Playful prints for children.

I love to draw. As long as I can remember, I've always had a pencil in my hand to doodle away. My life was all about paper : drawing paper, paper cuts and photographic paper. I used to work in black and white, constructing lines and shapes with my inks and my cameras.
One day, I became a mom and everything changed. In my life came colour and softness, volume and fabric. I taught myself to sew and to knit. I began to "draw" with embroidery techniques and fabric paints. As I love to experiment with new techniques, I learned how to screenprint on fabric and everything fell in place.
I now draw with my pencils, my computer and print my designs with coloured inks on fabric to make sewing kits for every children to enjoy.

About the name of my shop : "Carambouilles". I love this word that sounds so typically French ! To a French ear, it refers both to "Carambar" (a caramel stick every child craves for in France) and "Bouille" (a word that designate the chubby cheeks of toddlers).

I wish you a lovely day !

Hi! Thanks for stopping by !
I'm a French girl living in Paris but I grew up in Japan. Without a doubt, my creative process feeds on both French and Japanese cultures - although I try to tone down the Japanese influence : after all, I'm a real Parisian now !

All of my items are made with lots of care. For now, instead of listing handmade finished items, I prefer to sell pdf-files instructions, explaining how to make lovely sewed and embroidered goods.
I enjoy being able to pass on ideas. I hope you will be motivated to craft !

If you want to find out more about me and my work, get inspired, and check out tutorials, you can visit me at my little corner of blogland here:

I want to keep my customers happy. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to send me a message and I will respond to you as fast as possible.

While I try to represent the color of the prints in the photos as accurately as possible, slight variations from the true color are inevitable due to differences between web browsers and individual computer screens.
