Marta is a cousin with who I used to spend my summer holidays. Although we were not the best friends, we had good times and I still remember when we were waiting for them…it was always with a huge expectation,  she would always bring cool stuff, specially because she used to live in Luxembourg! The clothes, the music and so on, and of course she was older than me, so the impact was bigger!

So now Marta became a mom, I know that Matilde was born, and I bet she is perfect and beautiful!

Here it’s the sling that I made for them, and a bib for Matilde!

Girls, I hope you enjoy everything and I just wish all the happiness in the world!

p.s. And today is my 30 th birthday..I’ll post later about this special day too!!!

Este foi o primeiro sling que fiz! Digam lá que não fica amorosa?!

Entretanto continuo numa correria, entre acabar as encomendas de natal, pensar e fazer os meus presentes, o novo trabalho e tudo o que daí advém, as aulas de ginástica, sim para quem não sabe, também dou treinos de ginástica artistica, a vida continua e muito bem!!E já estou em contagem decrescente para Lisboa!

This was the first sling that I made! Isn’t she cute?!

Between the Christmas orders, the presents that I need to make for my familiy and friends, the new work and all the things around that, the gymnastics trainings…yes, I coach artisitc gymnastics to dutch girls, life goes on and it feels really good! And I’m almost in Lisbon!!

I made this sling a few weeks ago, it’ll be a nice Christmas present! As you see the days are grey  and the winter is arriving…for me it’s the worst part around here!

My friend João was here for a few days and we’ve been enjoying these days around here, Maastricht and Antwerpen, (these are 2 of my favourites cities)- traveling, shopping and girls talk!! It was so good and this was good end of my “work holidays”! Today, it was my first day and it was really good to start reading (again & more) about psychology too!

O Pedro nasce amanhã!

E este tecido da Ana Maria Horner chegou mesmo a tempo de o conseguir fazer! Do outro lado é ganga, continuo a achar que é a melhor opção  porque permite uma maior possibilidade de conjugação com as roupas da mãe!

Joana e Pedro espero que gostem!!!

Pedro will born tomorrow!

This fabric form Ana Maria Horner arrived just in time to do the sling! It’s reversible with jeans fabric on the other side! I still think that this is the best option because it gives more options when conjugate with mom’s clothes!

Joana and Pedro, I hope you enjoy it!!

Acabadinho de fazer!

Gosto muito da combinação da chita, um tecido que é tipicamente português, com a ganga que acaba por ser fundamental no nosso dia-a-dia! O contraste é muito giro e o facto de ser reversível é uma mais valia!

Margarida, acho que consegui aquilo que querias!!!

E as minhas etiquetas a serem usadas!!!

Bom fim-de-semana!

Just finished!

I really like the combination between chita, a typical portuguese fabric, with jeans fabric which nowadays is almost indispensable!

Margarida, I think I got what you wanted!

And here are my new labels getting in use!

Nice weekend!

E hoje o meu primeiro sling seguiu viagem, acho que ficou querido!

Foi fácil de fazer, apenas tive alguma dificuldade na costura da parte curva do sling.

Today my first baby sling went to Lisbon! I hope you like it, I think it’s cute! Isn’t it?!

It was really easy to make but  I had ( some) trouble on the french seam, specially on the curve because it’s hard to flat it!

Hopefully, I’ll have some photos with baby insiede!
