#MeMadeMay 2016 - week 2

Scroll down for english, please. 


Já entrámos na terceira semana de Maio e eu continuo a participar do desafio de vestir peças feitas por mim todos os dias. Como podem constatar só de olhar para a foto acima, saltei uns dias esta semana. Três mais precisamente. Os dois primeiros porque sentia demasiado frio, e uma das coisas que notei e que pretendo mudar, é que eu não tenho roupa mais quente ou aconchegante feita por mim, nem nas alterações... por isso, essa tarefa já está na lista, só não sei se será para já, uma vez que parece que o tempo quente está a voltar (será que é desta que vem para ficar?). O outro dia que falhei foi porque nem sequer cheguei a tirar o pijama. O mês de Maio tem sido para esquecer, já é a segunda vez que fico doente, agora uma constipação enorme, estou eu, o pequenino (foi o primeiro) e o pai. Só a princesa escapou. Mas voltando às peças costuradas por mim que eu usei... Dia 9: Comecei a semana a vestir o casaco que testei há pouco tempo para a Itch to Stitch, o molde é o Lisbon Cardigan, e publiquei-o há pouco tempo aqui no blog. Neste dia, usei o casaquinho com umas calças clássicas e uma blusa de renda (que decidi nesse dia não voltar a usar!), ambas de compra. Dia 10 & 11: não usei nada feito por mim. Dia 12: Usei um top comprido que fiz quando estava grávida do S. há dois anos atrás. Fiz-lhe umas pequenas alterações, que espero partilhar um dia destes. Publiquei aqui, no seu aspeto original. A completar o look do dia, usei umas calças de ganga e um casaco de malha comprido. Dia 13: Nada feito por mim. Dia 14: Fomos a uma festa de aniversário do filho de uma amiga e aproveitei para fugir ao meu look habitual, mais simples, e assim vestir um vestido que reciclei aqui. Também fiz algumas alterações antes de o voltar a vestir. Descosi na cintura para reduzir os valores de costura e ganhar cerca de 1cm a mais na altura, além disso, fechei a abertura atrás, estava excessivamente grande e era desnecessária. Usei-o com um dos meus (muitos) casaquinhos de malha, já visto noutros dias. Dia 15: Para finalizar a semana, optei por peças confortáveis, já que nem saí de casa, pois andei tão mole de noites mal dormidas com o S. a chorar, e um peso na cabeça da constipação. Tirando, mais uma vez o casaco de malha que era de compra, o que vesti foi feito por mim. O top, cujo molde é o Everyday Tank Top da Serger Pepper, mostrei aqui, e as minhas M is for Motto Joggers (publicado aqui), da Hatchling Patterns e que já vos disse que adoro. Acho que preciso de um terceiro par, ahahah! Por hoje é tudo, podem ver o resumo da primeira semana aqui

We are into the third week of May already, and I am still in for the challenge of wearing me mades everyday. As you can easily guess from the collage above, I skipped a few days this latest week. Three of them more precisely. the first two days I missed were due to the weather, and one of the things I figured, is that I don't own any warm and cosy me mades, which is something I added to my to do list now,. I don't know if I'll get to that soon or just later, because apparently the good weather is coming back (will it stay for good now?). The other day I missed, was because I didn't even take off my pajamas. May hasn't been that nice to us and for the second time in two weeks I am ill, this time with a huge cold, myself, the little one (he was the first) and daddy. Only the princess escaped from it. Anyway, back to the me mades from week two... Day 9: I started the week, wearing the Lisbon Cardigan which pattern I tested not long ago, by Itch to Stitch, I have posted it here. I also wore classic pants and a lace shirt (that I decided not to wear again) that day, both rtw.  Day 10 & 11: I didn't wear any me mades. Day 12: I used a long top I made while pregnant with S. two years ago. I made some adjustments to it, which I hope to post about, one of these days. I posted it here, in its original shape. To complete the look, I wore rtw jeans and a long cardigan. Day 13: Nothing me made. Day 14: We had a friend son's birthday party that day which was the perfect excuse to get a little dressed up, at least a bit more than my usual simplier look, and wear a dress I refashioned here. I also made a few alterations to this one, before I got to wear it again. I unpicked the waist seam to gain a little 3/8 lenght to the dress, and I also closed the opening on the back, which was too deep and totally unnecessary. I wore it with one of my (many) cardigans, as seen on previous days. Day 15: To finish off the week, I chose comfy pieces, since I didn't even leave the house that day, between the sleepless nights with S. crying and the heavy weight on my head due to the cold. Again, apart from the rtw cardigan, I wore me mades. The top is the Everyday Tank Top by Serger Pepper, that I shared here, and my M is for Motto Joggers (posted here), a favorite in my wardrobe, pattern by Hatchling Patterns. I think I need a third pair, ahahaha! It is all for today, you can read first week's wrap up here

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…
