DIY of the day (how to make an eco friendly necklace?) / Napravi sam projekt dana (kako napraviti ekološku ogrlicu?)




Well, obviously the best way to make an eco friendly necklace is to use either organic or recycled materials. I made this necklace  using the latter, that is,  extra fabric from one red denim skirt, little bit of cardboard, a bit of fabric old pillowcase and red acrylic paint

The base of the necklace is made from red denim, I just tied them together. The necklace  has one big heart attached to it. The heart you see is made from cardboard and it is covered first with white fabric from an old pillow case (sewn over it, not glued to it). Finally, I decorated the heart with acrylic paints. 

That's it! About 15 minutes of work and you end up with a really unique necklace. Will you try it?

Očito je najbolji način za napraviti ekološki prihvatljivu ogrlicu koristiti ili organske ili reciklirane materijale. Napravila sam ovu ogrlicu koristeći posljednje tj. malo tkanine koja mi je ostala od jedne crvene suknje od jeansa, malo kartona, malo tkanine s stare jastučnice i crvenu akrilnu boju.

Baza ogrlice je napravljena od crvenog jeansa, jednostavno sam povezala trakice zajedno. Ogrlica ima jedno veliko srce koje možete vidjeti na slikama, a napravljeno je od kartona koje je prekriven prvo tkaninom s stare jastučnice (ušivenom ne zaljepljenom). Na kraju sam ukrasila srce crvenom akrilnom bojom. 

To bi bilo to. Petnaestak minuta posla i dobijete posve jedinstveno ogrlicu. Hoćete li pokušati?

  7. Dear Ivana, if I would have as impressing skils in DIY than you than I would try it for sure! Love the result - not only because your DIY necklace is red, which means in the favourite colour of both of us :) Hopefully you have now better weather ... here in Bavaria it is sunny but honestly more chilly than warm as in the mountains we have still (and again) snow. Happy weekend!

  8. This is a great way to use extra scraps of fabric. I'm going to have to look in my closet to see if I have anything to use to try to make one.

  10. I thought, upon first glance, it might be a bikini you have made :) The necklace is quite lovely though! xoxo

  11. It would be nice to see it on you, hopefully soon! This is a nice way to express one's creativity and to give a second life to those materials. I too like eco-friendly pieces, there are a few necklaces and earrings made of recycled paper in my collection as well as of bamboo.

  14. This is very clever. Would also be nice to see you wear it. I almost bought a pair of red denim jeans in the charity shop, you'd reminded me, wish I had! X

  19. That's a great idea and I love how it looks! I tend to make raggedy flower brooches out of fabric scraps and have a bracelet I've been intending to make for some time now with a particular fabric scrap. xo

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…
