How to make a DIY poncho? Kako sam napraviti pončo?

This is my first official visit to Buna this Autumn, but hopefully it is not my last one. I went there this Saturday, to relax after a rather hectic week. We were fortunate enough to be graced with sunny weather. After a rather gloom and rainy morning, the sun unexpectedly came out just as we arrived there. This was a nice surprise and it basically meant that we could hike to heart's content, which we did. 

We spotted a few interesting birds but I'm not sure about their names, I'll have to check it out, all I can say is that I haven't seen them before. Anyhow, for this trip I had worn a rather warm puffer, but after seeing the sun is there to stay, I ditched the puffer and wore this DIY poncho instead....and that brings us to the topic of today's post. 

How to make a DIY poncho? 
The simplest way is to buy a tablecloth and cut the opening for your head. It is the easiest way to go about it. I added a bit of colourful cord around the opening, just to make it more fun, but that is all I really did. Simple as that. All it took to get this poncho was five minutes. If I didn't decide to sew the printed cord around the opening, it would have taken me less than a minute to do it. Remember this illustration of mine? Well, it looks like I finally have my dream poncho now.

Ovo je moj prvi službeni posjet Buni ove jeseni, ali nadam se da nije i zadnji. Išla sam tamo prošle subote da bi se malo opustila nakon poprilično napornoga tjedna.  Bili smo sretni rekla bi, jer dočekalo nas je sunčano vrijeme. Nakon kišovitoga i tmurnoga jutra, sunce je neočekivano izašlo baš kada smo stigli tamo. To je bilo lijepo iznenađenje i značilo je da možemo šetati do mile volje, što i jesmo.

 Primijetili smo nekoliko zanimljivih ptica, nisam sigurna kako se zovu, morat ću to istražiti, sve što mogu reći je da ih nikad prije nisam vidjela. Uglavnom, za ovaj izlet sam obukla toplu debelu jaknu, ali nakon što sam vidjela da će sunce ostati, zamijenila sam jaknu ovim pončom koji sam sama napravila...što nas dovodi do teme današnje objave.

Kako sam napraviti pončo?
Najjednostavniji način je kupiti stoljnjak i odrezati otvor za glavu. To je najjednostavniji način. Ja sam dodala i malo šarene trake oko otvora, tek toliko da bude malo zanimljivije, ali to je stvarno sve što sam napravila. Tako jednostavno.  Za ovaj pončo mi je trebalo pet minuta, a da nisam šivala traku s uzorkom okolo otvora, trebalo bi mi manje od minute.  Sjećate se ove moje ilustracije? E sada, konačno imam pončo koji sam željela.

  9. Sviđa mi se ideja kako smisliti pončo :) (ja bih možda uzela neki deblji, teži materijal).
    Super ti je frizura!

    1. ovaj je materijal zapravo deblji nego što izgleda, onako grub je jer je stoljnjak, ali je ok kada se nosi preko nečega....Razmišljala sam i o nekoj debljoj varijanti...možda budem probala prenamijeniti neku staru deku.<3

  14. You look very beautiful Ivana! The poncho is sweet, although here is to cold to wear it... These ducks are also lovely, especially this black and white duck. Very original! And the river is awesome :D

  15. Mislim da je ovo najjedonstavniji, a najefektniji DIY koji sam videla! Svaka ti čast na ideji. Tako nešto bih i ja valjda znala da naoravim koja nisam posebno vešta u tim stvarima. Mnogo volim kad neko nosi pončo, a i sama sam u poslednje vreme rado nosila onaj moj braon sa resicama. Možda neki sledeći bude baš tako jedan eksperiment. Definitvno ću gledati na stolnjake drugim očima ;) Predivno izgledaš i ta mešavina kockica na ponču i teksas suknje je baš pun pogodak. Meni je uvek drago kad se vratiš na to mesto. Uvek vrtim slike nekoliko puta i uživam, skoro kao da sam i ja tamo. Jednoga dana, nadam se :) <3

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.

WINTER DESTINATIONS HERZEGOVINA: MOUNTAIN PRENJ, RUJISTE

A HERZEGOVIAN WINTER FAIRY TALE

What are some of best winter destinations in Herzegovina? That is the questions that I plan to answer with a series of posts. To start with, I'm bringing you a bit of winter magic and taking you with me to mountain Rujiste (proper spelling Rujište, pronunciation  Ruyshte) located on mountain Prenj. This mountain is only a short drive away from Mostar city, which makes it ideal for a little winter getaway. 
I've always loved mountains, so when we went for a little drive and ended  up here, I was ecstatic. Winter fairy tale coming my way, that's something I didn't mind at all. I'm a big fan of hiking (as some of you may know). Not that I did a lot of hiking here (I'll explain why later). Anyhow, this is a great place for visiting, whether or not you plan to hike. Just chilling or photograph taking is fine too. For me personally, there is just something about the combination of high altitude and fresh air that makes my heart sing. …

HOW TO WEAR MORE WHITE IN WINTER IN FIVE SIMPLE STEPS

It seems that white in winter is a real trend nowadays. Nobody lives following that rule 'no white after labor day' anymore. Today I've prepared some style tips and outfit information for you, because I do believe that white can be a great way to refresh our winter style. I'll be happy if I inspire you to give white a try. Anything from a white bag to white shoes can make your winter outfits more fun. So, why not give this lovely colour a chance? Here are my five easy steps to start wearing more white in winter right now. Most of these don't even require you do any shopping as I'm sure you'll be able to find at least some of these items in your closet. Sometimes it is all about reexamining what we already have in our closets. 


1. START WITH ACCESSORIES 

If you find wearing white overwhelming, you can always try baby steps. Start with white shoes (super trendy right now) and/or bag and move from there. Next thing you can do is try other white accessories, su…

READING UPDATE, NEW FINDS: MARIO VARGAS LLOSA AND RAGNAR JONASSON

I did a lot of reading this January& February. I even discovered two new authors that I plan to follow more closely, so I'm really happy about that. The same thing happened last year, if I remember correctly. There is something about the start of the new year that makes me motivated to read even more. As Asimov wisely said, self-education is best education. Not that I don't believe in formal education. I've spent a lot of money and time on my formal education. I've also invested in different courses and workshops. It is always easier to study with a good teacher. As someone who has worked as a teacher, I can see many benefits of standard education. However, it is also important to work on our education ourselves because we are the ones who know ourselves best (or at least we should) so we know on what areas we should work on. The way I interpret Asimov words is not a critique of formal education, but a call for continuous education. I'm a strong believer that …
