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.

  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

TWO WAYS TO STYLE A SCARF (SUSTAINABLE FASHION FILES)

Today I'll show you two ways to style a scarf: one is by wrapping it around your headband and the other by using it as a belt for your dress.  I'm also going to link up old posts with more ideas for styling this scarf, offering you about a dozen ideas. The first idea is a common one. Wearing a belt around your dress is an easy way to accentuate your waist. The other outfit proposal shows a fresh styling trick: wearing your scarf wrapped around your headband. Yes, you read that right. This is actually such an easy way to make the most out of your headband(s). I own only one headband but by wrapping different scarves around it, it seems like I have a dozen of them.  As for the two outfits I'm going to show to you, they are both summer ones. The colour palette for these looks is pretty neutral, but I jazzed it up by choosing printed white items. I do like the freshness that the white colour offers, but as a lover of prints I tend to compromise by opting for printed white ite…

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…

SUMMER TO AUTUMN OUTFITS FEATURING A VINTAGE BLACK MAXI DRESS

Today I'll show you seven ways  to wear a black maxi dress. This beautiful vintage dress was gifted to me by a family member. I don't own many solid black maxi dresses (probably because I'm addicted to bold prints and colours). I do own quite a few little black dress (because a LBD is such a classical piece) but not that many black ones in maxi length. In fact, I believe this is the only plain black maxi dress I own. I find it really easy to style. I treat this maxi as a neutral piece and I wear it all year round. I actually added embroidery to it (it's a hobby of mine) but the embroidery detail isn't that big (for now) so I tend to style it as a plain black dress. By that I mean that I like to have fun with accessories when I wear this dress. I often wear it with statement necklaces I made myself or similar eye-catching accessories. Anyhow, I figured that with the summer to autumn transitioning that is going on right now, it would make sense to show you some tran…
