Vintage flowers bed cover-working progress

 

My dear followers,

I am writing this blog to show you my latest work. During the last few weeks, I had been working on one big order for a wedding gift.

The wedding gift order was for an intricate hand embroidered bed cover.  I took dozens of photos to show you details in working progress (as you will see below).

As the gift is a special custom made order, I met with the bride for a one on one consultation to find out more about her taste and what inspires her. We went through many colour swatches and different motifs she likes. I presented her with finished bed cover samples in a variety of styles. She quite liked the designs and was especially fond of bed covers with hand embroidery.  Generally in my designs I use embroidery for details, however bed covers that I design are more focused on the hand painting technique. When we finished our consultation, it was going to require laborious work by hand, but I was confident that the outcome will be terrific. I was convinced that she will fall in love with the finished product.

First, I did a sketch of all the details in their actual dimensions, as I do every time, and I  do recommend  this as the easiest way to start this type of work. I can straight away see what the final product will look like and if I need to add more details. I decided to make floral design with a a touch of vintage feel. As the bed cover is going to be used everyday,  but needs to make a statement, I put extra effort in creating a design that would reflect this need.

For this post I am going to show you the work in progress and in the following post I will share the finished product.  Hope you enjoy it!

Springtime ! ! !

Hello everyone

Spring is here !!! Today, I am really happy to show you some new interesting designs. I feel like a year is beginning with Spring, and that is why I feel so happy and inspired on spring time.

I have some very interesting new designs I want to show you and I just waited for the right time to write this post.

I am still working on some designs that I want to exhibit this year, and I am not going to show you that today, maybe soon :)

Today you can meet THE PATCHWORK BEAR

Patchwork bear

 

 

 

 

This bear was custom made for an exhibition ‘Bears- In honor of Spring’ , but unfortunately it wasn’t picked to be exhibit. I was kinda sad when I found out but I decided to move on and try to think positive. I worked very hard to make this bear and because of that I decided to put him on my Etsy shop. Maybe someone will like it and buy this cute patchwork bear. It’s made from 140 pieces of cotton fabrics and it’s stuffed just like a pillow, he is 100 cm tall. The idea was to make something interesting for children’s room but still can be used as a toy. This bear has his swing that he sitting on with four little stuffed bear friends who keep him company.

Now it’s available on my Etsy shop.

The second thing I want to show you on today’s post is something different from this bear but it’s still very decorative. I made this last year, but I didn’t finished till last month. I don’t know why and it’s not important. You can see this wall hanging now. It’s hand printed on a cotton fabric with my design. I used this print before on a bed cover and some pillows. I wanted to make something different from this print. It’s hand printed triptych wall decor. Squares are 20 cm x 20 cm. This is also available on my Etsy shop.

 

This is it for today. New blog post will be published soon.

I will try to write more often and to share everything that I am working on.

Say no to plastic bags – WEAR a TOTE BAG

What do you think about using a plastic bags? This is something I am trying to avoid for the past few months. Every time when I go to the grosery store I am trying not to take those awful plastic bags that you can get it at the cashier for free. I don’t know why I start thinking more about this, probably because here in Belgrade and whole Serbia we don’t recycle plastic bags and you can see many of them flying outside on a wind and some poor trees with so many plastic bags on. Some people just don’t care about this and that makes me sad. I know I can’t change them but I will try to do something.

Today I was with my friend at the grosery store and I got an interesting idea. Why to take a plastic bag and throw out later if you can buy a tote bag and use it when ever you need. I don’t say I am the first one who got this idea :) because I am not but this way I am trying to promote tote bags with my designs that you can buy on my Society 6 shop .. I am so claver ;)

You can see some of them here, and if you click on a picture the link will send you to that product.

This year will be 5th twitter art exhibition. I find out about this art exhibition on twitter, and I never explome more about this before. Last year I saw news about this open call and decided to read more about it. After I read what is all about I wanted to be part of this exhibtion. I made this postcard specialy for this exhibition . Read more about this #TwitterArtExhibition 

Twitter Art Exhibit: Moss is an international exhibition of original postcard art benefiting Home-Start Moss, a nonprofit organization helping families in need. Home-Start believes that every child deserves the best start in life. By matching experienced volunteers to families with young children, Home-Start provides support that is free to the family, confidential, and based on individual needs.
