Deep fryer pot to flower pot

My mom made this pretty flower pot from fryer,after it broken.
She decorated it with old belt,one flower,and satin ribbon.
It was easy,just 2 pieces of fabric sewn together and hot glue gun to hold other stuff in place.

Clothing labels

I ordered 300 clothing labels few days ago from a company in Sarajevo(if somenone from BiH is reading my blog and needs labels,contact me for more informations ;) ).I got them yesterday.They are better then i thought they would be.There are so much great tutorials for making your own labels,but i couldn't find materials,so i bought them.I got 300 pieces for 20$.
My handmade stuff will look even better,i think.
I am going to do something creative(i am preparing some free patterns) and spend those labels ASAP.

Sunny day

Yesterday was L's birthday,and we really enjoyed.She was so funny,she was dancing,singing,acting...

She got a new tricycle,we couldn't take her off when it was bedtime.
Cake was awfull(i had some problems,my mixer broke,so i couldn't make whipped cream).I bought instant whipped cream,and off course it melted very fast.Then i made some sugar  paste and covered a cake.It looked much better,but not good enough to be sattisfied,if you ask me.But guests liked it(and my baby),and said it was delicious.
All in all,we had really great time.
This morning,she woke up,and first thing she sad was "bike".She is acting so nice,that i couldn't believe what i was seeing.She was in the good mood for a whole day.She didn't want to sleep today,but that's ok with me,as far as she doesn't scream and cry for everything.Now she is acting like a big girl.
We took a walk today.It was warm and sunny day,perfect for running and jumping(and barbique).

See those cute white pants(please ignore the dirt)?I found them at ZARA for 1,5$.They were all white and i wanted to change something.So,i took acrylic paint and painted a flower and dots on pockets.
Now i like them even more.
And i found some great ballet flats for about 2,5$(hurray,finally something for me :P).

Sewing Wednesday

Today was one of those days when everything goes wrong.I made horrible lunch,broke my sugar pot,L destroyed some fabric pieces with scissors,things i made today weren't good as i was expecting.
Only that turned out good are vinyl bib and pretend play tea bags.
I found this vinyl at supermarket and it was actually cheaper than i thought it would be.
She started jumping when she saw these tea bags,and asked me to make her a cup of tea :).
I make all stuff from my patterns,i am planning to sell them one day (soon,i hope).I am working on some pretend play patterns these days ,like doll bassinet,utensils,boys tool set etc.
Also,i am working on baby and kids lazy bag pattern.Oh,if only day would last longer...

New baby pants

I haven't finished a lot of things I was planning for last week.We are renovating our (almost) 100 years old house,walls were peeling off,so we had to paint them again.The reason we are doing it now is because L's birthday is soon and I didn't want people to look at those ugly walls.Workers have been in our house for 2 days,so Lea and I went to my parents.We found some good stuff at second hand store,but we couldn't find a ballet flats for her birthday(I still have few days but...).
   Yesterday,we came back home.We brought spring and summer clothes from attic(we have all clothes and shoes until the age of 4),organized it,and cleaned all house.I was planning to sew for a few hours today,but when we got up and when i saw how beautifull day was,i decided to go for a walk.We spent a lovely time together,except our umbrella stroller broke,so we had to fix it every 10 minutes.When we got home,i really wanted to stay outside with L,and enjoy sunny day.
She was running all the time,and i took a few great photos(she is always in move,so sometimes it's a bit hard to get good photo).

Oh,i love this cute smile :)

My blanket is not finished yet,i ran out of yarn.
I hope i can finish it for the weekend,when i buy few skeins of yarn.I actually liked crochet.So,i tried to make a baby skirt.
Than i got another idea,crochet diaper insert.
Now i see i should use thicker yarn and needle.But it's fine this way,it still can be diaper insert.
I also made a nursing pillow cover yesterday,i like it so much that i had to share it.

W.I.P. Monday

I started to crochet,a baby blanket.It's my first "bigger" project.
I made this for about an hour and a half.

It's about 40" wide.

Silhouette on fabric tutorial

Here is quick tutorial on how to make a silhouette pillow,or picture,or anything You want.

-Picture You want to be on fabric
-Paper sheets (to protect floor or furniture)
-Fabric paint

These little hands were very helpfull

1.Print picture or draw it,like I did(my printer is not functioning)
2.Cut inside and place paper on fabric
3.Remove paper and leave paint to dry.
Now You have picture.You can put it in a frame,or make anything You want.
I made a pillow.
Because I painted my daughter,she calls this pillow "Lea" pillow.It is great decoration for her bed.
