Shoe bags

Well, the idea was a shoe bag, but who say that you have to use these that way! Someone said that these are too pretty for shoes, but that was the original idea. I had at this point my jewellery stands and lace handkerchiefs and I wanted to extend my collection. Bride's shoes are often more expensive and made from more delicate fabric, like satin. I personally use shoe bag always with my shoes, when I'm going to party. I don't use same shoes while travelling and walking long distances, then I use with fancy dress. The point of shoe bag isn't just to protect you shoes, but it's also for protecting everything else in your bag, from shoe bottoms. Plus they can be really pretty assessors.

These had linings to make them stronger and to make embroidery easier. The stitches are this way invisible, inside of the two layers of fabric. I draw the lines with fabric marker and with first try it went through the both layers of fabric.So Meri's almost daily tip for future, don't test fabric marker to almost ready work! Test it to sample fabric. It was sad moment to find out, that I was ruined whole work.  Then I started to use plastic chopping board under the the fabric to where I was drawing. These are the easiest and fastest to do multiple as once. Do one state at the time. Cut all fabrics at once, sew all at once, draw at once. After I draw one, I placed it to dry to clotheshorse. These are same flowers then I've done earlier. I don't often use a clue, but the ribbons were difficult. I had to protect the nots with it. @FromMadeByMeri

Working with a giant project

I've been busy and it's easy to see from, how often I've been writing lately. Anyways in beginning I promised for myself, that keeping the blog isn't going to be something, that I let to stress myself. I'm using all my time and energy for the work, what I'm doing right now. I don't want to tell more about it now, but for this post's sake, I need to tell, that I'm working with Photoshop and using hundreds of hours for this.

The biggest challenge for me is, that I don't remember to take a breaks. Somehow drawing with computer, doesn't feel same way working, then sewing or painting. I easily forget to drink or eat. Suddenly I notice,  that I've been drawing four hours and haven't moved at all. In long run, this is really stupid and I'm trying to focus specifically to this. Currently I'm "watching" Netflix while working. More like I have it open and I'm listening and time to time looking what is happening. My idea f…

Giving second change for my markers and buying new ones

I've been really into Inktober. Even more then I waited to be. I waited to have more problems with keeping this daily schedule, but surprisingly, only one day was hard to get anything done. I've been focusing to drawing so much and haven't really felt like writing. I think it's partly because, I've just been drawing and not doing that much anything else.

I've used almost completely my original markers. I had my first Sharpies ever and they used to be enough for me. Just because I didn't used to draw with them. I basically used those just for writing. They are okay and good for practicing, but now I'm needing more and I'm waiting from mail, my new Winston&Newton's Promarkers. I read and watched Youtube videos about, what would be the best for me. Copics are known to be the best, but the price is just way too much. I trust to Winston&Newton as brand, based of their other products, like paints. Also some artists actually prefer them, over C…

Art and feelings - hospital art

If you are saying that art doesn't wake any kind of feelings in you, you need to stop at next time and actually give a second to look at it. Art can be powerful tool and mood effective. I'm talking now specially about art in hospitals and other public places. In this context, art can be anything from actual painting or photography, to color of walls or pattern of ceiling. I'm always focused the patterns of air conditioner's grids. It sounds so small detail, but every hospital room has it and after laying somewhere hours, you'll start to notice details on roof.

I've got my dear share of hospital time. Time in waiting rooms, doctors offices, examination rooms, wards... There is usually one common thing. Something on walls, that is meant to make place to look nicer, warmer, more comfortable... Sometimes even more home like. It can be anything from doctor's kid's or kid patients drawings to abstract professional photographer's ink test like photos. Eith…
