Walker Jeans by Momma Quail Patterns

Scroll down for english, please. 

Na passada segunda feira, a Momma Quail Patterns, lançou o seu último molde, Walker Jeans, que eu tive o prazer de testar... Sim, sim, quero reduzir os testes aos moldes e tal e coiso, mas a verdade é que até me tenho portado bem. Mas o que hei-de eu fazer? Sempre que vejo os tester calls da Amy, lá vou eu, não lhes consigo virar costas. E desta vez, foi o desenho destas calças, na opção que acabei por fazer que me chamou a atenção. O molde vem com duas opção de corte, a primeira a calça direita e a segunda ligeiramente afunilada nos joelhos, e depois novamente mais larga em baixo, tipo boca de sino, mas pouco acentuado. Claro que há também a opção de fazer calções e ainda incluí linhas de corte para ajustar o comprimento - já que é mais para o longo, dando espaço para os períodos de crescimento veloz a que os nossos pequenos estão sujeitos. No caso do meu pequenino, que é curto de perna, os moldes da Amy são mesmo longos, mas de resto assentam na perfeição. Este molde, como a maioria dos moldes desta designer, é mais direcionado para os meninos, embora também inclua nas instruções, a versão menina para a aplicação do fecho e braguilha. Começa no tamanho 12M e vai até ao tamanho 14. O meu miúdo ficou com um ar mesmo cool. Infelizmente estava demasiado frio e não lhe tirei o casaco, mas por baixo vestia esta camisola que lhe fiz no ano passado (e sim, ainda serve). Até o pai estava super orgulhoso, uma vez que ambas as peças, foram recicladas e feitas a partir de roupas do pai. O miúdo também parece ter aprovado as calças novas, correu, pulou, saltou, rebolou na areia, trepou e nunca se queixou.

Last monday, Momma Quail Patterns had released her lattest pattern, the Walker Jeans... Yes, yes, I want to reduce the number of pattern tests and all that, but the truth's that I've been behaving quite well. What I can do though? Everytime I come across one of Amy's tests, there I go, I just can't turn my back to it. This time, I was drawn by the bootleg option of these jeans. The pattern comes with two options, the first one is a straight leg and then the bootleg, there's also the possibility of making shorts versions too, including cutting lines to adjust height - the pattern height is a bit long, adding room to grow, good for our always growing fast kids. In the case of my little one, Amy's patterns are often too long because he's quite short legged, but other than that, the pattern fits perfectly elsewhere. This pattern, as most patterns from the designer, are meant for boys, even though, this includes girl fly and zipper directions/instructions. It starts at 12M size and goes up to size14. My little boy looks really cool in his jeans. Unfortunately it was too cold and I didn't take his hoodie off for the photos, but he was wearing this shirt I made him last year (and yes, still fits). Even dad was feeling all proud, since both pieces I made, were refashioned from his own clothes. The boy seemed to approved his new jeans as well, he ran, jumped, rolled in the sand, climbed and never complained. 


  1. Wow! Those tiny jeans turned out amazing! Great job!

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…

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…
