On the fast lane...

Stay tune for curtain updates...curtain fabrics are piling up..

A Gold Wedding

Its the school holiday again which is closely associated to engagement and weddings.I have my fair share of involvement to grace the occasion.

Its quite a spacious room to décor.It took me a good one month to get the wall paper done,sew the curtains and bedding set.I am happy that mother of the bride is delighted with her choice of color and  how I blend it with the dark brown tone of the pillows and top part of the curtains.
Lets hope the event goes smoothly this weekend,Insyaalah godwillingly..

In between meeting up with customers, stocking up sewing supplies,galavanting  shopping for fabrics,and planning work for my two seamstress ..I am also helping out dear daughter for her first booth sales..You can read all about it here.

Here are some preparations ;

S0me drawstring pouches in varying sizes.

And among other things ,some orders for toddlers were also completed;


And not forgetting a bridal room to décor this weekend....

I am also working on a new style cushion upon request from a senior customer.I shall call it SHELL SHAPED CUSHION..for obvious reason as it does  look like a shell.One is finally done.


I think I am ready to work on the actual fabric as I am quite happy as how this experiment turns out..Thanx for dropping by.More shelly and goldy updates coming out soon.

Fiber update..

Its cushion making week..just look at these..20 inch square,18 inch square,21 inch x 11 inch and round cushions...all kinds of dimension..

I like to use polyester filling for its lightness and fluffyness..I will really stuff the cushion to the maximum..but it will  get flatten over the years and customers will come back to top up with more fiber..

With or without?Which is better?

This week begins with covers for 8 dining chairs.Although the chair is best in its natural skin somehow dear owner insisted on a make over to blend with the new curtains so to speak.Your wish is my command,madam....and so voila....a little show off....

And now.....just done a few hours ago
Another view from upfront

This was the cover 4 years ago..2010.I like this pattern,short,clean cut and looks cool...

Will have to work on another 7 pieces.The nature of fabric (heavy velvet) and the hand pleated frills  ( as per request )is delaying the sewing process.Anyway its time well spent..The final product is quite satisfying...............
