EN: The end of one year is usually followed by its recapitulation and setting new goals for the coming year. 2015 has been a fruitful year for me. I started this blog in late 2014 and during the last year I managed to master the basics skills concerning the technical side of blogging, photography and advertising. Awareness of the large space for progression is a huge motivation for further learning and working. As for fashion design and sewing, during the previous year I learned more than ever before, and I am very proud of myself. I am entering the new year with a desire and willingness to self-consciously improve myself as much as I can. I hope that 2015 was good to you. Besides the most important health, I wish you in 2016 to develop a creative approach to life. Enjoy the love and beauty and may they give you needed strength and inspiration. Thank you all for following my work and supporting me. As a little present for a New year, I am giving you one very easy DIY project. And you do not need a sewing machine! See below how to make a fur scarf that can be a divine addition to your winter outfits. Whether you wear it over your coat or around the neck or with dresses, it will add some romantic glamor that is certainly welcome in the gray winter days. For the NYE, I wore this beautiful maroon Chloe dress from T. Moneta Boutique which pleasantly wraps your body and makes you feel comfortable and attractive while its color awakens the passion and happiness in you. Take a look at their shop, you might find something you like!

SR: Kraj jedne godine je obično praćen njenom rekapitulacijom kao i pstavljanjem ciljeva za narednu godinu. 2015 je bila plodna godina za mene. Pokrenula sam ovaj blog krajem 2014. i u toku prethodne godine sam uspela da savladam osnove veštine koje se tiču tehničke strane vođenja bloga, fotografije i marketinga. Svest o velikom prostoru za napredovanje za mene je ogromna motivacija za dalji rad i učenje. Što se tiče modnog dizajna i šivenja, tokom prthodne godine naučila sam više nego za sve prethodno vreme, i po tom pitanju sam jako ponosna na sebe. U novu godinu ulazim sa željom i spremnošću da što samosvesnije razvijam sebe. Nadam se da je 2015. bila dobra prema vama, a želim vam u 2016, uz najvažnije zdravlje, da razvijate spoobnost da što kreativnije prilazite životu, da uživate u ljubavi i lepoti i da vam oni daju snagu i inspiraciju. Hvala svima koji pratite moj rad i podržavate me. Za Novu godnu poklanjam vam jedan jako jednostvan uradi sam projekat, za koji vam nije potrebna mašina za šivenje! Pogledajte dole kako da napravite krzneni šal koji može da bude divan dodatak vašim zimskim kombinacijama. Svejedno da li ga nosili na preko kaputa, oko vrata ili na haljine, on će dodati nijansu romantičnog glamura koja je svakako dobordošla u sivim zimskim danima. Za doček sam nosila i savršenu bordo Chloe haljinu iz T. Moneta Boutique , koja prijatno obavija telo i čini da se osećate udobno i privlačno, a njena boja budi strast i sreću. Posetite njihov sajt, možda pronađete nešto što vam se dopada!

DIY PROJECT

You will need: 1) fur – about 15 cm wide, 2) lining of the similar color (same width), 3) similar color thread and needle, 4) scissors and measuring tape.

Potreban materijal: 1) krzno – oko 15 cm širine (ovo moje je koštalo oko 1500 din metar, tako da vas krzno može koštati samo oko 200 dinara!), 2) postava slične boje (iste širine), 3) konac slične boje i igla, 4) makaze i metar.diy1Measure the size of your body over the chest and shoulders where the scarf will lie and add additional 2cm. Cut the fur of appropriate size (width: 15 cm, length: the body extent + 2cm). You will need the lining of the same size, just add 1cm more to its length. Fold its longer edges for about 1,3 cm and iron them down.

Izmerite vaš obim tela preko grudi i ramena ramena gde će šal da leži i dodajte još 2cm. Isecite krzno odgovarajuće veličine (širina: 15 cm, dužina: obim + 2cm). Treba vam isto toliko i postave, s tim da nju treba da isečete još santimetar dužu. Njene ivice po dužini savijte za po oko 1,3 cm i ispeglajte.diy2

At the both ends of the fur cut off two triangles as shown. This will allow the scarf to fit your body more nicely.

Sa oba kraja krzna odsecite po jedan trougao kao na slici. Ovo će omogućiti da vam šal lepše leži na telu.diy3

Connect that two ends of the fur face to face. It is important that before you start to sew put the hairs down towards the inside so that you don’t catch them while sewing. The stitch will be invisible from the face that way. Sew a backstitch very close to the edge.

Spojite ta dva kraja krzna licem u lice.  Pre nego što počnete da šijete bitno je da spustite dlačice ka unutra kako ih ne biste uhvatili dok šijete i kako bi šav sa lica bio nevidljiv. Šijte jako blizu ivice povratnim bodom, jer ovaj šav treba da bude čvrst. diy4diy5diy6

Now  the lining has to be sewn to the inside of the fur. Turn the edges of the fur towards the inside, set the lining a bit over the folded fur edges and start stitching from the place you backstitched the fur. Put the needle through the fur than catch just a little of the lining at its edge, as shown. Pull the needle through, Then stab it again just above that point through the fur and then through the lining. Done this way the seam will be barely seen. Anyway, you do not have to bother a lot if you don’t want to because this is the inside of the scarf.

Sada sa unutrašnje strane krzna treba prišiti postavu tako što ćete podvrnuti ivice krzna ka unutra, a ivicu postave prišiti preko podvrnute ivice krzna. Počnite od šava na krznu. Probodite iglu kroz krzno i uhvatite samo malo postave pri ivici, kao na slici. Izvucite iglu i iznad tog mesta ponovo ubodite samo kroz krzno, a zatim uhvatite i postavu. Na taj način će se šav jedva videti, no,ne morate se mnogo opterećivati ako ne želite, jer je ovo unutrašnjost šala.diy7diy8

When you finish sewing the lining along both sides, fold what is left of it over and stitch as shown.

Kad prišijete postavu na unutrašnjost krzna, podvrnite jedan njen kraj preko drugog i pričvrstite kosim bodom kao na slici.

….and it is done! I hope you liked this project. You’ll need about an hour for it and hand sewing can be really relaxing when you get comfortable with it. If you have any questions, please leave a comment.

… i završili ste! Nadam se da vam se svideo ovaj projekat. Treba vam oko sat vremena za njega, a ručno šivenje zaista opušta samo kad malo uđete u štos. Ako imate neka pitanja, ostavite komentar.
