March Wrap Up

Apesar do frio, apesar da Primavera se esquecer que já devia ter chegado, em Março já tivemos uns dias bons de sol, que tentámos aproveitar com os miúdos. Ela é tão pálida que sempre que o sol brilha um pouco mais forte nesta altura, quero é levar a miúda para a rua, a ver se ganha cor. E foi assim que fomos passear para diferentes praias das redondezas. O amigurumi da minha mãe. O S. a brincar com as letras magnéticas, pena que só dura um minuto, depois manda tudo ao chão. Decisões na escolha de algum material. Eles juntos, ele com os legos, ela a cortar papel. Fiz umas calças para ele. Comprei uma malha lindíssima. Visitámos os dinossauros em exposição. Fizemos um coelho da Páscoa. A minha cidade. A minha manta. Limpei a máquina a fundo. Fomos ver a prima no estádio do Algarve. Construímos uma borboleta. Fiz um top para mim (e outras coisas que ainda não posso mostrar). A ver os patos. Manicura Frozen. Acabei o livro enquanto bebia chocolate quente trazido pelo namorido já tarde. Eles, a pintar com pincéis e aguarelas. A macaca na máquina e ela à espera. Um urso de feijões e arroz. Pequeno almoço. Lanche. Primeira pintura dele. 

Quanto ao blog, mais do mesmo... andou bem paradinho. Fiz 4 posts em Março e um deles foi o resumo do mês anterior. Dos três restantes, dois foram de costura e um de como fazer sabonete líquido em casa. As costura que mostrei, foram um vestido, com o molde Holiday Cut Out da Bella Sunshine Designs e as calças de ganga recicladas para o S., o molde é o Walker Jeans da Momma Quail Patterns.

Although it is so cold, and Spring seems to forgot it should be here already, we have had a couple sunny days already, that we managed to enjoy with the kids. She's so pale, everytime I see the sun shining, I want to be outside with her, to see if she gets a little tan. And that's how we got to enjoy some walks in a few of the nearby beaches. My mom amigurumi. S. playing with the magnetic letters, too bad it doesn't seem to last longer than a minute, then he throws it all down. Decision on supplies. Them together, he plays with legos, she cuts paper. I made jeans for him. I bought a beautiful knit. We visited the dinossaurus exhibition. We made an Easter rabbit. My town. My blanket. I deep cleaned my machine. We watched my niece playing on the Algarve Stadium. We built a butterfly. I made myself a top (and other things I can't share yet). Watching the ducks. Frozen nails. I finished the book as I drank some hot chocolate the hubby brought me quite late. Them, painting with brushes and watercolors. The monkey was in the washer, she waited. A beans and rice bear. Breakfast. Afternoon snack. His first painting. 

As for the blog, same old same old... it has been really slow. I made 4 posts in March and one of them was the previous month wrap up. From the other three, I made two sewing related posts and one on how to make your own homemade liquid soap. As for the sewing, I shared a Holiday Cut Out dress, pattern from Bella Sunshine Designs and the refashioned Walker Jeans for S., pattern by Momma Quail Patterns.

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…
