|March Wrap Up|

Scroll down for english, please!

Andei a pensar muito, e decidi escrever este blog em português também. Quando comecei aqui, não conhecia muita gente do nosso país com os mesmos interesses, por isso o inglês apenas pareceu-me bem. No entanto, o número de visitas vindas de Portugal tem vindo a aumentar, por isso, para vós, escrevo também na minha língua. 
E, WOW! Acreditam que Março já passou? Pfff não me acostumo a este passar de tempo veloz. As coisas andaram calmas pelo blogue, houve cerca de uma publicação por semana, but não significa que não tenha andado a costurar... não não não, tem sido apenas o não publicar. De qualquer forma, fica aqui uma resumo do que foi este mês, nas publicações e nas nossas fotos também. 

I thought it through, and there's something new around here. I am starting writing in my own language too. When I first started the blog, I didn't know as many people from Portugal that shared my interests, and writing in english seemed enough for me. Lately though, i get more and more traffic from my own country, which makes me happy, so I am writing for them too. In portuguese. nothing changes for my other readers except that you'll have to scroll down to read it. 
Now WOW! Can you believe March is already over? Pfff I get that feeling over and over and I just can't get used to time passing by this quickly.Things slowed down a bit in the blog, I posted like once a week (almost), but it doesn't mean I haven't been sewing... no no no, I just haven't been blogging as much. But, here's a little round up of the things that I did share last month, and some photos of our own too. 


Devido à minha participação em alguns testes a moldes neste último mês, a G. ganhou imensas roupas novas, nas fotos mostro quatro vestidos e um novo fato de banho. Fomos algumas vezes à praia e o S. adorou brincar com a areia, não lhe fez qualquer confusão. Fiz também algumas compras de tecidos e outros materiais de costura, alguns foram uma pechincha. O V. fez alguns arranjos por casa. Tentei dar comida aos pedacinhos ao S. mas ele ainda é muito preguiçoso. A G. pediu-me uma torrada e preparei-lhe o prato com morangos e ela simplesmente delirou. 

Since I was in a few pattern tests this past month, G. got a lot of new clothes, four dresses in the pictures above and a new swimsuit. We've visited the beach a few times, and S. loves to play with sand, he didn't find it weird or anything. I also did a few shopping for fabric and other supplies, and some were really good deals. V. did some repairs and improvements in our home. I tried to give finger foods to S. but he's too lazy. G. asked for a toast, I added strawberries to it and she felt like she had discovered gold.

Comecei por mostrar projetos que tinham sido feito anteriormente, a Mara Blouse que fiz em Fevereiro, e o saco de dormir, feito para doar numa iniciativa de várias bloggers. Partilhei as fotos dos dois Geraniums que fiz para duas princesas (uma delas nasceu ontem!!!) e que tinha começado durante a KCW também em Fevereiro. Houve também um sling para uma menina e as suas bonecas, uma participação numa pattern tour da Bella Sunshine Designs e para finalizar, trouxe para casa um post que fiz para o blog Sew McCool. 

I started by showing you projects that had been sewn before, the Mara Blouse I made in February, and the sleeping bag I made for charity, together with other bloggers. I shared photos of both Geraniums I started in february too, which I had started during KCW. There was also a baby doll sling, I was part of the Bella Sunshine Designs pattern tour as well. Last on the line, I brought back a guest post I wrote for Sew McCool blog.

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…
