From Lunch Box To Sewing Kit Box / Od kutije za užinu do kutije za šivaći pribor

From Lunch Box To Sewing Kit Box by ana@carpe_diem


 I tako to....
Dijete raste, postaje punoljetno, odlazi na fakultet...
Pakiranje odjeće. Obuće. Posteljine. Knjiga.
Kuhinjskih stvari. Krpe i ručnici.
"Daj da ponovimo kako se peče meso, a kako kolači,
tu ti je temperatura, tu svijetli dok se pećnica grije, pazi na staklo..."
"Ovoliko praška stavljaš za bijelu robu, tu ti je odjeljak za predpranje,
ovoliko omekšivaća, nemoj pretjerivati, tu uliješ, ovako namjestiš program pranja,
ne miješaj tamno i svjetlo..."
"Je l' slušaš ti?!"
"Zapiši, kad ti kažem! Za svaki slučaj, eto zašto."
"E, da, i kutija za prvu pomoć."
 
And, so...
Child is getting bigger, becomes an adult, goes away to University...
Packing of clothes. Shoes. Bed linens. Books.
Kitchen stuff. Towels.
"Lets go over how to roast meat and how to bake cakes,
here is the temperature indicator, here is the lamp showing it, watch over glass door..."
"This much washing powder is for whites, here is powder department,
this much fabric softener, don't over do it, pour here, this is how to adjust washing program, separate darks and lights..."
"Are you listening at all?!"
"Write it down, I tell you! For any case, that's why."
"And, yes, here's first aid kit for you."
 
 
 
 
 
Tada sam se sjetila da maloj treba i pribor za šivanje,
u slučaju da joj se nešto raspara, ispadne botun i slično.
Njena nekadašnja kutija za užinu (marendu) je bila prigodan izbor -
nije više bila u prvotnoj funkciji i samo se prebacivala iz ladice u ladicu.
 
Then I have realized that she could use sewing kit, too,
in case she torns od ripps something, or buttons fell off.
Her previous lunch box was optimal choice -
it hadn't its original purpose any more and was relocating from one drawer to another.
 
 
 
 
 
Prikupila sam:
kutiju za marendu
šivaći komplet (igle, pribadače, konci u raznim bojama)
lastik
sigurnosne igle, gumbi
dva jastučića za igle i pribadače
pištolj za patrone
 
I have gathered:
lunch box
sewing kit (needles, pins, various treads)
elastic bands
safety pins, buttons
two pin cushions
glue gun
 
 
 
 
 
 Jedan jastučić za igle sam napravila u dimenzijama odjeljka u kutiji,
a drugi u obliku slova "M", kao "Mia".
Iskrojila sam oblike, prevrnula materijal i ispunila vatelinom,
otvor zašila ručno.
 
One pin cushion was shaped according to lunch box's compartment,
and another in shape of letter "M", as "Mia".
I have tailored the fabrics, turned it over, stuffed it,
handstitched the openings.
 
 
 
 
Jastučiće sam zaljepila pištoljem;
četvrtasti u predviđeni odjeljak, a slovo M na vrh kutijice.
 
I have used glue gun to secure both of pin cushons;
square one in intended section, and stuffed letter M on the top of the box.
 
 
 

U poseban odjeljak sa smjestila lastik, konce, igle i pribadače.
Taj se dio posebno zatvara.
 
I have placed elastic bands, needles, threads, pins in diveded section that closes over.
 
 
 
 

Sigurnosne igle i rezervne botune (gumbe) sam stavila u male najlončiće da se ne rasipaju,
a u poseban odjeljak i škare.
 
I have used little nylon bags for secure pins and spare buttons so they don't dissipate.
There are some scissors, too.
 




Gornji jastučić za igle posebno dobro dođe kod šivanja,
da se trenutno mogu odložiti igle i pribadače
(a ne da ih povećalom traži po podu :) ).
 
Top pin cushion comes pretty handy when sewing
to put off needles or pins momentarily
(so she won't look for it on the floor with magnifying glass :) ).
 
 
 

Tako...
Mala je spremna za faks.
Nisam sigurna da su roditelji spremni...
 
So...
Little girl is ready to take off .
I am not sure that parents are ready....
 
ˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇ
 
Kako vam se sviđa preinaka ove kutije?
 
How do you like this sewing kit box?

Sheep Pillow / Ovca jastučić

sheep pillow and pillowcase by ana@carpe_diem
 
 
Koliko ja kaaaaasnim sa ovim postom!
Našla sam prekrasnu malu ovčicu od filca na Carininom blogu prije 2 godine
i pomislila kako bi krasan jastučić to mogao biti za moju nećakinju i za kćer moje prijateljice koja voli ovčice.
Odmah sam kupila bijeli flanel i počela raditi na tome.
Ali, neki neplanirani događaji su odgodili završetak ovih jastučića sve do prošle godine.
I tek sad, nakon godinu dana, sam stigla srediti fotografije i napisati post.
Eh, bolje ikad, nego nikad...
 
 
This post is sooooo over due!
I have found this cute little felt sheep on Carina's blog two years ago and fell in love with it.
I have decided to make a pillow similar to her pattern.
I have thought it would made  a great Easter present for my niece and for my friend's daughter.
I got some white flannel and I started working on it right away.
But, some unexpected occasions messed up my plan
so I got to finish this project a year later.
That was last year!
And I didn't come around to arrange my photos and write a post untill now.
Oh, well... better late then never...
 
Moja inspiracija:
This is my inspiration:


Source





Rukom sam nacrtala kroj na papiru i izrezala ga.
 
I have free hand sketched this pattern on the paper and cut it off.
 



 
Lice i uši sam skrojila od materijala boje kože, sašila,
preokrenula na pravu stranu i napunila vatelinom.
 
I have tailored the face and ears with skin toned fabric,
sew it, turned it over and stuffed with pillow stuffing.
 
 
 
 
Nožice su u dvije boje, također napunjene vatelinom.
 
Sheep feet are in two shades of brown, also stuffed.
 
 
 
 
Za ovaj jastučić je potrebno napraviti 2 jastuka i  pripadajuće navlake.
Za potrebe jastuka, staviti dva sloja bijelog platna jedan na drugi, a na njih kroj tijela ovce.
Lagano iscrtati konture kroja olovkom.
Spojiti platno  jedan za drugi pribadačama,
prošiti mašinom po označenim konturama i izrezati višak materijala.
 
For this sheep pillow it is necessary to make 2 pillow and 2 covers
For the purposes of the pillow, put two layers of white fabric on top of each other, and to lay paper pattern of sheep body on them, too.
Lightly draw the outlines of the pattern with a pencil.
Secure fabric to each  other with pins, 
machine sew on marked contours and cut off the excess fabric.
 


 
Ovo je jastuk koji ćemo poslije napuniti vatelinom.
Primjećujete da nije simetričan - tako sam ja htjela napraviti.
 
This is the future pillow-to-be.
You can notice that it isn't symmetrical - I wanted it to be so.
 
 
 
 
Ostavite mali otvor gdje će se puniti vatelinom,
preokrenite ga i napunite.
 
Leave a small openning for stuffing,
turn it over and stuff it.




 
Naravno, morat ćete napraviti i jedan manji jastučić za "kosu".
Kad ste ih napunili, zašijte otvor ručno.
 
Of course, you have to make a smaller pillow, too, sheep "hair".
When you stuff both of pillows, handstitch the openings.
 
 
 
 
Sad ćemo napraviti jastučnice!
 
Let's make pillow cases now!
 
 
 
 
Potrebna su dva komada flanela kojima ćete obraditi rubove i posložiti ih kao što je prikazano na fotografiji. To će biti donji dio jastučnice kroz koji će se umetati jastuk.
 
It requires two pieces of flannel, process the edges and arrange them as shown in the photograph. This will be the bottom of the pillowcase, you will insert the pillow through.
 
 
 
 
Stavite još jedan sloj flanela na prethodna dva,
prislonite kroj, iscrtajte konture olovkom, pričvrstite pribadačama.
 
Lay another layer of flannel to the previous two,
lay the paper pattern, draw the contours with a pencil, attach pins.
 
 
 
Kad radite jastučnicu za ovčju "kosu", slobodno odmah prošijte kroj.
Ako radite ovčje tijelo, potreban je još jedan korak.
 
If you are working on sheep "hair", machine sew it right away.
If you are working on sheep body, there is one more step to follow.
 
 
 
 
Ovčje nožice zašijte da vatelin ne ispada.
 
Sew sheep feet so stuffing doesn't come out.
 
 
 
U ovom momentu, tijelo ovce ima nacrtane konture, ali još nije prošiveno.
S donje strane kroja umetnite noge, tako da se većinom nalaze u unutrašnjosti jastučnice.
 
At this point, sheep body has its countures on flannel, but it is not sewn yet.
Insert sheep feet at the bottom part of pillow case, so they are placed mostly in the inside. 
 
 
 
Jedan dio mora viriti van kontura jer će se tu one prošiti.
 
One part lays outside of the contours because there is a sewing line.
 
 
 
 
Prošijte po iscrtanim konturama, preokrenite i -
evo nožica!
 
Sew along the line, turn it over and -
there's sheep feet!
 
 
 
Na jastučnicu koja predstavlja tijelo namjestiti glavu i uši ovce,
prošijte mašinom. Nije važno ako ne izgleda baš jako uredno, ti se prošivi neće vidjeti.
 
Arrange the sheep head and ears on body pillow case,
machine sew it. It doesn't metter if the sewing lines are not very neat, they won't be seen later on.
 
 
 
 
 
Iznad glave se namjesti i jastučnica koja predstavlja kosu ovce,
isto se mašinski prošije koristeći onaj otvor sa zadnje strane.
Možete prošiti još jednu liniju iznad, tako da se vrh lica skroz sakrije.
 
 
Place the sheep hair over the top of sheep face and machine sew it
using the pillow case opening on the opposite side.
You can sew additional line above it, so you hide the top of the sheep face completely.
 
 
 
 
Sad je sve lijepo i uredno.
 
Everything is neat now.
 
 
 
 
 Umetnite jastučiće u jastučnice,
dakle, i tijelo i kosu.
 
Insert pillows into pillow cases,
both body and hair.
 
 
 
Za oči sam koristila okrugle smeđe botune,
a za nos četvrtastog jer nisam mogla naći botunčić u obliku trokuta.
 
I have used round brown buttons for sheep eyes,
and square one for nose beacuse I couldn't find triangle one.
 
 
 
Ispod ovčje glavice sam sašila žutu mašnu i mali zvončić.
To je nešto što bi svaka ovčica trebala imati, zar ne?  :)
Zvončić je, ustvari, božićni ornament sa bora.
 
Underneath sheep head I have handstitched yellow bow and little bell.
That's something that every little sheep sould be wearing, don't you think? :)
This bell is actually Christmas tree ornament.
 
 
 
I, evo je, gotova ovčica!
Kad se ovčica poželi oprati, potrebno je izvaditi dva jastučića iz nje, a ostalo ide u mašinu.
Dobro, možda bi se i zvono trebalo skinuti, ali nije ga problem ponovo zašiti.
 
And, here it is, little sheep is finished!
Once you want to wash the cover, you need to take out two little pillows
and the rest goes to the washing machine.
Okey, maybe you need to take off the bell, too, but it is not problem to stitch it back on.
 
 
 
Kako vam se sviđa ova napravi-sam ovčica?
How do you like this DIY little sheep?

Pi-Pi-Pilić / Little Chick Costume

Yellow Chick Costume

Vrijeme je karnevala!
Još ima dosta vremena da se napravi neki novi kostim.
Možda neko malo žuto razroko pile?
 
Trebat će vam spužva 1 cm debela, pigment (za bojanje unutrašnjih zidova),
filc po izboru,malo vinila, lastik, špricaljku,
igla i konac, pištolj za plastiku.
 
It's Carnival time!
There is plenty of time to make a new costume.
One little yellow cockeyed chick, perhaps?
 
You will need foam 1 cm thick, pigment (for inner walls), felt,
some vynil, elastic band, sprey, needle and thread,
glue gun.
 



 
Spužva je izvrstan materijal jer se da lijepiti sa vrućim pištoljem,
u slučaju da pofali malo materijala,
kao što se meni dogodilo.
Za ovaj kostim nemam kroj, ali oblici su krajnje jednostavni.
Količina materijala ovisi o dimenzijama, naravno.
Radila sam kostim za odraslu osobu,
pa sam koristila 2 role spužve dimenzija 100x200x1 cm,
ali je bilo i dosta ostatka (za slijedeći put).
 
Foam is great material for costume making because you can glue it with glue gun
if you are running out of foam, like I was.
I don't have pattern for this costume,
but you will see that shapes are quite simple and easy to make.
The quantity of foam depends of dimensions needed.
I was making  adult size costume,
so I used 2 rolles of 100x200x1 cm foam,
but I got plenty of leftovers (for next time).
 




 
Ako imate prilike, špricajte spužvu na otvorenom.
Svejedno zaštitite okolinu jer je pigment jaaako postojan.
Moji pofarbani kamenčići ispred kuće se nisu "odbojali" do ljeta :)
Pigment se nalazi u maloj bočici, pa tu bočicu koristimo kao mjeru.
1 bočica pigmenta i 2 bočice vode se stavi u špricaljku.
Vrlo je važno da špricaljka ravnomjerno raspršuje boju,
da ne kapa, podlijeva se i sl.
Zato ja skupljam šprice za raznih proizvoda za čišćenje
i probam koja mi je najbolja.
 
If you can, spray your foam at open.
Make sure to cover the ground because pigment is very steadfast.
My gravel didn't "discolorate" untill summer :)
Since pigment comes in little bottle/container, I use it as a measure.
Pour 1 bottle of pigment and 2 bottles of water into sprey.
It is very important that spray doesn't leak or dip,
but to evenly dispers color.
That's why I collect spray from various cleaning products.
so I can find the one that suites best.
 




 
Posprejana spužva se mora dobro osušiti.
 
Make sure that sprayed foam dries well.
 




 
Prednjicu i zadnjicu ručno zašijte.
 
Handstitch back and front.
 
 



 
Na donjem dijelu spužve izrežite po dva ušitka  na prednjici i zadnjici,
te zašijte sa krive strane.
To će dati malo volumena tijelu.
 
At the bottom of the foam cut two placket on the front and back,
and suture/handstitch from the rear side.
This will give a little body volume.





Izrežite otvor gdje prolaze ruke u obliku kruga.
 
Cut a hole for arms.
 
 



 
Malo iznad otvora ručno zašijte krila.
Posebno dobro zašijte mjesta naglašena strelicom.
 
 Handstitch the wings a little above the opening .
Make sure to suture firmly areas fhighlighted  by arrows.
 




 
Vrijeme je za stopala i kljun.
Iskrojite ih, posprejajte narančastim pigmentom (1:2).
Dimenzije stopala izmjerite prema patikama (tenisicama);
od mjesta gdje se vežu špigete (vezice) pa do vrha prstiju i još malo dulje
idu ova 3 pileća prsta.
Duljina cipele od te točke pa do pete
odgovara svakoj bočnoj strani ove čudnovate obuće.
Uf, ne mogu bolje objasniti :)
 
 
It is time for the feet and beak.
Tailor them, spray with orange pigment (1: 2).
You can figure out dimensions according to your sport shoes.
From the point where you tie your shoelaces to the top of fingers and some more,
fit  these 3 wierd chick fingers.
From that mentioned point and all the way to the heel,
fit both sides of this awesome footwear.
I can't explain better than this :)
 
 
 


 
Kad je spužva suha, ručno se zašiju krajevi.
Dobilo se nešto kao nazuvak  :)
Sad je malo jasnije, zar ne?
Sa donje strane se ušije lastik koji će pileće stopalo držati na mjestu prilikom hodanja.
 
 
When foam gets dry, handstitch the both ends.
Now you got something that you can pull over your normal shoes.
It gets clearer now, right?
Handstitch elastic band  at the bottom so your chick feet stay in place while walking.
 
 





 Kod obuvanja, prvo se navuče pileće stopalo,
onda se obuju cipele,  pa se namjesti lastik ispod đona.
Tako namješteno, pileće stopalo neće smetati prilikom hodanja.
 
About putting it on - first pull over your chick feet,
then put on your shoes and then you place the elastic band under the sole.
Set like this, your chick feet won't bother you while walking.
 
 
 

 
Iskrojite oči prema želji.
Moje pile ima oči različitih veličina.
Bijeli krug je od spužve, crno od vinila (samoljepljiva tapeta).
Vinil na spužvu zaljepite vrućim pištoljem jer će se inače odljepljivati.
Zaljepite oči na tijelo isto pištoljem.
 
Tailor chick's eyes as you like.
My chick has two different eyes.
White circles are out of foam, black are vynil. 
Glue vynil to foam with glue gun, otherwise it will come off.
Glue eyes to the body with glue gun, also.
 
 



 
Kljun možete ručno zašiti ili zaljepiti pištoljem,
kako vam je lakše.
 
You can handstitch the beek or you can use a glue gun,
what you prefer best.
 
 
 
 
 
Neka kljun malo strši, da ne bude plosnat.
 
Let beek stick out, so it isn't flat.
 
 



 
Ako je pilić djevojka,
napravite frizuru od filca. Možda i koja mašnica :)
 
If your chick is a girl, make her a hairdo out of felt.
Some bow, perhaps :)
 

 
 

 
Ta frizura dobro dođe da se malo zakamuflira otvor kroz koji se gleda.
 
That hairdo comes handy to cover the hole to watch through.
 
 




 Također, pilić treba mali pileći repić odostraga.
Od filca.
 
Also, your chick need cute little fluffy chick tail from behind.
Out of felt.
 
 
 
 
 
Malo po malo, korak po korak
i pilić je gotov.
 
Little by little, step by step
and chick is done.
 





Vrijeme je za pokazivanje!
 
It's time to show off!
 
 



 
Nadam se da vam se sviđa :)
 
I hope you like it :)
 





 Dobru zabavu!
 
Have a good time!
