Glimpse of our last week #9

Yep! It comes a little too late this week again. Why? Well, my laptop went to the store to be fixed a week ago and they told me I would have it back the next day. Apparently the monitor they were sent to replace mine wasn't the right one, and because it was a holiday on friday, I only got it back yesterday! How I missed it!!!


This week went a little better than the last one. My sister borrowed me a monitor to check if my laptop was ok apart from the broken monitor. On the same day, we got a new tap in the kitchen and some new shelves in the kids closet. My daughter made art with some toys... hehehe... she said it was a birthday cake for me (although it isn't my birthday so soon). I drew for her and she painted and made some collages. She loved it by the way. Daddy did G.'s nails (hands and feet - lol). We went to the park, did I mention she loves the swings?! S. had good and bad days, in the bad days the sling was my best friend to keep him calm. G. enjoyed some time in the beach with my sister and her kids, when I joined them later that day, S. was able to be there for the first time too (of course he was not on the sand or sea, but still...).

Há sempre muito que fazer e passear/brincar também ;o) O papá tem jeitinho para as pinturas LOL Quando tiveres um tempinho para as costuras não te esqueças do meu sling, seja lá qual for o padrão desde que tenha azul eheheh e depois mostras essas fotos com o teu S no sling e aiiii que só quero um para mim eheh O G não está muito fã de baloiços que não seja o de casa mesmo esse que mostras na foto ele faz um choro e nem tira os olhos do chão... desde a queda que magoou o pé anda assim... mas pronto era dos baloiços sem barras de protecção...

    1. hahaha... pois tem, foi a primeira vez e estava reticente mas lá fez a vontade à piolha! Tempo para as costuras tem sido nulo, é que o S. chora que se farta e depois quando dorme é a mana que me requisita... acho que só quando ela voltar para a escolinha agora em Setembro. O S. não gosta tanto do sling como a G. nem sempre o consigo acalmar lá, e as minhas costas tb têm reclamado mais e ele ainda nem pesa tanto assim... A G. tem uma adoração por baloiços, ando em qualquer um e já nem precisa de nós para empurrar, quando lhe disse q estava quase a voltar para a escola a primeira coisa que disse foi que ia andar nos baloiços de lá. beijinhos

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…
