61  memories of summer bags in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by p.kok on: September 11, 2010 05:39:59 AM
My friend, who took some pictures of bags I made in the summer, just sent me more edited pictures.

so here, the first bag:

it has a polymer clay brooch(is that the right word, google translate said it is:)) as a decoration. also made by me with some seashells form last summer.

and I'm really proud of the second one, it's made with fabric that I printed with linoleum myself. if you want a tutorial for printing on fabric with linoleum I can make one, but you can also find some on the Internet. I just always forget to bookmark useful pages:)

thanks for looking, c&c welcome!

62  Re: Show Off Your Hair--Dyed, Cut, or Styled by Yourself! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by p.kok on: September 08, 2010 02:02:31 AM

I have naturally curly hair and i always thought you can't do many different hairstyles with that. But after seeing this topic and going through my pictures i found out that you can:D

You can kinda see the short history of my hair on the picture, i'm just going to comment on two of my hairstyles.

The craziest hairstyle i ever had was when i got a job as a hair model. That's the fiery afro, if you were wondering. The man on the picture is the hairstylist, who's supposed to be very famous, one of the best in the world, or so i was told. I really loved that color.

The last two pictures are my hair as i have it in the moment. I always wanted to have short hair, but everyone refused to cut it, since it's curly. My mom finally recommended me a very expensive hair salon, where they cut my hair. I also decided i'm not going to color it anymore, since i'm too lazy and don't do it often enough, and then it's ugly like in one of the pictures.

i like my hair short, but not when it's curly. It's to eightiesy. My boyfriend loves my long hair so i'm provably going to let them grow again.

63  faux embriodery quote hoops in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by p.kok on: August 31, 2010 04:36:58 AM
Inspired by this project http://www.designspongeonline.com/2010/06/faux-embroidery-quote-hoops.html i've decided i wanted to make something like this with my favorite quotes for our apartment. So i designed a fabric on spoonflower and ordered some embroidery hoops on ebay(if you know a good internet shop that ships to europe and has good price, please, pm me. Embroidery isn't really popular where i come from so all the equipment is really expensive!). And thats' how it looks like: (this are just two, i ordered only two hoops to see how it would look like, i like it, now i have to order more, and wait:))

and this is the fabric(it a really big image so i copied a link) : http://www.spoonflower.com/design_thumbnails/0030/4624/embrodery_highres.png?1280951792

64  Re: summery plaidy popy bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by p.kok on: August 25, 2010 11:36:33 AM
here are two more bas

the first one is one of the first bags i ever made. I loved it then, i don't like it anymore. i kinda got bored with the Ikea fabric since you can see it EVERYWHERE. Its made based on one of the tutorials on crafster, i just don't remember which one, it's been almost a year.

the second one is based on a pattern in "carry me, 20 butique bags to sew". i never actually copied the pattern, i'm to lazy for that:) it's round, but you can't really see it on the picture:)

Both have great lining fabric, we just forgot to take pictures of the one in the first bag. they were both my grandmothers and she gave it to me when i started sewing. she never really knew how to sew, she just liked the idea of sewing and my grandfather used to buy her fabric on the trips he made to Egypt and Germany etc, but i don't know where those two are from:) i just know they are probably 30 years old or older. the second bag has the same lining as the fabric on the inside of the strap.

65  summery plaidy popy bag(and more) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by p.kok on: August 23, 2010 02:42:27 AM
I made quite a few Bags in the past year and since i don't use any of them, i've decided i'll try and sell them - so i get money to buy new fabric to make new bags:) (this is in no way meant commercially, i probably wont even sell them outside of Slovenia). The point is: my friend just got an awesome new camera (some very fancy Nikon thing, i don't know sh* about cameras) and she volunteered to take nice pictures of the bags. She only edited pictures for one bag, and it's the last bag i made. I kinda really like it:) The outside is cotton canvas, the braid is jersey and the poppy flower is felt. I made the pattern myself. When she edits more pictures, i'll post more if you want:)

66  Reupholstered Chair (my first upholstery project) in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by p.kok on: August 21, 2010 03:10:26 AM
A while ago i moved in with my boyfriend and some friends to some kind of student apartment(we're all finishing our university degrees and work but still don't earn enough money to live in separate apartments). anyway, after a long period of apartment searching we found this one apartment that doesn't have the perfect location, but it's cheap and the best part is that it was more or less furnished and the owners are great. One of the best pieces for furniture was an old ugly chair that was really comfortable and i immediately fell in  love with it. I really wanted to do some upholstery projects but while i was living at my parents there wasn't any furniture that they would allow me to experiment with;D. so you can see how this chair added a lot of extra points to the apartment:)

i'm not really skilled at sewing yet and i didn't do it the way it's supposed to be done (for instance i didn't even sew two different covers for the lower part that is actually made up of two different pillows, i just made one cover.) but i still love it. and luckily my flatmates like it too:)

to The picture (i don't have a before picture, just imagine ugly dirty gray fabric):

i simply love Ikea fabric:)

67  my very own bags made out of my very own fabric in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by p.kok on: August 05, 2010 12:33:49 PM
I've been sewing for almost a year now, and i've been lurking on crafster since the first week. I've never posted anything since i didn't really know what to post and because my English is pretty rusty and i didn't want to embers myself too much. Anyway, a week ago i got my first delivery of spoonflower fabric designed by me(i'm from a very small European country and the delivery took a long time. not to mention the printing...). However, I LOVE it:) I made 2 bags right away, one is for grown ups (i think it's going to stay mine) and the other one is a backpack for a little girl. I posted some pictures on my Slovenian blog but since no one seems to be interested in my home country, i've decided to share my enthusiasm with fellow crafters. I hope to get some C&C here, so feel free to say anything about them. It'll be better than my imaginary blog readers Wink.

the grown up bag:

the little girl backpack:

I know the pictures are pretty bad but i'm a really horrible photographer. Both bags are made with my patterns(kinda) and with a combination of my fabric and Ikea fabric. Hope you like them:)

Ps: the illustration on the backpack fabric is based on a great Slovenian fairytale called "My umbrella can turn into a balloon"
