Glimpse of Our Last Week #8

Yes, it comes a little late this week, but there is a reason. My daughter accidentaly dropped my laptop on the floor and the monitor broke. We do have an old computer in our house that I could use, but it's so slow and it's place isn't the best to sit with an eye on the kids, so I just haven't been online that often. Only quickly checked some e-mails and comments.

Anyway... this wasn't an easy week. G. is on holidays and although she spent the first days of the week away, then I had to deal with both kids at home on my own 24/7 and I just felt too tired. We started the week with S. going to the urgency room because he had some fever and they had him checked right away. They took his blood to check too but everything came back normal, we don't know what caused the fever. Sleep has been a rare thing here, so I often just lay down with him on top, that's one of the few ways he stops crying 8did I mention he cries a lot?). One of these days, as always, G. refused to nap, and then while playing, she just felt asleep on the floor. Shoes from yesterday hurt her foot, she cried and screamed like someone was killing her. The only creative thing I was able to do last week, was painting with G.... more about that in a next post.

  1. Raramente tenho comentado por aqui esta tua rubrica da semana, mas não é mesmo por não gostar ou não ler. se não fosse o blog do crer e querer eu já nem escrevia, o de tricot anda mais parado e nem tenho pegado nas agulhas recentemente e é mesmo por não me apetecer ou querer, mas falta-me acabar umas coisinha ou outra em lã, nada mais para compor o quarto e coisas do G e A. O S. está um matulão muito fofinho e pelos vistos e o que contas já gosta de uma nova posição para dormir. eles adoram estar assim em contacto conosco, a sentirem o bater do nosso coração/respiração...
    Quando os nossos mais velhos fazem algum doi doi é a maluqueira não é? parece que é o fim do mundo e a maior das dores. O meu já anda bem mas ficou com a manha do corpo e por vezes lembra-se que lhe dói o pé, ao menos as noites/tardes têm sido boas para ele dormir. Já estás em forma ;o) beijinhos nossos

    1. Deixa lá que eu para comentar umas coisas vou deixando outras para trás. é que ter as duas mãos livres ao mesmo tempo tem sido raro, e escrever posts, ou comentários longos só com uma é uma treta.
      Sim, está crescido o pimpolho, e lá vai ficando nesta posição (da foto) que ele não queria de forma alguma. Eu passava horas com a G. assim. Estávamos nas Gambelas qd ela se queixou do pé, ai mulher, veio berrando até casa, imaginas? Só se calou um pouco e dps lembrou-se outra vez... o pai estava passado com ela! Oh sim, já me sinto ótima, podia parar já de perder peso e ficar-me como estou (lol). A barriga já sei que vai levar tempo (o preto e o umbigo a voltar para dentro) cm foi da G., mas com isso vivo eu bem. hehehe

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…
