New Bubble shorts for her

Scroll down for english, please! 

Nem o quero dizer em voz alta, mas parece que a minha motivação para costurar está mesmo a voltar. Há cerca de um mês achei que devia finalmente costurar duas peças de roupa para mim. Escolhi os tecidos e comecei. Uma dessas peças eram uns calções tipo saia, e como me sobrou tecido pensei em fazer uns a combinar para a minha boneca, o tecido foi mesmo à conta. Aliás, ainda faltou para a cintura, mas usei um retalho preto, do mesmo tecido que usei no forro destes. 

I don't even want to say it outloud, but I believe my sewing mood is really coming back. About a month ago I started two pieces for myself. One of them is a pair of skirtlike shorts, and since I had some fabric left I thought it'd be a good idea to sew a matching one for my daughter. Fabric was just enough. Actually, I needed have enough for the waistband, but I used the same black fabric I used for the lining. 

O molde "Bubble Shorts" da Marta (Do Guincho), é mesmo o que eu pretendia fazer. Usei-o há um par de anos aqui, e aqui e nunca mais o costurei. Gostei imenso daqueles primeiros que fiz em veludo preto, até doeu a alma quando deixaram de servir, felizmente estes últimos não lhes ficam nada atrás. A miúda então adorou, embora diga que é uma saia, mesmo que eu lhe explique que "parece, mas não é!". Ela vai e insiste que é uma saia e que prefere que seja uma saia. Como queiras, miúda! Ficas gira, gira de qualquer forma!!! Ah, fiz-lhe o tamanho 6 e ficou no ponto. 

Marta's Bubble Shorts pattern (Do Guincho) was right what I was planning to do. I used it a couple of years ago here and here and I've never made them again. I liked those first black velvet ones I made so much, it even hurt when she grew them over, luckily these new ones aren't any less loved. She adored them, although she insist in saying it's a skirt not shorts. No matter how many times I tell her otherwise. Whatever kid! You look so so cute anyway!! Oh, I made her size 6 and it fits perfectly. 

O tecido foi-me oferecido pela Sara há cerca de um ano, numa troca que algumas de nós fizemos. Adoro-o! O toque é tão macio e tem um cair tão bonito. Pena que não sobrou mais, é mesmo a minha cara. A minha filha está constantemente a apontar o fato de eu me vestir tanto de preto e cores mais sóbrias, e o engraçado é que depois deste dia me pede constantemente para se vestir "toda de preto" porque gostou muito. Quem saí aos seus... 

This fabric was a gift from Sara, from nearly a year ago, as part of an exchange some of us did. I love it! It is so soft to the touch and drapes so beautifully. Too bad I got nothing left of it, it screams me all over. My daughter is constantly pointing the fact that I wear black and other dark colors so often, and the funny thing is that after this day, she's been constantly asking to dress "all black" because she liked to so much. It's in her blood... 

Talvez também reconheçam o Kimono que ela veste aqui uma vez que já foi publicado aqui no blog também. Ela cresceu um pouco desde então, mas o kimono continua a fazer parte do seu guarda roupa. Obviamente não foi só ela que adorou o look, eu também. E o termos tirado estas fotos numa visita a casa da avó calhou bem, pois quando está por lá a felicidade é tanta que até nas fotos transcende. 

You may also recognize the Kimono she's wearing and you might have seen it here on the blog before. She grew a little since then, but the kimono is still part of her wardrobe. Obviously it wasn't only her to love this look, I did it too. Taking these photos while visiting grandma was a bonus, since she is all happiness when she's there.

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…

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…
