Inspirations from Recycled Denim

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”.

Doll’s Bed from Recycled Materials

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:

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!

With love,

Aprons with Flowers from Recycled Denim

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.

Why is it lovely to have a pillow cover with a picture?

Pillows are an important part of our home decor and our rest at home. But they can be a wonderful memory about people, places and events. It will remember you about this matter every time when you see the pillow if you have it somewhere at home. Also, it is an unusual way to give this memory as a gift to someone. It means that this person, place or event is very important for you. Often these gifts are a great surprise because it is so exciting to see yourself or the memory on the pillow.
Here are some pillow covers by Iva’s Art House and their stories.

These pillow covers were make for Christmas gifts.

Reminder: Do not become attached to the pillow!

There is just loving memory, but your life is here and now. 🙂

Different Knitted Solutions For The Home

So, time for the different solutions in the kitchen.

This appearance of the box is good for the store but it is ugly for the kitchen.
