Reversible Aprons

I made these aprons today for a friend. I made them before but I didn’t post them here because the pictures weren’t nice. So, instead of laying the apron flat, I had no choice but to model them. Please ignore the tummy bump and the unflattering figure. These are taken by my 5 year old son. Times like this I wish I have a mannequin.

Baby Grand Piano Cover

My friend, Alice and Faudzi has this gorgeous ferrari red grand baby piano. A few weeks after it came home with them, Alice asked me to make a cover for it. Part of it because they were leaving for a two weeks vacation to Prague and don't want it to gather dust. Another reason is to keep Lizzie, their cat from sratching the luscious paint. I got it done but only after they got back from their holiday. Better late than never? BlogBooster-The most productive way for mobile blogging.

Arwen’s Gypsy Skirt

What started out as clearing my sewing room, turned out to be making more mess when I made this Gypsy Skirt for Arwen. I hardly have half a yard each of these cupcakes fabric and wanted to clear my scraps. Arwen was happy twirling in the skirt as soon as I finished it but she has her own idea of wearing the skirt; topless. She refused to wear a shirt over it and look at her face when I insisted, so I can take her pictures. She wasn’t happy that I only took the bottom half of her with the skirt so reluctantly, she cooperated. After the photoshoot, she took off the shirt again and went about happily, topless. Well, at least, she likes the skirt

Ava Bags - All Five of Them

 Made these Ava Bags for Siti Hajjar. She gave me two weeks’ lead time. I lost one week due to the viral and bacterial fever. I spent the whole of this week on these beauties. Taking it slow and steady as part of my recovery process. I cut and prepare no 1,2 and 3 on Tuesday. Made the bodies on Wednesday, Prepared and attached the handles on Thursday. Cut and prepare no 4 and 5 on the same day (Thursday). Didn’t touch them at all on Friday as I had to go to Toyota to take back my care after the windscreen replacement and sent the kids to my mom’s for the night and went to the insurance company to submit my claim. Went for a movie with hubby dearie to celebrate our night’s away from the kids. I finished it early this morning with Azrai’s help and sent it to Hartamas after our brunch. 

Thank you Hajjar for your business. It was really therapeutic for me...
