16 things you didn't know about me

After reading Maegen's post, I suggested that she should have given a number to her readers too, so we could play along with it in our blogs. A bit later, I got an e-mail from her, she gave me the number 16, so here's sixteen things that you might have not known about me before (or maybe you did):

self portrait by me. 

1 - I'm half Portuguese and half Spanish. 
2 - Though my first year in school was in Portugal, the first language I learnt how to write was Spanish (the next year). 
3 - When I was about 5, I had dozens of people around me, trying to get my foot out of a wheel. I ended up in the emergency room. 
4 - When I was younger, I used to say I wanted to be a mother by the time I was 19. 
5 - Although we announced a wedding, I and "husband" have never done it after all. We're together though. 
6 - I had planned to become a mother by the time I was 23, but fate didn't want me to, and I was forced to "wait" until I was 27. 
7 - I love tattoos and I have got 5 of them. 
8 - I don't wear earings on my ears very often, but always wear a nose piercing. 
9 - I've never had my hair cut too short. 
10 - I have a birth sign/spot in my back. 
11 - I have no religion. I believe in Love. 
12 - I used to work in a health shop until my baby was born. I'm now unemployed trying to sew for a living. 
13 - I sew since I was a little girl, but only got better at it when I was about 18-19. 
14 - I am a very difficult person when I want to. 
15 - I'm the youngest of two girls. 
16 - I have a female cat named Wicca and a male cat named Lord Lestat. 

I hope you enjoyed it, and if you want to play along, I give you the number 22 and you should write 22 things about yourself.


  1. Ooooh I do not want to play, but I have to say that I love #11.
    I believe in Love too:) And kindness.
    I had my first child when I was 27 also! (Although for me, that was almost 14 years ago)
    Thanks for sharing! It is nice to learn a little more about you:)

  2. What fun! I'm so glad you played.

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…
