petitapetitblog I went to the fabric store yesterday for some cute patches for a DIY project and walked out with this! A cute little lady at the cash looked at my stash and said " oh wow you have a few weeks worth of sewing there!". I smiled politely and was thinking to myself maybe 4 days worth! I better get sewing already! And if you are in Canada they are having 50%off over at @fabricville #isew#fabricaddict#summerready#sewcialist#sewingblogger#fabricville 2d

petitapetitblog Are you and your kids a fan of Miyazaki's films? You will have to visit the Ghibli Museum in Tokyo. In the meantime @e_shimokawa is sharing a lovely post on the blog about her visit to the museum with her kids. Seriously travelling ( or living) to Japan with kids is sounding like a mighty fine idea! #visitjapan#ghiblimuseum#straightfromjapan#petitapetitteam#japanwithkids 1w

Clarendon Petit A Petit Blog & Patterns
petitapetitblog In case you didn't already know... I sewed the same dress as Mie did for Sew Japan. She posted her version on my blog and I on hers @sewinglikemad It was so much fun and interesting to see how we both interpreted the pattern. Will you be joining this month for #sewjapan ? We would love to see what you make. #isew#sewingblogger#japanesesewingbook#sewcialists#petitapetitblog 4w

petitapetitblog Sew Japan with Mie from @sewinglikemad is back and she sewed for herself this month. I just love her fabric choice and combinations. You need to see the inside too! Oh and she has a guest blogger on her blog wearing the same dress, care to guess who? #sewjapan#petitapetitteam#petitapetitblog#sewcialist#sewingblogger#japanesesewingbooks 1mon

petitapetitblog It's been 3 years since the Rana Plaza tragedy in Bangladesh killing 1124 and injuring over 2500 people. We need to give much more thought as too who makes our clothes as well as out textiles. Very few things have changed in last couple of years! There are lot's of little things we can each do and not only during Fashion Revolution week. Let's keep the conversation going. Let's make it a part of our everyday thought process and let it become our only choice. #wecanallmakeadifference#whogrewmyclothes#whomademyclothes #whomademyfabric#makersforfashrev #mommyclothes#imademyclothes#fashrev#petitapetitfashrev 1mon

petitapetitblog I am sharing this upcycled sweater tutorial I did a couple of years ago for the Sewing Rabbit on the blog today as part of Handmade Fashion Revolution Week. I love that it still fits Miss E and how lucky is she to have a soft cashmere cardigan? I totally wish this was mine. @inthefolds is asking what our skills are today, I probably would say upcycling or maybe making something out of nothing! Hehe. Don't forget to link your photos to the blog to take part of the awesome giveaway! All the details on the blog. #fashrev#petitapetitfashrev#imademyclothes#whomadeyourclothes#recycledfashion#isew#sewingtutorial#makersforfashrev#mommademyclothes 1mon

petitapetitblog I keep telling my husband we need to move to Japan! @e_shimokawa always shares the most wonderful activities that she does with her daughters. Today she is sharing one all about cotton on the blog. Such an interesting read and it ties in beautifully with everything we've been discussing this week for handmade fashion revolution week. I wish I could give this type of experience to my children. Happy Earth Day! #petitapetitfashrev#petitapetitteam#whogrewmyclothes#whomademyfabric#organiccotton#supportorganicfarming#handmadeinsideout 1mon

petitapetitblog Do you throw out your fabric scraps or hoard them like I do? You just never know when the right project will come along like this awesome woven clutch by @andsalgueiro - perfect for upcycling too! Get the tutorial on the blog today as part of the handmade revolution fashion week. The less we throw out and the more re-use the better it is for the environment. Every little bit helps! Some companies now recycle fabric scraps and make them into new textiles and garments- it's really fascinating. I remember the bags and bags of scraps that would get trashed when I worked for big companies. So many details and steps of the fashion industry that need to be looked at and changed... For the better. #petitapetitfashrev#imademyclothes#makersforfashrev#upcycledfashion#petitapetitteam#fashrev#whomadeyourclothes 1mon

petitapetitblog A great alternative to buying clothes or fabric is up cycling old ones into new one of a kind items. I've been doing this since I first learned to sew when I was 13 and I never really ever stopped! I guess that gives me 26 years of experience! @inesmelo has a great round up of upcycled tutorials and inspiration for you to make for your kids on the blog today. This coat my daughter is wearing was made from old quilted pillow cases. #fashrev#petitapetitfashrev#handmadeinsideout#imademyclothes#whomadeyourclothes#sewingforkids#recycledclothes#upcycled 1mon
