Etsy open!

For some unknown reason I opened my Etsy shop. I decided to go back to batik painting and I made a couple of cotton pillowcases. I also made some embroidery, a couple of linen bags. If anyone curious about what my other batiks look like, go under the batik label on the right side.

I am into this folk looking style of an embroidery that looks like you cannot actually embroider. I especially like Japanese sashiko, the simply stitch of it.
In the shop, I was thinking of putting up few vintage folk pieces that I can get here easily but the Czech Post charges huge money for shipping packages abroad. They charge incredible twenty dollars for the pacakge up to 1 kg! The textiles are fine though, they can be shipped as a letter and that lowers the cost several times.
Here goes the shop!

Congratulations Magda! I just went over to your shop: your things are beautifully made. I'll be back in a couple of hours to check the batik link... I'm in the middle of making dinner right now.

to je vtipné, já uvažovala o etsy a nakonec jsem dnes skončila na českém fleru :-)
Tak gratuluji! můžeme si vyměnit zkušenosti z působení na domácí a zahraniční půdě!

I'd somehow missed you batik works, astounding! I like the connection with your mother in this craft. The embroidery on the bags is beautiful (one is already gone, before I managed to take a good peek!). Did you work from embroidery patterns? Congrats again!

Mně se ta Vaše výšivka moc líbí! No s tou cenou je to ošemetný.
Docela ráda bych se podělila o dojmy a pojmy :-) ale asi by bylo lepší emailem, když budete mít chuť ( mám ho v profilu)

Kristina, thank you!
Francesca, I didn't use a pattern, I made it up, the brown bag has little to do with some of my batik scarfs that you have seen, so does the white bag. Geometric shapes, I couldn't do much else.

Congratulations on your Etsy shop! The bag is wonderful, I love it! (the one that got sold yesterday). Beautiful piece of hand-work.

I love that bag. The embroidery is wonderful. I really like the Japanese sashiko as well... actually any Japanese textile craft is fabulous.

Thank you all for nice and supporting words, it helped. I am working on up-date, it takes long, long time, but there will be new bags, maybe some pouches. All embroidery so far.
