[:en]Today I’m going to show my latest project! It was on my head for a while and when I went home I sewed it! I told myself to leave it to Christmas but I couldn’t resist. It’s a fast project to make and I didn’t […]

Newspaper Wallet

Newspaper Wallet

[:en]Look what I made! I made a wallet using the same fabric of this bag, there weren’t many leftovers but they were enough to make it 🙂 The black fabric was the worst, I had to sew strips together to have enough but it was okay 🙂
Everything went well until the final step and in the end it turned out little bit weird don’t you think? My perfectionist self is criticizing a lot this wallet but I’m just going to use it everyday and don’t give a damn, seriously I should be proud right? I never thought I could be able to do something like this (even if it’s very far from perfect), I feel like I’ve been improving slowly on my sewing and it makes me so happy!

Something I’m very proud of is the zipper, I totally jumped with joy when I made my first zippered pocket, perhaps it’s silly but I feel like it’s one of the things that makes me believe I’ve leveled up 🙂 (seems like I’m talking about a game)

I followed this tutorial, hope you like it even with all these imperfections 🙂
[:pt]Vejam o que fiz! Fiz esta carteira com o mesmo tecido desta mala, não tinha muitos restos mas foram o suficientes para a fazer 🙂 Arranjar tecido preto suficiente foi o mais difícil, tive de coser tiras do tecido para ter o que me faltava mas correu bem 🙂
Tudo correu bem até ao passo final e no fim ficou um bocadinho estranha não ficou? O meu perfeccionismo está a criticar bastante a carteira mas vou usá-la todos os dias sem me importar, devo sentir-me orgulhosa por ela certo? Nunca pensei que conseguisse fazer algo assim (mesmo que esteje longe de ser perfeita), sinto que estou a melhorar lentamente a minha costura e isso deixa-me muito feliz!

Algo que estou mesmo orgulhosa é o fecho, saltei de alegria quando acabei o meu primeiro bolso com fecho, pode parecer um bocadinho estúpido mas é uma daquelas coisas que me faz sentir num nível mais acima 🙂 (parece que estou a falar de um jogo)

Segui este tutorial, espero que gostem mesmo com todas as imperfeições 🙂

A mala de jornal e a saia às bolinhas

A mala de jornal e a saia às bolinhas

[:en]Remember when one of my summer resolutions was to travel? I took it to a different level, since I worked almost all the summer and couldn’t really travel I decided that my travel would be a sewing workshop. I did it two Thursdays and it was just amazing, leaving work and being able to de stress. I’ve been wanting to learn sewing for so long and never got really the opportunity. In the workshop I made this bag:

I just love it, it’s not perfect but for me it’s really special. Now in the winter I don’t usually carry it (it’s raining everyday) but I couldn’t not use it before that. Sometimes I still cannot believe that I did that 🙂
And after sewing the bag I sewed the polka-dot blue skirt =) Instructions here.

It has a label written in cross stitch, I didn’t take any picture of it but some day I’ll show you. Unfortunately it doesn’t look very good on me. Not trying to bring my issues to this blog but the skirts adds me a few kg. It really kills me because I loved to be able to start wearing skirts (because how I wouldn’t wear a skirt made by me?) and I hate to see it in a drawer. Maybe when I’ve some free time I’ll sew another thing out of it. I’m no specialist but I hope someday my sewing skills will improve, for now I’m just proud of what I did.

[:pt]Lembram-se que um dos meus objectivos no verão passado era viajar? Fiz isso num nível diferente, como tive a trabalhar quase todo o verão e não tive oportunidade para viajar decidi que a minha viagem seria uma workshop de costura. Fui lá duas Quintas e foi simplesmente fantástico, sair do trabalho e descontrair. Andava a querer aprender costura há imenso tempo mas nunca tinha tido a oportunidade. No workshop fiz esta mala:

Adoro-a, não é perfeita mas para mim é especial. Agora no inverno não ando com ela (chove todos os dias) mas antes andava sempre com ela. Às vezes nem acredito que a fiz 🙂
E depois de fazer a mala costurei uma saia às bolinhas =) Instruções aqui.

Tem uma etiqueta escrita em ponto de cruz, mas não tirei nenhuma foto dela, talvez um dia. Infelizmente não me fica muito bem. Sem tentar estar aqui com coisas aqui no blog mas a saia dá-me mais uns kgs. Odeio isso porque gostava de começar a usar saias (e como é que não ia usar uma saia feita por mim?) e odeio-a ver numa gaveta. Talvez um dia tenha algum tempo livre e faça outra coisa com o tecido. Por agora sinto-me feliz com o resultado, não sou especialista mas um dia hei-de melhorar.
