Doll Cloth Diapers

Scroll down for english. 

Uma das coisas que quero fazer este ano, é costurar mais items para as brincadeiras do faz de conta, dos meus filhos. Já tenho feito alguns, mas há muitos outros que têm ficado em lista de espera. Este ano, ainda não me estreei nessas lides, porém, tenho para vos mostras umas fraldas de pano para bonecos que fiz para a minha G. há praticamente um ano, mas que nunca cheguei a partilhar. Ao arrumar algumas pastas encontrei as fotos. 

One of the things I want to make this is, is sewing more items for my kids play pretend. I have made a few before, but so many others have been kept in the wish to do list. I haven't started on this yet, instead, I have some baby doll cloth diapers I made for G. about a year ago, which never made it to the blog. As I was organizing some folders I found these photos. 

Este foi um daqueles projetos não planeados, costurados na hora que nos lembramos de o fazer. Estávamos ambas a brincar juntas, e ela queria colocar e tirar as fraldas a dois dos nenucos dela, mas só tinha para um deles. Levantei-me, peguei em retalhos que ela escolheu e mesmo sem molde, só colocando as existentes por cima dos dois tecidos que queria usar, cortei a forma das fraldas, e adicionei margem para costura à volta, mesmo a olho. Cortei mais dois iguais em branco para a parte interior de cada uma das fraldas.

This was one of those unplanned projects, sewed as I thought about them. We were both playing together, and she wanted to put diapers on two of her baby dolls, so she kept putting it on and off from both because she only had one. I got up, grabbed some scraps she picked and using the existing one on top of the scraps, creating a pattern, I just added eye measured seam allowances, and cut. I used two more pieces in white for the lining. 

Num instantinho estavam as duas fraldas costuradas, foi só adicionar o velcro e estavam prontas para brincar. Ela tem mais um par, se recordo bem, foi o primeiro que fiz quando ainda não tínhamos nenhum para molde, e que não encontrámos. São um pouco maiores. Para completar, cortei alguns quadrados no tecido branco, chuleei à volta e voilá: toalhitas para bonecos. 

I had two cloth diapers sewn in a blink, I just had to add the velcro to it and they were ready for play. She has another one, if I am not wrong, it was the first one I made when we still didn't have any to use as pattern, which we couldn't find. They are slightly bigger. To finish off, I just cut a few squares from the white fabric, finished with a zigzag stitch and voilá: doll wipes. 


  1. Oh que giro, assim aproveitam para brincar e aprendem mais ou menos como se faz aos bebés ;o) Coisas pequenas são tão fofas e esses nenuncas ao menos nunca lhes deixa de servir a roupa e as fraldas LOL

  2. Dressing dolls is lots of fun for kids. Bet your daughter thought you were just the best that day.

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…

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…
