Just thoughts

What a great group of ladies so far, don't you think? I've been enjoying this Refashion Month so much, and I hope all of you too. It's just 15 minutes past midnight as I start writing this. I just feel like writing something. I've been refashioning a little behind the scenes, not much, since my full energy isn't back yet and also, I got a pretty cold. So, today I still don't have anything from me to show you, be sure to come back tomorrow and I will. 

I'm happy though, Project Run & Play is around to corner to start (this monday!!) and I was able to sew something for the sew along. I had planned 3 pieces, but, really? What was I thinking? I can barely stand for half an hour, how could I be able to sew three pieces? Especially when I've been using my little moments of energy and good mood to test a pattern... 

Yeah, I tested the Small Fry Skinny Jeans for Laura at Titchy Threads, I only have very good things to say about Laura's patterns. It is available now, so if you're planning to buy it, just click the pattern's link above. I had sewn the free 2T Small Fry Skinny jeans before and totally loved but this time I was assigned a slightly different version and again, I loved making it. It is a little time consuming but so worth it. I am planning to share the test piece soon, for the 3rd week sew along of PR&P, so just wait a few days to see it. 

I've also refashioned 2 onesies for G. which I will share later, there's more to go in the same way, I refashioned a cardigan (yes, you'll have to wait for this one too) and most recently - I just finished so I am all excited about it! - I've turned a pair or red velvet pants into something adorable to my daughter. Tomorrow we're taking some photos so I can show it to all of you. 

So this morning I was feeling sad, I felt like, though I am hosting a refashioning series, I had nothing to share myself. But see, everytime I host the series, I make a self challenge of achieving at least 4 pieces refashioned. If you followed what I just wrote above, I am counting 5 pieces already (the test piece was refashioned too), and it's not half month gone yet... so, why was I frustrated about? I haven't blogged about it, that's for sure, but I will soon, and I'm over what I expected from me, so I should be happy, right? Come back tomorrow and check my latest love piece. 

There's a lot of sewing for this week and the next ones, so a lot to show and share will be at its time too.

  1. I'm so excited that you're sewing along with PR&P!! I can't wait to see what you refashion! This series is a great thing too! I know I've felt discouraged with my blogging, but I know you inspire and reach more people then you know!

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…
