Yesterday,I went to Nagoya Textile Shop to buy some cotton materials to make blouses. I do not know why suddenly comes the idea to make blouses...earlier, I have drawn various patterns of long blouses (knee length)that are suitable to be worn with long pants or long skirt.I make it baggy look or loose for comfort. I hope I have the clients to buy such blouses. I choose cotton as it is cooling for our hot humid climate. I actually got the idea when I saw some wonderful patterns in the COTTON FRIENDS magazine.In fact , I can also sew embroideries on the white cotton blouse. It is also suitable for those who want to go to Mecca to perform Umrah or Haj(pilgrimage for Muslims).I choose the plain as well as the small blue pink flowers like country look.I contacted my new friend to contact her tailor to sew it..surely I will use the lace too to add more Ummpphh!. Just to share ideas friend.Wish you happy sewing too.

As you know I am crazy over all things regarding sewing, embroidery and also crochet. I was really mad on seeing the Amure brand crochet hooks. The set is so beautiful that I contacted my FB friend from Kyoto, Japan to buy and post it to me. It is colourful with different sizes. I just cannot wait for the arrival, for a postman to come and bring the parcel..how nice to open something that we ordered from far.I have seen the price of the same item here is quite expensive.Dear my friend Sohana, sorry for troubling you to go and buy me..it is alright, I suppose you also like to do such work as I know you are also crafters and understand me too.Hopefully, I can get it soon..satisfaction of buying things to be given to you by you.

Tomorrow will be Friday.So I take a chance to go to Wakaf Che Yeh, Kota Bharu to attend a Tudung Class (how to make headcover for Muslim ladies). I got her advertisement in her FB and so I booked a place. Last two years, I have joined Zila's Class but I never sew even one Tudung so almost forgotten..so I need to go for another refresher course besides meeting new friends with the same interest, right? I am sure we will enjoy ourselves at Mary Kay Zurra shop with all the ladies laughter and finish three Tudung within one day.I have not yet buy the material for it. Tomorrow morning I will buy at Saleem Aziz shop. I would like to choose soft colour material.I always like to learn and would never stop learning, just to rejuvenate my spirit..who knows one day I can become Tudung exporter..no harm dreaming yeah..

I still remember when I made a smocking maternity dress for me years years ago.I think it was unique and something different from others. Besides, I also sew a smocking gown and I gave as a present to my neighbour. Now, I am thinking of doing it again where I can sew wonderful colourful embroidery on it..first we have to be very patient to sew gathers on the checked cotton cloth. After we have finished with the gathers,sew handmade embroidery on it.Nowadays, we rarely see small tots wearing smocking gown! Why? This maybe due to the expensive price or no more sewers who are willing to make such creative things and even some young mothers never heard of smocking gowns. I still remember my friend Najibah who loves to make smocking gown to her daughters as well as her grand-daughters.So cute! So come on mothers, you can do wonders by sewing smocking..open your old books and start doing it today..happy smocking not smoking!
