It was fun, love, and great desire to learn quilt.
I’ve been sewing and knitting for the past 30 years. I have sew skills and experience as an owner and designer of a fashion house but never make patchwork.
My first patchwork I made before Halloween 2012. I didn’t have special cutting tools but wanted to try. It was so difficult work but I started the project – Halloween patchwork table topper. I put lining from polyester fabric on the back side.
Next year, I took off the lining and made from the old patchwork topper new quilted table topper.
Soon, after first patchwork project I bought the basic tools. From two old shirts and a box I made doll’s bed to my granddaughter. It was my first experience with the full quilting process and using recycled materials.
I’m not afraid to remodel my life. Don’t afraid you too.
Recycled denim is one of my favorite materials. It’s matches with many colors and fabrics. I like the character of denim.
Often, I use it. Probably you remembering the aprons, purses, wine bottle covers, decorative pillow cover, made from recycled denim.
Now, I introduce quilted laptop case “Star wars”.
If you want to buy it, please visit Iva’s Art Etsy-shop.
I am proud with another item from recycled denim – Wall hanging jewelry organizer. Also, you can use it to organize other small things.

Thanks for your visit here.
Take care and love yourself. The life is art!

This is my first project with cutting tools. I was learning to use them in 2012 when I began to learn patchwork and quilt. The doll’s bed was surprise to my older granddaughter but now it is toy for my two granddaughters.
I used 3 old shirts as cotton fabric, filling, polyester batting, a box and here is the result:
The bed with the mattress
And the blanket with an applique
It was fun to create it and also my little girls have so much fun whenever they play with doll’s bed.
Create your own world!
Here’s an idea how to use old jeans. You can do many things from recycled denim and I’ll show you some of them in other posts. Now, I present children’s aprons. I made them to my two little granddaughters and one to my daughter because girls love to cook with their mom together. Wearing aprons, they have more fun in the kitchen.
As lining I used cotton fabric and recycled cotton printed sheet. The appliques are made also from the prints of the same cotton materials.

Welcome at my art house! 🙂
Now I show you some projects that I made as home decoration. They bring Halloween spirit at my home.
The basically idea in my projects is – to be funny, but not scary.
Here is scarecrow Birdey.
How do you feel?
– I feel very nice on this warm wall. I love my clothes. Here there are not rain and winds, there are two sweet girls and baby boy at home and they are happy to have me.
Here how was “born” Birdey :
Next is ghost Smiley.
How are you some days before Halloween?
– I am fine and so happy. I can’t wait Halloween evening when two little girls and baby boy will be here and say “trick or treat?” It’s gonna be a lot of fun :)))
Fabric pumpkins are so cute, too!
… And quilted wall hanging with printed sheet 🙂
For each of these projects, I used old clothes – jeans, pants, shirts. It was so fun and relaxation to created that.
Life is Art!

What are you need?
