Happy New Year. I hope it is not too late.

This year, I want to focus on my sewing business. I want to note every cents I make, monthly. So that I can keep track of this small, so-called-business of mine. And, blog about it.

Last year, I sew mostly for pleasure. And to try more designs and pattern. So this year, I want to sew more clothes. Haha.. Only if my baby let me. But she'd been a good girl so far. Alhamdulillah for that. 

I'll share the pictures of clothes I sew later ya. 

So, wish me luck.


SEW more,
BLOG more,
and LOVE more.

Assalamualaikum.

Pretty common view, kan? But this is a view of sunrise, the sea and the mainland of Sabah from my bedroom window.

Imagine waking up to this every morning.

A Year Ago There's A Baby

A year ago, there's a baby.
Precious, adorable, beautiful, sweet baby girl.
A wonderful blessing.
A gift from Allah S.W.T.
Born on this special date. 03 October 2014.

A baby that filled the empty place in my heart.

When you arrived, everything changed.
My world gets bigger.
My heart grows fuller.
And my life means more.
Because YOU are in it.

Nur Hidayah.
You are my bundle of joy. My sunshine. My rainbow.
Happy birthday sweet baby.

I LOVE YOU.

Tova Top












Love at first sight. That's right. A pattern by WIKSTEN. 






This pattern is for intermediate sewing skills. My first time sewing a blouse with an existing pattern. I usually draft blouse pattern myself. See these links here. Lacey Bib Blouse, Buttoned Bib Blouse, and Blouse Muslimah. You can also view all my self-drafted blouse pattern posts under Blouse/Tops/Tunic Label.

The pattern are pretty much the same. However, that collar look soo yummy, and I have never made that before. So I gave it a try. The advantage, I can learn new skills, AND honing them. Yeay!! I only adjusted the pattern size a bit to better fit me.

My kinda top. Loose and comfy, yet stylish. My favorite.

::Tempahan Raya 2015:: Kurung Moden Eyelash Lace

Assalammualaikum.

Raya tahun ni tak sangka boleh ambil tempahan menjahit dengan baby 9 bulan. Sebenarnya aku tiada perancangan untuk mengambil tempahan, takut tak termampu untuk menyiapkan. Tapi alhamdulillah, mungkin rezeki anak, boleh juga ku menyiapkan tempahan tertunggak tahun lepas dan tempahan untuk raya tahun ni. Paling laju merempit pada bulan Ramadhan, menjahit pada waktu malam dan selepas sahur. Tempahan kali ni pun daripada kawan pejabat saja.

Ni nak cerita design baju yang ditempah kawanku, Kurung Moden Eyelash Lace namanya haa.... Dia mau begitu-begini, aku pun ikut saja lah. Turn out cantik sangat la pulak. Lace tu dia beli online. Nantilah kot aku beli buat sedondon dengan anak.

My Lovely Skirt Bag

I just remember that I haven't blog about this bag. My favorite, so far. Beautiful AND large. Finished dimension of this bag is 11" height, 14" wide and 6" deep.This pattern is michellepatterns. Brilliant.

I use this beautiful roses-printed denim I bought at Kamdar Jalan TAR. Lovely, isn't it? I made this bag for a very special occasion, to welcome our beautiful daughter, Nur Hidayah. She was born on October 2014, and I finished this bag on September. Perfect timing.

Instead of shopping for a new diaper bag, I decided to try out this 4-Pocket Skirt Bag pattern because it looks funky yet girly. I also love the single and adjustable long strap, totally fuss-free, especially while holding a baby . I made some upgrade from the original pattern by adding zipper to the main entrance, adding another zipped pocket at the back, because every bag HAS to have one, and another open pocket inside for my tab. So overall, I made a 6-Pocket Skirt Bag. That, my friend, is the beauty of making your own bag. You can custom it to cater YOUR need and taste.


She's a looker, ain't she?
The side pockets really add character to it

The boss that keep everything inside, especially if Mommy is running, or multitasking, or flipping upside down...
ROOOOMYYYY, and 3 open pockets for smaller stuff, whatever that is...

A must-have feature for safety precaution. I love to put some money and coins in here so I don't have to take out my wallet. Fuss free.  

The only thing I want to add to this lovely bag is an elastic band to hold a thermos and water bottles.
