DIY necklace in 3 easy steps/ uradi sam ogrlica u tri lagana koraka

Happy Sunday! Today's post won't be very long as I'm going to show you one necklace that I've made recently and already gave it away. I took this pics in a hurry (they're not very interesting and arty I'm afraid). Anyway, I'll try to make it a habit to document my creations before they end up as gifts. 

If you want to try this DIY yourself, you will need: faux leather, some kind of decoration (I've bought these shiny plastic ones in store where they sell sewing equipment and I'm sure they're not hard to find wherever you may live) and a bit of satin cord. 

step no.1
-cut out as much faux leather as you will need
step no.2
-sew the decoration of  your choice (beads, stones, crystals- whatever)
step no.3 
-sew the satin cord making sure it is the right length for your neck....and it's really as easy as that!

* I think it's only fair that I warm you that you might experience pain or some kind of discomfort in your arms if you do this frequently. Sewing by hand is never easy and it's harder when it comes to leather (and even faux leather thought this one is obviously softer). That's why sometimes special tools are needed to work with leather (which I never managed to get my hands on but that's another subject.) So, don't say I didn't warn you;)

Ugodna nedjelja! Današnji post neće biti jako dug, samo ću vam pokazati jednu oglicu koju sam nedavno izradila i već je uspjela udomiti:) Na brzinu sam je uslikala (pa eto fotografije i nisu nešto zanimljive ni umjetnične) i odsada svakako ću nastojati dokumentirati svoje radove prije nego što završe kao pokloni. 

Ukoliko vi želite isprobati ovaj uradi sam projekt, trebati će vam : eko koža, neka vrsta dekoracije (ja sam kupila ove sjajne plastične u trgovini gdje se prodaje oprema za šivanje, ali gdje god živjeli sigurno ćete uspjeti pronaći nešto slično) i malo satenske trake.

prvi korak
- izrežite onoliko eko kože koliko će vam biti potrebno za ogrlicu
drugi korak
- ušijte dekoraciju po izboru (perlice, kamenčići, kristalići- što god)
treći korak
-  prišijte satensku traku pazeći da je duljina odgovarajuća za vas.


* Mislim da je pošteno da vam upozorim kako će vas ruke možda zaboljeti,, pogotovo ako ovo budete često radili jer kada se radi sa kožom (pa bila to i eko kože) bez posebne opreme to jest sa običnom iglom i koncem, a uz to se ušiva veliki broj ukrasa...Eto nemojte reći da vas nisam upozorila;)

    1. nije teško ni komplicirano, ali je potrebno sat, dva vremena i truda...mislim da se na kraju ipak isplati.

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

READING UPDATE: ASIMOV'S ROBOT SERIES AND BUY JUPITER SHORT STORY COLLECTION

As some of you might know, one of my favourite science fiction authors is Isaac Asimov. I've always loved science fiction. I have grown up reading it and I never really stopped. Asimov's Robot Series is composed of six novels and thirty seven short stories. Recently I've read a few novels in the Asimov's Robot series and today I'm going to share my reviews of them. I'm also going to share my reviews of some of the novels from this series that I have read in the past. Moreover, I'm going to share my review of Buy Jupiter and other stories by Isaac Asimov, a short story collection that features some stories from his Robot universe. As for the fashion part of the post, nothing I'm wearing is new (and you know it because I signed up for Slow Fashion initiative). I had this yellow top for ages (see how I styled it here and here) and that goes for this olive green pencil skirt and the boromina sandals. However, the bag is new. I forgot about that- it was a g…

WHAT TO SEE AND DO IN BLAGAJ ( BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA)

I truly enjoy showing you around Bosnia and Herzegovina. Have you noticed that? You know, there are some really amazing destinations in this country. Today I'll take you to beautiful Blagaj, located only a short drive from Mostar city. Blagaj is a picturesque historical village located in Herzegovina region. This little green river oasis is an increasingly popular tourist destination and not without a reason. Blagaj village has got one of the strongest and most beautiful river springs in Europe. This stunning and potent water spring creates Buna river and is a impressive example of karst river formation. Right next to it you can find a historical dervish house (tekija) that is open all year round. 
The dervish house dates back to the sixteenth century.  It placed right next to the entrance to the cave  where the river Buna springs from and it is an incredible site. The cliff over the cave is a very impressive sight as well! You can even go for a boat ride in the cave and see this…

FASHION ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY: ILLUSTRATED TOTE BAGS REDBUBBLE

I don't know what it is about the combination of tote bags and fashion illustrations that I like so much. Maybe it is simply a matter of combining two things that I love. I adore tote bags for their practicality, I like to carry one with me (often tucked in my regular bag) at all times because you never know. We all know that the typical disposable plastic grocery bags are a huge no-no for the environment, so a tote bag is a must (even if just for grocery shopping).  I personally like to wear tote bags even on occasions that have nothing to do with grocery lists, but to each his own. As for fashion illustration, well I don't have to explain that. I have literally loved fashion illustration for as long as I can remember. Joining my creative skills with tote bags seemed logical! Some of you might remember that I even hand painted some vintage tote bags. In fact, you had the chance of seeing one of those tote bags recently here. As much as I enjoy using textile prints, I also li…
