Lovely Fabric: Petit Pan

Tissus Petit Pan. Good morning everyone! At the end of last year, I told you about one of my favorite French fabric designer called France Duval Stalla. Today I am back with some fabric love and another French brand called Petit Pan. Petit Pan is a very colourful brand, but the kind of colours I like! Deep blues and bright pinks! Petit Pan was created in Paris in 2002 and sells decoration items, fabric (with more than 140 different patterns) and clothes made out of those fabrics. Here is a selection of some of my favourite patterns. That is a perfect fabric for decorating a nursery or make a colourful statement with a cushion in your livingroom. I used a blue Petit Pan fabric for the pennant banner in Ella's bedroom. petit Pan

Petit Pan has a very distinctive and joyful style inspired by Asian patterns and colours. I really makes me want to travel. Petit Pan is also well known for their paper lanterns. I have had a red dragon fly in my flat for ages, and it is still one of my favourite decoration items.

You can buy Petit Pan fabric in their shops in Paris, Toulouse and now Antwerp in Belgium, but also in their online shop. I wish you a fantastic day! Elodie

The nursery project #4 - Playing with fabric

Dear readers, as a lot of you already know, I am a little bit of a Liberty addict. I just finished a baby blanket with Liberty fabric on one side and a very pretty Japanese fabric on the other side. I will show it to you later. Yesterday, I have been playing with three different Liberty of London patterns to decorate the walls of the nursery. I used embroidery hoops to frame them. It is a very easy way to display your favorite fabric on the walls. I bought them at the German DIY shop Idee. Here are the three fabrics I picked from my collection - I chose fabrics that fit in the colour concept of the nursery.

Liberty for the nursery

Becci Tana Lawn from the spring/ summer 2012 Glencot House collection was inspired whilst a member of the Liberty Art Fabrics team was reclining on an old patterned chair in the drawing room at Glencot House in Somerset. A layered design of leaves and flowers creates three dimensions drawn from the gardens at Glencot. Becci A is shades of blue, jade and grey.

Poppy and Daisy is on the Classic Tana list since 1979, Liberty Poppy and Daisy was designed in 1974 by the Jack Prince Studio. Version K has brown, blue and purple flowers.

Wiltshire is a leaf and berry pattern which was designed for Liberty in 1933 and redesigned for Tana in 1968. Wiltshire has been on the Classic Tana list since 1979. Colourway L has blue, lilac and olive berries on a dark background.

Liberty Hoops for the nursery

Liberty Wiltshire L Hoop for the nursery I also played yesterday with Muslin squares and Liberty bias tape. I gave it then yesterday night to my friend Sabrina for her 6 weeks old baby - but I will definitely also make some for baby love!

My new reversible blue bag

Here is my new pretty home-made project with some beautiful fabric I brought back from my stay in Lyon.I know it is not very seasonal and I need to wait for some good weather to wear it: means no rain...which happens sometimes in Hamburg! but it was so easy and quick to make: It jus took me one evening after work and I love the fabric.  I hope you had a good week so far. Talk to you soon.

a lazy Sunday afternoon

How was your Sunday afternoon? Mine was pretty cool. I spent the afternoon with my sewing machine listening to a podcast from the very inspiring Holly Becker about blogging. I did a Jewellery Roll I have been wanting to make for a long time - the result isn't perfect and I'll most certainly never sell it, but there you go - I really had fun making it! ★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★

Vous avez passé un bon dimanche après-midi? Le mien était excellent. J'ai renoué avec ma MAC en écoutant un podcast de l'excellente Holly Becker à propos de la blogosphère. J'ai réalisé une pochette à bijoux que je voulais faire depuis longtemps. Le résultat n'est pas parfait et ne fera sans doute jamais partie de ma collection Love On Delivery - mais j'ai passé un très bon moment!

Mister Cheddar had a pretty lazy afternoon too...

and we both wish you a beautiful week!

product photography - first try

As I will be selling my L.O.D. stuff for the first time at the "kleiner Dachladen" (the little roofshop) on May 19th, I need to have some nice photos of my products for the promotion of the event. I will be posting more information about the event soon.After trying a lot of different angles and backgrounds, I decided to shoot the products on a black background with my dear rabbit-pin cushion as visual unifier - and I think it works pretty well. What do you think?

Kindle case for Jodi

Here is a my first attempt to do a case for my friend Jodi's Kindle.The fabric with the letters is from heuteschmid, a very cool handprinted fabric made in Germany. I just love the colour combination. Now I just hope that it fits... Jodi, if you like the pattern, the form and the strap, I will make a bigger one for you!
