IT ALL STARTED...


It all started around 2008. I really don't remember how I discovered two blogs: Constança Cabral's Saídos da Concha and Rosa Pomar's  A Ervilha cor-de-rosa, but these blogs - which continue to be on my top list! - awakened in me the desire to start making things. I started by making simple things for myself (tote bags, small pouches, etc.). Soon after, I was expecting my first child: Teresa and my mother told me she wanted to sew some baby clothes for her. My mother always sewed things for me and my sister when we were younger. Actually, all the dresses that I remember from my childhood were made by my mother. She did a number of gorgeous dresses (cueiros, in Portuguese) for Teresa, but still then I never though I could do the same. Yet, when Teresa was 1, I bought her a romper at a store and after looking at it, I though that I could do it. So, the first piece of clothing I made for my girl was a romper. Here it is!



I would like to see it now (it must be terrible!!), but I was so proud!

A Rosa e a Constança são de facto as referências portuguesas em termos de blogs de costura e crafts. Também foram as primeiras pessoas que comecei a seguir.
Esse fofo para primeira costura está óptimo!! Lindo!
Costurar para os nossos filhos sabe tão bem, não sabe?

Obrigada! Adoro fazer coisas para eles, não me estou a ver a fazer coisas para mim, but one never knows...

Que engraçado Soraia, a minha história também começou em 2008, mais ou menos da mesma maneira. Nem acredito que já passaram seis anos desde que fiz a primeira roupinha para a minha Rita e ainda a tenho guardada <3.
