3 Thrifty Baby Gifts you can sew

Dana, from Sew Thrifty has been an inspiration ever since I found her blog. Just like me, she loves to make use of what she had already and find a creative way to make things live longer in new forms. She just had a precious little girl, and she has put a few bloggers together, sharing thrifty ideas baby related to celebrate the arrivals of her youngest! Congratulations to her and her family!


I've got two kids and I think we're pretty much done with having kids. You'll never know what the future holds, and sometimes life comes up with a few unexpected surprises. We're not planning on having anymore though, so as cute and lovely as they are, chances are I'll be sewing baby items only to gift the ones around me. And with that in mind, I have put together a little wrap up of the baby related tutorials I have shared so far. Not only they are baby related, they will also cost you nothing to make... Let's see...

EYMM tour: Back to School Mom Edition

Scroll down for english, please!


Gostei desta ideia desde o princípio (não estaria aqui se assim não fosse). A verdade é que é muito giro costurar para os miúdos, mas os meus, continuam a ter mais roupa do que aquela que vestem, e eu ando muito mais virada a costurar para mim, no pouco tempo que tenho tido para isso. E depois de aturar os miúdos o verão inteiro, é com alguma alegria que os envio para a escola neste maravilhoso Setembro. O pequenino entrou na creche a semana passada - pela primeira vez - e a mais velha começa esta semana, e eu vou festejar com o meu novo vestido!

I liked this idea from the start (I wouldn't be here if I didn't anyway). Truth is it is really fun sewing for my kids, but mine at least, still have quite a lot more clothes than those they manage to wear, and I have been more into sewing for myself lately, in my little free time. And after putting up with the kids all summer, feels kinda good to send them back to school this beautiful September. The …

Bonn Shirt & Dress pattern by Itch to Stitch

Scroll down for english, please!

Há muito tempo que não dava notícias por aqui, não é verdade? Entre a correria do fim do verão e do ter voltado a trabalhar, embora a meio tempo, pouco espaço tem sobrado para as costuras. No entanto, não há nada como um teste a um molde chamativo para me fazer voltar ao ativo (ah, entretanto também fiz esta blusa que partilhámos há uns dias no Cose+). 
Long time no seen, right? Between summer's end eclectic life and being back to work, even though part-time, has left a little space for sewing around here. Despite all that, there's nothing like an appealing pattern test call to get me back on track (oh, and I also made this shirt we shared a few days ago over at Cose+). 

O teste que vos falo acima, foi para a Kennis dos moldes Itch to Stitch, e é o molde Bonn Shirt and Dress. Aproveitem os 20% de desconto do lançamento do molde (hoje) e ainda 15% de desconto na conta final se comprarem dois ou mais moldes. E que tenho eu a contar-vos sobre o no…
