Aproveitem que está com desconto até quarta e vejam o resto dos seus moldes. Dela, testei também o Spring Showers Jacket, podem ler o que escrevi sobre ele na altura aqui.

Who doesn't know  E&E Patterns by Heidi, yet? To those who said no, I would recommend you to visit her shop, today, you will find a new pattern there, which I have tested and am sharing with you. Go there and use the discount available until next wednesday, and since you're there don't forget to check her other patterns. I have also tested her Spring Showers Jacket, and you can read what I wrote about it here

Mas voltemos ao dia de hoje, em que a Heidi lança o molde Mori Dress & Top... Que é simplesmente lindo. Quando vi este tester call, não consegui mesmo resistir. Várias vezes antes tentei a minha sorte a testar para ela, mas tirando o casaco, nunca consegui ir a tempo, pois ela costuma ter as inscrições abertas por muito pouco tempo e a concorrência é sempre mais que muita. Mas fui uma das sortudas, e depois de costurar a peça ainda me senti mais feliz por ter sido escolhida. No grupo de teste, a opinião das mães e das filhas foi unânime; tanto os vestidos como os tops, fizeram as delicias de todas. As meninas não os queriam despir, e eu, a cada versão que via aparecer achava sempre que aquela é que era a minha preferida.

Let's get back to today, the day Heidi is launching her Mori Dress & Top pattern... It is simply beautiful. When I saw this tester call, I just couldn't resist. A lot of times I tried my luck testing for her, but apart from the jacket, I wasn't able to apply on time, since her calls are on for a short time and there's lots of people applying. But I was one of the lucky ones this time and after sewing my piece, I was even happier about being a tester on this one. The opinions were the same in the testing group, moms and daughter, tops or dresses everyone loved them. The little girls wouldn't take it off, and I, at each new one I saw, thought it to be my fave. 

O que se destaca neste molde, são os folhos forrados, costurados nas costuras na linha princesa na frente e trás do corpo da peça, que é, ele também forrado. Agora mais especificamente falando do meu top, usei um tecido de algodão fino e suave que recebi da Sara, tanto para o exterior, tanto para o forro. Fiz o tamanho 4 para a minha princesa e ficou mesmo no ponto. Como estava muito frio, experimentámos vestir uma camisola de gola por baixo - porque depois de o experimentar para eu ver se lhe caia bem, quis porque quis vestir o top nesse dia, e não adiantou de muito eu lhe dizer que era para o verão. Gostámos, e assim se dá mais uso ao top, em vez de esperar que os dias quentes voltem. E pronto, se quiserem ver as versões teste do grupo, ou pelo menos algumas, visitem o blog da Heidi, aqui

I think the great thing about this pattern, are the lined flounces, attached on princess seamson front and back bodice, also lined. Now specifically talking about mine, I used a soft and think cotton fabric I got from Sara, for main and linning. I made size 4 for my princess and it was spot on. Since it was too cold we tried to layer it with a turtle neck - after trying it on her for fit, she insisted in wearing it that day, and I wasn't lucky trying to change her mind by telling her it was meant for summer. We liked it, and this way we can use it more often, instead of waiting for the warm days. And that's it, if you want to see tester photos, at least some of them, visit Heidi's blog 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…
