April Wrap up

Scroll down for english, please. 

Queria ter feito este post no passado fim de semana, mas ando tão sem vontade de me sentar e escrever, ou editar fotos. Por isso vai tarde, mas vai. 

I've been wanting to make this post last weekend, but I've not been in the mood to just sit and write, or edit photos. So, it's gonna be late, but here it goes. 

Abril foi um mês cheio de coisas boas. Primeiro uma prima veio passar com um fim de semana e fomos levá-la a um jogo de futebol (é uma estrela está minha sobrinha). Depois a outra prima veio visitar e houve muita brincadeira e loucura também. Tivemos um bebé a desenvolver imenso, sonecas boas no meio dos brinquedos, roupinha nova para ele, puzzle mania de volta para ela. Passeámos muito como sempre. Ela também gosta da bola. Comecei a destralhar a casa e tenho continuado. Re-organizei os acessórios para o cabelo dela, forrei uma caixa com tecido para decorar o quarto dela, arranjei uma nova "mesa de trabalho". E pensei muito... 

April was a month full of good things. First of all, One cousin stayed over for a weekend, and we took her to her football match (m niece is a star). Then we had the other cousin visiting and there was a lot of play and craziness too. We had a growig baby, sleeping between toys, new little clothes for him, puzzle mania for her again. We walk around a lot as always. She likes a ball too. I started destashing my house and been going on. I've reorganized her hair acessories, covered a cardbox in fabric for her room's deco, I got a new "working table". And, I thought a lot... 


Não tenho costurado tanto como habitualmente. E as coisas que vou fazendo, muitas delas, não podem ser ainda partilhadas. Mas tentei não ter o blog completamente ao abandono e mostrei-vos coisas feitas anteriormente. Basta carregarem na imagem para lerem o post completo, caso o tenham perdido. 

I haven't been sewing as much as usually. And the things I have been making, most of them, can't be posted yet. I tried not to keep the blog abandoned though, and have showed you things I made in the past. You just have to click in the images to take you to the full post, in case you've missed it. 


Embora o blog seja mais direcionado paras as roupas, por vezes gosto de fazer outras coisas. Comecei o mês com um coelho da Páscoa (com o PAP), e depois uma estrela cujo molde testei. Para finalizar, o sling que fiz para a minha filha levar os seus bebés como eu levo o mano. 

Although this is mainly a clothes sewing blog, sometimes I like to make other things. I started the month making an Easter bunny (with a tutorial), and then a star for a pattern test. Then, there was the sling I made for my daughter to carry her baby dolls as I do with her brother. 


Quanto às roupas, partilhei dois vestido para dança, que me foram encomendados o ano passado, e também o meu segundo teste ao vestido Antalya. 

When it comes to the clothes, I shared two dance dresses I was ordered last year, and also m second test to the Antalya dress pattern. 

E apenas para gozo pessoal, fiz uma colagem dos meus miúdos a usares as suas peças feitas à mão, o que acontece com frequência. 

Just for a little personal fun, I made a collage of my kids wearing their handmades, which happens a lot of times.

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…
