Its a baby marathon week when........

 you have 2 sets of  baby cot to dress up!Oh yes !no lying..See for yourself..

Its a 2 layer frilled skirt and a quilted bed pad for the inner..Oh yes lots of strings to tie all round the cot.

This set is for Puan Hajjah Khairiyah for the aqiqah ceremony of her 5th grandchild..Its for a wooden cot.I had to work strictly on her measurements ,and right now its hanging loosely on my own baby cot at my work place.The size doesn't fit though.Lets hope she sents me a photo to share with you gals here..

And this is for Puan Hajjah Yasmeen who is waiting excitedly for her first grandchild in January 2014..The set consists of : bumper pad,comforter,2 layers frill bed skirt ,2 bolsters,1 pillow cover and one mattress cover..

This set looks equally great in a rattan baby carrier which i bought a couple of weeks ago :

Its the eleventh day,on the twelfth month of the year twenty thirteen...11.12.13..

So today will definitely need a short blabbering  for the auspicious date.Nothing sewing related.I am giving that a rest...hihi...Today i spent time at Jabatan Agama Islam opposite Masjid Wilayah to endorse a copy of my marriage certificate .This is a requirement By the Embassy Of Saudi Arabia for application of visa to Mecca to enable me and dear hub to do our umrah next year.

Next we tried to do our innoculation for meningitis..Unfortunately the few clinics that we visited have ran out of the vaccine.So we might have to find another day for this jab...

Thats all i did today,haha..nothing fancy ,all the waiting and running around exhausted me at one was your 11.12.13 day?

Tutorial for a baby/toddler bolster..

I am happy to say that i have finally completed a tutorial for this little bolster to share with fellow friends.Special features are a piping and a zipper closure.

You will need these fabrics:

You can  start affixing the zip :                                                                 

Next,prepare the cording/piping .

      There is a nice video on how to sew with piping here

You can now attach borders on both sides.

You now need to prepare the small cirle fabrics to attach on both end sides of the boster..In my case i have used the stripe blue fabric.

The fabric circle measures 4.5 inch diameter.You need to draw an inner circle of 2.5 inch diameter.Then attach
 the border at this marked  line,like the pic below..

Voila! have successfully completed the baby bolster.. try this again and again till perfection..all the best..!!!

Its a GOLD week...

This order comes from a lady who is marrying off her daughter in early december..The color scheme is gold.My whole week has been taken up working on this gold lace and satin.The bed skirt is finally done and ready..

This set consist of a bed skirt in king size,4 pillow covers,one bed runner and 3 scatter cusions....Amount of materials utilized is 20 meters..

And coincidently,another customer unrelated to the above also ordered a light gold curtain material for her table top.The ready table cover measures 7 ft x 3.5 ft.The top is quilted ,with box pleat frills and the ready set weights as heavy as a queen comforter..Phew.....

Any idea how to fold this heavyweight like a tonne table cover without leaving creases on the fold...???

Have a well rested weekend friends and thanx for dropping by...
