Snow White Costume

A few days ago, I came here to tease you with my thrift finds. I told you I was going to make my daughter's Carnival costume and dared you to guess what was it from this photo... 

Congratulations... you all guesses well. 

But that was quite easy, wasn't it? 

I made her a Snow White costume and today's the big reveal - as if it was something that important... erhmmm... just play along 'k? As you can tell, I didn't use the velvet dress, I didn't find the courage to cut it. My mom was in love with it too when she saw it, and she also told me it would be a shame to cut it to pieces. 

I used the Bumblebee pattern by Sewing Mama RaeAnna as a base for this, mainly for the bodice, since I had to adjust all the rest to what I wanted. Because I have made a dress and a tunic for my daughter with this pattern before, I knew this would be the perfect fit I was searching for. 

Besides the items I bought at the charity shop, I also used a dress (to make up for the velvet one I didn't use), a pair of yellow pants (used as a layered skirt because the main one was too thin, and see through), a scrap of red satin and a piece of red tulle. Oh, some red ribbon too. I used the tulle on the linning skirt, hoping this would give a better look to the dress, more opened. 

It worked better than I hoped and G. is just so happy with her dress. She's wearing it today for the school Carnival party, and she wore it yesterday for a parade. 

If you wanna know how I made this, step by tomorrow, when I will be sharing a step by step to make your own.

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…
