Alguém se perguntou por ai o que faz um pijama no meio das minhas costuras para o regresso à escola? Eu conto-vos. Todos os anos a creche e pré dos meus miúdos participou do Dia do Pijama, e todos os anos tenho observado alguns pais com faniquinhos porque a criancinha tem de ter um pijama novo a estrear para o evento. 

Wondering why there is a pajama in my Back to School post? I'll tell you all about it. Every year pre-school kids have this day at school where they take their pajamas, blanket and whatever they usually use to sleep. This is part of a national charity event, but I won't go into details. I just wanted to point that, every year parents go crazy 'cuz most feel like their kids need to take a brand new pajamas. 

Nunca senti tal necessidade, os meus filhos levaram sempre os pijamas que já tinham, pois nunca consegui perceber porque haveria eu de comprar um novo só para aquele dia. No entanto este ano, foi-me dada esta oportunidade de pensar e planear com antecedência, e já que queria costurar algo para ele também mas já me sentia assoberbada com a quantidade de roupa que já tem, fazer-lhe um pijama novo pareceu-me justo, e é por isso que pela primeira vez, um dos meus miúdos também terá um pijama a estrear (ou não!) no "Dia do Pijama". 

I never bored, my kids would take the ones they usually had, I didn't see why I'd have to buy a brand new one for for that day. This year though, since given the chance to actually sit to think and plan ahead, and since I did want to sew him something too but also feel overwhelmed with the number of garment pieces he already has, making him a pajama seemed pretty fair to me, and that's why one of my kids will have a brand new (or not!) pajama for "Pajama's day". 

O molde que usei, não só vem em tamanho criança, como também vem no tamanho adulto (homem e mulher), no total de 29 números. Na minha mente já nos imagino aos quatro em pijamas com pés a combinar, ao lado de uma lareira numa qualquer véspera de Natal... só que... nããã... não creio que aconteça. Mas olhem que um pijaminha destes me daria imenso jeito... os vossos pés também viram gelo no inverno? arghhh Ah, a quem interesse, o molde vem em inglês e francês. 

This pattern I used, not only comes in children sizes but also in adult (men and women) sizes, it's a total of 29 sizes we're talking about. In my mind I picture us all wearing coordinating footed pajamas by the fireplace on a Christmas Eve... but... well yeah... I don't think that will happen. I could use a footed pajamas anytime soon though... do your feet also freeze no matter what like mine do in winter? Arghhhhh Oh, the pattern comes in english and french, for your information. 

Adoro o tecido. Só comprei um metro e adorava ter mais, já que a miúda também queria um igual depois de ver o irmão com o dele. Mas já não consegui arranjar mais, com o que me sobrou fiz um body para o meu sobrinho que nasce agora em Outubro. Não o mostrei ainda porque falta fazer as bainhas das mangas... só isso... há semanas... enfim... 

I love the fabric. I only bought one meter of it and I would love to have more because my daughter said she wanted one too after seeing her little brother's pajamas. Unfortunately it wasn't possible for me to get anymore and what I had left was too little, just enough to make my nephew (to be born in October) a tiny onesie. I haven't shared it yet on the blog cuz I still need to hem the sleeves... just that... for weeks now... oh well..

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 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…
