Crayon Roll Tutorial

Watch "DIY: Crayon Roll Tutorial" on YouTube

Salam everybody....

Yeay! Harini dh siap lagi satu project. Actually lama dh nak try buat benda alah ni. Tapi dulu xde keperluan lagi.

Sejak Sara dah pandai pegang crayon ni...haa baru la semangat sikit nak buat. Nanti dia jugak yang pakai.

Research adalah based on youtube & blog rakan2.. tapi saya rasa yg paling helpful is from Prudent Baby. Fabric yang dia pakai pun cantik sgt!

Girls' Dress

Salam...

Halu halu. Hope u all are having a wonderful Monday. As for me, today has been purposedly slow-paced. Specifically to catch up on things/errands at home.

Since the last few posts have been nothing but cooking, how about some sewing updates today? *yeay*

Well last week I was called to give a lesson to a group of ladies. They wanted to learn how to make a simple dress for girls. So I whipped up this simple pattern for them. I'll post it here for reference..
Novices out there probably can give it a try. It's pretty easy & straightforward.

My sample here is still work-in-progress coz I intend to finish it together with the ladies during class (still ongoing). For clear illustration purposes.

Ok, hope u'll find this useful.

Tata... :)

Stocking Up on Sewing Supplies

Salam my dear friends...
Today is a happy day for me. Heheh.. coz i've been stocking up on some sewing supplies :)
It's not so much of a 'need' anyway, its more like 'want'. Haha. I can still finish up few projects in hand. But the mere joy of getting new stuff will somehow motivate one to be more creative, hence creating more stuff. *excuses*
I got these from Bunga Reben in KL & some of it from Ikano, ground floor (forgot the name)...

My Ahmazing Schmazing Machines

Salam to all!

Just wanna share some insights on the variety of sewing machines. When I first signed up for sewing lesson back in 2010, my teacher recommended me to get the industrial machine. Which is more durable & heavy duty. So i bought the Singer industrial sewing machine.However it is not flexible as it mainly does straight stictching.

Nxt, I got myself a serger/overlocker. Also from Singer. This time I bought a portable one instead. Coz its cheaper, more suitable for home-usage, and also small in size.

Most recently, hubby got me this Brother Innovis machine. Which is super super amazing! It is the ultimate portable all-in-one machine. Straight stitching, overlock, embroidery, the possibilities are endless! :)

So, to sum it up, if you're a novice & ready to invest in one machine, find one that can at least do these 2 things:
-overlock
-straight stitch
As these will be safe bets for any sewing or craft projects.

*Next on my list:
adjustable seamstress dress form. Like this red one that I found on ebay. Cant wait to get one, so that i can start experimenting on some simple draping techniques ! :)
