Little Pockets

I wanted my son to have his favourite bedtime toys and stories on his bed and I decided to do some nice pockets for him.

Eu queria que o meu filho tivesse os brinquedos e livros para dormir por perto e decidi fazer uns bolsos para a cabeceira da cama.

He likes to keep his Lego lantern and his small Timmy (from Timmy Time) and some favourite books like "The Shy Fly's House" from kalandraka (in the picture the portuguese version "A Casa da Mosca Fosca") or "The very Hungry Catterpillar" by Eric Carle.

Ele gosta de ter a sua lanterna do Lego e um Timmy pequeno (dos desenhos animados Timmy Time) e alguns livros favoritos como "A Casa da Mosca Fosca" da editora Kalandraka ou "The Very Hungry Catterpillar" de Eric Carle.

T-shirts and more T-shirts

Last week was my husband's birthday so I thought about doing a special birthday gift: A matching hand-printed t-shirt for both him and our baby boy. They looked so cute!
O aniversário do meu marido foi na semana passada e pensei em fazer-lhe um presente de aniversário especial: 2 t-shirts iguais, uma para ele e outra para o nosso bebé!

And since I was in a mood for printing t-shirts I also did this one which I find rather cute:
E como estava com disposição para imprimir t-shirts aproveitei e também fiz esta:

I had so much fun drawing the stencils, cutting them off and painting the shirts that I'll definitely will be doing some more.
Diverti-me imenso a desenhar o molde, cortar e pintar as t-shirts. Definitivamente farei mais no futuro.

What's Next?

I've bought some wonderful fabrics which I'll be using for a blanket for my little boy. Let's see what I'll come up with!
Comprei uns tecidos fantásticos que vou usar para fazer uma mantinha para o meu menino. Vamos ver qual será o resultado!

Lady Bug

This was one of my first projects with my sewing machine. Up until then I was sewing everything by hand. This ladybug was based on a pattern from the "amy butler's little stitches for little ones" book.
Foi um dos primeiros projectos que fiz com a minha máquina de costura. Até então tudo o que fazia era à mão. Esta joaninha foi inspirada num template do livro "amy butler's little stitches for little ones".
