Easter Bunny

Scroll down for english!

A Páscoa já está aqui! Se precisarem de um projeto de última hora, aqui está um também. Este ano, no infantário da G. foi-nos pedido que fizessemos um coelhinho da Páscoa. O ano passado fizemos um ovo, e eu não fiquei muito feliz com a nossa criação de última hora. Este ano correu melhor, eu já tinha uma ideia do que queria e o sr. google ajudou-me a concretizá-la. Comprei os materiais* que me faltavam e estava pronta a seguir.

Easter is here! if you need a quick, last minute craft, here it is too. This year, G.'s daycare teachers asked us to make a bunny for homework. Last year we had to make an Easter egg and I wasn't really happy with our last minute creation. This year went better, I already had an idea of what I wanted and mr. google just helped me achieving it. I bought the supplies* I didn't have at home, and was ready to go. 

Não tirei fotos do processo. Na altura nem me lembrei, nem tinha tempo, já que o coelhinho tinha que ser entregue na manhã seguinte (e foi feito à noite). Por isso, experimentei fazer algo novo aqui no blog. Um passo a passo com ilustrações feitas por mim... Já me dirão de vossa justiça e se ficou capaz ou não.

I didn't take photos through the process. At the time I didn't even remember to, nor did I have the time since it should be delivered the next morning, (and I crafted it in the evening). Because of that, I am trying something new here in the blog. A tutorial with illustrations drawn by me... You will tell me if they are ok and if they're good or not. 

*1&2. 2 bolas de esferovite de tamanhos diferentes
3: uma base de esferovite
4. lã
5. palitos
6. olhos de plástico
7. pedaço de feltro branco
8. pedaço de feltro rosa
9. fita
10. collants velhos

11. caixa de cartão
12. arame muito fino

I used: 
*1&2. 2 sizes styrofoam balls
3: styrofoam base
4. woolen thread
5. toothpicks
6. plastic eyes
7. white piece of felt
8. pink piece of felt
9. ribbon
10. old tights

11.. cardbox  12. very thin wire

Antes de começar cortar as formas em feltro. Usar o branco para cortar os dentes, e para cortar rectângulo arredondado para a barriga.
1. cortar um pé da meia 2.coser a base 3. enfiar a bola maior, apertar com uma linha para fechar, enfiar a bola mais pequena, voltar a apertar com uma linha para fechar 4. cortar duas orelhas na perna que sobra da meia 5. passar arame à volta de cada orelha para moldar 6. colar os olhos em 1º lugar 7. depois os dentes 8. e o nariz sobrepondo os dentes (colar a barriga do coelho também - sem imagem) 9.cortar um circulo no cartão (mais pequeno que a bola menor), no interior desenhar outro circulo mais pequeno e cortar formando um buraco - cortar outro igual 10. enrolar a lã toda a à volta do cartão 11. abrir ligeiramente para ver o cartão 12. enfiar a ponta da tesoura para separar os dois cartões e cortar tudo à volta 13. passar uma linha/lã 14. dar a volta com a linha e atar firmemente 15. retirar o cartão e o pompom está feito 16. colar o pompom na parte de trás da bola grande 17. enfiar quatro palitos na base e na parte de baixo do coelho para que se mantenha de pé, e pronto, já está!

Before you start, cut you felt shapes. Use the white for the teeth and cut also a circular rectangle shape for the belly. 
1. cut a tight foot 2. sew the base 3. pass the bigger ball through, tight a thread around it to close it, pass the smaller ball through and close again 4. cut the ears shapes from the rest of the tight leg 5. use a thin wire all around the ears to give it shape 6. glue the eyes first 7. then the teeth 8. and finally the nose (glue the belly too - no images) 9. cut a small circle in the cardbox (smaller then the head ball), and cut another circle hole in the middle - make it two. 10. wrap the wool thread around the cardbox 11. open a little through the thread in order to be able to see your cardbox underneath 12. get your scissors tip into both cardbox circles and cut the thread all around 13. pass a thread through the one you've cutted 14. get it all around and tight strongly 15. take the cardbox out and your pompom is ready 16. glue the pompom into the back of the bigger ball 17. stick the 4 tooth through the base and the rabbit bottom so it can stand, and you're done!

P.S. - mete um laço no teu coelho!
P.S. - add a ribbon to your rabbit!


  1. Tão giro, Magda! Deve ter sido um sucesso. E as instruções estão óptimas! Graficamente apelativas e claras.

    1. Obrigado Diana. Aquele infantário é cheio de gente dotada, nem imaginas alguns dos trabalhos que alguns pais entregam sempre. 5 estrelas! Por isso, o nosso não foi dos mais fraquinhos mas tb não se destacou muito. Obrigado pelo feedback das instruções, foi a 1ª vez que experimentei fazer algo assim.

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…
