Ma Pouchette


Just got this fabric in the mail and had to use it right away, so I made some little pouches for itsy bitsy stuff. I just love the pattern. All those little purses and pouches...I wish they were all mine!

A friend of mine here in France just had a baby girl named Emma, so I decided to make her a little christmas stocking. I know it's a little early, but I wanted to get started on all the stockings to put on etsy so I figured I could use hers as a prototype.
Me likey!

Why so chilly?

Brrr...fall is finally falling upon us here in the South of France. So it's time to pull out all the warmer sweaters, drink mulled cider and read by the fire (okay our fire place actually has a television in it, but we can always watch the television fire...not the same though).

I started what I like to call my "Fall Collection" using darker fabric colours and playing around with different textures. I made a couple of Petit Sacs using wool and a heavy linen and velvet print. I love the way these bags feel especially the wool which is very soft and yummy to touch.

Each bag is lined and has a little pocket perfect for keys and a mobile phone.I also made a couple of matching pouches to hold smaller goodies. What do you think?

All of these are available at my etsyshop.

J'habite en France

Well I have returned back to the Riviera and with soooo much to do.

They have started to put up the Christmas lights here in Vence...Wow christmas already?
Time to start sewing some stockings and other Christmas goodies.

I am attempting to put together a new website, where you can shop directly from the site. And let me tell you I am NOt computer savy, so it is taking me a lot longer than I had anticipated. Trying to get paypal to talk to my website is a lot harder than I thought. Why can't they just say Hello? Arghhhhh

Hopefully, it will be finished before Christmas and yes... I am almost finished the how to video on wallets...it's a slow process... aussi!

Off to sew with my new splints...I look just like the bionic woman (the newer version I think)
