“Amelie” is hands-down my favorite movie of all-time. Seriously– OF. ALL. TIME. This movie changed my life when I was 16 years old. I wrote my entrance essay for college on “Amelie.” My senior quote in the yearbook was from Hipolito’s book: “Sans toi, les emotions d’aujourd hui me seraient que la peau morte des emotions d’autrefois.” I saw so much of Amelie in me– the shyness and quirkiness in particular– and I have striven to emulate her kindness and generosity 9+ years since I first saw the movie. There aren’t as many crafty items for this movie as I would have thought, but less is more! Don’t forget to check out everyone’s Etsy shops!
Today, as I ruminated on the four hours of sleep I got last night, I had a brilliant idea: I want to have a weekly feature called Cinema on Etsy. I am going to search for crafts that were inspired by different films and post the highlights of my finds here. And what better starting point than “Coraline”? The very story lends itself easily to crafting, as Coraline comes upon a doll who spies on her and then opens a door into another world. Show some love to our fellow crafters and check out their pages!
