i want that book, NOW!:) i always have trouble finding gifts for friends and it's a tradition in our friend circle to buy ridiculous stuff to each other for birthdays(once we bought a friend tons of yellow stuff (clothes, candy,...). to make the gift even more ridiculous, we didn't give it to her on her birthday, on that day she only got a CD with the song Yellow by Coldplay on it.) this book would be great inspiration.
and i would also really like a t-shirt like that:) i love giraffes too and i think yours is great.
Has anyone ever tried to make marzipan at home? I LOVE marzipan and I love to cook, and especially, i love to make pralines. I have a dream of making my own marzipan, since the ones you can buy at stores aren't as good as the ones you get in pralines:) so i was wondering if any of you have ever tried to make marzipan at home and what was the recipe and if it was very difficult. i would really love some advice before i run to the shop and buy tons of almonds:) tnx in adavnce
The black purse was made for a friend, who is the owner of the beautiful black camper shoes (campers are my absolute favorite) as a christmas present. The text is a funny story how i somehow managed to sew my finger (i had a broken needle throgh the finger and had to go to the ER) while sewing the stars on the fornt. Ofcourse it wasn't funny then, but it is now, becouse while sewing the stars on the bag, i was singing an old slovenina (communist) national song, whit the lyrics "a girl was sewing a star, a star red as blood". Maybe it still doesnt sound funny, but it is funny to me:) It didn't hurt THAT much, and there are always cute young doctors at the ER:)
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 .

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"
