January Wrap Up

Scroll down for english, please.

Em Janeiro, passeámos muito na verdade, agora que olho para as fotos. Fomos à Espanha para ver o desfile dos reis magos, onde os miúdos juntaram sacos de rebuçados. Visitámos vários parques, fomos a jardins, até à praia, na vantagem dos dias de sol. Costurei principalmente para o S. nuns testes a moldes que fiz. Acabei umas calças para ele, só porque sim também, e com um retalhinho desse tecido fiz uma mini carteira para as minhas canetas. Acabei a mala da Barbie para ela. Comprei uns fazedores de pompons e diverti-me a brincar com eles. Comprei umas botas novas. Fiz os meus melhores queques salgados de sempre. Fiz hambúrgueres caseiras muito saudáveis e saborosas. Tal como no ano passado, tirámos um dia em família para passear até Portimão, e aproveitar os saldos para comprar aquelas coisas que não costumo costurar para os miúdos, ou peças para o V. Fiz um novo organizador de acessórios do cabelo para o quarto de banho, e toalhas turbante para as meninas cá de casa. Ela brincou muito com os meus mini pompons. Comprei dois tecidos novos e prometi que me ia controlar mais.

Now that I look at our photos, I realised we did a lot of touring around. We went to Spain for the Reyes Magos parade, where kids got a lot of sweets. We visited several different parks, gardens and the beach, taking advantage of our sunny days. I sewed mainly for S. doing some patterns tests. I finished a pair of pants for him, just because I wanted to and with a small scrap from the same fabric I made a small pencil case for my planner. I finished the Barbie suitcase for my daughter. I bought some pompom makers and have been playing around with them. I bought myself a new pair of boots. I made my best ever salty muffins . I made healthy and tasty homemade hamburgers. Just like last year, we did a family tour to Portimão, and enjoy the sales, buying things I don't usually sew for the kids, and some pieces for V. I made a new hair acessories organizer for the bathroom and turbant towels for the girls in the house. She played a lot with my mini pompoms. I bought two different fabric pieces and promissed myself I would better control myself.

No blog mostrei basicamente projetos feitos anteriormente que nunca tinham sido publicados. Fraldas para nenucos, roupa para a Barbie, uma nova The Heartie e as calças do teste ao molde Spencer Slacks. Depois, partilhei a entrada do mês para o desafio Try Something New Every Month (Experimenta Algo Novo Todos os Meses), com uma nova técnica de Quilting (nova para mim, isto é), neste caso o english paper piecing

In the blog, I shared project that had been done before but never posted. Baby doll's diapers, Barbie clothes, a new The Heartie and the Spencer Slacks test pants. Then, I shared my monthly entry for the Try Something New Every Month challenge, with a new to me, Quilting technique, in this case, english paper piecing.

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…
