I’ve finished baju raya for the kids. I’m still old fashion when it comes to raya. I prefer the traditional baju kurung to the modern one. I just spiced it up with the fun fabric. This year, I’m using Sanctuary by Patty Young for Robert Kauffman. I used Glass Tiles in Seafoam for Arwen’s baju kurung and finished off the collar with sembat mata lalat. I think it’s somewhat (or actually is) like a bullion knot. That’s the only finishing that I know how to do and even that I learnt if off the internet. I used some scrap from my baju kurung for the covered button. Isn’t it cute?
For Danial and Azrai, I used Zen Garden in Grey. I’ve done the tops. Azrai bought himself a matching grey pants to match so I don’t have to make a pair of pants for him but Danial insisted on having the whole baju malayu in matching fabric. It’ll be nice if I know how to sembat tulang belut for the baju melayu. I need to cut for Danial’s pants now and for the last week to go before Eid, I might just be able to squeeze in and sew a matching tudung for myself and a shirt for Azrai since he didn’t buy any clothes for raya.
In case this is my last posting before Eid, here’s wishing everybody
“Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri”
“Maaf Zahir dan Batin”
