“Cat” bag/ Torebka-kotek

Do you remember this cat? He was supposed to be a cushion for Wojtek but he sits on a window in our living room pretending being a real cat :) Some time ago while looking at him I came to an idea that I could make a bag in such shape. Next day we went to the market and Jagna has chosen a fabric for her bag. I decided to combine it with old denim and I made the first bag. I’m not very happy with its face but I was anyway satisfied with the result and I made a second one for a birthday gift of Jagna’s very best friend. For ones that would like to make such bag for their own girls (daughters, granddaughters etc) I made a pattern with a step-by-step tutorial illustrated with pictures (7 pages in total).

Pamietacie jeszcze tego kota? Mial byc Wojtusiowa poduszka, ale siedzi sobie na oknie udajac prawdziwego stwora. Jakis czas temu przyszlo mi na mysl, ze moznaby zrobic podobna torebke dla Jagny. Nastepnego dnia Jagna na targu wybrala sobie material, a ja go polaczylam ze starym jeansem i zrobilam taka torebke. Jagna byla zachwycona, ja troche mniej bo jego pyszczek mi sie nie bardzo podobal. Nastepna zrobilam dla przyjaciolki Jagnowej, ktora tez byla bardzo zachwycona kotem. Ta torebka bardzo mi sie podoba. Podoba mi sie do tego stopnia, ze postanowilam sie podzielic wzorem i tak oto powstal kolejny wzor w formie pdf do kupienia tu na blogu lub przez etsy. Calosc ma 7 stron i jest ilustrowana fotografiami.

The Art Exchange

Few months ago I participated in Flickr’s The Art Exchange. I was supposed to send a gift to one person and get 36 myself.. In theory…

Well, I got two and I forgot about this exchange. Until yesterday, when I got this treasure from Cynka. Thanks!

Gift from sis/Prezent od siostry

Perhaps I’ve never told you but I have a very talented sister. Recently I’ve got from her a stunning drawing. Jagna is a bit afraid of it, but Wojtek loves it and so do I! Thanks Ewa!

Moze sie wam jeszcze nie chwalilam, ale jestem szczesliwa posiadaczka bardzo zdolnej mlodszej siostry, od ktorej to ostatnio dostalam wspanialy rysunek. Jagna sie go troche boi, ale Wojtek, podobnie jak ja uwielbia go. Dzieki Ewa!

...[']

I can not still believe that so many important peoples of Polish politics died in one moment during the plane crash today. I’m not really interested in politics but this is for me a personal trauma. Those were peoples I’ve known from daily news, I was not always happy with what they said or what they did but still they were important for the country and for peoples. So sad…


Jakoś nie potrafię sobie do końca uświadomić, że tyle ważnych osób zginęło dziś w jednej chwili… Nigdy nie byłam fanką prezydenta, ale nigdy, przenigdy nie życzyłabym mu takiej śmierci. Jestem głęboko wstrząśnięta i smutna. Życzę im by ich dusze zaznały spokoju… Straszna tragedia.

Alleluja!

In Poland there is a tradition on splashing water on peoples on Easter Monday. It originates from pagan times and was a kind of purifying ritual. We call it Śmigus Dyngus and it is a lots of fun. These eggs are actually kind of water gun we use on this day. For me they are a sort of synthesis of Polish Easter tradition – painted eggs and purifying water. Happy Easter!

Czy znacie te jajka? Dla mnie są one syntezą polskiej tradycji wielkanocnej, nie tej kościelnej, ale ludycznej. W moim Miasteczku nazywamy je “psikawkami”. Wesołych Świąt!
