Surprise Refashion Week |Jan. 19-23|

I've been keeping a secret! I skipped the January (Winter for me) edition of the Refashion Month, however, something else has been on the works: a special edition Refashion Week. What's so special about it? It is a special edition with Portuguese Sewing Bloggers only. 2014 was a great blog year for me. I was always starving to find friends from my own country, that were ineterested in the same things that I was. Bit by bit, I discovered the blogs from each of the ladies that will be part of this edition of the series (and a few more). I challenged them to refashion and they have accepted to do it. I can't wait to share them with you. So, starting monday through friday, visit us for a lot of refashioning inspiration. 

Maybe you already know them...


  1. Sounds great, I'm deginitely going to follow this. I know 6 of these blogs but I have to say I didn' t know they all come from Portugal, you've got very talented ladies there :)

    1. You will love all the other ladies too. And yes, I am so proud of the ladies in my country!!! =D thank you!

  2. You'll be introducing me to a whole set of new bloggers, Magda. Looking forward to the refashions.

  3. Que bom! Sou nova nestas andanças da costura, mas tenho começado aos poucos a descobrir os blogues portugueses e ainda bem... Tenho visto coisas fantásticas! Vou acompanhar. De certeza, que vai-me dar muita inspiração.

    1. Obrigado Diana! Levei anos a sentir-me "sozinha" nestas andanças, mas fui aos poucos descobrindo estas meninas e o mundo ficou mais feliz! Espero que te inspires muito e se publicares alguma refashion partilha o link connosco. =D

  4. This is going to be fun! As always...

  5. Olá, cheguei aqui através do " Saidos da Concha" e gostei muito de conhecer. Confesso que também me sentia sozinha :) Agora vou continuar a acompanhar ... :)

  6. I'm so happy to be among these talented ladies!
    Magda, you're the Queen of Refashion and such an inspiration :)
    Obrigada pela ideia/partilha!

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…
