A Little Place Called La Pomme

La Pomme which means "apple" in french is a small, dainty shop located inside The Collective at Malugay St., Makati. Apol which also happens to be the name of the owner creates almost everything you see inside this shop. She made sure to make each piece with love and she also wants the children to learn from her creations making sure that (almost) all the items are educational.

So adorable!

Anywhere you look, you can see something colorful and uniquely made which you will be tempted to take home.
DIY is also spelled as F-U-N!

That afternoon, Apol carefully assisted and taught me how to sew a Mini "Message" Bear from scratch. I was all giddy and excited as she prepared all the materials.

Step-by-Step Sew-A-Plush

Apol was really patient and detailed when she taught me how to create my own bear. She made the instructions very clear and easy for a beginner like myself. She also shared some "tricks" on how to make it easier for me to sew.

It was really fun learning this old craft and it felt really good to see my effort come to life!

Apol also has these animal paper maches which you can also bring to life by painting them. I think this will be a fun activity for the little boys.
