Swoodson Says Pattern Tour

Scroll down for english. 


Esta é uma publicação diferente. De vez enquanto aparecem por aqui algumas peças aparte as roupas para os miúdos ou para mim. Gosto de, por vezes, me dedicar a outros projetos, sejam costura ou não. Neste caso, continuamos dentro da costura, sim, com um brinquedo para miúdos. Na verdade, é um três em um, eu diria. Apresento-vos a palete de pintor, molde que escolhi fazer para o pattern tour da Stephanie do blog Swoodson Says.  E como dizia eu acima, é um três em um, porque antes de mais nada, é uma palete para se brincar ao faz de conta, claro. Mas tem mais duas características: serve perfeitamente como almofada, e é também um puzzle de cores.

This is a different post today. Once in a while a few pieces that aren't clothing for me or the kids, take place. Sometimes, I like to dedicate myself to different projects, sewing related or not, it is in this case though, with a kid's softy. In fact, this is a three in one, I'd say. Let me introduce you the little artist palette, that's the pattern I chose to make for Stephanie, from Swoodson Says pattern tour. And as I said above, this is a three in one, because it is a pretend play paintor's palette, of course. But it is also a perfect soft pillow, and a color puzzle. 


Como? Cada uma das cores tem uma parte removível que "fecha" com velcro na respetiva cor costurada na palete. A pensar na palete a ser usada como almofada, a designer faz uma chamada de atenção para se usar a parte mais suave do velcro, na parte que fica costurada à palete para não magoar a pele ao encostar a cara, por exemplo. Para fazer as cores usei restos de feltro que tinha por casa, e o velcro, na foto do molde está bem mais bonitinho porque as cores correspondem às da palete, mas como apesar de eu saber que tenho mais cores, não as encontrei, usei velcro branco mesmo. Só tive o cuidado de usar cores iguais de linha - o que compreende estar constantemente a trocar linha e bobine que é coisa que me faz revirar os olhos, assim muito mesmo, mas claro, vale a pena porque fica muito mais giro ;) 

How? Well, each color as a removable part that "closes" with matching colors velcro to the palette's colors. And instructions call up your attention to the fact that softest piece of velcro should be sewn to the palette's colors instead of the removable pieces, so it keep the pillow soft, protecting kids skin. To make the colors I used felt scraps frm my stash, and although the pattern's palette photos look prettier than mine with the matching velcro colors, and I just used white instead, because even though I knew I had other velcro colors, I just couldn't find them. I only made sure I used matching thread then - which means changing thread in my machine constantly, and that's something to make me roll my eyes, like a lot, but of course, it's worth it to get a prettier look ;) 


Eu enganei-me e fiz a palete ao contrário, isto é, em espelho à original, mas também não faz mal de nenhum, porque sabe bem quem está habituado a elas, que tanto existem de uma forma ou outra. O material aconselhado no molde para a palete em si, é tecido polar, mas como eu não tinha em cor pastel e não estava virada a comprar mais tecido algum, usei o que tinha por casa, e acabou por ser a malha que usei aqui, para o pijama do S. Ao contrário do aconselhado, saltei a parte de juntar entretela e vá lá, tive sorte e até correu bem. 

I made a mistake and my palette is reverse to the original, it is mirrored if you prefer, but that's fine because to those who are familiar with palettes, you know they came both ways anyway. The pattern suggests the use of fleece fabric, but I didn't have that in beige and wasn't up to buy any more fabric so I got stuck with what I already had, so I used the knit I used here for S. pajamas. I didn't interface it either, as sujested, but I got lucky and it worked just fine. 


Para além de algo mais que vou juntar mais tarde, esta palete de pintor seguirá para este projeto que mencionei no último podcast (para quem viu!). E porque este molde é perfeito para quem prefere contribuir para as brincadeiras dos mais pequeninos, com mimos feitos à mão, podem adquirir não só este, mas qualquer um dos moldes da Swoodson Says com um belo desconto de 40%, usando o código "SewAllTheSofties", podem fazê-lo até ao dia 16/11, na loja Etsy ou em Swoodsonsays.com.

  3. Super giro ! Estava ansiosa para saber como ficava o teu. Na altura que falaste sobre essa paleta de pintor não tinha reparado que tinha essa possibilidade de fazer com velcro uma espécie de jogo para associação de cores. Muito gira !

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…
