM pattern with a 25% discount during the tour by using the code BTS2016, here on the shop or on ETSY. Ends August 28 at midnight (EDT).

Il y a aussi les bas de The Wolf and the Tree avec frange ajoutée. C’est une bande de jersey d’environ 10 cm de large que j’ai fendue aux centimètres, puis j’ai tiré sur le tissu pour que les bandes rétrécissent un peu. Le jersey à tendance à roulotter un peu, c’est ce qui donne cet effet ”cordon”. Les rayures, c’est un Ponte de Viscose de chez Tania. On l’aime.

There is also the ”Going Rogue Socks” from The Wolf and the Tree with added fringe. Fringe is a jersey strip about 10 cm wide that I cutted every centimeters, and then I pulled the fabric so that the bands roll on itself a little.  Stripes are a Viscose Ponte. We love it.

Le chandail, j’espère que vous l’aimez aussi, c’est un projet qui est en travail en ce moment. Je suis complètement absorbée par le-dit projet en ce moment. À suivre…

The T-Shirt, I hope you like it too, it’s a project that I am working on right now. I am completely absorbed by this project right now. To be continued…

Un patron gratuit!

Je vous avait dit qu’il y aurait un patron gratuit! Eh bien, j’ai décidé de remettre le patron du sac-à-dos “Fox Trot et Buzzy Buddy” sur le site, mais cette fois il sera gratuit. C’est un des premier patrons que j’ai fait et l’esthétique est très différente des nouveaux patrons des FAM. Sauf que. Il est super ”hot” quand même! À partir d’aujourd’hui, il est disponible sur le site: FOX TROT & BUZZY BUDDY-SAC A DOS GRATUIT.

A free back pack pattern!

I told you there would be a free pattern! Well, I decided to give the “Fox Trot and Buzzy Buddy” Back Pack on the shop. This is one of the first pattern I did and aesthetics is very different from the new patterns of FAM. But. It is great anyway! From now, it is available here: FOX TROT & BUZZY BUDDY-SAC FREE BACK PACK.
