Done! Yipee....!

And hi!

It's done. Required some hand-stitch but it's done. 100% done! I love it though not really satisfied with the sewing but I love the outcome, I hope the client love it too!
The hobo bag and the triangular coin pouch

What do you think? Is it alright?

This is the pocket originally supposed to look like
I'll start designing bags with 3D pockets. I love the pockets but to make it, it's kind of tricky. I'm suppose to make the flap of the pocket ravel, but it ravels more than it supposed to, and i just had to do it this way until I find out the way to make the ravels the correct way.

The coin pouch

Now, up to the next order. NEXT!!

Current work in progress

And hi!

While still making bulk orders, I mix in other stuff to make for other orders such as cutting patterns or ironing or maybe designing new design or probably browsing some books for more ideas.

This morning, my little girl, Naydee woke up early. See, I have major problem here, if I tuck her to bed early, she will wake up early, I mean about 4am early, but if I put her to bed late, she'll woke up late but I too will not able to get up early to sew. My whole schedule for a day is very, very full. The never ending house chores, attending to my kids (luckily I have Erisa to help me baby-sit her little sister and brothers) and sewing.

Okay, back to what happened today. She woke up at 4am, luckily her daddy still awake, so I managed to escape from Naydee to sew a little. And this is what I am doing at the moment. I love making this bag, it is a very interesting project, and I had a goosebumps when thinking about the 3D pockets, but actually it is something new I learn while making this bag.

Thank you Azlinda for the opportunity, I really hope it is up to your expectation. Now that I've done the pockets, others will be easy peasy to sew now.

My messy sewing room!

And hi!

Moving to the new place making it possible for me to have my own sewing room. Unfortunately, it's still in mess! Here is the proof. Ha ha...I have to sew in this condition at the time being. Imagine. Sigh.

Sorting the fabrics

My cutting table a.k.a Japanese table

I need to throw away that tikar getah under my machine. Ha ha

But the good news is I have started sewing! At lease, it's a good news for me. Due to moving and such, make it impossible for me to get back on track sooner than I supposed to. Another sigh.

I am now sewing a bulk order. Just to start off. And hopefully I'll get back the rhythm soon and finish every pending orders.

Happy sewing to all!

In Changlun, Kedah, with love


It has been awhile. I have safely moved to Changlun, Kedah. My husband's so called place of peacefulness. It is a nice place and environment. Not so big but a room for the kids to roam around. But, the best part is, now, I get to go to Haadyai or Dannok whenever I want...yay!

As for me. I am still struggling to get the sewing routine back on track. Still have some orders to attend to. And still have to start back my handmade business. Which had been neglected the past month. Sigh.

I am using Maxis broadband here. Seriously, Maxis is bloodsucker. Why can't they just have an unlimited broandband service just like what DiGi has offer?? I am not online as often as I use to be now, only if I need to check my mails or FB, once a while. To all my clients, just SMS me if you have any query, yes? Thank you and sorry for the inconvenience.

Now, where is my Nikon file when I need to upload some pics??? Arghhh...Will share with you guys some photos of our place, later.


Found the file, and these are pictures during the early days of moving...
