TOP 5 of 2014 |day 1: the HITS|

Last year I participated in the Top 5 of 2013, and I don't know if anyone is organizing that again this year, but I am doing my own here this year too. Between today and the end of the month/year, I will be posting about my top 5: hits, misses, reflections, most seen and on the 1st of January, I will post my top 5 goals. And I am starting today with the hits.

#5 |Newborn Onesie|

I made this long sleeved and a short sleeved version of these. They are newborn sized and this particularly one was the first piece of clothe my baby boy wore. He looked just too cute in it. It didn't fit for too long, of course. 

#4 |Red Velvet Jacket|

This jacket was one of the first pieces of 2014. I refashioned a pair of woman's red velvet pants into it and it is warm, cute and stylish. My daughter wears this often and everybody feels jealous about it. A true hit. 

#3 |Paris Outfit & Spring Showers Jacket|

This might be one of my favourite outfits ever. In these pictures my daughter is wearing three of the cutest pieces I made her. An Izzy top, small fry skinny jeans and spring showers jacket. She wears all pieces often, which is great!

#2 |Maternity Shirt|

Number 2 on my top 5 is something for me. I made this shirt while competing in Challenge Create. It is a maternity shirt, that became a  nursing shirt for a white and now it's just a cute tunic waiting for summer to be used again. I love all about it. One of my favourite pieces from all the ones I made myself in years. 

#1 |Duvet Cover|

My absolutely number one is my new duvet. I started making it in 2013 and only finished it over a year later, but it was so worth it. I haven't really put a blog post about it yet, but I really had to include it as my number one in this list. I had never done such a huge patchwork work, and it's not perfect, but I love it so much!

Come back tomorrow for my 5 misses of 2015. 


  1. Nem te sei dizer de qual gosto mais... :-) mas adoro a túnica...

    1. Obrigado. Há tantas outras coisas que adoro, um deles ainda nem publiquei (o tal que te mostrei) mas fica para o pró ano.

  2. (Comecei de tras para a frente... do mais recente ate este) Que posts fantasticos, adorei ler! A colcha esta espectacular!

    1. A ideia não foi minha, já tinha feito o ano passado inspirada noutro blog, e este ano quis repetir porque adorei rever tudo o que ficou para trás em 2014.

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…
