1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Softy-Bunny on: April 21, 2011 04:16:12 AM
Recently I wanted to design and sew my own plush-kawai-rabbit and ended by making 8 of them.

So which one do you prefer ?

(edit 05/19/2011)

Edit : Examples / larger images.

2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Pumpkin pie on: November 07, 2010 04:23:22 AM
Pumpkin Pie recipe :

Leave a black cat skin to dry five hours in the sun, stretch it and cut in a circle, that would do for the Shortcrust pastry.
Pick one of your most rotten and swarming with worms pumpkin, cook it in your usual cauldron.
Fill the pastry with the pumpkin and bake it in your oven for a short hour.

When done, steal some candies to the nearest kids and use them to decorate your pie.

Make sure to invite some very good friends (like I did - see the picture )and share with them this marvelous pie.

3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / The witch and her cat on: November 07, 2010 04:00:55 AM
Just before the customary Trick-or-treating event, a little soon-to-become-a witch, that we will name "Tiffany", reahearsed some of her latest magic tricks with her big white cat, that we will name "Greebo".

I guess these two will have a basket full of candies in no time ^^

PS : on the third photo you can see that the doll has received the same costume as her  mistress-witch.

4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Baby bootees and little bag well matched. on: September 26, 2010 11:00:30 AM

Here is a pair of cute bootees that I made for my second nephew.
They are chocolate / automnal colored and made with linen and cotton fabric.

My insipration for the cute slippers is from a french sewing book "Simple sewing for good children"

For the little bag I used a tutorial on another french blog "My tresure chest"

Hope you will like them ^^

5  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Historical Medieval outfit on: September 12, 2010 11:59:50 PM
Here is a little complete costume that I made for my little girl (7yo). It's based on historical patterns and iconography.
It's a 15th century merchant daughter from France.

The "Chainse" (undergarment) and the "cale" (head) are made of thick cotton , the dress is made of flax.
We added a little leather "aumnire" (purse) attached to a rope-belt, and a little "fibula" (brooch) of celt inspiration.
The boots a non-historical.

Pictures were taken during a Medieval fair in Crmieu (France).


6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Kawa Fishing on: September 11, 2010 01:31:03 AM
Here is a little set I made so my kids can play Kawa fishing.
All the fish are made of felt as well as the 2 fishing pole (except for the rope part).
The good thing about it is that you can create different fish with different colors according to your likings.

Icecream Soze waits until his wife and kids have melted then he goes after the rest of the mob. He eats the ice cream cones, bites their waffle, crunches the small chocolate chunks. He burns down the ice cream truck and kills the driver. And like that he was gone....  pshitt !!
8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Pirate Pig and his chest. on: June 17, 2010 11:20:03 AM
"Fifteen men on the dead pig's chest--
...Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!
Drink and the devil had done for the rest--
...Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!"

9  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Felt Cupcake + tutorial. on: June 06, 2010 06:52:00 AM
Here is a quick, easy-to-do felt cupcake that I made for my girl's doll tea set.

Home felt cupcake recipe :

1-Gather all the ingredients (vary colors).
2-Prepare the dough by sewing the bottom circle to the border.
3-Leave to rest and start with the decoration of the cake.
4-Arrange thin slices of dough on the 2nd circle and sew them.
5-Add a cherry or a currant (sew them with stitches all around the smallest circle, fill in with  padding while pulling on the thread, then fix to your cake), leaves or whatever you want according to your imagination
6-Go back to your dough, add the cream (the filling ^^) as you sew close this good cake.
7-Use the piping bag on the outline of the cupcake to add a creamy touch.
8-Good tasting, waiting for your opinions on my recipe.
