Hoje é um dia especial. A nossa querida Sara, de Made by Sara celebra hoje o seu aniversário, e juntamente com algumas amigas, quisemos fazer-lhe também a ela uma grande surpresa. Porque sim, porque ela merece e porque sabe tão bem fazer alguém feliz. A Sara, para quem ainda não conhece (haverá ainda alguém?), é mãe a tempo inteiro de 3 lindas crianças, e uma excelente costureira. Uma pessoa informada, curiosa e muito generosa, sempre disposta a ajudar quem precise dela. Costura a um ritmo alucinante e cria coisas maravilhosas e acima de tudo super originais. 

Today is a special day. Our dear Sara, from  Made by Sara celebrates her birthday today, and together with a few friends, we wanted to make her a little surprise. Just because, she deserves it and because it feels good to make someone else happy. Sara, for those who don't know her yet (is still anyone yet who doesn't?), it´s a stay at home mom of 3 lovely children, and an excellent seamstress. She's a well informed person, curious and very generous too, always ready to help whoever needs her. She sews at an amazing pace and she makes wonderful and above all, super original things. 



Eu descobri o blog da Sara através da minha série Refashion Month*, como podem até ver num comentário neste post. Na altura, lembro-me que o blog dela não era tão mexido como agora, e tão pouco se centrava tanto em costuras. No entanto, tem sido delicioso ver como tem crescido, e como a própria Sara se tem dedicado a esta paixão que é a costura, e que partilhamos. Gosto do seu bom gosto em termos de escolhas de tecidos, mas também gosto muito do seu olhar sobre alguns moldes, que vistos à partida não daria nada por eles. A sua capacidade de os reinventar agrada-me muito. A Sara tem demasiadas coisas excelentes para escolher apenas algumas preferidas. Mas vou mencionar uma em particular, que me inspirou a fazer o vestido do último aniversário da minha filha. É o vestido anita ou ice cream que fez para a sua pequenita. Desde a primeira vez que o vi, que adorei o vestido e fiquei com ele na memória, à espera de uma oportunidade para fazer algo semelhante. E foi em Junho que a oportunidade chegou. Publicarei mais tarde sobre o meu vestido. 

* A Sara participou na série mais tarde, aquiaqui e aqui

I've discovered Sara's blog through Refashion Month*, the series I host,as portuguese readers can check in a comment in this post. Back then I remember her blog wasn't as busy as it is right now, and it wasn't as centered in sewing as it is nowadays. Despite all that, it has been delicious to see how it has been growing, and as Sara herself has dedicated to this sewing passion that we both share. I like her great taste in fabric choices, but also her eye through patterns, some of which I would just pass blank if it wasn't for her capability to reinvent them, that is something I love. Sara has made too many gorgeous things to just pick a few favourite, but there's one I have to mention, because it isnpired me to make my daughter's last birthday dress. It is the Ice Cream dress she made for her youngest. Since I first saw it, I loved it and kept it in mind, waiting for an oportunity to make something similar. And that day came back in June. I will blog about it later. 

* Sara was later part of the series too, herehere e here.



Agora, especialmente a ti Sara: Antes de mais nada, muitos parabéns! Espero que tenhas gostado da nossa surpresa. Obrigado por seres quem/como és. Obrigado por tudo o que tens partilhado connosco, principalmente o teu vasto conhecimento e atenção. Admiro-te muito e orgulho-me de poder chamar-te de amiga. Um beijinho enorme cheio de carinho. Lá para quarta feira espreita a caixa do correio! ;) 

above is a special message for Sara, sorry for not translating!

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…
