June Wrap Up

Scroll down for english, please. 

Nem acredito que já passaram mais de duas semanas deste o fim de Junho. Este verão está a ser incrivelmente ocupado, e o tempo passa a voar. Nem sequer fiz ainda o meu resumo mensal, embora não o queira deixar passar. Até tenho uma colagem preparada já há algum tempo, mas o tempo e a disposição para sentar e escrever sobre o nosso mês é que não se encontraram em lado nenhum. 

I can't believe it's over two weeks after the end of June. This summer time has been incredible busy, and it's flying by so fast. I didn't even post my monthly wrap up, but I didn't want to let it pass, I even had the collage done for a while now, just couldn't find the time and mood to sit down and write about our latest month. 

Andei em limpezas profundas. Organizei o roupeiro dos miúdos e separei muitas das suas roupas. Anterei uma blusa às riscas para um casamento. Encontrei pompons a decorar um parque. Preparei refeições para congelar (salvam vidas nas semanas seguintes!). Comprei puzzles do Doraemon escolhidos pela G. e fizemos os mesmos uma e outra vez. Comi iogurte com flocos de milho, mirtilos e pintarolas. Fomos a um casamento parra o qual fiz o vestido da minha sobrinha, a saia da minha irmã e o meu vestido também (como o da minha filha, que já vos tinha mostrado aqui). Tive uma amiga holandesa a visitarnos por isso passeamos muito com ela. Organizei as minhas revistas de moldes; passei tempo de qualidade com os meus filhos e fiz uma blusa para o S. No dia 29 a minha princesa completou 4 anos. Fiz-lhe um bolo para cantar os parabéns com os amigos da escola e depois disso, fomos onde ela pediu: ao parque, comer um gelado e brincar. 

I've started with a deep cleaning. Organized the kids wardrobe and put a lot of their clothes away. I refashioned a striped shirt for a wedding. I found some pompoms decorating a playground. Prepared freezer food (life saver for the next weeks!). Bought Doraemon puzzles for G. (she picked them out) and did them over and over with her.  Ate a lot of yogurt with blueberries, cornflakes, chocolat bits. Had a friend's wedding to go to and made my niece's dress, my sister's skirt, and my own dress too (my daughter's too, which I showed you here). I had a friend from Holland staying for 3 days so we did a little sight seeing too. I've organized my pattern magazines; spent more quality time with my kids and made a shirt for S. On the 29th was my daughter's 4th birthday. I made her a cake to take to school and eat with her friends and after we went where she requested us to, the park, to have an ice cream and play.

No que diz respeito ao blog, há já muito tempo que não publicava tão pouco. As únicas partilhas foram a camisa Timmy Top que testei para a Mama Quail Patterns, os calções Morrocco Pants da Petit a Petit and Family, outro teste e por fim, fiz parte do tour de designers canadianas. com a Marc Shirt da Filles à Maman. 

When it comes to the blog, it's been a while since I had posted so little. The only things I shared was the Timmy Top button shirt I tested for Mama Quail Patterns, another test, the Morocco Shorts by Petit a Petit and Family, and finally, I was part of the Canadian designers blog tour, with the Marc Shirt from Filles à Maman. 

Amanhã seguimos com o Refashion Month. Espero que estejam a gostar. 

Tomorrow there will be more of the Refashion Month. I hope you're enjoying it.

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…
