Podcast #1 Apresentação (Intro)

Scroll down for english, please!

Há algum tempo que ando com esta ideia em mente, e depois de ver os podcasts da Naná do blog Mãos de Vera, lá me decidi e fiz o meu próprio video também. Este é o primeiro podcast do House of Estrela, em português, como se quer. Vamos ver no que isto dá, e bem... espero que gostem, mesmo com o meu jeito trapalhão para estas coisas. Neste primeiro episódio, falo-vos um pouco sobre mim e de como comecei nisto das costuras. Faço referência aos projetos que tenho entre mãos e algumas coisas que tenho planeadas fazer.

Duas Estrelinhas - página facebook*

* antes do House of Estrela, escrevia outro blog de crafts, o Duas Estrelinhas (duas estrelinhas porque inicialmente partilhava os meus trabalhos e os da minha mãe). A página do facebook foi criada nessa altura e permaneceu ativa. Lá, tenho peças mais antigas, e as recentes também. Este blog que escrevo agora, também tem página própria, aqui

I've started a podcast of my own after thinking it over for a while. Unfortunately it is for my portuguese readers only, since we lack on podcasts on our own language when it comes to sewing. I mention a few things in the video, such how I started sewing, what sewing machine I use, what projects I am involved with right now, what things I am sewing and crocheting. Here's the links to some of those things I mention.

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…
