#TSNEM: Edible Crafts

Scroll down for english, please!

O mês passado acabei por não concluir o projecto que tinha pensado fazer (pela primeira vez). O tema era pintura e pensei em experimentar, eu e a miúda, pintar com a boca, mas não se realizou, quem sabe em breve. O tema deste mês foi o "comestível" e a meio do mês concluí o nosso (sim, meu e da miúda mais uma vez). Fizemos bolachas. Sim, já tínhamos feito bolachas antes, mas isto foi uma daquelas coisas que vemos no Pinterest a toda hora e decidi experimentar (não segui nenhum tutorial, pareceu-me óbvio o como era feito. A ideia (criativa) era conseguir colocar um coração no meio das bolachinhas. Como correu? ahahahaha... mal! LOL Nalgumas até se nota qualquer coisa parecida com um coração, mas noutras, aquilo só me deu vontade de rir. Vejam as fotos. A miúda juntou os ingredientes todos, depois amassou a massa, separei-a em duas partes, uma maior que deixei na sua cor normal, e depois dividi a segunda em três, a cada qual adicionei uma cor diferente de corante: vermelho, azul e verde. Foi ao frio para endurecer. Depois esticámos a massa, e cortámos corações que empilhámos por cor. Usámos a massa sem cor para formar um rolo com os corações no meio. Acho que não correu tão bem porque a nossa massa estava um pouco mole demais, deveria ter colocado no frigorifico mais um pouco depois deste passo. Ou talvez esta receita de bolachas não fosse a ideal, por isso acho que ainda é possível que experimente fazer novamente. Cortámos esse rolo em fatias de cerca de 0,5 cm e colocámos no forno. E pronto. As nossas bolachas ficaram assim... umas melhores que outras. Ah. com os pedacinhos de massa que sobraram, fizemos rolos compridos, tipo cobras, entrelaçámos os colorido e usámos o resto da massa à volta, com esse rolo mais pequeno, fizemos mini bolachas coloridas. Foram as primeiras a desaparecer. Eu, nem provei. 

Last month I did not make the project I thought of making (for the first time). The theme was painting and I thought about trying painting with our mouths, me and my daughter, but we didn't make it, who knows maybe sometime soon we do. This month's theme is "edible", and we did our about 2 weeks ago (yes, we, me and my girl again). We made cookies. Yes, we have made them before, but this was one of those things we keep seeing in Pinterest all the time and I chose to try it (I did not follow a tutorial, it just seemed obvious to me how to make them). The (creative) idea was to put a heart in the center of our cookies. How did it go? ahahahaah.. badly! LOL In some of the cookies you could tell there was something somehow like a heart, in others though, there was just something that made me laugh. See the photos. The girl mixed all the ingredients, kneaded the dough, I divided it in two parts, one bigger that I left as is, and a smaller part that I divided again into three parts to add food coloring in: red, blue and green. After the freeze, to get it harder, we cut hearts with it and made sort of a tower with it, after that, we used the regular dough to cover it all around, making a roll with the hearts in the middle. I think this didn't go better because our dough wasn't hard enough, maybe I should have put in back in he fridge for a little bit more after this step. Or maybe this recipe wasn't a good one to make this. I might try to do this again sometime. We've cut slices of nearly 0,5 cm and put it in the woven to bake. After that, they look like this...some better than the others. Oh, and with the little bits of dough that were left, we made sort of snake shapes with each color, rolled them together, used the regular dough around and cut into mini cookies. Those were the first to desapper, I didn't even got the chance to taste them.

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…

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…
