April Wrap Up

Scroll down for english, please!

Muitos passeios a parques, praias, jardins, a aproveitar enquanto a Primavera não estava em força, porque assim que isso acontece, o papá deixa de poder andar muito pela rua. Alergias, a treta das alergias. Assim que aqui fica o selecionado para este resumo. Tecidos, comprei dois numa loja local, comprei vários numa loja online. Foi um mês farto de testes a moldes. Em cima, um teste para mim, com uma casa de botão em modo manual, é assim que as faço sempre. Outro teste para mim. Um teste para ela. A primeira coisa feita para o aniversário dela. Partiu as pernas da Barbie, eu arranjei e fiquei com ela. Umas meias feitas e oferecidas por uma amiga talentosa. Visitámos a avó duas vezes. Numa delas com os primos, fizeram bolachinhas. Ela decidiu pregar uma tesourada no cabelo, eu fiz-lhe uma franja. Andei a arrumar os meus tecidos. Uma papoila. Outro teste para ela. O céu da minha terra. Um bolo de caneca com topping de morango. 

There were a lot of trips to parks, beaches and garden, while we could. As soon as Spring comes strong, we avoid being outside (as a family) that much, because daddy can't be near any flowers and trees. Allergies, those damn allergies. So, here we go with the selction for this month. Fabric, I bought two pieces in a local shop, several in an online shop. It was a month of pattern tests. On top, a test for me, with a manual made buttonhole, as I always make them. Another test for me. A test for her. First thing finished for her birthday. She broke her Barbie legs, I sort of fixed it and kept it for myself. I was given a pair of handmade socks from a talented friend. We visited grandma twice. One of those times cousins were there too, they made cookies. She decided to cut her own hair, so I had to make her a fringe. I organized my fabric stash. A poppie. Another test for her. The sky from my town. A mug cake with strawberry topping. 


Quanto a publicações no blog, é com alegria que constato que andou mais mexido. Andava mesmo abandonado nos últimos tempos. Espero continuar a aumentar o ritmo, ou pelo menos, conseguir manter esta frequência. Comecei o mês com mais um podcast (link abaixo), e de seguida um post sobre a Fashion Revolution Week. Após muito tempo de espera, o vestido que fiz para o casamento da minha sobrinha chegou ao blog, com as suas coisas boas, mas também e principalmente as más. Fiz mais uma vez, parte de um grupo de testers para os moldes Momma Quail Patterns, o molde em teste foi o das calças de ganga Billie Jeans, e fiz um par para cada um dos meus filhos. Acabei as publicações de costuras, com a minha versão da Hemlock Tee, molde grátis da Grainline Studio. Mesmo mesmo a terminar o mês, ainda publiquei as bolachas que fiz com a G. como parte do desafio Try Something New Every Month Challenge. Carreguem nas fotos abaixo para vos direcionarem aos posts originais. 

As for blog posts, I am very happy to see there were more than lately. It was really slow here. I hope I can keep on growing the number of posts, or at least, keep the same rythm from this month. I started the month with a new podcast (find link below - in portuguese only), and then a post about the Fashion Revolution Week. After a long time waiting, the dress I made for my niece's wedding, finally made it to the blog, with its good thing, but also, and mainly, the bad ones too. I was part of the testers group for Momma Quail Patterns again, this time for the Billie Jeans, and I sewed a pair for each of my kids. I ended the sewing posts, with my version of the Hemlock Tee, a free pattern from Grainline Studio. Right on the end of the month, I posted the cookies I made with G. as part of our Try Something New Every Month Challenge. Click on pictures below to take you to the original posts.

  1. Parece-me que foi um mês muito bom ! Por cá o mês terminou com sexta e sábado bem agrestes, muitas dores do G e mesmo com 2 xaropes para a dor não faziam qualquer efeito, até que no domingo de tarde quando reparámos nele melhor em disposição fui olhar para um dos ouvidos e estava cheio de porcaria solta e já a secar, resultado rompeu o timpano... Nós ainda estamos à espera da medicação para a alergia do G que pode demorar até 1 mês a ser produzida. O V ainda não experimentou a Imunoterapia (http://www.stallergenes.pt/acesso-doente/a-dessensibilizacao.html)? É o que nós vamos fazer com o G, no caso dele será uma borrifadela de spray debaixo da lingua todos os dias.
    Gostei de ver o teu vestido que usaste no casamento e apesar do teu desagrado no franzido acho que te ficava lindamente, na altura tinhas o cabelo enorme e sabes que gosto mais de te ver com o cabelo mais curto e pouco volumoso, pareces (ainda) mais nova ;o) Eu volta e meia da-me os vipes e corto-o, sozinha, acho que a ultima vez que fui a cabeleireira foi uns meses depois do G nascer. Pelo carnaval dei um corte tão drástico que ficou a meio do pescoço e lá se foram muitos dedos de cabelo, é uma sensação de liberdade enorme ;o) É pena as meias terem chegado no fim do frio para usar já para tricotar tenho 2 pares execução já no fim e ainda sabe bem mexer em lã;o)

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…
