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.

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.

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 touch of pink

It’s been a very very rainy Sunday today here in Hamburg. In order to forget about it I wanted to give you a little bit a colour through my blogpost. I got inspired by a very cool project I am taking part in this week. It is called Post aus meiner Küche – (mail from my kitchen). I received a name and address of my “pen friend” last week and we both baked something for each other this week-end and will post it tomorrow. The motto was “very berry” (that’s why my blog is pink). My little present is almost ready, but I’ll post the pictures during the week, as it has to remain a surprise for my cooking partner. I can’t wait to see what the postman is going to bring!
I also felt like the right weather today to catch up with my sewing machine. I made my self a new scarf. I hope, you will like it.


Aujourd’hui il a plu toute la journée à Hambourg. Alors pour oublier tout ça, j’ai décidé de colorer mon blog en rose. J’ai été inspiré par un super projet auquel je participe cette semaine et qui s’appelle Post aus meiner Küche (du courrier de ma cuisine). J’ai reçu le nom et l’adresse de ma “correspondante” la semaine dernière et nous avons du cuisiner un petit quelque chose l’une pour l’autre cet après-midi pour pouvoir le poster demain matin. Le thème donné était “very berry” (c’est pourquoi j’ai eu envie de faire un blogpost rose). Mon petit cadeau culinaire est presque prêt, mais je ne posterai les photos que pendant la semaine, car il faut que cela reste une surprise pour ma partenaire. J’ai hâte de voir ce que le facteur va m’apporter!
C’était aussi une journée idéale pour passer un peu de temps à coudre. Je me suis cousue une écharpe. J’espère qu’elle va vous plaire.

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!
