I was alway a great fan of Petit Pan, long before we spoke about having a family. What’s not to like : bright colours, lovely prints, cute shapes.
I often thought about copying their creations because they look fairly simple, though really well made. They also look really fun and practical. I once made some fabric storage for my god daughter inspired by something I saw in Petit Pan’s window. It worked out quite nicely.
When I now think about things I want to make for our future baby (only a few more weeks to go) I always dream of Petit Pan-like things. A baby’s blanket, jacket, our maybe a mobile. The great thing about them is that they also sell fabric and trims. So you can actually make things inspired from their collection.
A few days ago Mum took me out shopping for the baby. The sales are still going here in Paris, it’s the best time to get a few cheap treasures. We went to Petit Pan and Mum bought a nice blanket for the baby. I only bought some lovely bias that
I used with some very soft purple fleece I had at home. For under 10€ I made my own Petit Pan blanket and it looks really cute.
I really recommend looking at their Pinterest pins, they have great pictures for inspiration. For those of us who live a colourful Life, this is endless ressource for creative ideas …
Petit Pan have many shops. My usual are : 37, 39 and 76 rue François Miron, 75004 Paris.
