Welcome to the New Year, a new website and a wonderful new team of Petit a Petit Family members! First I want to thank everyone who applied, I am in awe of the talent this world has to offer- choosing was not an easy task and I might have lost a few hours of sleep because of it. So are you ready to be amazed?
We have so many plans and projects already in the works and we are really hoping you will play along. If you happen to be inspired to make or create something from what you read here over the next year, we would love to check it out. Just use the #petitapetitblog hashtag and we will be featuring our favourites on Instagram and I will be creating a quarterly magazine to share all the beautiful creations the team and you will be making which will be viewable here.
Now how about that team? These ladies are incredibly talented and I am so excited to have them part of the family. I highly recommend you check out their blogs and social media if don't already, they don't disappoint!
EMI from Japan
In another lifetime, Emi was happily surrounded by books and spent most of her time reading. After becoming a mom to two rambunctious little girls who love twirly dresses, she finally learned to sew, and now finds herself surrounded by lots and lots of fabric. She blogs about her sewing life on Just Add Fabric.
HOLLI from USA
Holli has been creating and designing for as long as she can remember, from doll clothes fashioned with fabric scraps and rubber bands to applying Mod Podge to every surface she could get her hands on. Now she mostly sews for her kids and designs and sells pdf sewing patterns. She shares her creative pursuits and overshares pictures of her daughters at Hello Holli.
INES from Portugal
Inês fell in love with sewing after buying a machine 5 years ago. She loves kids style and started her blog La Folie as a way to express her creative nature. Crazy prints are one of her addictions, and making fun and colourful clothes for her daughters one of her favourite ways to spend time.
JANE from USA
Jane comes from a long line of makers. After she was gifted a refurbished sewing machine 12 years ago, she taught herself to sew. She started with stuffed animals, graduated to kids clothes, and now takes any opportunity to sew something new. If you see her or her kids, they’re probably sporting something “mama-made.” When she’s not sewing she’s crafting new decor, neighborhood parties, or kid friendly projects, often drawing inspiration from nature. And, while she likes things to be “just right” that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s perfect, her secret tagline: It’s not perfect. It’s Buzzmills!
KRISTI from USA
Kristi is an architect and mother of two living in Philadelphia. She has been knitting and sewing her own clothes, with mixed success, since the ripe old age of 8. Kristi believes clothing can tell a story, and she prefers her stories to be handmade. You can read more of Kristi’s handmade stories, and see her line of kid’s knitting patterns at SweetKM.
LINDA from Italy
Linda is a curious, crafty, creative designer who moved from California to the Tuscan hills of Italy to marry her prince charming. She loves to draw and designs printables for HappyPrintClub.com - all the while sharing her adventures as a creative entrepreneur and mama of two little ones.
MIE from USA
Mie is originally from Denmark but lives in the US with her husband and two daughters (6 and 8). She is a formally trained seamstress with over 15 years of sewing experience and before having kids she had a small women’s apparel company in Denmark. She blogs at Sewing Like Mad and is obsessed with professional finishes and good-quality sewing and pattern making.
