Sarah the Starfish Pattern (testing)

Scroll down for english!


Alguém se lembra do jogo de bowling, cujo molde, de Mignon Prider testei o ano passado? Gostei desse teste, e da ideia de fazer algo diferente do habitual. Por isso, quando a Mignon me contactou com um novo molde por testar, fiquei feliz pela oportunidade. Desta vez, testei um peluche, em forma de uma estrela do mar (com guiso, ou não dentro), a Sarah Starfish. tão fofa, não é? E, testar para esta designer é tão fácil. O molde é super simples, e as instruções já estavam perfeitas, só um erro ou dois ortográficos (no teste, já foi corrigido, claro!).

Can you remember the fabric bowling game pattern by Mignon Prider, I've tested last year? That was a fun test, I loved to do something different from what I usually do. So, when I heard from Mignon again, with a new pattern to test, I was happy and of course, jumped in. This time, I've tested the Sarah Starfish pattern. How cute? And, testing for this designer is so easy.  Sarah the starfish, is an easy to make softie, with (or without if you want to) rattle inside, the pattern is quite simple, and the instructions were nearly perfect, not much to note. 


O tecido sugerido para este projeto é pelucia ou polar, mas porque sou atrevida, cortei uma saia de lã que tinha por aqui, mesmo antes de confirmar se tinha estes tecidos no meu stock pessoal. À partida são tecidos que não costumo ter. Na verdade, gostei muito do resultado. Ainda bem que a saia era bem comprida, porque acho que vou ter que fazer pelo menos mais um par de Sarahs, já que ambos os meus filhos a adoraram. Mas a Sarah não ficou cá por casa por muito tempo, já que no dia seguinte a ter sido costurada, participei no encontro linhas & agulhas em Faro, para o qual nos foi pedido que contribuíssemos com algo feito por nós, para doar ao Refugio Abuim Ascenção, e eu levei a estrelinha. Mas antes de ser doada, levámos ela a passear até à praia, para que nos deixasse com boas memórias... hehehehe... 

The suggested fabric for this project is minky or fleece, but just because I dare, I've cut into a wool skirt I had, before even looking through my stash. I already knew those were fabrics I don't usually have a lot (or any) of. I actually really like how it turned out. I am glad the skirt was long because I just might have to make a pair of Sarahs. Both my kids loved it so much, but this one wasn't going to stay around for too long. Last weekend I attended a meeting of knitters, sewers, etc. We were asked to bring something to donate to a local charity organization, and I loved the idea. Sarah the starfish was donated the day after she was made, but before she left us, we visited the beach, so she could leave us with a good memory of her... hehehehe...

  1. Ficou muito gira! Eu gosto deste brinquedos handmade e fiz alguns para o L. Aqui há tempos tentei fazer umas almofadinhas em estrela, mas nunca me saíram bem, e parece tão simples.

    1. Obrigao Diana! Tb gosto muito. Este molde é mesmo super fácil de fazer. o que leva mais tempo é bordar os olhos. A única coisa que sugeri à designer, foi fazer a estrela um pouco maior, e ela gostou da ideia. No entanto não vem no molde, embora esteja guardada a ideia para algo mais tarde que ainda não posso/devo revelar.

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…
