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 Pillows – Comfort and Impact

My funny and elegant pillows 🙂

The pillows are an important part of home decor . They give comfort at home . We sleep on a pillow in the bedroom and also use a pillow when we take a rest in the living room . Often we use a pillow in the car, in the plane or on the yard.
Where else ?
We choose the comfortable pillow  or  compatible it with the color of the sofa , of the room or of the curtains . And yet – the shape , the colors and the materials of the pillows affect on us. They can help us to be calm and relaxed . But it makes not only pillows . All the things around us influence over us.

Here I show you my handmade pillow covers . Each pillow has a title and it shows how impacts on me .

Christmas is knocking on the door

Christmas is a wonderful time. I love it ! 🙂
People express the best of themselves around Christmas. It’s time to create different things. What did Iva’s Art House ?

I like to use recycled materials. They are a great inspiration for me. I used recycled and new materials, and made ​​unconventional, but very nice Christmas stockings . The Christmas stocking is the most popular symbol after the Christmas tree.

A part of them

Table runners and placemates are part of the Christmas decorations in your home. Iva’s Art made ​​a small collection of them :

A red square - #3

Small Table Runner # 4

 Mod. # 1 - White, Long

I’m proud of wall hanging art quilt “Christmas Night“. It is a wonderful wall decoration .

Wall Hanging "Christmas Night"

The new non-traditional item by Iva’s Art is a sweet surprise for your loved ones. It is a special wall hanging Christmas decorations.

Non-Traditional Christmas Decoration

There are several ideas on how to use these pockets:

1) If you have two children at home, you can put in the pockets some candies or small present some days before Christmas (for 24 or less) as a sign from Santa that he is coming soon. This had become a tradition for my children that they follow-up to this day as adults with their kids. It is fun and brings the Christmas spirit to your home in morning.

2) You can write the name of your partner in life – husband, wife, girl- or boyfriend or fiance. Every day before Christmas, you can show your love with small present or simply a written message, such as:

You are the best thing that had ever happened to me!
I can’t imagine life without you!
You are the most important person to me.
You make me happy.
Thank you about your care!
…. Or all that your heart feels.

These thoughtful ideas can warm-up every soul and make the day special in the Christmas spirit.

This season you can buy also Christmas wine bottle costume.
