September Wrap Up


Scroll down for english, please!

As coisas andaram praticamente paradas aqui no blog. Foi da falta de vontade + disponibilidade + tempo para tal, o meu S. é um verdadeiro furacão. A mana não foi nada assim e tem-me custado acompanhar o ritmo de forma a sobrar um cantinho para mim e as minhas coisas. Por esse mesmo motivo, tenho andado mais frustrada do que o normal, e deu-me assim uns ventos fortes e acabei por cortar o meu longo cabelo que-eu-nunca-corto, mas assim mesmo curtinho. Mas, Setembro ainda cheira a férias (uma vez que a G. só começou a pré a 21 e tudo) e por aqui houve tempo para muito. Um aniversário, um casamento, muita brincadeira em parques, diversão, bons momentos em família e com amigos. A G. recebeu as duas amiguinhas da escola anterior em casa e adorou. Foi também requisitada para outros 3 encontros. Houve muito brincar ao faz de conta, onde comemos grandes pequenos almoços, e onde a boneco e o crocodilo celebraram o seu casamento também. O S. trepa tudo o que pode. A G. dormiu sem proteções na cama pela primeira vez. Perdi três dias a re-organizar roupa no quarto deles, uma vez que o tempo está a mudar. A minha G. tem mais sapatos que uma loja inteira. No casamento, foi queimada por um cigarro (já está bem!). Eu pouco costurei, mas ao menos pude fazer mais uns quadrados para a nossa manta, embora bem menos que o mês passado. 


Things have been really slow around this blog, it was lack of will + disponibility + time for it, my S. is a true hurricanne. His sis wasn't like that at all and it's been hard for me to follow such rythm in order to be able to do any of my stuff. For that reason, I have been feeling a bit more frustrated than usual, so I was blown away and cut my long hair, which-I-never-cut, really really short. September still smells like holidays (G. only started preschool on the 21st), and we had enough time for a lot. A birthday, a wedding, a lot of playing in parks, fun, good family and friends moments. G. recieved her two friends from the previous school for a playdate and she loved it. She was also requested to 3 other playdates. There was a lot of pretend play, where we ate big breakfasts, and her doll and crocodile celebrated a wedding too. S. climbs everything he reaches. G. slept for the first time, without her security bars. I lost three days trying to organize their clothes as time is changing. My G. has more shoes than an entire shop. At the wedding, she was burnt by a cigarette (she's fine now!). I haven't been sewing much, but at least I was able to grow my granny squares blanket, although not as much as last month. 


Quanto a publicações no blog, isto andou mesmo às moscas. À parte o wrap up the Agosto, apenas publiquei a minha tentativa de concluir alguns pins selecionados do Pinterest, e o vestido que fiz para a G. levar ao casamento dos meus primos. Carreguem nas fotos para vos levar ao post original. 

When it comes to the blog, it has been really off. Apart from the August wrap up post, there were only two more, my attempt to make a few of the pins I selected from Pinterest, and the dress I made for G. to wear at my cousins wedding. Click the photos to take you to the original post. 

   

Prometo um Outubro mais activo por aqui. 

I promess a more active October around here.

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…
