Sketch and DIY of the day / Skica i DIY dana

We always think we know better, but what is there to do but believe that someday we will really know better.
Uvijek mislimo kako znamo bolje, ali zaista što nam preostaje nego vjerovati da ćemo jednog dana zaista i znati bolje.

Hello! Today I'm sharing one sketch that is accompanied by a message and a DIY. The message on the sketch is pretty self explanatory. We often think we know better but then we realize that we don't. However, life is all about learning from our mistakes so there is nothing else to do but to try again and believe that some day we'll truly know better.

As far as DIY goes, it's pretty simple. I  have sewn these little hearts onto this striped top yesterday because I wanted to cover up little holes that were beginning to form on it. You know when you manage to find a cotton t-shirt that is really made from cotton and then you wash it a few times only to discover those annoying little holes forming? Well, here is a solution for it. A solution that is very low cost and not time consuming at all...In fact, all you need is a needle, thread, a bit of material and about five minutes of your time.

Zdravo! Danas s vama dijelim jednu skicu praćenu s porukom i uradi sam projektom. Poruka na skici je dosta jasna sama od sebe. Često mislimo kako znamo bolje ali onda shvatimo da nije tako. Međutim u životu učimo od pogrješaka tako da nemamo zapravo drugo rješenje nego pokušati ponovo i vjerovati da ćemo jednog dana doista znati bolje.

Što se tiče uradi sam projekta, jako je jednostavan. Jučer sam ušila ova mala srca na prugastu majicu jer sam željela pokriti rupice koje su se počele formirati na majici. Znate kada uspijete pronaći pamučnu majicu koja je stvarno pamučna i onda je operete par put samo da biste otkrili te iritirajuće rupice. Evo rješenja! Rješenje koje je vrlo povoljno i ne oduzima puno vremena. Zapravo sve što vam treba je igla, konac, malo materijala i oko pet minuta vašeg vremena. 


  1. I love the DIY, very creative. I have been thinking of doing something similar lately. I want to sew a huge heart onto a jumper. The illustration is very meaningful.

  26. Your sketch is very cool and I will take your message even deeper because I like it. What if, before we are born, we are allowed to give out future selves challenges in life in hopes they teach us what we need to know. Too deep for the comment section? Sounds like me :)

    All Things Bright and Lovely

  27. Your DIY is not only an excellent way to cover holes, but it's a great personal touch even without holes. It's not easy to get better.

  28. Majica izgleda predobro! Sviđa mi se kombinacija prugica i jedva je čekam vidjeti na tebi! :) Poruka dana mi se sviđa također, istina...

    Pusa Ivek!

  29. I adore DIYs like these & this is simply brilliant, Ivana! Who would've thought behind those pretty hearts are holes! xoxo

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…
