The Liebster Award

A few days ago, nearly two weeks ago already (oh dear, I'm sorry!), Teri Olson (Climbing the Window author) surprised me with the Liebster Award, which is a blogger-to-blogger award meant to recognize blogs with small readership and to help widen their audience. 

So, when nominated for a Liebster award, the nominee must answer the questions from the nominator and provide 5 random facts about her or himself.  Then the nominee pays it forward by nominating more small blogs for the award and sending them more fun questions, normally by leaving a comment on the blog with a link to the nominating post.

I will play by the rules this time... so I'll start with...

My blog nominations go to (randomly):

And Questions for the nominated bloggers (if they choose to participate):

1. What's your main inspiration when it comes to sewing?

2. What do you like to sew the most? 

3. How did you learn to sew?

4. Have you teach anyone to sew in your life?

5. What are you working on at the moment?

Then answer the questions from Teri:

1. What is your favorite part of blogging?

The sharing. I love to read the comments people leave about the things I make. Also, I love that it has allowed me to learn so much through other's tips, tutorials, etc. 

2. When you were younger, would you ever have imagined that you would be sewing as an adult? Why or why not?

Well, I was already sewing for my dolls back then. and I started sewing for myself as a teenager, so I guess it has always been part of me. 

3. How many unfinished projects do you have laying around?  And if you don't have any, what's your secret?

Not many right now. I used to have dozens of projects started. But one day I decided "no more" and when a project gets "stuck" I simple ignore it, throw it away, undo it and start a freash new one. I am more disciplined now and always try to finish one thing before I start another one. 

4. What's your favorite movie?
Mmmm... there are a few... most of them by Tim Burton. 

5. Do you still see yourself doing some form of blogging/sewing in one year? In five years?
Yes, one or 5 years... I love it, but... you never know!

TERI thank you for thinking of me for the award and sorry it took me so long to play along. Did you see my take on your Izzy pattern? Everybody, if you haven't seen it or tried it yet, I totally advice you to. I will surely use it again, and again. 


  1. I absolutely love Tim Burton. I don't think he's ever made a movie I didn't like, but my favorite is Alice in Wonderland, with Coraline as a close second.

    1. I love not only his movies but all his work... I even own a couple of books by Burton. Coraline is a great movie too, but it's not his... it is Henry Selick's.

  2. I was the same way, with starting sewing young. I love Tim Burton's movies, too! I will try to get a post up this week…I do like how you learn a bit more about other bloggers with these awards. :)

    1. It's great to know a little bit more about bloggers we follow, it helps me understand a bit more of their work. I will love to read a bit more about you too.

  3. Thank you for the award, Magda! And challenge accepted! :)

  4. Thanks for the award! Sorry I'm so late in replying. I'll try to get a post up about this. :)

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…
