I'm almost done! Hurry up!

I;ve been spending few days back try to complete my to-sew-list but end up adding more to-sew-item in that list and some item in the first batch has to be neglected due to it's priority. I believe it's a sign that my labor will begin soon hahah! It's the nesting urge that's what they call it. Let me share a bit what i've accomplished so far! Here's list  from previous entry:

  • Convert all 6 bumGenius to snap button - Done!
  • Jahit barut for baby - Almost there, kain dah potong into sizes tinggal jahit.
  • Potong kaki seluar of few pants that I bought at Ross Pjg sgt dho.- Done!
  • Jahit 2 baby pouch - Not yet. 
  • Jahit baju kurung raya for Mimin - Kain da beli tp blom potong. Sempat ker?
  • Make a receiving blanket for baby - Hah beli aje lah melor oi!
  • One blanket spare blanket. (Papa nk pilih kain kat Joann) - Tangguh dulu tak penting sgt.
  • DIY another 6 cloth diapers... (beli je kalo tak sempat haha!) - Dah selamat outsource kat GBW 10 cd!
 Converted to snap with Ooga Booga engraved cap.
    Additional to-sew-list: 


    Glider cushion makeover - Owh so inspired by this tutorial and lihatlah hasil cushion baru yang tak seberapa itu hahaha! First time on buat upholstery. Ni sume gara2 esok nk nursing sambil dok kat glider, insyaAllah!. Glider tu beli kat kids consignment store je.



    Diaper bag - Dok survey diaper bag, jatuh hati betul dengan beg kat Etsy store - Watermelon Wishes, tp upah jahit nyer aje $82, see how ppl value their creativity and workmanship. Tabik spring beb. Now i wonder those yg. amik upah jahit bag tapi charges nyer murah, pls my dear sewist friend, you're producing one of a kind item and bukan buat massive production. Pls. don't under value your skills, time, energy and have a very strict QC with ur handmade. So this is my as is yg tak berapa as is hahah! Boleh lah utk pakai sendiri.



    Lining for basket - Last month i bought 2 bakul kat thrift store, $1-$2 each. Thrift store ni kedai yg jual brg2 2nd hand yg ppl donate pastu hasil jualan disalurkan ke charity centre. So byk la brg2 dari baju, perabot, brg2 dapo, toys, electrical appliances n mcm2 lah. I found a fleece from Joann remnant section for $3.50 that just nice to go as lining for the basket. This project inspired from this tutorial at Sew! Mama! Sew! Boleh la isi cd, insert and baby stuff. Planned to get few more basket.

    So yg penting dan perlu segera is barut baby and to make few baby wipes from leftover flannel that i bought utk buat barut. Skang try to be more green haha! re-usable baby wipes, cloth diaper..yada..yada. The rest think can wait. Nanti dah siap will upload pic here.

    *Owh planning to add materials to make cloth diaper like PUL, Zorb, Cotton Velour, Organic Bambo stuff, cute cotton interlock print to my shop soon. Any takers? We'll see...

    You inspired me with that beautiful chair!...fiza pun dah lame plan nak tukar cover cushion baru (i dream my cushion made from patty young fabric. tapi mahal sangat..so mimpi ajelah.)

    ingatkan diaper bag melor nak isi diaper kotor, rupanya diaper bag yang leh letak macam-macam. very nice bag...ligning with stripe fabric lagi. comel!lupa nak tanya diaper bag ni waterproof tak? teruja tengok diaper bag emlor ni, tapi bila la fiza nak jahit diaper bag untuk isi diaper kotor untuk nursery ni.dah berangan dah nak buat diaper bag using cotton as outer layer dan sandwich with plain PUL.ok tak?

    about creativity and workmanship...kat malaysia ni bila kita upah mahal orang bising padahal nak buat hand made item bukannya senang, perlukan kesungguhan dan ketelitian. macam jahit cd juga, bukan senang nak jahit especially when handling with mfleece bamboo or velour that stretch a lot..nak jual mahal orang bising pula kena compare dengan china brand.

    Diaper beg ni tak waterproof. The one you're referring to is a wet bag. Byk melor tgk org buat luar cotton dlm lining ngn pul.
