A Stretch Maternity Dress Tutorial with Tes Pes al Miayo

September 6th, 2011

Hi! This is Blanca from Tes Pes al Miayo. I am a mother of two year old twins, boy and girl, that are, of course, the love of my life. I work as a full time engineer, so I only get to sew (and blog) at night… and I’m not a big photographer, that’s why all my pictures look so dim. I have little experience in blogging but, thanks to my mum and grandma, I have been sewing almost all my life. My technique may not be fully pro, but most of the time things turn out just fine!

I offered my modest blogging and sewing skills to Megan, and guess what? She accepted! Thank you, Megan, for having me.

last minute help

August 24th, 2011

Hey all! I am so sorry i haven’t been able to put a tutorial up this week! I feel terrible about it!

My hubby is away on business and my parents are flying in from Australia to visit in 2 days, so i’m kind of running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off right now!

Unfortunately that means I haven’t prepared anything for the next week or so – so I was wondering, would any of you be interested in doing a last minute guest post for DIYM?

I would love it if anyone would be able to help do say a Your DIYM roundup, or a Mommy Spotlight, or even a tutorial (finished item, or even a sewing technique) – that would be amazing!

I know this is last minute, so if none of you have time, I toootally understand, I just thought i would check since i’m a little run off my feet!

XOXO
