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!

Jednostavan Domino kostim za maškare / Easy Domino Costume


 
 
Evo jedan vrlo jednostavan kostim za maškare -
domino!
 
Potrebna je spužva dimenzija 100x200x1 cm,
malo crne samoljepljive tapete (vinila),
škare,
pištolj za plastiku i koja patrona
ili igla i konac.
 
 
This is very easy DIY costume for a child -
Domino!
 
All you need is foam 100x200x1 cm,
some black vynil,
scissors,
glue gun
or needle and thred.



 
Spužva se može kupiti u dućanima sa tkaninama
ili čak u većim centrima, na odjelu boja ili na odjelu za kućanstvo,
kako u kojem.
Izrežite spužvu prema planu.
///Najprije izmjerite dijete da li mu odgovaraju ove dimenzije.///
Na bočnim djelovima izrežite po krug kuda će proći dječja ruka
(donja slika).
 
You can buy foam in fabric stores
or in bigger markets, at paint or household departments,
depending of store.
Cut the foam according to the plan.
///Measure your child first, to be sure these dimensions will fit him.///
At both sides cut the circle where kid's arm goes through
(bottom photo).

 
 


 
Što se tiče prolaska glave -
na sredini spužve izrežite krug koji ima malo veći promjer od promjera djetetovog vrata
(izmjerite krojačkim metrom),
zatim izrezani krug malo zarežite škarama liniju lijevo i desno
(ili naprijed-nazad) tek toliko da glava može proći (donja slika).
Nemojte previše zarezati jer je spužva dosta rastezljiva.

As for a head-
in the middle of the top piece, cut the cirlce of diameter slightly wider then
diamater if child's neck (use your measuring tape),
then cut the line left or right to the circle
(or back-front) so the head can come through (bottom photo).
Don't over cut it, because foam itself is quite flexilble (stretchy).






Kad ste pripremili sve dijelove,
rubove zalijepite pištoljem
ili iglom i koncem, kako vam više odgovara.
 
 
When you got all the pieces ready,
glue the edges with the glue gun
or hanstitch with needle and thread,
what you prefer best.
 
 




Sad je vrijeme za kružiće!
Izrežite ih iz vinila,
zalijepite za spužvu pištoljem.
Znam da je vinil samoljepljiv, ali vrlo brzo otpadne sa spužve,
pa je bolje biti siguran.
 
Now is time for dots!
Cut them out of the vynil,
glue them with glue gun.
I know that vynil is adhesive, but it will fall of foam very fast,
so it is better to be safe then sorry.
 





Za izradu ovog jednostavnog kostima ne treba puno različitog materijala
niti puno vremena,
a kad se skupi grupa malih domina kao ova -
- vrijeme je za igru!
 
 
You won't need many various materials for this simple costume
or a lot of time to make it,
but when you gather a bunch of little dominos like these -
- the game is on!

When Life Gives You Lemons / Kad dobijete neprskane limune

When Life Gives You Lemons...

Naš urod organsko uzgojenih, neprskanih, netretiranih limuna je...
... točno 2 komada :)
 
Our crop of organically grown, unsprayed, untreated lemon is...
...exactly 2 pieces :)
 
 







Ali, imam sreće da drugima uzgoj limuna ide od ruke,
tako da svake godine dobijem vrećicu netretiranih limuna.

But I get lucky each year and receive a bag
full of untreated lemons from people more agile then I am.

 
 
Teško je doći do netretiranih limuna,
zato ih nastojim iskoristi u potpunosti.
 
Its hard to find untreated lemons on the market,
so when I have some,
I really try to make the most of it.




Limune operem i svakome naribam koricu.
Ovakvi limuni imaju vrlo glatku koru,
tako da ribanje traje.
 
 Wash and grate each lemon.
I noticed that these lemons have smoother skin then regular ones,
so grating takes time.
 


 
Posudicu za led napunim koricom,
te dodam još malo vode u svaku kockicu
da se lakše zaledi.
 
Put grated zest into ice tray
and cover the zest with little bit of water
so it could freeze easier.
 
 
 
 Ocijedim sok,
obično ručno.
Ali samo zato što mi se ne da prati sokovnik :)
 
Squeeze the juice.
I usually make it by hand,
but only because I don't feel like washing juicer later on :)
 
 
 
Napunim posudice za led.
 
Fill the ice tray with lemon juice.
 
 
 
Posudice za led su spremne za zamrzivač.
 
Ice trays are ready for freezer.
 
 
 
 Sutradan izvadim zaleđene kockice,
stavim u vrećice i natrag u zamrzivač.
Kad mi zatreba korica ili sok od limuna,
izvadim kockicu ili odlomim koliko mi treba.
 
Take the lemon ice tray from the freezer tomorrow,
place cubes into bags
and put them back in freezer.
When I need some zest or lemon juice,
I can take as much as I want.
 
ˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇ
 

Limunovu koricu, ali i sok
koristim u mnogim kolačima i jelima.
Evo nekih:
  
I use lemon zest or lemon juice
in many recepies, sweet and savory.
Here are some:

Ho-Ho-Ho Surprise


 
What would you do if you suddenly find a bunch of hillarious Santas
in your own living room?
I took my camera,
because I just knew that is going to be a memory worth capturing :)
 
 
 

 
 
It happend couple of days before Christmas.
It was late afternoon,
we just  had placed our Christmas tree that we cut earlier that day.
My husband was taking a nap on the sofa,
my son was playing with Christmas toys,
and I was about to start decorating our tree.
I just had hanged some lights on
when I had heard giggles.
And before I knew it,
13 merry Santas  bourst into our living room,
laughing and singing!
There were all over the place!
 
 
 
 
 
They got bored pretty soon.
They were planning what to do next.
 
 
 
 
An idea!
"Let's decorate Christmas tree!"
 
 
 
 
They worked really hard,
even had climbed the ladder :)
 
 
 
 
They were taking care of each detail.
 
 
 
"Done!"
They just loved how they had decorated.

Don't you?
 
 
 
 
Another idea-
"Let's help with the laundry!
We are going to fold,
you could iron!"
 
 
 
 
"What's in the laundry basket?"
 
Hopfully nothing inappropriate :)
 
 
 
 
 
"Look at this kitchen cloth!
We don't have punctured  ones on North Pole!"
 
Oh, well...
 
 
 
"Whose socks are those?"
 
Luckily I managed to get all stains off :)
 
 
 
 
"Let's clean the windows!
Easy - peasy!"
 
 
 
 
"Oh, I am so tired...."
 
 
 
 
".... because of all this cleaning and folding!"
 
 
 
 
Now is time to party!
 
 
 
 
The lights go off!
 
 
 
 
Happy dance :)
 
 
 
 
And some more!
 
 
 
 
 
"I am beat!"
 
 
 
 
Time to go.
 
 
 
 
Santas had traveled with this most inventive tractor-slay :)
 
 
 
And they almost kiddnaped my husband!
But when I have informed them that he can't stand low temperatures,
they had let him stay with us :)
 
 
ˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇ
Merry Santas are group of local enthusiasts
who gather presents all year long
to deliver them to ALL children untill 10 years old
in our district.
 
They are joyful and spread Christmas cheer
both to kids and parents.
We are lucky to have them, indeed!
 
This tale is taking place in
Pirovac, Croatia.
