Shop news

Hello,

New year is here and we are now three weeks into New year's resolutions, with fresh ideas and motivated to start new projects.

After my participation at the Christmas market last December I decided to add little soft dolls in my Etsy shop. So far I was making these little kittens, bunnies and bears as personalized birthday presents for my childrens' friends and they were a big success - I hope my Etsy bunch gets some love as well! So far there are seven dolls in the shop but you can always contact me for a custom made one and I will embroider a name for no additional charge.


P.S. The drawings in the background of these product photos were kindly lent to me by my children
:-)

Živjo,

novo leto je tukaj in začenjamo ga z zaletom, s svežimi idejami in novimi projekti. Eden takšnih se je odkrušil od lanskega božičnega sejma - male mehke živalce, ki jih že nekaj let šivam za rojstnodnevna darila prijateljem mojih otrok, so zdaj na voljo tudi v Etsy trgovini - poleg prve sedmerice pliškotov ponujam tudi izdelavo po želji, barve, izvezeno ime.
P.S: Risbice za "fotosešn" sta prijazno posodila otročka :-)

Christmas market

I am participating in a local Christmas creative market this Saturday and I will be offering most of my smaller purses, clutches and zipper pouches, plus some new pencil cases, house brooches and little stuffed animals I've made especially for this occasion.

I am spending my last evening making labels, preparing packaging material and my tiny stand
- I will let you know how it went in my next post...

Have a nice weekend!

New in my shop

I just added this zipper pouch in light grey and silver faux leather with turquoise embroidery to my shop - the pouch measures 17 x 14 cm (6,8 x 5,5"), is lined with polkadot turquoise cotton and closes with a chunky metallic zipper.
Clink on this Instagram link to see a 15 sec lapse video of free motion embroidery I used to decorate the purse.

April news

We've recently returned from a short spring break holiday in Slovenia. And it was real spring, with nature exploding in blossoms and rich green foliage, with lots of warm sun and outdoor play for children and Lisa the dog - it was her first visit back to Slovenia since we've adopted her in one of the local shelters last summer.




It was quite a shock coming back to our colder and much more wintry climate, here the trees are nowhere near green and the little tulips in my garden haven't even poked their heads out of the ground yet. 
We've gotten used to late spring by now, here on high altitude it always comes with a month's delay but nothing could have prepared us for this year's shock - snow. For the second morning this week we've woken up to a fresh blanket of frozen snow and the sound of early risers scratching ice off their windshields. 


I am trying in vain to motivate myself for sewing and in the meantime I reach for the watercolours and doodle a little into my sketch book. It's fun and very relaxing, it feels good to train forgotten skills again.



I hope you are enjoying a warmer spring,

until next time,
Damjana

Take aprilske

Po tednu spomladanskih počitnic v topli, sončni in zeleno cvetoči Sloveniji, smo se prejšnji teden vrnili domov. Zdaj sem se že nekako privalidal na naše pozne, mrzle pomladi, ki s cvetovi zamujajo kar cel mesec, a letos je šla zima vseeno predaleč - danes zjutraj nas je že drugič ta teden pričakala odeja zmrznjenega snega in zjutraj sem se zbudila ob zvokih strganja ledu z avtomobilskih šip.
Medtem, ko čakam, da se vrne motivacija za šivanje, se rada zamotim z akvarelnimi barvicami, dobro dene malo obnoviti pozabljene veščine.
Upam, da imate kaj toplejšo pomlad, lep pozdrav do naslednjič!
