Luis & Joana Hoodie

Aqui já vos falei sobre a Susana, por isso dispensa apresentações. Acontece-se que ontem, a Susana lançou o seu segundo molde, e mais uma vez fiz parte do seu grupo de teste. A sério que quando vi que ela estava para testar outro molde fiquei logo entusiasmada, é que trabalhar com um molde em português é outra coisa. Não que não me sinta à vontade com os moldes em inglês, mas que tem outro gosto, lá isso tem. 

I've already told you about Susana, here, so no introductions needed. It happens that Susana's second pattern has been out yesterday, and I have been part of her testers again. I seriously felt quite excited when I saw she was calling for new testers, because working with a pattern that is written in portuguese (there is an english version too, as well as there is one for her first pattern now too!!), is something quite different. Not that I don't feel comfortable with the english patterns, it is just that it is specia, I don't know how to explain it. 

Então, como eu dizia, ontem a Susana lançou o seu 2º molde, o Luis & Joana Hoodie através do Up Craft Club, onde estará até ao fim do dia de hoje com 25% de desconto, a partir de amanhã podem encontrá-lo também em Suco by Susana

As I was saying, Susana had her Luis & Joana Hoodie pattern out yesterday through Up Craft Club, where you can find it until the end of the day with 25% off, from tomorrow on you can also get it from Suco by Susana

O molde vai dos 12M aos 12A, e garanto-vos que é daqueles moldes aos quais podemos recorrer frequentemente, pois não sei quanto a vocês, mas os meus miúdos usam basicamente roupas confortáveis, e hoodies, estão sempre lá. 

The pattern comes in sizes 12M - 12Y and I assure you it is one of those go to patterns, because, I don't know about you, but my kids spend their lives in comfortable clothes, so hoodies are a  big part of it. 

Desta vez testei o molde no tamanho 5, para a minha filhota e digamos que foi um sucesso cá por casa. Quando quis tirar fotos para mostrar à designer como assenta a peça nela, respondeu-me que deixava tirar as fotos com a condição de poder ficar com ele vestido depois de as tirarmos. Uma querida, portantos!

This time I tested size 5 for my girl, and let's say it has been quite a success around here. When I tried to take some fitting photos of her for the designer, she told me she would only if she could keep it after the shotting. A sweetheart, of course!

O tecido é da única loja onde tenho comprado tecidos ultimamente, e usei este na falta de melhor pois não tinha nada capaz em sweatshirt para costurar isto. Este é um jersey fino, não extremamente fino porém, por isso até funcionou bem aqui. O único senão é que possivelmente só será usado quando os frios voltarem a ficar um pouco mais quentes. 

The fabric is from the only shop I've been buying from lately, and I used this one because I didn't have a good sweatshirt one for the project. This is a light jersey, though not too light so it worked just fine. The only no-nos of this one is that we might have to wait for warmer days for her to wear it. 


  1. Ola Magda!
    Acho que foste tu que me enviaste a prendinha da troca de natal. Queria agradecer gostei muito dos sabonetes cheirosos e a arvore de natal que está pendurada na minha arvore. Desculpa só agradecer agora mas nao tina qualquer contacto teu e nem tempo para pesquisar. Aqui fica os meus agradecimentos e desejos de um Feliz natal e um óptimo ano novo.

    1. Olá Dora.
      Peço desculpa por não ter respondido antes ao comentário. Ando meio afastada do blog e algo desmotivada.
      Sim, fui eu quem enviou. Foi uma coisa que achei mal da troca, é que para além da morada faltava ali um link para qualquer plataforma onde pudéssemos saber mais da pessoa que nos calhou. Falo por mim, que queria enviar algo mais personalizado e não consegui.

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…
