I thought I'd make this a post, because despite always being miss know-it-all myself, I have had some very justified pieces of criticism. As commenters told me it's petitE main (singular) and petites mains (plural). 'Main' is a female word. Now, I know my French isn't much good but I have to say I am feeling a bit embarrassed being caught out like this. I should have checked this before registering the blog's name, but I didn't. So thank you, LaKaribane and Karine, you are absolutely right. However, I guess I'm too late to change it now.
