My Carnival (and other) Costumes Round Up

And we've come to the last day of my mini Carnival series... if you just arrived here today, I've shared, for the past week the costumes my daughter wore this year and the last one. I also have put up two turorials to make two of them, Snow White and Sock Monkey. They were both refashions. Today, I am bringing a small round up of costumes from previous years. 

Not all of them were meant for Carnival. There's two Santa Claus Costumes (boy and girl) obviously made for Christmas. 

There's also a Flamenco Dress and a Flamenco Boy's Outfit that weren't made for Carnival either, but they are used as Carnival costumes around here too... I have blogged about them before. HERE

On top, there is a little Devil's Costume. I made it for a costumer last year and have never blogged about it before. My daughter was about the same age and I tried it on her to check the fit. She looked just too cute. 

Then you have the Sock Monkey Costume I shared with you (and tutorial) yesterday, followed by the very first costume I ever made. It is a Dalmatian Dog Costume, it is only a 3M size and it was made for my nephew, eight years ago. My sister still has it, so when G. was about the same age I used it to make a little photo shoot with her. Adorable! It's all I could say. But as I was checking it back, I was just too ashamed with the finishes in it. Eight years ago I wasn't that good sewing as I am today, and that is a huge prove. 

The Prisioner is my nephew's costume too... one of my faves I'd say. It turned out just too cute and fitted him perfectly. He loved it too. The same year, I made his sister a 20's Lady Costume (picture below), she was so happy with it and all the feather's it had (and lost too). 

And the last costume above, is the Ant Costume I made for G.'s first Carnival. Making her an ant costume was a family joke, and I have blogged about it, and also shared a tutorial too. HERE

Not on the pictures, I have also made a Minnie Mouse Costume for my niece last year, and many years ago, I made four adult Medieval dresses. I might have to search photos of these and share sometime in the future. it's all for the Carnival theme now. I hope you have enjoyed it and perhaps you found some inspiration for the next costumes you'll make.

My Weekly Refashion Share #1 |FREE pattern & tutorial|

If you're looking for the giveaway, please click HERE

A couple of months ago I made these two onesies for my baby boy. You can read more about them by clicking each photo.
They were both refashions from t-shirts, and ever since I made them, I've been wanting to share a tutorial. But not only a tutorial, you can have a FREE pattern, the one I drafted for my own. If you are expecting a baby, or have someone close to you that is, this would make a great gift, so go ahead, grab the PATTERN, print it and let's start sewing. 
Note before you start: - Some pattern pieces need to be taped together. In order to do that, you have to match the number on the pattern and letters A to B. Example: piece 4A to piece 4B. Tape them matching the symbols on both pieces.  - I didn't realise it, but I've added two star pattern pieces, but just one is enough, of course. It is an optional add.  - All seams are 1/4" except for sleeves hem, which are 1" long.  - Just one more t…

Pocket Sling Tutorial

Back in September, I guest posted for Tasha over I Seam Stressed, while she was adjusting to her new life as mom of two. For that post, I've put up a tutorial on how to do your own pocket sling. Today's, I am bringing it home, since all we think about now is Christmas and all the handmade presents we have to make, i think this should be a good idea to gift a new mom or a pregnant relative/friend in your life. Enjoy!

Since my appearence here is due to Tasha's baby boy's birth, I thought I'd come up with something every mom should have. Especially when they are still newborns (even though I used mine until my little one was around one year old, then she just wanted to walk everywhere and we slowly left it aside). I am talking about a baby pocket sling, of course.

I prefer pocket slings over ring slings by far, it gives me a better sense of security, but that might be just me. And today I will share a tutorial on how to do your own.

So, the first thing you have to do is…

The Dreaming of Spring Blazer |FREE PDF Pattern| day 1 of the Sew along

EDITED: You have until the 30th of November to link your blazer to the flickr group to have a chance to win a free pattern for the Bubble Shorts pattern by DoGuincho. Read more about it here.

If you are new to my blog, you might not know that I have promised to share a pattern for the blazer I made my daughter when I competed in the Sew Off. If you were following already back then, well, I am sorry I kept you waiting for so long. If you haven't yet, you might want to check out the blazers my friend testers made. You'll love them, I'm so sure!

It was about time to give something back, since I've been getting so much from this wonderful sewing community, and keep up with my word. After all, I've always heard it's better late than never, right? And it's FREE so: please don't complain.

This pattern will fit a 18 months to 2 year old, but I believe it has space to grow - especially on the sleeves department. I guess it really depends on your child. Mine was…
