Nursing in purple

I have been making it bit by bit. The first thing I finished was the protectors for my baby's bed. I first thought of buying it and avoid the whole lot of work, since she was a newborn when I started them, and I had no time at all for sewing then. But, I couldn't find what I wanted, or it was way too expensive for my taste.
I decided I would make it then. And I did, bit by bit as I mentioned before.

I used a tutorial from a magazine I had, full of baby items. But of course, I altered it a little. I only made two pieces, and it was a 4 pieces one in the original.

Here's how they looked like when I finished them. The blanked didn't match at all, so I had to make a new one, of course. It took me another couple of months until I had it done. 
The bigger doll on the bed, was also made by me. It holds her diapers in her room right now. I will surely make a post about it someday. 
For the blanket I wanted to use tthe same pattern but I didn't want the squared to be so small, so I had to adjust the size of them for the next project. 
Here it is:
Looks way better now, doesn't it?

All I needed to have it all done, was a little matching pillow. Once again I had to adjust the size of my squares. I was much easier this time, and much faster to finish this project. So, I guess on the 7th of this month, I had finally finish all the things I needed for G.'s bed. 
And I just love it. She's now sleeping in her own bedroom, since the beginning of this month, and her bedroom has became my very favourite room in the house. 

 Lovely, isn't it?
The little witches were also stitched by me. More about it later. I also, painted the frames to match the room's colours. They were originally white. Her bed was originally brown, and she got it from my sister's kids. Before we brought it homw, my sister painted it the way you see it, also to match.

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…
