The Sew OFF

So, the results for week 2 of The Sew Off are here. I didn't make it to the 3rd week if you're wondering. It was no surprise at all, I can tell you. If only the votes of the judges counted, I would be in the 6 contestants left, but those were not the rules of this contest and I'm off now.
That's quite a relief though. My kid is getting sick and I'm feeling just too tired this week to come up with something worth the competition... those ladies are really good!!!
So, it's going to be just nice to follow the competition... I've taken it very sprotly since the start. I'm not too extra competitive so, losing doesn't hurt... It's a case of, it was fun while it lasted! And I do feel like a winner, anyway!
You don't believe me?! Well, let me tell you. First of all, did you see The Sew off prizes? Pretty much fabric and patterns... Ok, I feel a little sad about the patterns, but really?! Fabric? I've been trying to use what I already have because I feel like there's just too much hanging around here. YES, it'd feel good to win it, I won't lie, but it's not the end of the world.
I feel like a winner, because out of all the people that auditioned, I made it to the top 12. And after that I made it to the top 9... so, I didn't make it to the top 6... but, did you realise just how many SO-TALENTED! people I left behind?! There's no way for me NOT to feel like a winner.
I feel like a winner, because I followed my goal of not buying any fabrics, I used my already existing supplies, I pushed my criativity, I renewed a corner from my house that was long waiting for me to. And I had fun creating... doing what I love most, which is sewing. Now, was I clear, enough?
If there's only one thing I feel bad about, is that it got me so tired that I did not stand up for all the sew-alongs I was planning too, and some of my ideas to be done this month were put aside... I am still trying to catch up with a couple of them.
Now, stay around and soon there'll be more to see.


  1. Congratulations for making it to the second round of the Sew-Off. I found you and your blog during the "get to know the contestants," and I'm so happy I did! Much love and continued luck from Texas :) I do hope your daughter feels better soon as well!

    1. Cozye, thanks so much. I'm glad you liked my blog =) Also for wishing well for my daughter, she's still sick =(

  2. I'm glad you'll have time to relax, but I have to admit that your project was my favorite. I've been sewing along with both The Sew Off and Sew-vivor and I almost quit both because it got to be too much. You've got some great stuff!

    1. Oh Jordan, thanks so much for your words. I didn't believe my own project. But I was quite hopeless about passing to the next round so I didn't bother to do better anyway. I think I won't be able to follow PR&P this week =( and I already made an entry that fitted both PR&P and Sew-vivor.

  3. How many people auditioned? Top 9 out of well over 100 is not bad at all!

    1. I just checked! There were 109 people auditioning =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…
