Birthday present for my hubby


Berpeluh nak siapkan this shirt for my hubby. It’s his birthday today and I didn’t win a Blackberry Torch through Nuffnang contest so, I’ve got to stitch up something for him. It’s a simple man’s shirt pattern from Simplicity which I’ve downloaded quite some time ago. I stick together the pattern pieces yesterday and only started to cut the fabric after dinner last night. Early this morning, I continue with joining the sleeve, hemming and making the button holes. Oh, and by the way, this shirt is throughly made with my new machine. It was quite pleasant working on this machine and simply love the one step button hole maker. I use to be quite intimidated to do button holes and would rather substitute snaps to making button holes but with the new machine, it was a breeze. Looks like I’ll be starting another collection for buttons soon.

Anyway, this is to my dearest husband, my best friend, my other half, my better half, my pillar of strength, the father to my children. Thank you for your endless support and love. Thank you for closing your eyes when the house is in a mess as I sew away. May Allah bless you with rezeki, health and happiness always. 

I almost forgot, I need to sew the buttons on to the shirt before he gets home. We’ll be taking the birthday guy for a treat tonight and hopefully he gets to wear this.

P/s: I forgot to mention, the shirt is made with Joel Dewberry’s Ironworks in Forest. The fabric is still available at Lil Arwen
