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.

Say “I Love You” to Yoursef

Approaching the day of the lovers. Actually, it is a day of the love messages.
Do you love yourself?

Here is a small creative assignment – write a love message to yourself.

Probably, it is easier you to write to a loved one than to yourself but let’s try.

It would be good to share it because it can be helpful to another. Yes, that’s right – your message to yourself can be instructive to another.

Let’s try to be kind to yourself, and explain your own love to yourself!

That is healthy act, let’s learn to do it!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

With love to myself and to you,

Iva

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.
