The Heartie Nonô

Scroll down for english, please. 

Tenho um especial carinho por umas bonequinhas de uma coleção, chamada The Hearties. Tenho-lhes um especial carinho porque foram uma criação minha, porque já fiz tantas, porque cada vez que tocava numa delas tentava melhorar um ou outro pormenor. Comparem as primeiras às últimas e verão. Há algum tempo que não fazia nenhuma, mas recentemente lembrei-me delas novamente. Entusiasmei-me e fiz uma nova bonequinha. Desta vez com a filhota de uma amiga que mora longe em mente. A bebé, chama-se Leonor, por isso, a sua The Heartie ficou Nonô. 

I especially care about this collection of dolls called The Hearties. And I do so because they are my own creation, and because I've made so many of them by now, and each and everytime I made one I would try to improve one or two details. Just compare the first ones to the latests and you'll see. It's been a while since I last made any, but I thought of them recently again. I got thrilled and made a new one. This time I had my friend's baby in mind, her name is Leonor, so I named her doll Nonô. 

Ao fazer a Nonô, adicionei mais uns ajustes na boneca. Para começar, a boca, em vez de desenhada, desta vez, foi bordada. Os olhos, tal como a boca, em vez de pintados, desta vez aparecem com aplicações em feltro, e ainda na cara, esta The Heartie traz uma novidade: ganhou nariz. O corpo continua igual. A última mudança a referir passa pela forma de fechar as mãos da boneca. Substituí o velcro por molas de pressão Kam. 

While making Nonô, I made a few more changes. To start, instead of a drawing the mouth, it was embroidered. The eyes, as well as the mouth, weren't drawn this time, instead, they were made out of felt pieces sewn to the face. And to keep on the face, this new the Heartie has another little detail introduced to it, it now has a little embroidered nose. The body was kept the same. The last change I made to it, is about the closing of the hands. I changed the velcro for a Kam snap

E a grande novidade, é que decidi comercializar o molde das mesmas em PDF. Comecei a tratar disso em Dezembro, mas infelizmente, devido a problemas técnicos, o projeto ficou de lado até agora. Porém, vou recomeçar a trabalhar nele, e espero ter em Fevereiro o molde pronto a enviar para alguns testes, por isso se alguém estiver interessado que fique atento, haverá um "tester call" dentro de alguns dias. 

And the big news is, I decided to sell the pattern in PDF. I started taking care of that in December, but unfortunately, due to some technical issues, the project was left aside until now. I will get back to it now and I hope I'll have it ready to test in February, so, if anyone is interested, be aware, there will be a tester call anytime soon.

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…
