My Weekly Refashion Share #4 |Shirt|

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


Back in May I was part of the Muse of the Morning Pattern Tour. The pattern I chose to make and review for the tour was the Billy Bright Eyes Snappy Tee Shirt, and I made it in size 2 for my daughter... Somewhere later that month I was able to finally finish the second one I had started (and mentioned in that post then). It is a 6M sized one for my baby boy, and I used the long sleeve with cuffs option. And, of course it was refashioned! 


To make this, I started with two before pieces. An orange woman's sized top my mom gave me not longer ago, and I've never liked but always saw potentional on it for the kids (and because I pretty much keep most of the knit pieces I come across...); and, left overs from a (bigger) kid's shirt I had cut years ago to make a waist band. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough fabric to make the collar with this brown colour as I first hoped to. I still like it in orange, so it's no big deal. What would you like better?!


I found my missing snaps, but I just wasn't lucky with them, they weren't a very good quality ones and I just rather had some metallic ones sewn by hand to my boy's shirt. The collar ended up with this very small pintucks on the front which makes me feel not so happy about the finished piece, but to make up for it, I really like the small pocket on the front. It's not part of the pattern, and it's the only thing I made differently this time. An easy and quick sew and two more items refashioned, used to the fullest and out of my pile!

    1. Thanks Stacy. It will take a couple of months until it fits but I can't wait to see him wearing it too.

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…
