February Wrap Up

Scroll down for english, please!


Já estamos a meio de Março e tem ficado esquecido partilhar o meu resumo do mês passado. Ora aqui vamos. Foi mês de Carnaval, portanto, tivemos disfarces, Elsa (de compra) para a minha G., um Olaf feito por mim para o S. e ainda uma sereia para a minha sobrinha L. a pedido da mesma. Eu e o V. tivemos um momento daqueles, ele com a coroa da filha e eu com as orelhas da Minnie... desculpem lá qualquer coisinha (NOT!). O S. entreteve-se mais um pouco, adora brincar com as molas, mas é por pouco tempo. Eu andei em organizações de armários novamente (volta e meia lá estou eu, já se sabe) e gostei mesmo de ver duas prateleiras completamente vazias neste particularmente, que estava a abarrotar. Recebi uma rosa no dia de S. Valentim. Um miminho para mim a meio de uma manhã - ou tarde, sei lá eu. Visitámos um parque com alguns animais. Fiz um muslin das calças que publiquei há uns dias, e que ainda está por terminar. Comprei carimbos, um furador e purpurinas já a pensar no aniversários dos meus filhotes. Comecei um projecto de reciclagem com cartão e latas. Experimentei fazer um floco de neve de papel. Pintei com aguarelas, inspirada pelos dotes plásticos da minha filha (o meu tem as rosas, o dela tem a palavra love). Comecei a fazer o meu biquini para este verão... ah... o verão! E para terminar, fiz um bibe para o S. e plastifiquei tecido para o mesmo. 

No blogue as coisas estiveram calmas. Apesar do Project Run & Play ter voltado ao seu formato normal e de eu ter ficado super entusiasmada com isso, só consegui acompanhar a primeira semana com uma túnica para a G. Depois participei no tour da Bella Sunshine Designs com um Gabriella Winter Coat ligeiramente alterado, e para terminar, publiquei a minha peça teste do molde Mori Dress and Top que saiu o mês passado.

We're half way through March and I totally forgot to share my wrap up from last month. So, here we go. It was Carnival last month, so we had some costumes here, Elsa (bought it) for my G., a mommy made Olaf for S and a mermaid costume my niece L. requested. V. and I had one of those moments, him with Elsa's crown and I with Minnie ears... excuse any little thing (NOT!). S. got a little busier on his own, he loves the clothespins but not for too long. I've been organizing my cabinets again (as I often do) and it felt really good to find I was left with two completely empty shelves in this particular one. I got a rose for Valentine's. A little treat for me on a morning break - or afternoon who knows? We visited a park with some animals there. I made a muslin for the jeans I posted a few days ago, it is still unfinished. I bought stamps, a puncher and glitter, with my kids birthdays party in mind already. I started a recycling project using cardboxes and cans. I tried to make paper snow flakes for the first time. I painted with watercolour, inspired by my daughter's plastic artist skills (mine is the one with the roses, hers is the one with the word love on it). I started my own bikini for next summer... oh... summer! And to finish, I made my boy a pinny, and I used selfmade plastic fabric for this one. 

Things have been quite in the blog. Although Project Run & Play being back to his original format and all my enthusiasm about it, I was only able to sew along with the first week. I made a tunic for G. Then I was part of Bella Sunshine Designs tour with a Gabriella Winter Coat hack, and to finish, I posted my test piece of the Mori Dress and Top pattern, released last month. You can see more about these, clicking on the photos above.

I also published about refashioning for Cose+, but that is in portuguese only.

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…
