DIY of the day / Današnji Napravi sam projekt





Today's DIY project is a brooch made of faux leather. I have sewn every single plastic bead by hand. The back side looks quite messy but it won't be visible anyway so who cares, right? At least I'm pretty sure that the beads won't fall out. I'm not against gluing as such  but I do love old school ways. That would be all. No long essays today....;) 

Današnji napravi sam projekt je broš od eko kože. Svaku sam plastičnu perlicu ušila posebno. Zadnja strana izgleda dosta neuredno, ali neće biti vidljiva pa koga briga? Barem sam sigurna da perlice neće ispasti. Nisam protiv ljepila, ali volim neke stvari raditi na starinski način.  To bi bilo sve. Danas nema dugih eseja....;)

  4. I'm a great advocate of not worrying about what can't be seen - it makes me a very slapdash seamstress though! Great idea for a brooch.

    1. otkada sam se započela baviti zlatovezom, nekako mi je lakše naći strpljenje za druge stvari jer puno lakše u usporedbi s tim:)

  9. Dear Ivana, although I think I wrote it already many times, I'm again impressed how creative you are and I like the result of your actual DIY! I would have also preferred the sew the pearls - in general I think that sewing is the better solution :) Looking forward to the outfit post with the brooch!

  23. To hand sew all those beads sounds like a lot of work but with such a pretty result, I bet you don't mind. No one's going to look at the back side anyway ;p

  27. Pa ženo draga ti si prava riznica super ideja! :) Nekidan mi se rasula jedna draga narukvica i već sam se razmišljala što ću s tim silnim perlicama i kako ih iskoristiti, baš bih si mogla napraviti ovakav jedan cool ukras. Možda ih zalijepim i na karton pa napravim ogrlicu, sutra ću se pozabaviti s tim pa ti javim što sam uspjela :D

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.

February recap / sažetak veljače

You have seen (more or less) what was February like for me. Now tell me... what was February like for you? Are you happy that it's already March or do you feel like time is flying too fast?Are you looking forward to the spring?

 As far as blogging goes, it seems that I have became more focused on fashion illustrations. In the next month the illustrations will have their place, but there will be more focus on DIY....or at least I think so, because I'm kind of heading in that direction. Apart from that, I have no plans. I have so many ideas when it comes to what I want to blog about, that I often have hard time deciding what not to include. As always, feel free to write about what you would like to see.

Vidjeli ste (više-manje) kako sam provela veljaču...sada mi recite, kakav je vama bio prošli mjesec? Veselite li se proljeću? Jeste li jedva dočekali ožujak ili vam je vrijeme prebrzo proletjelo? Ne zaboravite da nam možda i nije još stiglo i da ime za mjesec ožujak potječe od st…

Wearing the First Dress I Ever Made: A Grey Midi Dress

Here it is: the first dress I have ever made entirely by myself. I did make some summer dresses in the past, but I had sown them without a pattern and a sewing machine and at any rate I wouldn't call them very accomplished. I mean, they weren't nearly as polished as this dress and they were not nearly as complex to make. I'm very happy with how this dress turned out. I'm even happier I took this sewing course in the first place because now I can make more dresses like this one! If you remember my November highlights post, you might remember that I've mentioned how I've recently finished a beginning fashion tailoring and sewing course with designer Stanka Zovko. 

I promised to show you the dress I made for my course 'graduation'. At the end of this lovely sewing course, you get to choose not only what you're going to make, but also the material and the pattern.  The sewing pattern is typically chosen from one of the sewing magazines this designer has …

How To Style Animal Print? + An Autumnal Fairy Tale at Ethno Village Near Medugorje

With winter at our doorstep, I think it's important to make the most out of the left over autumn days. With that in mind, my husband and I payed another visit to our favourite (still not officially opened!) ethno village in vicinity of Medugorje. I wrote about this eco/ethno village a number of times, so if you want to know more (or just see more photographs) feel free to check out my old posts herehereherehere and here.  Autumn is Herzegovina is always gorgeous, and this year hasn't been an exception. We had some sudden weather changes and drastic changes of temperature, but I would still describe this autumn as a beautiful one. The Sunday this photographs were taken on was rather gorgeous, so I'm certainly glad we went on this little trip. I know I'm repeating myself, but I do cherish moments like this. Every time I step into this little village, I feel as if the time has stopped or rather like I have just travelled in time. It's such a charming place! I h…
