May Wrap Up

Scroll down for english, please!

Este mês dediquei-me muito menos às costuras e muito mais a outras coisas da minha vida. Assumi o compromisso de passar mais tempo de qualidade com os meus filhos, e embora ainda não esteja satisfeita, ao ver todas as pastas de fotos de momentos felizes do mês que termina, senti-me no bom caminho. Nas fotos: A G. adorou ser bailarina e fazer fichas de meninos crescidos (labirintos, diferenças, etc). Ela penteia o irmão. Nós no parque. 1º de Maio e caracóis. Já começou a época de praia! Puzzles, sempre. Ela querida pelos primos. Fiz outras manualidades. Testei a Timmy Top. Ele já come finger foods. Ela dá-lhe o leite pela manhã. Testei os Morocco Pants. Comprei uns sapatos novos para um casamento. As coisas têm estado muito paradas por aqui. Honestamente tenho-me sentido um bocadinho engolida por tudo isto (testes, tour, datas...) e precisei de me afastar um pouco. Depois disso, tenho lido cada vez mais bloggers a queixarem-se do mesmo. Parece até que a diversão já não é a mesma para algumas de nós. Acreto porém que é apenas uma fase para mim, não me consigo afastar mesmo do meu blog, e vou mais devagar, mas não vou embora. 

This month I have dedicated less time to sewing and much more to the other stuff in my life. I've assumed the compromise of spending more quality time with my children, and although I'm not quite yet satisfied enough, looking back at this month's happy moments photos, I felt like I am in the right path. In the photos: G. loved being a ballerina and doing big kids activities (labyrinths, differences, etc). She brushes his hair. Us in the park. 1st of May and snails. Beach season has began! Puzzles, always. She's loved by her cousins. I made other crafts. i tested the Timmy Top. He's eating finger foods already. Things have been really slow around here. To be honest I've been feeling overwhelmed by it all (tests, tours, deadlines...) and I needed to step back a little. After that, I've been reading more and more blogger complaining about the same. Seems like this is no longer fun enough for all of us. But I believe it's just a season for me, I truly can't get away from my blog, so I slowed down, but I am not going anywhere. She feeds him his milk in the morning. I tested the Morocco pants. I bought myself a pair of new shoes for a wedding.

And as for the blog, here's the posts from May. You can click on each picture for details on each project. 



Fiz parte do Women's Bundle Up Tour com os calções Clemece da Filles à Maman, e o Myconos Tankini Collection da Golden Riply. Partilhei algumas coisas que já tinham sido feitas há algum tempo, dois babetes, uma almofada de amamentação e um Sling. Participei no desafio Top Stitchers, e publiquei com muito orgulho, cinco novas peças. Depois disso, mostrei-vos o Summer Surprise da Sofilantjes num tour comemorativo do seu 1º aniversário, e para terminar, participei de mais um divertido desafio, o Mystery Challenge com um vestido inspirado na Queda do Muro de Berlin. 

I was part of the Women's Bundle Up Tour with the Clemence Shorts by Filles à Maman and the Myconos Tankini Collection by Golden Riply. I shared a couple of crafts with a few months done already, two baby bibs, a breastfeeding pillow and a baby Sling. I got to participate in the Top Stitchers Challenge and I proudly shared 5 new pieces in one post. After that, I shared the Summer Surprise pattern by Sofilantjes on her 1st anniversary tour, and to finish I got to be part of the fun Mystery Challenge with a dress inspired in the Fall of the Berlin Wall. 


  1. Tu és linda, eles são lindos e os sapatos super giros. A capacidade de nos afastarmos para ver o mundo com novos olhos é muito saudável, fazes bem. Beijos mil minha querida.

    1. Finalmente a responder aos comentários querida! Obrigado pelas tuas doces palavras. Os sapatos são um must... hehehe... beijinhos

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…
