We had a great time yesterday, attending a sewing class conducted by Zila Kasim . Ten of us participated and of course it is fun! a good combination of those who knew how to sew and the very beginners who used to scream at every phase..Jaja said 'ohh yeah!'
Piza with her cool way but never finished her bag!..suzanne was so allergic to sewing until she got headache and vomit on finishing her patchwork and quilt. Anna also got tense up.Ju was so patient to finish hers..Zainedah was frustrated that her sewing machine was down..she called the mechanic to repair.Anyhow we got a lot of knowledge and tips while finishing our projects..thank you Zila. I also bought Rotary Cutter, omnigrid ruler and cutting mat.Also not forgetting to buy Amy Buttler's designer cotton from her.I was so happy.Today, Piza, Che Nah and friends straight away went to buy sewing machine! Love at first sight. I kept on whispering to myself to be patient not to buy another new machine...

Tomorrow 24th of January,we (the sewing club)will enjoy ourselves at Suzanne's grandfather's house, for 'sewing spree'. We invited Zila from Kuala Lumpur to be our sewing coach. As planned we will start our projects at 9.00 am.We have our own choice to sew whether to make bags,pencil case,quilting and patchwork, and also sewing 'tudung' or headcover. Can you just imagine how it is going to be if 10 ladies meet with all the grandmother's stories or may be sharing our experience or exchanging craft ideas. I think it will be fun! Actually not all of them can sew but thanks they have the courage to learn something new. Those who never touch the sewing machine will definitely excited or shout at every step they proceed! Thank you friend for participating.

Last month, as I have mentioned earlier that I attended Zila Kassim's BAG class.I have just finished sewing a handbag made from Japanese cotton material. For the inner part of the bag, I put iron-on interfacing to make the bag firm or stay in shape ( I am not sure of the exact word). Last week, I went to buy the interfacing at a shop selling sewing accessories..I bought 1 metre for the hard one and another 1 metre of the softer one.I started to cut the material and iron-on the interfacing.I make four patterns. I mixed and matched the plain material with flowery or polkadot. Actually, it is not easy to choose to make it look beautiful or outstanding.I just cut and cut but I do not know when to start sewing as I am so busy with other work.I had ordered Olfa Rotary Cutter, the ruler and the grid cutting mat.I asked her to bring during class at the end of the month.I just can't wait to use it as it is easier than using the scissors.
