Refashion Month: Week Three

As I said in the last post, the third refashion was something really simple. I didn't even have a picture taken of the before. You know I tend to forget things easily, and taking pictures before cutting is one of them. 

So, this refashion was kinda started for a while. When I started making those pants from V.'s shirts for my little pie, I had cut two of my own too. One of them I did finish, but the other was laying somewhere waiting for me to remind myself about it again. 

It wasn't actually mine, it came in a large bag of used clothes from my mother in law's house, so it might have belonged to one of V.'s sisters. It was a top, just too colourful for my taste. It wasn't exactly new either, so I couldn't see any better use for it than to turn it into a sort of walking around the house or pajama pants for G., just like I did with these here, and here


And while we're here, I realised I didn't share the green pants I made her out of a t-shirt of mine. I only showed you the ones I made out of daddy's clothes. Well, not that you're losing that much, they were all made the same way... *ahah* it's just my ego that needs to show off with every little thing I create. 


Going through the photos I found one more pair:

These were made out of her dad's underwear shirt. I made two pairs with it, and since they are so light, they are perfect to wear as pajamas.

  3. I admire that you made three pairs of those comfy pants! I usually make something once, have good intentions to repeat it, but then find too many new things to do that I never come back to the same project twice! lol I want a pair of those green ones in a size that fits me. ;)

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…
