Patchwork without Cutting Tools

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.

First option

Next year, I took off the lining and made from the old patchwork topper new quilted table topper.

Remodel process

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.

With love,

Iva 🙂



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 .
