Uus raamat / New book

Ja siin siis on mu järgmine, värske trükilõhnaline käsitööraamat - VILDIST MÄNGUTOIDUD

Seekord meisterdasin vildist mängusööki. Oli ääretult põnev seda raamatut teha - mõelda kavandeid ning lõikeid ning lõpuks asi ise ka valmis teha. Vilt on üks ütlemata tore materjal, millele leiab ikka ja jälle uut kasutust.  

Rõõmsat mängulusti!

This is my new craft book - PLAY FOOD FROM FELT

ETSY SHOP IS OPENED!

Those who have visited my craft-blog have probably noticed my great interest in handcraft. I just love it and I love to do it!

One of my weaknesses is that I do not focus on one thing. I like to learn and try new things – to try different materials or techniques. I just got an idea or vision and I have to do it! The creative process is one of the most exciting periods – to work out the designs and to find the right materials.
I will never make crafts for just making it! For me it is creation!

And now I have opened my craft web-shop in Etsy.com to share some of my works with you.

The shop name is

IKICraftByIrena



At the moment you can find:

Handmade cards

My interest in making the cards began when I started a tradition to send the handmade Christmas cards to my friends. It was some sort of reaction to quickly spread habit to send Christmas greetings via e-mails. And after that came birthday cards, wedding cards and baby cards.






Handmade jewelry

In jewelry I like the uniqueness. Handmade jewelry is something you can wear during the day or evening.  I use different materials – pearls, beads, felt, polymer clay. I put so much effort in designing and making my jewelry that I usually do not make them more than just one item.

Among my jewelry you can also find embroidered pendants. For my cross stitch patterns which I have especially made for these pendants I have got inspiration from traditional embroidery from Muhu island (Estonia). For 1 cm2 I have made at least 196 stitches. So I have achieved small but colorful embroidery. The dimensions of the oval pendant is 9 x 6 cm and round pendant 7,5 x 7,5 cm.

I guess jewelry is my another weakness…



Decorative ornaments


For many years making the Christmas ornaments have been my true love. Christmas time is such a period in a year that inspires me a lot. Every year I have design a new set of ornaments. The main material I have used is felt as it is just lovely material. But also beads, polymer clay, paper. In 2015 I have even published a small book of making the Christmas ornaments.

Some time later the handmade hearts were added to Christmas ornaments. As a lovely gift to the friends…




Nüüdsest on avatud Etsy.com keskkonnas minu käsitöö pood!
