Olá visitante!

O meu nome é Magda E. e sou moro em Portugal.  

Criei este blogue para partilhar as minhas criações com o mundo. Uma forma de aprender, ensinar, ou simplesmente partilhar experiências, opiniões e pensamentos sobre (basicamente) costura. A minha mãe ensinou-me um pouco de costura à mão, mas aprendi quase tudo o que sei, por mim própria. Ainda tirei um pequeno curso mas não durou muito, nem foi muito bom. Alguns anos depois, fui convidada a dar formação, e ensinei iniciantes numa pequena vila durantes alguns meses (mas depois tive a minha bebé e fui obrigada a parar)Tenho costurado uma grande diversidade de coisas, de roupas góticas/alternativas (incluindo alguns desfiles), a items de bebé tais como almofadas de amamentação, slings, etc. Mais recentemente, tenho-me praticamente dedicado a roupa infantil (principalmente desde que fui mãe pela primeira vez em 2011) e tento sempre aprender e aperfeiçoar a minha costura. 
Tenho uma pequena loja onde mostro e vendo os meus produtos (trabalho quase em exclusivo apenas com encomendas). 

Estou sempre aberta a novas ideias e partilhas, por isso a quem precisar de me contactar, pode fazê-lo aqui:


Hello visitor!

My name is Magda E. and I'm from Portugal. 

I've created this blog to share my creations with the world. A way for me to learn, teach or simply exchange experiences, opinions and thoughts on sewing (mainly). 
My mom taught me some basic hand sewing stitches when I was very little, but I've mostly been self taught. I joined a few sewing classes but they didn't last long and were bad. After a few years, I was invited to teach, and I've given begginers sewing classes in a small town for a few months (but then I had my baby and had to quit). 
I've been sewing a lot of different things, from gothic/alternatives clothes (included were a few local fashion shows), to baby items such as breast feeding pillows, slings, etc. Most recently I've turned myself basicly to kid's clothes (mostly since I became a mommy for the first time in 2011) and am always trying to improve and learn new skills.
I have a little SHOP where I show and sell my products (but it's is portuguese only)...

I am always opened to new ideas and sharing, so if you need to contact me, here's how:


  1. Olá Magda, gostei muito de ficar a conhecer o teu blog, parabéns! Já ganhaste mais uma seguidora!! :)

    1. Oh que bom! Adoro conhecer novas bloggers costureiras deste nosso país e que falam a mesma língua! =D

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…
