Pinterest Challenge

Volta e meia, tento recomeçar o meu próprio desafio do pinterest. Esta é uma boa altura, Setembro está ai e este é um mês de novos recomeços, com a volta à escola e tudo isso. A minha filha começa dia 21, pela primeira vez na pré. Estou um bocadinho ansiosa mas a tentar que ela não note. Mas isso à parte, como estava  a dizer, é um ótimo momento para começar o desafio novamente e tentar fazer, recrear, cozinhar, etc. - mesmo - algumas das coisas que marquei. Se conseguir manter o desafio, talvez isso me traga a vontade de costurar novamente. Ontem arranjei um vestido meu que estava demasiado longo. Nada mau. 

Every now and then I try to re-start my own pinterest challenge. This is a great time to do that again, September is here and it is a month of new starts, with back to school and all that. My daughter is going back on the 21st. It is her first time in pre-school, I'm a bit anxious about it but trying not to let her notice. Anyway, as I was saying, it is a great moment to start my own pinterest challenge again and try to actually make, recreate, cook, etc. some of the things I have pinned. If I can keep up with it, I hope it brings my sewing mood back. I did fix a dress that was too long for me yesterday. Not bad at all. 

Desafio-vos a juntarem-se a mim e fazer algumas das coisas que marcaram. Aqui o que espero conseguir fazer este mês... Não coloquei muita coisa, vou tentar manter as coisas simples. Desejem-me sorte. 
I challenge you all to join me and get your pins done. Here's what I plan to get done this month...  I didn't add a lot, just trying to keep it simple. Wish me luck.

02. easy toy storage

  1. Olá, costumo visitar o House Of Estrela, mas nunca tinha ainda comentado. Ao ler este post, hoje não posso deixar de fazê-lo. Adoro o Pinterest, e estou sempre numa luta de equilíbrio entre o lazer-sofá e o lazer-activo/produtivo. Tento implementar o que vou marcando e guardando. Aqui fica o link para um dos meus projectos que foi fazer o tapete do ponto 2 acima apresentado. Foi uma boa aposta, é prático, o meu filhote adorou e usa regularmente.

    1. Olá Chris. Obrigado pelo comentário. Eu tb gosto imenso do pinterest, mas infelizmente não consegui cumprir os objetivos deste mês. Gostei muito do tapete e do blog em geral. Agradeço o link. De certeza que visitarei mais vezes.

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…
