How to: Paw Print Applique

Scroll down for english.

Alguém se lembra deste post? Falei-vos sobre a aplicação na t-shirt da G. e prometi um pequeno passo a passo (PAP) mas nunca cheguei a partilhá-lo. Estava pronto, só faltava mesmo publicar, mas por algum motivo caiu no esquecimento (o que não é raro por aqui). 

Can anyone remember this post? I told you about the t-shirt applique I made for G. and promised to share a quick but haven't done that yet. It was ready, I just had to post it, but somehow, it was forgotten (which isn't new here). 

É muito fácil. Sigam os sete passos.
1. Uma t-shirt passada a ferro.
2. Colocar entretela no tecido que pretendem aplicar.
3. Desenhar o molde da pata. Uma espécie de coração invertido, e uma forma oval pequena.
4. Cortar o molde no tecido.
5. Usar entretela de dupla face para colar a aplicação à t-shirt (nestas peças pequenas uso a fita das bainhas!)
6. Passar com o ferro para fixar.
7. Coser com ponto zigue zague.

It's really easy. Just follow the seven steps. 
1. An ironed t-shirt. 
2. Interface the fabric you want to applique. 
3. Draw your paw pattern. Sort of an inverted heart shape, and a small egg shape. 
4. Cut the pattern into the fabric. 
5. Use double interface to glue the applique to the t-shirt (I usually use hemming tape for small pieces!)
6. Press with your iron. 
7. Sew with a zigzag stitch. 


  1. Tão simples - e ficou tão gira!
    Obrigada pela partilha Magda <3

    1. My pleasure! Simples e faz toda a diferença numa peça.

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…
