Hello! I'm blogging amidst boxes and stuff over here, can't wait for the move to be over so that things could go back to normal :)
I made this capri pants last week, for this special little boy in my life, my cutie pie nephew, Imran Iskandar, who just turned 3.
He is the same age as Hanan but was born in May. We had a foursome birthday celebration for Imran (May), Hanan (July), my sister (July) and me (June). This year we combined these birthdays in one party, very economical lol. Birthdays have always been a family event for us. We usually gather at my parents' place, cook together and my dad would say the prayer and we all eat and be merry. The highlight for the kids have always been opening the presents at the end of the party. This year I made my favourite Shrimp and Mango Cocktail. It was a big hit at the party!
The easiest salad ever. Just lightly boil some shrimps, cube some ripe mangoes, scatter them on a bed of lettuce and dribble salad dressing over (here I just use Thousand Island). Best served cold. Yummm!
Back to the capri pants, I made it using linen and patched the pockets using my favourite green print. It fits Imran just nice, I just hope he won't outgrow it too fast. I used a pattern from the latest Cucito, Summer 2010.
That's it for now. I'm saving the special birthday dress I sewed for Hanan later. I promise will blog about it soonest as we move into the new home. I have big plans there especially for my bigger and better sewing cum study room. At 9 this morning (July 5th) I'm off to register for my MBA, a new chapter in my life...fingers crossed!
Thank you for reading friends, have a beautiful, loving day :)
