Backstage working...

It is extremely hard for me to finish projects ahead and then have to wait so long to share them. I am the kind of seamstress that enjoys sharing whatever I create right away. But sometimes we compromise to other people, and sharing what's been made has to wait.

So, that said, let me tell you I've been like a busy bee, not only sewing, but sorting patterns, searching for inspiration... There are a few great things coming... have you heard?! Here are a few I can share for now... 

The 9th season of Project Run and Play is now starting with the introduction of the designers. The first link party will be open March 24th. Challenge Create starts March 31st, an adult sewing edition, organized by the ladies from Skirt Fixation

Themes for Project Run & Play (click link to read more on blog):
- Take me to the Zoo
- Spring Break 
- Design your own fabric
- Signature style

Themes for Challenge Create (click link to read more on blog):
- Inspired by Nature
- Refashion
- (a hint of) Vintage
- Destashing

Also, Kids Clothes Week is coming back (April 7th - 13th) with something new. It is a themed edition... Mini Me... And this time I am planning to do things right. I have signed in the site already, I am trying to pick my patterns already, and decide what I want to get done through that week. I hope I'll be able to share my creations on time too. I am planning to exclusively sew for the baby during KCW, and am trying to keep the list short, though it's hard. I get all excited and want to do it all, but I know that if I put high expectations into it, I might end up dissapointed, so let's do the best not to.

What about you? Will you be sewing along any of these too?


  1. I nominated your blog for a Liebster award :) Here's a link if you are interested:

    1. Thank you Teri... I will check it a little later. =D

  2. Hmmm, doesn't PR&P start March 24th, a week earlier than Challenger Create: Adult Edition? Not to stress you or anything!

    1. Oh, you're right. I knew that, I just wrote the wrong date on the post for some reason. I will correct that now. Thanks!

  3. Estava a pensar participar nas 3 séries, mas tenho andado a mil na semana passada e nesta semana com pattern testings... vou bater o meu recorde de peças feitas numa semana!... E depois preciso de férias!! (Humm... da máquina de costura? Não sei se consigo!! lol) Pelo menos esta semana não vou conseguir participar no PR&P... a ver se consigo fazer qualquer coisa para as outras séries... Mas vou acompanhar-te!

    1. Pois eu sou mesmo um bocado louca... vou competir, quero acompanhar os temas do PR&P, tb andei a testar moldes há uns dias, e tenho outro para a semana... ah claro e a KCW, tenho planos para 6 peças e acho que jé me estiquei... lol... não acredito conseguir tudo o que tenho planeado, mas vou tentar. A parte mais difícil é mesmo tentar fotografar e escrever sobre tudo. Pelo menos a 1ª semana do PR&P e do Challenge Create estão terminadas.... agora é meter mãos à obra para os outros temas. hehehe.... Obrigado pelo apoio.

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…
