Cvijet od tkanine 5 / Fabric flower 5


Kako napraviti ovaj cvijet od tkanine sam vidjela na prekrasnom blogu Krpice i konci. Zapravo, ona je latice malo više borala, pa zapravo možete vidjeti kako mali detalj čini razliku. (Njen tutorijal je kada kliknete na njenu sliku - dolje)






Blog Krpice i konci is great place where I sow how to make this fabric flower. (for her tutorial, enter her picture - up, but come back :) ) 


Prvo, boja tkanine... Zapravo ću vam reći i kako obojati tkaninu u ovu žuto-smeđo-narančastu boju. Krpice su bile potpuno bijele. Za prošli Uskrs smo bojali jaja u ljuski od kapule (crvenog luka), i dio jaja je bio zamotan ovim bijelim krpicama. Nakon 20 ak minuta dobile su ovu boju, i boja je ostala i nakon pranja.


First things first. I will share how did I dyed this fabric. Fabric was white until last Easter. We dyed eggs in shell of the onion, for some reason, there were this fabric in that colored water (for about 20 min). So, it become... like this.


A priču o cvijetu će vam ispričati slike...
For flower tutorial - just follow the photos.




Razlika u boranju (moje-gore, krpice i konci-dolje)
The diference in ruffling (mine is up, Krpice i konci is down)





Hvala Antonija što si me inspirirala na ovaj cvijet!!!

Tvrdoglava torba / Stubborn Tohoku Tote Bag

Ucreate svaki mjesec ima neki projekt kada podijeli neki tutorial, kroj, uzorak i pozove ostale blogere da po uzoru na taj projekt naprave nešto sami. Na početku sljedećeg mjeseca objavi slike onih koji pošalju fotografije svojih uradaka. U rujnu je projekt na izazovu "Create With Me" bila torba. Tohoku torba. I Am Momma - Hear Me Roar je podijelila kroj i tutotial kako napraviti Tohoku torbu. (Kada kliknete na sliku sa sivkastom torbom otvoriti će vam se originalni post na kojemu možete skinuti kroj za ovu torbu i pratiti detaljni tutorial). I naravno, ja sam odlučila okušati se i napraviti jednu jesensku Tohoku torbu. I bila bi to obična Tohoku torba, kakvih sada ima puno, da nije posebna... A posebna je jer je jako, jako tvrdoglava i svojevoljna. Uglavnom, krajem devetog mjeseca sam poslala ovu gore fotografiju i bila je na Ucreate Galeriji. A zašto je ja objavljujem sada poslije mjesec dana? E tu počinje priča moje Tohoku torbe.



Ucreate thought it would be fun to have an online craft group where we create the same craft, using the same tutorial once a month. Tutorial for September shared I Am Momma - Hear Me Roar. She has pattern and tutorial for Tohoku Tote Bag. (Link is on the photo). I decided to make one autumnal bag for my self. It would be just another ordinary Tahoku Bag, if it isn't special... And, it is special becouse it is stubborn and spoiled. Anyway, at the and of September I sent photo of my bag and it was on Ucreate Gallery. Why do I publish it whole month later? That's where my Tohoku Bag story begins..



Nekoliko je stvari koje želim naglasit:
  • Cijelu svoju torbu sam sašila ručno. Molim lijepo, oni koji nemaju šivaću mašinu sada više nemaju nikakvu izliku što ne šiju. (Najprije nisam mogla doći do mašine, a kada sam napokon uspjela, pokvarila se)
  • Prvi put u životu sam radila po kroju. Znam da je kroj jako jednostavan, ali sam ga uspjela zeznit pa sam na kraju mrvicu morala "povlačit i natezat" :) ali se ipak sve lijepo poklopilo (da, ima i postavu).
  • Prvi put u životu sam koristila frizelin. Ovdje sam naišla na problem, jer je Cheri sa "I Am Momma..." koristila nešto za utvrditi tkaninu. Iskreno, moj engleski je opet zablistao pa sam ja pretpostavila da je taj "interfacing" zapravo frizelin. Isto se lijepi peglom. Valjda sam koristila pravu stvar, ali ipak mi se čini da je njena torba puno čvršća. Kako bilo, ja sam prvi put šila sa frizelinom. (Kao veliki majstor, mogu objasniti za sve one koji ne znaju što je frizelin. To je tkanina koja se vrućom peglom zalijepi za drugu tkaninu kako bi je učvrstila. S time se učvršćuju koleti od košulja - barem su mi tako rekli)
  • Kada sam poslala fotografiju na Ucreate, torba još nije bila gotova. Trebalo je još opšiti gornji rub i prišiti ručke. (Ako pogledate malo bolje, vidjeti ćete da na najgornjoj slici nema toga šava). Mislila sam da to neće biti problem, ali tada je torba odlučila pokazati svoju ćud.

A few things I want to highlight:
  • I did all sewing without my sewing machine. Yes, It is all hand-sewn. There are no more excuses for those who don't have sewing machine. It is posible to do it anyway. (at first, I could't get to my sewing machine. Later, it broke)
  • This is first time that I did something following pattern. I know that it is simple pattern, but I managed to make mistake. So there was some pulling, but it at the end, I succeed to put it all together.
  • This is first time that I used "interfacing". Well, actually, I'm not quite sure what was it, but lets say that it was interfacing :) .  
  • When I had to send my photo to Ucreate, it wasn't finish. I sent it anyway. I had to sew straps, and hem. (If you look closer on first photo, you'll se that there isn't upper hem on it.) I tought that won't be problem, but than my bag show it character.


Prvo je složila ručke da ih zašijem ovako: (na prvi pogled ne izgleda strašno, ali ju je nemoguće ovako nosit)

First, Tohoku arranged handles on this way so I sew them like this: (at first, it doesn't look terrible, but it is impossible to wear it like this)

Nakon što sam sve rašila, i ponovno zašila, opet je petljala po ručkama:

After I tear that upper hem, and hemed once again, my bag played with those straps again:

Napokon, sam je ozbiljno upozorila da se upristoji i sve je ipak završilo na svome mjestu. Sada se malo ljuti pa nije htjela pozirati za neku pristojnu sliku. Ali, naučit ću je da se mora pristojno ponašati i ovih dana stiže barem jedna slika sa dnevnog svjetla.


Finally, I seriously warned it to start behaving, and eventually, everything end up in its place. Now a it is little stubborn and it refused to pose for a decent picture. But, I'll teach it that it must behave it self. You can expect at least one image on natural light, just wait a day or two.

Balzam za usne / Lip Balm


Napravila sam "domaći" balzam, labelo... Ne znam koliko će ovaj post biti koristan, jer nisam ništa mjerila. Sve je onako od oka. Pčelinji vosak i maslinovo ulje. To su svi sastojci.


I made homemade Lip Balm. I don't think that you'll find this post very usefull, becouse, I didn't measure anything. But, I'm going to share it anyway. All I used are beeswax and olive oil.



Teško je oprati posudu u kojoj se topio vosak, zato sam ga topila u čistoj limenci.

It is hard to wash pot in wich wax was melted. That's why I used clean can for melting.


Istopila sam vosak na laganoj vatri i u njega sam dolila maslinovo ulje. Čini mi se da je omjer bio otprilike 1:1. I mislim da ću sljedeći put dodati i nekakav maslac (od kokosa ili neki sličan), da mi ipak sve na kraju bude malo mekše.

I melted beeswax (on low heat). In melted beeswax I poured olive oil. Ratio was something like 1:1. Maybe, for next time, I could use some kind of butter (like coconut or something). I would be happier if it become little bit softer.


Dok je smjesa još tekuća, ulijte je u posudicu (prazna kutija od nekakvog melema). Boja mi se nije nimalo sviđala, ali srećom, kada se ohladila postala je baš onakva kakvu sam i očekivala.

While mixture is still liquid, pour it into the container (empty pot of some kind of balm). I didn't like that color, but, when it become cold, color turned out really nice.


Pustila sam je da se ohladi i dobila sam svoje "domaće" labelo. Sada točno znam što koristim i znam da je sto posto zdravo!

I let it dry, and that's how I get my homemade lip balm. Now, I know what am I using, and I know that it is completely healthy!

DIY Prsten / DIY Ring

Spajalica, kliješta i to je sve...
Svakoj curi treba nešto malo romantično i slatko...
Zapravo, spajalica se malo oštećivala dok sam je savijala. Bilo bi bolje da sam koristila neku kvalitetniju žicu. Ali s obzirom da mi je cilj iskoristiti ono što već imam, baš sam zadovoljna. I guštam nositi ovaj moj najnoviji prsten :)


Inspiracija sa Pinteresta (koja košta 34 $) 
Inspiration from Pinterest (which costs 34 $)


Paperclip, pliers, and that's all ...
Every girls needs a little bit romance...

In fact, the paperclip tended to damage while I was bent it. It would be better if I used a higher quality wire. But since my goal was to reuse what I already have (give new life to ordinary things), I'm satisfied. I enjoy wearing this ring :) (ups, rings - I couldn't help my self)







Napravit ću ja i ljepši, samo čekajte :)


I'm going to make it nicer, just wait :)

Išla sam u goste! / I went to visit Somday Crafts

Ok, ovo je stvarno velika stvar! Michelle me ugostila na svojoj stranici Somday Crafts. Zapravo, ja sam stvarno veeeliki početnik u svim ovim rukotvorinama, i inače, ovakvi početnici nemaju tu priliku. Ali, Michelle je puno čula i o Hrvatskoj i o ratu pa je najviše zbog toga bila tako ljubazna i ponudila mi mlijeko i kekse na svom blogu. Budući da je ipak to velika stvar, potrudila sam se i na njenom blogu sam napravila tutorial kako napraviti ove prekrasne leptire. Pa skočite tamo i vidite. (Pa se poslije razgledavanja vratite :) )


Ok, this is big deal! Michelle hosted me on her blog Somday Crafts. I know that I probably didn't deserve that, but she was so kind. Sorry for my little broken english :) For my guest project I made this butterfly. I'm very proud on it. It is one of first things that I came up on my own.



Welcome to visitors from Someday Crafts, make yourself at home :)

Mašna / Hair Bow

Ovo još nisam probala. Ali jedva čekam, meni se jaaako sviđa. Hvala na uputama abeautifulmess.typepad.com. Cure, guštajte!

1.Počnite s labavim repom. 
2-3. Uzmite gumicu i provucite kosu do pola. 
4. Okrenete rep na drugu stranu i ponovite, ostavljajući mali rep ostatka.  
5. Uzmite taj preostali repić, preklopite preko sredine, i ukosnicom učvrstite na mjestu. Ukosnicama pričvrstite obje strane mašne. Malo namjestite dok ne dobijete upravo ono što želite!



1.Start with a loose pony tail. 
2-3. Take the rubber band (or pony tail holder) and pull the hair through half-way. 
4. Flip the tail to the other side and repeat, leaving a small tail remaining.  
5. Take the tail, fold over the middle, and pin in place. From underneath pin both sides of the "bow" in place. Tug on the loops until you have a perfect, messy bow!


Stavila sam i video cure koja ovu mašnu radi na malo drugačiji način. Hm, hm, valjda nam bura i jugo neće pokvarit frizure :)

I'm shareing a video of a girl Andrea. She makes hair bow on a little bit different way. Girls, enjoy!

Pom-pom naušnice / Pom-pom earrings

Zima još nije počela ali je ja želim dočekati spremna. Kad ova bura zapuše, možda me koji komadić vune malo i spasi :) iako, ne vjerujem. Uglavnom, što su moji prsti sada složili?! Opet sam se zaigrala sa pom-ponima. Onim malima. Koje smo naučili praviti ovdje. I napravila sam si naušnice. Znam da ću ih nositi. I jedva čekam. Možda samo sredinu obojam u neku drugu boju. 


It is not a winter yet. But I'm going to be prepared. Maybe some wool will save me... What did I make now?! I'm playing with pom-poms, again. We learn how to make them here. Hope that you like my new pom-pom earrings. (I hope that those little one are called like that)

Prvo ću s vama podijeliti jedan trik (ako se to može tako zvati). Pom-pone je lakše zavezati i budu čvršći ako se ne vežu vunom nego nekim čvršćim. Npr. meni je puno bolje ispalo sa zubnim koncem. Da. Dobro ste pročitali. na donjoj slici lijevi je zavezan vunom, a desni koncem, primjeti se razlika.

I have trick to share (if you can call it like that). Pom-poms are easier to bend with dental floss. They are tougher.

Napravite dva mala pom-pona. Jednake veličine. Škarama odrežete sve viškove.

Make two little pom-poms. They have to be same size. Cut of anything that is excess.

Ove plastične naušnice sam našla na sniženju jaaako jeftino. Ali funkcionirale bi bilo kakve na ovu shemu. Kako se ono zovu, medicinske? Uglavnom, samo ih provučete kroz pom-ponove. Ako ne napravite preguste pom-ponove, neće vam niti malo smetati na uhu.

I found those little red earrings on sale. Perfect for this my project. Just, punch them through the pom-poms. And that's it! You have your brand new earrings :)

Pom-pom obruč / Pom-pom headband

Ljeto je moje doba. A kako bih preživila ove hladnije dane, moram pronaći nešto dobro i u njima. I pronašla sam nešto za što ljeto nekako nije. A to su pom-poni. Pronašla sam na internetu kako napraviti male, male pom-poniće, a tu je tutorial kako ja pravim one malo veće.


I'm summer tipe of girl. Summer is my time. That's why I have to find something nice in those colder times, just to survive. And, I found pom-poms. I'm shareing how do I make them. And I found how to make those little ones. So, I'm shareing those too.



Htjela sam napisat kako ne postoji ništa što ne možemo napraviti od pom-pona, ali ipak priznajem da postoji. Ja ću vam danas dati samo jednu ideju. Obruč za kosu sa pom-ponima. Ja sam koristila crnu i žutu, ne samo jer su nekako jesenski, nego jer nisam imala drugu boju :) 

I meant to write that there is no that thing that couldn't be made with pompons. Well, I have to admit that there are. But, I'm giving you an idea what could we do with them. Make a pom-pom headband. (those colours are autumnal, but I used them becouse I didn't have any other :) )
Hope you like it :)
