Earth Day |Billie Jeans for her|

Scroll down for english, please. 

Hoje é Dia da Terra. Nós hoje levantamos-nos tarde. Vestimos os miúdos e fomos com eles até à praia. Aquele pequeno pedaço de céu não tinha lá mais ninguém, foi todo para nós. Os miúdos brincaram na areia, soube bem vê-los divertidos. O sol estava quente e não estava muito ventoso como ultimamente. 

It is Earth Day today. We had a late get up in the morning today. Dressed the kids and took them to the beach. That little piece of heaven had no one else there but us. The kids played in the sand, it felt good to see them enjoying theirselves. The sun was warm and it wasn't too windy as usually lately. 

Hoje, por ser Dia da Terra, e porque estamos ainda na Semana da Fashion Revolution, vesti-os com roupas feitas por mim, por completo. Quer dizer, ao mini tive que vestir um casaco de compra (mas que é usado em segunda mão) porque não tem nenhum feito por mim (ainda!). Ele vestiu este conjunto, só agora lhe serve mesmo bem. Ela vestiu esta camisola, este casaco e as calças que mencionei na publicação anterior. * e sim, se foram espreitar o link, já fiz este casaco em 2014 e ainda serve, quer dizer, eu quero que sirva, mas acho que esta terá sido muito provavelmente a última vez que o vestiu... 

Because it is Earth Day today, and we´re still celebrating Fashion Revolution Week, I dressed my kids fully mommy made. Well, I had to put on a RTW jacket to the little one because he doesn't have any made by me (yet!). He wore this outfit, only now it fits him perfectly. She wore this shirt, this jacket and the jeans I mentioned in my previous post. * and yes, if you went and checked the link, I made it back in 2014 and still fits, or I want it to fit, I think this might have been the last timeshe wore it though... 

Não só todas estas peças foram feitas por mim, como todas elas são reciclagens de itens já existentes e que ganharam nova vida. O fato dele nasceu de 3 t-shirts de mulher. A blusa dela de um lençol de malha, e o casaco dela de umas calças de veludo de mulher. As calças que veste também são recicladas e é delas que venho falar hoje claro. 

Not only were these pieces handmade, they were all refashioned as well. His outfit was born from 3 women t-shirts. Her shirts come from a knit sheet, and her jacket from velvet women pants. The pants she's wearing, are refashioned as well, and it's about them that I am here to blog about. 

Para começar, usei o molde Billie Jeans (Momma Quail Patterns), e foram feitas ainda durante o teste. Fiz-lhe o tamanho 5 e fiquei encantada com o resultado. Assentam-lhe tão bem. Escolhi as mesmas opções das calças do irmão, corte skinny e altura pelos tornozelos. 

For a start, I used Billie Jeans pattern (Momma Quail Patterns), and they were made still in the test phase. I made her size 5 and I was amazed by the end. They fit perfectly. I chose the same features I did for her brother's, skinny fit and ankle lenght. 

O tecido veio de um par de calças de mulher, não tinham tanta elasticidade como as que usei para o par do S., na verdade a elasticidade que tinham era pouquíssima, arrisquei, claro. A principio pensei que iam ficar demasiado apertadas e reduzir a facilidade de movimentos, mas nem por isso. Ficaram mesmo ótimas. Mais um molde da Amy aprovado e que eu recomendo. 

The fabric I used came from a women's jeans, and they weren't as stretchy as the ones I used to make S's pair, in good truth they had almost no stretch at all, so it was a risk I took, of course. First I thought they would be too tight and difficult movement, but not really after all. They were just great. Another pattern from Amy that I approve and recommend.

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…

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…
