Painted pencil case

This pencil case was my very first fabric painting project. 

 I found the rose pattern in a Hungarian craft magazine, Praktika, where it was painted on a small cabinet. I used the simplest fabric paint and a thin brush for painting the roses. Since then I've washed it a couple of times, and I'm happy that the colours didn't fade too much.

I recently discovered Pinterest, although when I heard about it before, I always said that I should not join it, because it would be too time-consuming. To tell the truth, I didn't regret joining it in the end because I can draw plenty of inspiration from all the great pictures there.
(You can find my Pinterest account here, or on the sidebar)

I hope you like the pencil case :)

All the best,

Tree - A Craft Challenge at Art-Piaskownica

I found Art-Piaskownica through Marysza's blog. I think it's such a great idea to organize craft challenges like these, it's a nice method for connecting bloggers from around the world and for motivating them to create something new.
One of the recent topics was "Tree", and I decided to participate in the challenge.
I want to show you a small tree I made using a stone, some beads and wire. It was inspired by the trees with minerals as leaves which are believed to bring luck.

I hope you like it :)

Have a nice evening,

It's not the best idea to start a blog with a long break right away, is it? The reason for me being so silent was the exam period at the university. I'm over the worst, there are only two exams left. :)

I want to show you a present I've made about a year ago for a friend of mine. It's a felted pen, it's partly made with the traditional felting technique, partly with needlefelting.

For making the tulip, I used the instructions found here. Firstly, I felted a ball with a glass marble inside of it, then cut it on one side in the shape of an "X". I took out the glass marble, and continued felting until the tulip had its final shape.

Then I felted the body of the pen, and used needlefelting for the finishing touches: I put the tulip on its place and added a green leaf as well, to make the pen more colorful and tulip-like. :)

Do you like it? :) 

See you soon,

Hello there

It's time to start over my blog. I don't want to share any too private details of my life with the world, I just want to show you, dear readers, the things I make. I want to share my experiences in sewing and some other crafts I like. So, that is what you can expect from me here.
All the best for the new year,
