DIY - Tote bag from IKEA rug

Tereza Šťastná

I have a great DIY for you. Easy peasy tote bag from IKEA rug. It's done in couple of hours and it's quite cheap so you will manage to make it pre-vacay stress. I discovered this amazing DIY on my favorite blog Honestly WTF, so all the credit goes there. Anyway, it would be a shame not to show you the process and the result of mine. I admit the video was made a year ago so I can say, that the bag has been worn by me ever since.  

And when you're done with your bag, I would love to see the result, so don't forget to tag me on your social media. My IG account @dogandpineapple:) 

You'll need: 

  • IKEA SIGNE rug
  • sewing machine with heavy duty needle and thread
  • leather or faux leather handles 
  • tassles and a string

Mercedes Benz Prague Fashion Week Backstage

Tereza Šťastná

 It has been over a week since the last show at Mercedes Benz Prague Fashion Week closed and it is time to reflect. 

 I was lucky enough to see two shows this season. First one was Miro Sabo and second my beloved Petra Ptáčková to which I even got to help a little and yes, I learned a new sewing trick. 

 Anyway, here I am reporting some sneak peek photographs of what is going on in the backstage, because this year, for the first time in my life, I got in. And let me tell you... Things are chaotic as everyone says. But what I remember from art school, the installations were always being finished the last minute and an hour before art jury came, there was just regular mess of installing. 

 Plus, it happens in the biggest fashion houses as well. Would you like to see? Check The Day Before series on M2M.tv, documentary series following the biggest designer names 24 hours before fashion show.

SS16 Trend - Bomber / Varsity Jacket

Tereza Šťastná

I know you are all probably head-over-heels (and no, I don't mean BJ business to your Sugar Daddy as Iggy Azalea implies) from all the FW16 Fashion Weeks and trust me I am too but little hint! The SS16 season is almost here and we need to adapt our closets to it! Of course in the best responsible and budget friendly way! 

So here I am with new short series covering the spring trends and helping you find source on the world wide web so you can recreate the trend by yourself. 

Today we are going to talk about THE BOMBER JACKET because it's still little bit cold outside. And because it= s very timeless piece to have on your wardrobe. People very often mistake it with VARSITY jacket and until two days ago I was one of them. But I stumbled upon both terms describing what I thought is the same type of a jacket and wondered what is the difference. I've researched and now it's time to pass the wisdom to you, my dear readers.

 I've made one bomber jacket recently and have to say, they are not even that hard to sew. I skipped pockets just because of my very light fabric choice. 

Here are some bomber/varsity patterns you can download online:
