Scrap Fabric pt. 5

I hope you made your fabric flowers because I’ve found sooo many wonderful inspirations out there!

First thing I thought of were necklaces. Especially since I already made the denim necklace at the bottom.

Image

And you have to have a bracelet to go with it…

Image

… and a ring.

Image

I also found these really great flower belts. I like the idea of them with a wedding dress. It looks so dainty and it really brings that little something extra to the dress, don’t you agree?

Image

A wonderful gift, especially for little girls is a headband.

Image

You can embellish your old T-shirt.

Image

Some other ideas is to make a key chain, put them on a pillowcase, a hair clip or a hair elastic, string them up on a cord and make a party decoration, make a bouquet… When I saw some of the wedding bouquets it made me question is a real flower bouquet really necessary? They look that elegant!

Image

Image

What I usually do is just make them into a brooch. That way I can get the most out of it and put it anywhere I like. I accessorize my bag with it, wear it in my hair, on a T-shirt… Basically, just put it anywhere I like!

For the end here is a tut on making these lovely flower decorations.

What do you think? Did I leave anything out?! 🙂

Till tomorrow! 🙂

Scrap Fabric pt. 3

I hope you remember when I wrote about my wish list Croatian Startas, because today I’m writing about another Cro product – Jolie Petite!

They make little girls and boys applique T/shirts, dresses, scarfs and other clothing, and each item is hand made which is rare today.

Image

If the lady on the pictures is familiar to you it is because it is a famous fashion model Ljupka Gojić (maybe you also remember her from the 90s Pantene Pro-V commercials, she was their model).

Her mum started the company and it grew to be a family business. 

Image  Image 

 

The reason I’m writing about this is because it is also a great scrap fabric project – appliques!

Jolie Petite isn’t anything new on the market and crafters have been doing applique for a long time, but hey… They made a brand out of it!

You just need to figure out what you want to do.

Image

Put it on your T-shirts, dresses, scarfs… Onesies are really adorable! Spice up your totes and bags, pillow cases or put it on a canvas for a wall decor.

All of these are also great gifts! I know I would be happy if someone gave me something like this! 🙂

Spring is here and summer is close. Why not make this bag ? Click on the pic for the tut.

For the end here is a great tutorial from Sew Like My Mom on applique (link on pic).

What do you think?

Would you buy Petite Jolie or make one yourself?

 

And in case you missed my first two parts of Scrap Fabric What To Do, here they are Part 1 and Part 2.

Happy Sunday! 🙂

Scrap Fabric pt. 2

Back to the scraps.

A good way to use your scraps is to make pincushions!

There are so many adorable inspirations out there that I wanna make all just so I can look at them! *love*

Image

You can make classic square ones, insert some colourful panels in, make a circle, pumpkin, pear, a mouse…! Just about anything! Put them in an embroidery hoop, a cup or on top of a jar and keep buttons or something else in it!

Don’t forget to stuff  it with scraps of course! Cut it up into smaller pieces and fill it in.

I also found this pic of a pincushion for the machine and had to immediately make one! It is very handy to have it right by.

Image

If you don’t want it on your machine make one long one and keep it around.Image

 

And here is a collage of mobile sleeves about which my first post was about.

Image

The big picture of the green one was my inspiration, but I also really like the little bear! ^^ And the idea of using an old tie for it.

How do you use your scrap fabric?

Leave a comment! 🙂

Scrap Fabric What To Do? pt. 1

When you’re sewing you always have left over scrap fabric.
And I’m such a hamster! I don’t want to throw away anyting! So the scraps just keep on growing and growing… What do to with it?

I decided to start doing little projects where I use scrap fabric only.

The first thing I chose to do was this mobile cozy.

image

image

What I like about it is that I can put away the head phones so the wires don’t get tangled (don’t you just hate when that happens?) and I always know where they are.

This is only a prototype so to say. Next one will ne much nicer.

I used thin felt and elastic. You only need to measure your mobile so you know the size and sew the sides.
Add some decorations from scraps or buttons if you’d like or just leave it as it is. The whole thing is done in 5 min!

Now go ahead, make your own and share! 🙂

Denim scrap necklace

Continuing with my love of working with denim scraps since I have a lot of that now after the wall organizer.

An easy and short project.

Just make a template of a circle (mine was 4 cm in width) and cut out circles out of the denim. Once you’ve got them, fold them in half twice and glue with hot glue gun. You’ll have lots of petals now. Glue them to a circle felt so you get a flower and then glue the flowers onto the final piece of felt which is in the shape you wish the necklace to be. And finally, sew/glue a chain/a piece of satin ribbon so you can tie it.

And voila, you have a beautiful necklace!

Image

You can also make it a broche, a hair clip or something else. Whatever you want! 

Hope the instructions were clear. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate! 🙂

 

Ponoćno šivanje

Mislila sam staviti novi post tek kasnije kada ću imati vremena napraviti neki malo bolji i opširniji tutorijal, ali nakon što sam prošlu noć šivala do jedan ujutro, rekoh Zašto ne? Sretna sam kako je ispalo i htjela bih to podijeliti s nekime.
(ako itko čita ovaj blog?! HalllOOooo? Ima li koga?! Anyone? Just one?? Ili sam sama? :/ lol :))

Uglavnom, to whom it may concern!
Napravila sam cluth torbicu u kombinaciji starih traperica i materijala kojeg sam našla doma.

Image

Na žalost, još uvijek slikam mobitelom tako da slike nisu najbolje, ali nadam se da ću idući vikend stići u neki brzi shopping po novi fotić (pa ću sigurno i češće postati). Jeeej!

U donjem desnom kutu sam zapravo podstavu preokrenula van kako bih mogla uslikati džep koji je skroz pri dnu torbice i nisam znala kako bih ga drugačije uslikala.

Torbica nije preteška za napraviti, a meni se čini zgodnom i nadam se da će svidjeti i prijateljicama koje će ih dobiti za poklon. 🙂
