Jocole October Blog Tour |Girls Wideleg Pants|

Scroll down for english, please!

Bem vos disse que Outubro ia ser mais movimentado que os últimos meses, senão vejam, hoje é a terceira publicação em dias consecutivos. Hoje, faço parte da pattern tour de Outono da Jocole, e como sempre adorei calças largas, aproveitei e usei o molde Girl'sWideleg Pants para fazer umas para a minha filhota. 

I told you October would see me more often around here, didn't I? This is my third post in a row in the last three days. Today, I am part of Jocole's Fall Tour, and since I've always loved wideleg pants, I used their Girl's Wideleg Pants pattern to make my daughter a new ones. 

Usei um xadrez vermelho e preto que tinha há muito tempo e que me sobrou depois de fazer a saia quando estava grávida (criei uma peça matchy matchy sem querer). O tecido não é nem fino nem grosso, simplesmente perfeito para esta estação, e adoro ver como as calças lhe ficam. Gosto do corte simples, largo, claro. O molde traz duas opções de bolsos, um na costura e o outro é em aplicação, ambos na frente, mas eu saltei qualquer um deles. Estas calças foram uma daquelas coisas que se costuram num instante e que é sempre gratificante. Neste caso, foram apenas 3 peças a cortar: frente, trás e cintura. O único que precisou de mais atenção foi o padrão do tecido que pedia o cuidado de fazer coincidir o xadrez, e até isso correu lindamente. A cintura foi feita com tecido que aproveitei de um casaco de homem e é malha canelada fina. 

I used a black and red plaid fabric from my stash. I still had a little left from the skirt I made while pregnant (and now I have a matchy matchy piece even though I didn't aim for it when I started). 
This is a midweight fabric, perfect for fall, and I love the look of the pants on G. I like the design, the wide legs, of course. The pattern also comes with two pocket options: inseams and patch front pocket, but I skipped both options. This is one of those quick and gratifying project that you can make in a blink. In this case I had 3 pattern pieces only to cut: front, back and waist band. The only thing that needed me to pay attention was matching the fabric pattern and even that went smoothly. I used leftovers from a man's hoodie to make the waist band, and it is a thin rib knit. 

Tirámos as nossas fotos num parque e ela tratou de colocar o conforto das calças a teste, e estas passaram com distinção. Super confortáveis mesmo para miúdas irrequietas e trepadoras. O que quer dizer que de certeza que veremos mais destas por aqui a qualquer momento. Mas fotos em parques não é tarefa fácil, 

We took our photos at a park, and she has put theird comfort to good test, but it passed easily. They are super comfy, even for unstopable and climbing little girls. Which means we will, definately, see more of these at any time over here. Taking photos on a park isn't an easy task though.

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…
