Wild Things Baby Shoes |the Fox|

Scroll down for english, please! 

Não sei se ainda alguém será capaz de se lembrar deste post sobre uns sapatinhos panda que fiz para oferecer à bebé de uns amigos. Alguém?! Pois bem, logo nesse post, menciono que também fiz um gato e uma raposa, mas nunca mais voltei a pegar neles, isto, até que se aproximou este último Natal e enquanto pensava em prendas para o meu sobrinho mais novo, lembrei-me que tinha estes dois pares por terminar. 

I don't know if anyone is able to remember this post about some baby panda shoes I made for a friends baby? Anyone?! Well, right back then, I mencioned I made three pairs of them, a cat and a fox too, but I haven't touch them again until this latest Christmas, when I was trying to find a gift for my youngest nephew, and remember I had these two unfinished. 

Acabei por lhe oferecer apenas um, este da raposinha, ao contrário do que planeava, mas com tudo o que Dezembro trouxe com ele, acabar este já foi uma sorte quanto mais terminar o outro par também. As horas livres foram todas contabilizadas. Os tecidos que usei para os fazer foram apenas pequenos retalhos que já tinha por casa, no futuro, se fizer outros gostava de experimentar com outro tipo de tecido para a sola, a napa tornou-se difícil de trabalhar numa peça tão pequena. 

Although I had plans to finish both pairs, I ended up finishing the fox pair only, with everything December brought with it all of our free time was counted. The fabrics I used were all small scraps I already had around, if I make another one in the future, I'd like to try a different fabric for the soles because leather turned out a little hard to work with in such a tiny piece. 

O molde dos sapatos, é o Wild Things Baby Shoes da Twig + Tale e são a coisa mais amorosa que já fiz no que toca a sapatos para pés pequeninos (e sim, já fiz alguns, embora não estejam todos neste blog). Vejam bem os detalhes: os olhos e o nariz do animal são bordados, e o facto de não terem boca dá-lhes aquele ar amoroso, não concordam? 

The pattern for the shoes is the Wild Things Baby Shoes by Twig + Tale and they are the sweetest things I have made when it comes to little feet shoes (and yes, I've made my share already although they aren't all on the blog). Just look at the details: the eyes and nose of the animal are embroidered, and having no mouth gives it such a cute look, don't you agree? 

Agora só me falta mesmo acabar o 3º par que ainda está encostado à espera e arranjar outro bebé a quem o dar. Podia dar ao meu sobrinho também, mas prefiro encontrar outro par de pequeninos para aquecer, e deixar outras coisas diferentes para o pequenino. Aquela orelhinha teimosa ali acima dobrou por estarem guardados tanto tempo e não houve forma de a endireitar. Não que eu tenha tentado muito, até lhe acho piada. 

Now I only need to finish the third pair and find another baby to gift it to. I could give it to my nephew as well, but I rather find another pair of little feet to warm with this, and leave other different pieces for him. That little stubborn ear above bended while it was kept away and there was no way to get it right. Not that I tried too hard anyway, I finf it kinda cute.

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…
