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.

The basically idea in my projects is – to be funny, but not scary.

Here is scarecrow Birdey.

Hi 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.

Why I do that?

Because my hands never rest.

More precisely – they rest when they do something.

Then my hands talk between themselves and with me.

You can see the results of these conversations, here or on etsy.com

Enjoy!:)

Because I am never bored. How about you? 😉

Because life is art.

Be creator of yours.

Cheerful Lady’s Backpack

I made this backpack for me. The reason was family summer trip to the west coast in the states of Washington and Oregon.

Cheerful backpack

It is similar to a purse, but the most convenient to use for vacation activities. I also use it for a walk in the park or a picnic somewhere.
For this project I used 99% recycled materials – jeans, stretch cotton pants, cotton sheets, handles, zipper, buttons. Only thread, velcro and batting are the new materials.

It was fun to completed all these materials and create the design. The realization of this project was relaxation time for me.
In backpack, there is a special room for a bottle of water because water is a very important thing for our health. It should be with us everywhere. Here are some details of the backpack:

 Details of backpackI love my cheerful backpack and hope, it can be an inspiration for some of your future projects. 🙂

I will be very happy if you share them with me. 🙂

Thank you! 🙂

I love Halloween

I am glad that Halloween is near, again.

I love Halloween because in it  mixed scary and funny, and it is the reason about many ideas for creation.

What do you say to have fabric box? Its applique brings Halloween spirit and it is multifunctional.  You can put it pot with plant or candy.

Different Knitted Solutions For The Home

Always I prefer to make something if I can, instead to buy it. My handmade things often look like crazy, funny or fondly but them character brings just atmosphere of warm and love at 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.

Here is my funny solution:
