Crafty Swap - From Me to Ms Ajjah

I managed! In the nick of time & decided not to keep it a secret. I made lovely Ms. Ajjah an itty bitty fabric basket and a pretty huge pincushion yeay!

I love this little project. I realised that I truly missed sewing just because and not something for sale. It's fun and really comforting. The fabric is my first attempt of the popular Pink Penguin tute. I don't know why I did not make one earlier, it's such an easy project and I like the result. The handles turned out a tad too long and the lining is a little large too. But I still think its pretty and I'm glad I chose to make this. I plan to make more for myself. It's great to have beside my sewing machine, filled with thread cutter, needles and just about any sewing paraphernalia that could fit into it. Major love!

The pincushion is a last minute whip up. It's larger than anticipated, you could stick A LOT of pins on that lol. And I made those covered buttons, another first time for me.

So, these babies are on the way to you Ajjah. I hope you like 'em :)

I know mine is on the way from Aim, will blog about it once its here, can't wait!

I hope everyone in the swap is having fun too, would love to see the projects blogged about. I am back to more sewing to finish up on orders. Till later, stay beautiful girly girl! :)

Meet Our New Baby...

Ok this pic makes me look HUGE!

My girls love animals particularly cats. I had one when I was younger but have not adopted any ever since I got married. So when Aisha begged & begged for a kitten I told her okay if she improves her grades. Figured our new home is large enough for a kitten to grow and we now have a small yard for her to run free.  And man...she hit the books like no other & actually did just that. 

So, I kept my words and scoured to adopt a kitten. When I searched there was one Persian cat on offer and like hundreds are interested to adopt. My heart ache for all the scrawny looking domestic kittens waiting...they stand a slimmer chance. So I told my girls - we are going to adopt a kucing kampung (domestic short hair) because it's harder for them to get adoted by a loving family. The girls agreed.

We went all the way to Balakong to adopt her. She was just a tiny 2 months old, a our new baby - Princess Gaga!

Oh how regal I am...look at me all posh and stylin'...

Yep, the cat in Aisha's drawing is a portrait of her beloved kitten, GAGA lol...This one is a delight. She's so active and cheeky and naughty and the girls just adore her. Completely litter trained, saves me lots of headache. Nowadays she's so attached to the girls, she'll cry if they are not around. The vet says she's healthy, she eats a lot and thriving well. One thing for sure, the sewing studio is off limits to her!

Having Gaga teaches my girl responsibilities. And I could see how the love and tenderness they feel for the pet is shaping them to be more caring and loving. I think this is a good decision for the family (thank you hubby for going along with this even when I know you're not really fond of a furry pet *hugs*).

A start of another busy week, til later ladies, have a wonderful day! :)

Aisha's Art

I swear I am not going to whine about my studies today. I bet you’re bored to death reading about it over & over, sorry! J

Picture taken April 2010

Remember in this random post, there's a photo of my girl Aisha holding her drawing?

She is really into art & drawing, but as of today, we have not sent her to any drawing/art classes. Reason is either we can’t afford it or the one we can always clashes with her other classes. But I never stopped encouraging her. I bought her the supplies and books and taught her to just draw either based on what she sees or what she imagines.

I told her, life itself is art. The only limit is your imagination…fly free and just draw and color to your heart desire, be inspired and in return, inspire others.

So here are a few of her drawings I manage to capture. I keep telling myself to frame them…am gonna make another Ikea trip soon for their affordable frames...

What do you think? Some of these were drawn when she was younger (8 to 9 years old). Her favourite medium at the moment is oil pastel because of its vibrant colors. Personally I love them all, but then again, I’m permanently biased  :D

I am seriously thinking of setting up a personal gallery blog for her art & crafty stuff (she is also into sewing now I'll blog about it in another post). We might lose track of what she created in her younger years and I think having her collection in digital form is a great way to preserve her work & the memories. Will do that soon :)

The animals in the drawings are Aisha’s recent works. She learnt how to draw those using a great book by our local, hugely talented illustrator – Emila Yusof. The book, titled Seni Lukisan Haiwan Bersama Kak Emila, costs less than RM10 and such a great buy for my Aisha.

Little Hanan of course wanna be part of the action too!

Before I go, how’s the progress of your Swap project ladies?

I managed to cut & sewed mine and around 50% ready now. Can’t wait to get it done and send it to my lovely partner Ms Ajjah!

Get the sew on girls, thank you for reading and happy crafting! J

Some Sewing....

Hye there's life? I hope its not as topsy turvy as crazy rite now in the house, as I scramble to keep everything and everyone together. I am definitely feeling the heat now and oh God, please give me strength to brave this semester out *pray hard*

So, to lift my spirit up a bit, took sometime to put together these tiles. Mind you, that Some Sewing in the title should be Some Sewing from Ages Ago or something's hard for me to finish even one project in a day this last few days. A few stitches a day is already a huge accomplishment. But, since sewing destresses (is that even a word?) me, I still sneaked it in either late at night or very early in the morning. It keeps me happy AND motivated.

The above is a simple A-line sleeveless top I made for my niece baby Widad. My sis in law placed an order months ago & I still owe her one more outfit. The lovebirds fabric in black is now rare, that was my last half yard. Notice how the ties are at the shoulders? Something different, major LOVE! The pattern is modified from Cucito (Japanese pattern).

This one is a sweet, simple pinafore type dress. I used snap buttons on the shoulder (Kak Azidah if you're reading this *hugs* to you! ;) ). The fabric is the sweetest shade of pink, Monaluna dots and Art Gallery swirly combo. This pinny is roomy, great for layering with a t-shirt underneath.

I am off to study for 2 more papers, the midterm exam is scheduled this Friday & next Wednesday. My marketing exam did not go well so I need to buck up for these two. Sigh...I hate exams, really I do...

Let me leave you on a cheerful note though. Yesterday, my little Hanan asked me on the way out...

Hanan    : "Mummy tak nak gi Pos Laju Laju terrrr??"
Me         : "Huh?"
Hanan   : "Mummy...tak nak gi Pos LAJU LAJU terrr??"
Me        : "Pos Laju Laju??? Hahahahaha!!!!"
(I have no idea how to translate this to English, it's too literal but funny to me. It's about Hanan thinking that me using express posting/shipping means it runs really fast or something like that :D )

Her comments made my day...everytime! My girls are the very reason I am hanging on, tight.
Till later ladies, stay beautiful :)

Bubble Skirt and A Pause

Hello lovelies, how are you today? Beautiful as always I hope :)

I can't get any sewing done this week as I have an upcoming Marketing Management mid-term exam this Thursday. The worst thing is, earlier on Tuesday, I have to present our (virtual) company's business plan to potential investors for funding. Oh, did I mention that I have already setup a business to run in my experiential business training? It's a trading business, we're running it in a group. I was elected CEO and now having a tough time preparing all the financial forecasts! But I am learning, and I could feel myself absorbing everything like a hungry sponge. I am thriving on pure adrenaline here, bring it on!

Ok, back to sewing. I mentioned in previous post I made a skirt for Hanan, which was weeks ago. Well, it's a design I've wanted to try for quite sometime and when my girls begged for skirts I took time out to sew a quick one for the little miss. It's a bubble skirt! The fabric is an arty Bird on Limb from Bari J's Art Journal collection. Super beautiful print, and I have this thing for prints that looks like painting. The pattern is from Nat & Jenny on etsy. I have one caution if you are attempting anything bubbly soon, pay attention to the fabric print direction! You don't want to learn the hard way like I did, had to rip some major seams there when I realized the print went upside down lol...

This bubble skirt has a dropped yoke, so it falls a little below the knees and I think it's so cute on a toddler. Lil Hanan was of course very happy, been wearing this skirt every other day now. It's heartwarming to see my little girl asking for mommy made clothing to wear every time after her bath. I'm one happy momma (and a busy one too lol).

So, I will get back to serious studying business now.  Already scheduled to continue sewing after the exam as I am down to a few last custom orders for the year. Thank you for reading friends, have a crafty, happy weekend! *hugs*

Pondok Craft Charity Drive

I just had to squeeze in a few hours to sew up some of these zipper pouches for the back to school charity project organised by Kak Ayu over at Pondok Craft. Zipper pouch is the perfect project for me as I could quickly sew them up, one or two every morning before I leave for class. And a great way to use up my ever growing fabric scraps.

I hope these would brighten up the days of the boys and girls at the orphanage. Wish I could hug each one of them, sending these with thoughts of love and prayers for them.

Meanwhile, I have sent an email to all the participants who signed up for the Crafty Swap, all 30 of you. Thank you so much for joining, I can't wait to see all your wonderful creations. So ladies, let's get sewing! :)

My Sweet Aisha Tuns 10!

My darling angel, you turn 10 today.

And look at you, my sweet, sweet love...slowly blooming in front of my eyes, into a beautiful young lady. When I first saw you 10 years ago, I knew you're beautiful, but to see you today, takes my breath away, everytime...

Right now, you (are).... :
....the sweetest girl next have a shy & quiet demeanor, very different from mommy & your vivacious little sister. It's obvious you're taking after Abah, your beloved father :)
....also very sensitive...your eyes swell up in tears whenever mummy or abah give you a pep talk, but you usually try to hide it from me...
....the one your little sister looks up to. The very source of her envy as, being seven years apart, little Hanan obviously wants to be like the wise, big girl, kakak Aisha... the first class at school, as you have been since Standard 1.
....very into crafty stuff - you love felt sewing, art & drawing, handmade greeting cards for your friends, origami, you name it.
....showing interests of being an entrepreneur.  One day, after gifting a handmade felt brooch to your friend, you came home asking my permission to sew more. It turned out your friends placed order of 5 more brooches! reading. Anything from simple Mr Men series, The Magic Kitten to Enid Blyton.
....attend Cambridge Young Learners English language class, once a week
....don't like to wear dresses. Only top/tunic with pants/jeans/leggings or baju kurung. And you're ready to wear tudung soon, bless you...
....still hugs and kisses mummy & abah all the time :)

Aisha Alia, you are the reason I am here, striving, determined to be someone you could turn to when you need me. We've gone through so much together my darling, thank you for staying by my side for the last 10 years and I am hoping for hundreds more years to come. My prayers for your eternal happiness and meaningful life ahead.

Happy birthday sayang...mummy and abah love you so much *hugs & kisses*

To join, simply comment below with your email address. I will contact you to inform who your partner is & you can proceed to get to know your partner and get the address detail by emailing her.

Since my main passion is sewing & fabrics, please only sewing projects from fabrics (not felt etc) for this swap ya? It can also involve embroidery if you like. I'd love to see your creativity at play :)

For this debut swap, I'm restricting it to the local participants. Let me see how it goes & perhaps  I will up the excitement ante by making this an International swap in the next round.

Pleated Skirt for Aisha

In between sewing custom order dresses for my customers, I took a break, like, for 1-2 hours to sew up something simple for my girls. If I don't do that, they keep pestering me with their requests, I could go crazy! So some skirts would pacify them...for awhile lol

Just a simple pleated, cheerleader style skirt for my sweet Aisha. She wanted one to match the hat I made her. The result looks a bit stiffy coz I did not cut the contrasting print and sew rectangles like what Maya prescribed in her simple instruction for making this skirt. I just simply top stitch the polkadot print on top of a long rectangle of the main print. It works the same but naturally mine is bulkier.

Oh doesn't really matter when the girls are this happy, right? 

Hanan took one look at her big sis's new skirt and immediately ask about her similar skirt I made before. I blogged about it here. Hers is in denim and so cute for this style of skirt. I made Hanan a new skirt too last week but that will be for the next blog post.

I also managed to finish these camera strap covers ordered by Azah months ago. Now that my good friend Maya is back sewing and listing some camera strap covers in the shop, I am temporarily closing orders for these. 

I am so happy Maya is back, we have this unsaid pact that if one of us is unable to sew (due to work demands etc etc) at least we can pass on customer queries to another one of us who is sewing. So, you see, even though we're operating a separate business, with our own separate labels, we are sewing similar stuff. But instead of competing with each other, and be all sour, we turned this into a cooperation thingy, which is healthy. I remember what Maya once said to me, there's no point hoarding the orders, we are so small (one woman operations), it's not like we are able to sew up all the orders on our own if we get say, hundreds of them! Let's share and help each other. So true Mai, I am so lucky to have a level headed, mature sewing friend like you *hugs*

Last but not least, I've drawn up some fun plans for this blog based on your response in the previous post. Thank you so much for the insight, at least I have an idea what my audience is looking for. And BIG hugs to you who are keeping me company on this blog. Will blog about what I have planned soon. Stay tuned!

Sisters Sisters & This Blog

Remember this dress? I sewed 2 of these beauties for a lovely customer Allyza as she wanted her girls to wear them to a blue themed wedding, size 2T and 5T. I personally love the combo, as I rarely sew anything blue. For this vintage style dress, its best to pair large scale print with a smaller scale lining & ribbon sash. Absoulutely stunning. And I just squealed with delight when Allyza sent me the pics of her girls wearing them!

Adorbs!! Pretty, cheeky sisters, in Lovemelots dresses. Love them at this age, aren't they beautiful? Thank you so much Allyza for sending me the pics, I truly appreciate it :)

And about this blog. I've been thinking of some new content to make it more interesting. I want this to be more than just a place for me to document my sewing, but also where you, lovely readers, could come for some fun activities or read about some useful info related to sewing and the small business that many aspires to do. 

We Malaysians are an entrepreneurial lot. Especially us, ladies. The drive comes from mainly one thing - our children. Being in a developing country where women makes up almost 50% of the total workforce, you can totally understand why more and more of us ladies want to start our own business, perhaps from home, and be able to raise the children ourselves. Going out to work for most of us is not by choice, but being good at multi tasking, we can still manage, even though in our hearts we struggle with the guilt and desire to be close to our children at all times.

Let me know if you have some suggestions what you'd like to see more in this blog. Would you join me if I plan activities such as swaps or sewalongs? Or how about a beginner sewing series? Or Sewing/Craft Business 101? A sewing challenge? More tutorials? Recipes? Or you'd prefer the blog to stay as it is? Please share in the comments, I'd love to hear from you.

Till later, lots of love and so much more from Putrajaya to the special, beautiful YOU. *hugs*

The Sweetest Little Princess Dress

I know many of you were smitten with this dress I sewed in previous post. The feeling is mutual! I sewed the dress for the first time, using this pattern. It's a small 3 months size but the loose, swingy style would easily fit the baby for a lot longer.

My review of this pattern would be, a dream to sew! It has facings, which provides me with the extra challenge I crave. I enjoyed the learning process and of course the fabric combo just made it sweeter! After sewing the many dresses, one thing I learned is the smaller the size, the more challenging it is to sew! You see, those teeny tiny armholes....oh well...I am so forgetting that mighty task when I saw the picture of the precious little princess wearing the dress...

Isn't she adorable? pretty as her name...thank you Fyn for sending me the pics and am so happy you love the dress :)

I'll be back with more posts soon lovely ladies, thanks so much for stopping by *hugs*

Hats Off!

Yup, hats off to you for sticking to this blog and keep coming back to read even when my posts are few and far between. Thank you! *hugs*

Now, I have two little girls whom are still at the "love-everything-mommy-made-for-me" stage. Deep down in my heart I know this won't last forever (especially with my pre teen Aisha) and I have to cherish it while I can.

My girls love to hang out in the studio. And when I'm busy sewing custom orders for the customers, the little one would be on my side saying "Tiut nya mommy! Ni Anan punyer terr?" Translation : Kiutnya mommy ni Hanan punya ke? aka  "So cute mom, is this mine?"

And my answer will always be the variation of - No dear this one is for auntie's baby. And she'd show her disappointment by asking WHEN exactly I'm going to sew for her! After much pestering and the big sister joining the request, I made my girls some hats.

I made four of them actually (NOT in one sitting lol)...and they are all reversible so the girls actually have 8 hats! Enough to last till next year :)

I'm sure Malaysian readers are well aware of the big name in handmade sunhat, Okinokiyo right? Mai, the owner/sewer is my twitter sewing buddy and I love all her bright and fun sun hats for little ones. I would have bought from her if I don't sew, but the fun part of making these hats is when the girls open up my stash closet and chose the fabrics themselves. The one above is what Aisha wanted, a fan of purple. I mixed solid heavy cotton with Monaluna's lavender dots. Very sweet!

Now, this little miss wanted the same hat design but a different print. I was really surprised when she chose this Sis Boom paisley and not the many fun kiddie print I have in stash! She must be attracted to the bright colors. I paired it with a bright pink & blue print. These hats have pleats on top part of it which makes it very forgiving in any wonky-ness when sewing lol

These two were actually made a few weeks ago. A tulip hat which Hanan calls topi ayam (chicken hat) LOL...she saw the print and immediately decided on the name. It's a tad small for her but so very cute! The one Aisha is wearing is a wide brim hat which was a nightmare to sew. And as you can see, I paired quilting cotton with a heavier beige corduroy (bought locally at Nagoya). Thus, it's droopy and weird looking. But the girls love how girly that hat is.

This is my first time making hats. The patterns are all from Japanese pattern book, Cucito. It's a highly gratifying project because it takes very little time to finish. But, I must say, sewing anything circular is not what I do well. Like the wide brim sunhat & the flat round top hats, they all give me headache as little pleats would form whenever I sew the circular things in urgghhh....

But these are for my girls, and because they adore their sewing momma, a little wonky-ness means nothing to them compared to the loving and new handmade stuff they get hahaha

Thanks for reading lovelies, have a beautiful day!

Experiential Learning

Thank you friends for the wonderful advice and insights in my previous post. I made the decision to temporarily close new custom order at least for this semester. I will complete all orders I have committed to before this and what left of my time would go to my studies and family. I also would like to sew more for myself, without the pressure of on time completion lol

Speaking of experiential learning, life itself is exactly that. We grow from our daily doings and learn from our mistakes along the way. But, formal learning is a bit different in a sense that it is guided, meant to achieve a certain set of learning objectives. This semester I am undergoing an experiential business training program organised by the university with an International consultant. Just 30 of us, together in a group, going to work in  Jalan Ampang, every Monday & Tuesday, for 12 weeks! The CEO is a Londoner, with 3 locals in the top management. And yes, I am taking the train to work gosh...I've never done that and I totally NOT liking it :(

I am only in my 2nd week there. We are right now employees of a company. Next 2 weeks we are expected to set up and run our own business, in simulation. This program is running concurrent in 42 countries and we are expected to do international trade. It's very, very exciting for me as I learn the proper document flow in a business. The important lesson I've learned so far : What is the main reason majority of new businesses fail? 2 things : No proper document (recordkeeping) & poor cash flow management!

Sounds like a no brainer but you'd be surprised to know that so many businesses are doing it. This applies to ALL business, even if you are operating a small scale, homebased craft/sewing business, these 2 are a MUST.

Ok, gotta go run my virtual business now. I will write more of what I learned in upcoming posts. If  you're bored with all that biz talk, more eye candy for you! I sewed these for the Eiduladha orders. Have a beautiful days ladies!

Selamat Meanyambut Hari Raya Korban kepada semua pembaca Muslim :)

A Little Update of My Life

Guess what? The new semester has begun...again! Where did the time goes? Sigh....During the shortest term break ever I cut lots & lots of fabrics for custom orders, finished some and still sewing.

This also means I already received my first semester results (which I've tweeted but recording here for my girls to read one day). Not too bad. I got 2As, 1A- and 1 B+ with a total of 3.813 CGPA, alhamdulillah.... After a long and hard look at the effort I put in last semester and what I managed to pull off, I feel, deep down in my heart, that I COULD get straight As if I focus 100% on my MBA and not sew at all. Could I?

Perhaps I should stop taking custom orders altogether and only offer ready to ship items. You see, I love custom orders mainly because you don't gamble what would sell and what wouldn't. You only produce what the customer actually want to buy and this saves costs. In operations management this is called the Pull system. It's part of lean manufacturing concept adopted widely by Japanese corporations. I discovered that this is the BEST system for even the smallest scale production ie. the business model of most home based sewing/craft business.

BUT if I stop taking custom orders, the game is ON. I like the idea of having full creative control of the designs. The best part of sewing to me is choosing the fabrics, mixing and matching. I can't do this with custom orders. And what most customers don't realize is there are tonnes of fabrics that do not look as pretty in pictures but once sewn & creatively mixed with other fabrics, stunning! However, the downside of this is, being a one woman operation, I can't be producing the same design, one for every sizes. I could only pray that what I produce will be snapped up by someone with a  child of the correct size & there will be the inevitable emails from customers asking me to sew one more of the same design in a different size and I usually don't have the heart to say no...

But of course I could not do it at all, you might say. Close the biz and just sew for leisure! Okay my answer to that is : My girls don't need 200 dresses lol! With all the fabrics in the previous post, I WANT to sew & sell my creations.

Tsk. Decisions, decisions....any thoughts ladies?

This semester I am taking 3 subjects with an additional experiential business training program which is very exciting yet taxing. You'll find me not replying your emails or texts till late at night every Monday & Tuesday. I'll write more about this in the next post.

Before I go, some eye candy of dresses sewn by yours truly. Have a gorgeous day girls *hugs* :)

Stash Therapy

To be honest, I don't know what to blog about anymore...currently, life is so uninspiring, not exciting at all. I am still sewing, but only for custom orders placed months ago. Other than that...errmm..nothing. I don't really go out except for post office trips where I drag my little one along. At home, I cook, I eat, I play with the girls & I sew. I rarely watch TV too, only some cartoons dvd with Hanan while I do....ermmm.....this!

Mood lifting eh? Yup, these are my big remnants. They are too big for the scrap bin, too small to join the half yard folds, so I invented a folding system (if you can call it that haha)...that perfectly hides the hideous cutouts bits from the pieces and turned them into cute 4" x 4" little fabric sandwiches (please don't be fooled by the zoomed pics, they are really tiny).

So afterwards, turn them over and let them lie happily, folded side up in the crate. Nice?  I'm sure many of you have these precious remnants waiting for the perfect applique, stripwork, piecing project to come by but what a pain folding them! Dangling bits can be annoying. If you're interested I'll show you how I do it, I call it The Reader's Digest Technique LOL *hint hint*

So what about the other half yards and full yards? How did I fare in my fabric folding extravaganza? Errrmmmm.....not too shabby?

 I swear, I AM on fabric diet right now. No more new fabric till at least these are depleted to half.....*bow in shame*

Have a great, wonderful, happy, happy day!!

Hanan's First Drawing!

Hye! I survived my final exam pheww! Now am recuperating from all those sleepless nights, when I practically abused my poor body with too much coffee lol

And look at what we discovered last night? Hanan's very own first drawing! If you wonder, they are stick figures of our family, dad, mom, big sis Aisha & little Hanan :D 

We were so amazed with this coz Hanan had never drawn before, only doodles. But this time, each figure is drawn the same way, like there's a system: two round eyes, a mouth, two long legs and hands wide open! Exactly the same way, very confidently drawn & she only varies the height of the little people.

The little miss in action. And it is now confirmed that both my girls are left-handed...You see, hubby and me are not, but both my parents are left-handed. This means that this trait actually skipped a generation :)

Just so that I won't leave you without a sewing related stuff, this is a simple long sleeve top I sewed for Aisha before we go to the library, to study, last week. Yup, this time both mother and daughter were having final exams in the same week, you could just imagine the stress level in the house lol. This photos were taken very early in the morning, and my lovely Aisha still looks sleepy with eye-bags and all...she studied so, so hard, I pray for her success, as always...
