Vase with pink flowers

Nadiia Ganzhyi, painting "Vase with pink flowers"

I started it a few months ago, but just today I felt that I have finish it and I can. Maybe it is not Shyshkin, but I did my best)

My mom used to ask me, why all of my paintings are so dark, well, I guess it is my way to share, how I see things. It is probably the lightest painting I have made, but still in my style!

DIY dogie bed

bed for dogie

I think it is not fair to sew only for me) So, today I made dogie bed, first try. Fabric is not really good for it, but it is what I had. Maybe you remember, I was using it for a stool before, it is definitely to staple on furniture, not to sew, it sticks. slides and little bit hard for my sewing machine, also easy breaks under the needle, so, be careful while you pick a fabric for a pet. better cotton or something soft.

Well, it is the first one I tried, I also going to make round bed, some funny looking beds too, pets should have cute beds everywhere) I also add a few tiny pillows in order it looked like sofa.

It you are interested to try this too, I was using this template, but it depends on dogie size)

Wrap skirt, part 2

Hello, my dear followers. Today I decided to make one more wrap skirt, but to change a front of the skirt. All stitches need to iron again, since it is my problem…My best friend always was surprised that I iron for so long time and stitches still look weird, as for her, one time and it takes a few minutes and you see good silhouette of the clothing. I do not know how she does that, but I know for sure, piece of wooden block helps her, after ironing the stitch need to put something heavy for a few seconds and stitch takes it`s form. As for my stitches, looks puffy) But practise!

Wrap skirt

It is my first try to sew exactly this skirt, I done other types before.

I honestly, feel like I am back to school in it, but it is comfy. I would sew it from another fabric, but it is pretty good with natural cotton too, I guess.

I know, need to iron more, I was ironing on the was of swing, stitches mostly. You know, if you want straight and beautiful stitches and lines in general, need to iron after each stitch.

If you are interested to try DIY wrap skirt, I was using this template:

Jewelry box, part 2

Hello, my dear followers! This time I do not pictures before, only after. It is another GoodWill jewelry box, which we decided to paint.

It was brown with little bit red shade. We went with light blue, which looks fresh and awesome in my opinion)

What do you say, guys?

New experience in sewing

male t-shirt grey

Hello, my dear followers! Today I will share with you my late work, male t-shirt. I have never sewn male clothes, except boxers, before. Do not judge the stitches, I am learning new one now, there is a stitch which possible to use in finishing shirts with overlock, usually we see at the stores sleeves and bottom of the shirt made with cover stitch, will my best friend shown me another one.

We are far from each other now, but she still teaching me something you and sharing her ideas. She took a huge part in teaching me how to sew, of course, I attended sewing course too, but different people do different work. I trust her more because she always wants better quality, not only beautiful idea, she always checked every small stitch in my sewing and if she found little mistake which nobody else would see, she was giving me back my “piece of art” and I was told to unstitch all and start over again) It was not fun)

Well, I hope now, I can start making better job, no matter for me, if it is only to wear at home or to sell, everything should be perfect, look expensive and high quality.

But there is always the first step to this, practice…

Since I work with that what I have, only 2 sewing machines and I am a not professional, I have to find the ways do clothes in order I liked that and people around thought that it is a great piece.
