So I decided to try out drafting a pattern for my friend Ulai... She'll be a bridesmaid this coming October.. And she can't find any tailor that can accept her order due to Eid Fitri is just around the corner.. Pitty her...! She begged me to make one for her.. as she is really in a very "desperate" mode.. hehehe.. So.. even though I have many projects due in a few days.. I try my best to squezzzzze my schedule just for her...
Luckily I bought this magazine.. it has diagrams on how to draft pattern with adjustment and standard size.. I just follow & adjust where appropriate..
Really hope this would turn out ok... This is a very "challenging" project for me.. Can't afford for any mistakes.. It must turn out P.E.R.F.E.C.T.... Pray for me..!

Some more learning episodes...

Now.. what is this for? Double tracing wheel? Normal tracing wheel has only 1 wheel.. This one makes life easier.. Especially when you need to add seam allowances to your pattern.. no need to measure every inch of your pattern.. Just adjust the wheel to the right width.. then run the roller along your pattern piece.. EASY KAN?
Another madness... my rotary cutter, cutting mat & ruller.. I promise.. I must make tonnes of patchwork & quilts...
Believe it or not... I may be the 50million-th person who bought this sewing machine.. Cos, I officially paid for the machine & brought it home on the 22 July 2008 itself! I wonder if Epal notice it.. I doubt it... I should have won some lucky-buyer-draw or something... Dream on girl...! Who are you to claim as such...
Well.. its ok.. As long as I'm satisfied with what I bought and the projects I produced.. its all that matters to me..
Thanks to Epal KK who had organise a briefing on this 50 million thingy... and give away the calender-key-chain with the 50 million logo in front, and also a car sticker. There will be a lucky-dip-hunt for those who's car was found with this sticker on, will get 1 year free membership! So.. I haven't put up my sticker yet... I will soon.. Who knows I might win..?
Kasut Manik ( Beaded Slippers/Sandals)
Hmm.. matching Baju Kurung with Sandals for Eidul Fitri! Cool eh?Sarung Kusyen riben ( Ribbon Cussion Cover)
Langsir ( Scalloped curtain )
Wow.. I've just started joining Epal since 22 July 2008 (its not even 2 months yet).. but look at the projects I took??!?!? This must be goood!

Look what I bought this time? I received the Pos Express pack yesterday from Snazzy & Such ! Although there was a bit of delay... blame it on the Postman Pat! Tinn had posted the stuff last week.. Wow! "POS EXPRESS - Dijamin sampai esok"???? Instead, it only turned up yesterday..
Just not my luck..
I bought this bright color Yokey Top (CUTE ISN'T IT?? my fav colors!)... Tailoring shears (wow.. I'm a tailor?).. and 3-in-a-set Bobbin (the 3 white square plastic).
See this top - really comfy cotton it is... Admire her workmanship.. very neat! Thanks Snazzy & Such
Although its time for bed.. I quickly put on this top on to Maya.. for photo session. Mind her boring look.. hehehe.. she hates it when I had my hp cam pointing at her.. and tried to look away..
Yeah.. she's pretending she didn't see me.. concerntrating with her giant book.
So.. try visit Snazzy & Such to see her cool sewing stuffs & crafts...!

I will make this for "display item only".. hehehe .. cos I think toddlers who wears it will get blisters... Its hard as rock!
Hey.. this sole was made with anti-slip at bottom of sole (this is the brakes feature I meant.. heheeh)... Yeah.. I bought it all the way from US. I can't find it here or anywhere in Malaysia online stores .. or is there any online "seller" who sells this material online? If anybody knows where to buy this .. please tell me.
Now I can make soles for toddlers.. I guess its limited to 18 mnths only (for security purposes).
