Berapa agaknya usia mesin jahit SINGER ni? 30 tahun ? 40 tahun ?
Masa beli tahun 1992 penjual tu kata mesin second hand ni memang dah lama dia simpan.
Bila beli mesin jahit portable, dah jarang guna. Lama lama mesin pun merajuk, jahitan pun tak cantik.
Maka disimpan dalam bilik setor sehingga 2 hari lepas. Cadangnya nak servis mungkin letak motor.
Barang yang berjasa jangan dijual nanti menyesal.

When my stepmother renovates her house she does not have storage space for the bagful of scraps she has been keeping for years. After one phone call I rushed over to her house in Subang Jaya to collect the above. What lovely materials I was given. High quality cotton, lace material from Korea which I want to make tablecloth. Samples of curtain material from Korea which will soon become pencil cases, perfect timing to receive these as I am committed to sew pencil cases for a charity project.
My favorite..the one with fat cats and thin cats..

I made this HOUSE POUCH as a gift to a friend in Sabah. Actually I am in group called GMJ short for GENG MESIN JAHIT..(sewing machine gang) and we exchange pouches as our first activity. I want to sew something different from the ordinary so this idea came to my mind.
I am going to sew one for my kitchen so that I have somewhere to put all the loose coins sometime I find lying around on the floor...:)

|At Selama bus station. This bus took us to Taiping..an old bus that has seen better days.|
|While waiting for departure time, I snapped this picture.|
|Earlier, we traveled on this bus from Kulim to Selama.|
|My daughter, looking out the window.|
|There's beauty in nature....|
|At 'pasar pagi' Kamunting..the building at the back is a public toilet,|
among others , it says the toilet is 'wangi' :)
|From Kamunting, Taiping to Kuala Lumpur we traveled by Transnational bus.|
|The bus departed at 11am so we had ample time to go to|
'pasar pagi' Quite interesting...above you see electrical appliances..
|....rice cookers, fans, plates...etc|

Bila menjahit tudung maka banyaklah kain perca jenis yang stretchable ni.
Antara benda yang boleh dijahit menggunakan perca lycra ialah sarung kaki.
Sekarang kita boleh jimat duit tak payah beli lagi.
Boleh jahit gabungan yang lebih 'fancy' dengan corak bunga2 atau abstract.
Nak match dengan warna baju pun boleh :)

'Mug Rug'..kain perca yang diberi Rosni of NYKOLETT,
dicantum dan dialas dengan kain lebihan langsir 2 tahun lepas.
Aidilfitri nanti boleh alas balang2 biskut raya..tak semestinya alas mug
sebab saiznya lebihkurang 12" X 12"
Boleh juga guna untuk hidang secawan teh dan sepiring biskut.

Well, this is 'KERI' my simplified version of the casserole carrier/cozy
or whatever name you call it.
Loosen the cord..place any container/canister..
pull the cords...and tie the ends
Ready to go...in style.
This is my first attempt, still need improvement..and I know where.
Friends' suggestion are most welcome though :)
I have just completed sewing 'KERI' and I'm very excited to show it off.
But for some reasons 'KERI' cannot be photographed yet.
'She' is a bit camera shy.
Nonetheless for now I'll give a brief description of 'KERI'
It is a carrier for your casserole dish or your 'biskut raya' container
or a 'loyang' of 'kuih talam' the list can go on....
It is meant to carry in style dishes to the surau, mosques, buka puasa invitations,
to your mum's or mum-in-law's house
again the list can go on....
and don't forget Hari Raya open house invitations :)
The idea is not original but I improvised here and there.
Make it simpler so I can sell it cheaper!
Please be patient for a glimpse of 'KERI'

Dah lebih separuh abad tahun ni..no worries just grow old gracefully.
Honestly I don't worry :)
Pusing saja angka itu.
50 -> 05
51 -> 15
52 -> 25
53 -> 35
54 -> 45
56 -> 65
57 -> 75
58 -> 85
59 -> 95
Dari 52 ke 54 boleh pusing2 jadi 'muda' tapi bila sampai 55 dah stagnant, lepas tu kalau pusing pun jadi angka 'tua'
No worries..jaga kesihatan apa yang dimakan dan tentunya tingkatkan amalan.
Dan terus menjahit....creativity makes us happy :)

This is my first attempt at making quilted wristlet..I found a good tutorial here.
So you see, instead of 12 squares mine has 9 on each side.
The handle is salvaged from a paper bag.
There is one pocket inside..I forgot to sew along the zipper to keep the lining neat and in place..
as it is the material tend to get stuck a little when I open or close the zipper.
I will deal with that later creatively.
The other side...looks like I'll be making more quilted wristlets soon.
