My watermelon bag




Ovo je moja lubenica - torba!

Ideju sam dobila već prije godinu dana,
ali nikako da je napravim.

Imala sam želju napraviti torbicu baš ovakvih boja,
ali da oblik bude kao feta (kriška) lubenice.


Let me introduce you my watermelon bag!

I had this idea in my head for over a year now,
and finally I got some spare time to make it!

I had a wish to make a bag using these colors,
but in a shape of watermelon slice!


Izrezala sam ovakve oblike 2 puta.
I cut this forms twice.




Lagano sam ih pripuntala jedan za drugi.

I stitched them ligthly to each other.



I, kad sam vidjela da je sve u redu, prošila sam ih.
Na slici su prikazane s prednje i zadnje strane.

And, when I saw everything's alright, I sewed them
This photo shows both front and back.



Onda sam izrezala ovu formu 4 puta.
To će mi biti za unutrašnjost torbe.
Then I cut this form 4 times.
This is for the insides.





Pa sam izrezala zeleni  i bijeli dio za dno
i još jedan bijeli za unutrašnjost torbe.

Then I cut green and white for the bottom of the bag
 and another white for the insides.




Odmah mi je bilo jasno da ova torba, napravljena samo od platna,
neće biti čvrsta i neće imati formu koju ja želim.
Zato sam pronašla jedan komad plastičnog omota
sa kutije neke igračke.
To će torbi dati oblik.
Na slici se jedva vidi gdje je ta plastika :(

I knew from the start that this bag, made out only of fabric,
won't have the shape that I want.
So I took a peace of plastik from the box
in which some toy was bought.
That plastic will give the firmess needed.
on this photo you can hardly see it, sorry :(




Izrezala sam plastiku nešto užu i manju od zelenog dijela.
I cut this plastic to be a little bit smaller then the green part.




I smjestila je unutar zelenog i bijelog dijela.


And I placed it between green and white fabric.




Tada sam daj donji dio pripuntala za crveno-bijele stranice.

Then I stiched this bottom green-white part to the red-white side parts.




I poslije to sašila mašinom.

And, later, sewed with machine.




Onda sam opet ručno dodala još jedan bijeli dio na bočne strane,
kao neki džep.
Unutra sam umetnula opet tanku plastiku.

Then I hand stiched the white fabric on the red-white sides,
just like a pocket.
I put some thin plastic inside, again.



Pa sam to sve opet prošila mašinom.
Prije toga sam dodala crvene ručkice.

And I sewed it again with the machine.
Before that, I put some red hangs.



Tada je na red došla unutrašnjost torbe.
Isti oblik kao vanjski.
Then I made the inner part of the bag.
Same form like the outside. 



Umetnula sam unutrašnjost unutra, pripuntala ručno,
dodala patent isto ručno,
i kad je sve sjelo na svoje mjesto, prošila.

I put the inside part inside (of course), hand-stiched it,
put some red zipper, too, handstiched also.
And, when everything look the way it is supposed to be,
I carefully machine sewed it.



Unutra je i mali džepić, za mob ili slično.
There's a little pocket inside, for phone or such.



Lubenica ne bi bila lubenica da nema koštice.
Ovo su krasni botuni, izgledaju baš kao koštice!

A watermelon wouldn't be a watermelon if it doesn't have any seeds.
Look at these great buttons, they looke just like seeds!



Pogled sa svih mogućih strana:
A view from all possible sides:




I to je to!
Moja trodimenzionalna torba.

And, that's it!
My 3D bag.


Nadam se da su moje upute koliko-toliko jasne.
A ni meni nije bilo sve jasno kad sam je radila,
ali mi je drago da je ispala baš kako sam je zamislila.

I hope that my instructions are somewhat clear.
Anyway, I wasn't clear about it myself when I was making it,
but I am sooooo glad that it turned out the way I imagined it!

I hope you'll like it ;)

The Pirates Bday party - Summary


Najdraža gusarova majca!
 Pirate's favorite shirt!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Ali, osim te majce,
što sve gusar mora imati da bi bio pravi gusar?
But, beside that shirt,
what does a pirat has to have to become a real pirate?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1. gusarska odjeća ( evo link)
2. gusarska kapa (link)
3. povez za oko, najvjerovatnije
1. pirate clothes (here's a link)
2. pirate hat (link)
3. eye patch, I guess

4. gusarski brod (link)
5. gusarska zastava
6. posada
(poželjno da su na ljetnim praznicima,
pa da ne moraju ići u školu :)
4. pirates' ship (link)
5. pirates' flag
6. some crew
(hopefully on summer break,
so they don't have to go to the school :)

7. gusarska rođendanska torta (link)
(jer i gusari imaju rođendane, zar ne?)

7. pirate's birthday cake (link)
(because pirates have birthdays as well, right?)



8. bačva ruma
(bez ruma, samo bačva ;) - link)

8. barrel of rum
(in our case, without rum ;) - link)


9. mač gusarski, valjda 
9. pirates' sword, most probably

10. mama koja ima volje to sve napraviti

10. Mom (optional) who is willing to make all of that
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I to je to! Dan za pamćenje!
And, that's it! A day to remember!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dobra knjiga u kojoj se može pročitati puno toga o gusarima i gusarenju:
















  • Napisala ju je Elisabeth Dumont Le Cornec,
  • ilustrator je Jean-Marie Poissenot,
  • naslov "Gusari", u originalu "Les Pirates",
  • kod nas izdana u Biblioteci Zvrk, izdavač Profil, 2004.

A very good book, if you like to know more about pirates, here's link:

Happy reading, everyone!

A Treasure Chest BDay Cake / Part 4

Kakvu bi tortu poželio pirat?            
Možda u obliku škrinje sa blagom?

What kind of birthday cake would a pirate like?
Maybe in a form of a treasure chest?




Ovo je moj najdraži recept za torte.
Uvijek uspijeva.
Samo je za ovu tortu trebalo povećati dozu
(2 puta po:
  • 4 jaja
  • 250 g šećera
  • 260 g brašna
  • 1 prašak za pecivo
  • 1,5 dcl vode
  • 1,5 dcl ulja)
i peći je u dvije velike roštijere, kao na slici.
Isjeći na dvije polovice.

This is my favorite receipt for a cake,
just add some more ingredians
  •  ( 2 x of everything
  •   4 eggs
  • 250 g sugar
  • 260 g flour
  • 1 baking soda
  • 1,5 dcl oil
  • 1,5 dcl water )
  • and bake in a big form, just like on the photo.
Cut them in half.




Imala sam dosta banana taj dan.
Odlučila sam ih natopiti limunovim sokom
da ne pocrne , ali da i torta bude osvježavajuće kiselkasta.

I had some bananas, so I decided to soke them up
in a lemon juice, to prevent it to become darker
and to add some sour taste
to the cake.





Na kremu sam poslagala kisele banane, pa drugi list, krema,
banane, treći list, malo više kreme na sredini
(da dobijem oblik škrinje),
pa banane, pa četvrti list.


First layer, then cream, bananas, 2nd layer,
cream, bananas, 3rd layer had some more cream
to help me build a chest form,
bananas, 4th layer.





Oblik škrinje, po meni.

Chest form, according to me.





Onda smo krenuli na bojanje marcipana.
Kažem "smo" jer je i pirat odlučio sudjelovati.
Ovo su piratske ručice.
Marcipan smo bojali kakaom. 

Then we decided to give some color to the marzipan,
 I say "we" becouse a little pirate decided to take a part. 
These are  litlle pirate's hands.
We used some cacao.





Obojali smo jedan dio tamnije, odnosno dodali smo više kakaa.

We ended up having two shades of brown.






Piratova sestra je valjala marcipan,
a piratova mama je rezala trakice nožem
(samo zato što je mama i sama nekad bila pirat pa dobro rukuje nožem :) .

Pirate's sister rolled the marzipan 
and mom cut it with the knife
(but only because mom used to be a pirate herself
and is very handy with the knife since :) .






Ovo je naša škrinja sa blagom.
Moram priznati da je ispala malčice neuredno,
ali se tješim da nisam imala dovoljno
marcipana i da je bilo jaaako vruće...
Ali zato ima ključ!
Well, this is our treasure chest!
I must addmit that it turned out a litlle bit clomsy,
but I say to myself that happend becouse
I didn't have enough of marzipan
and it was way tooo hot...
But, there is a key! Final touch!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I mali ljetni bonus - lubenica (iliti čentrun):

And a small summer bonus - a watermelon:


Lubenici sam izrezala oba kraja, jedan više,
drugi manje.
Donji kraj je manji, izrezan tek toliko da
lubenica može stajati.

I cut the watremelon's both ends, one more
then the other so it can stand.


Gornji dio je malo više zarezan i služi kao poklopac.

The upper end is a lid now.

Nemam onu posebnu malu žličicu koja radi
male kuglice od mesa lubenice, pa sam se poslužila
 najobičnijom žlicom. Isto radi.
Ali su komadi bili svih oblika i veličina.

 I don't have that special little spoon for a watermelon,
so I used a regular one. It works all the same!
Just the pieces were different shapes
and sizes.

Kad sam je skroz ispraznila, izrezala sam usta i oko.
Ovako izrezana je otišla u frižider do sutra.
Meso sam stavila u posudu i isto na hlađenje.

I cut the mouth and an eye.
Insides were in the fridge untill next morning.
 And the watermelon head, also.



Sutradan je veseli pirat dobio povez na oku.
Vadili samo komadiće lubenice žlicom
i jeli skupa sa tortom.

Tomorrow morning,
 our watermelon head got an eye patch.
So, it became a pirate as well!

A Pirate Flag and a Ship / Part 3

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/1/1b/Jolly-roger.svg/800px-Jolly-roger.svg.png

Ovu lubanju za gusarsku zastavu sam našla na prethodnom linku.

I have find this Jolly Roger on previous link.

Napravila sam zastavu od (duplog) crnog krep papira i sašila je ovako:

I have made this flag out of (double) black crepe paper and sew it like this:


Samu lubanju sam izrezala od bijele samoljepive tapete (super praktično!).

I have cut the skull itself out of white adhesive paper.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Od ostatka krep papira sam napravila girlande:

From the rest of crepe paper I have made a garland:
Presaviniti, izrezati.
Ja sam čak prošila gornji rub, tako da mogu provući špagu.

Fold, cut.
I even sew the upper part so I can put some cord inside.


Naljepila sam lubanje, na svaku treću, mislim.
I put some skulls on, on every third, I belive.





~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A, sada, gusarski brod:
And, here comes the pirate ship:


Zastavu smo nataknuli na dršku od metle i zavezali za jarbol.
Jedro je sašiveno od stare plahte.
Morali smo jedro zavezati u čvor je je dan bio vjetrovit.

The flag was on the broom stick :)
The sail is made out of old bed sheet ;))

Pošto nismo bili zadovoljni izgledom broda,
 odlučili smo ga obuči u karton da mu podarimo drveni "look".
Since we didn't like this "plastic" look of our boat,
we decided to put some cardboard on it to look a little more like wooden ship.




Ovo su gusarska sestra i gusarska mama
koje lijepe karton po brodu točno u podne
na divno čudo svih susjeda, kupača i ostalih putnika namjernika.
Slikao gusar glavom i bradom, iz dubokog hlada.

These are pirate's sister and mom,
making the final preparations of pirate ship at high noon.
Photo taken by pirate himself, resting in the deep shade.




 Napokon, vožnja gusarskim brodom.

Finaly, a ride on a pirate ship.



Neki djelovi našeg gusarskog broda putem su otpali.


Some parts of our pirate ship have fallen of.
 Oh, well...
