Mari kita berpesta

Jom kita berpesta..
Pesta apa?
Pesta buku lah.. apa lagi.
Semenjak saya selalu membeli buku online ni, saya dah tak bersemanagat sangat nak ke pesta buku sebenarnya.
Tapi ada budak sorang tuh... sejak dari keluaran AnaMuslim bulan 3 lagi dah excited nak pergi. Dah lama buat list buku2 yang nak dibeli, peminat nombor satu novel AnaMuslim. The first gerai yang kami pergi adalah AnaMuslim... after that umi n ayah senang hati nak cari buku. Yang penting bagi satu port untuk budak kecik tuh baca buku hahaha.

Senyum lebar, bukan ajer dapat buku, dapat beg sekali yerrr
Dan ini plak buku2 quilting yang saya dapat dari booth Eddiplex
Semuanya RM10.00 sebuah.. Buku Diet & Nutrition tuh dari gerai Karangkraf, also RM10


Kekadang terfikir apa pentingnya beli buku, sedangkan di internet dah banyak melambak pelbagai tutorial kan, tapi bila belek2 buku ni, kekadang ada teknik yang tak terdapat in detail di internet, plus boleh jadi quick reference bila takde idea nak buat pattern camna.

Oklah.. happy Monday and Happy Labour day to all workers around the world.

EZ wetbag with tutorial

Happy Monday friends..
I felt like sleeping, yup not enough rest on weekend.. maybe.. or too much rest ahahaha

It was really a busy dizzy weekend actually, we went down from Genting Awana on Saturday afternoon, after lunch. Then we took an hour or two rest at home before sending Izzah to her swimming class. After her class, all of us (me, hubby and Izah) dumping ourself in the pool for more than an hour.. fuh... best but penat.

On Sunday.. its laundry day hahaha... plus all the deferred housework to do huh.. tapi sempat jugak visiting our friends at GoGoBazaar at Sogo.. akhirnya jumpa jugak dengan Kak Jamilah SCLover... kalaulah tidak kerana masa yang mencemburui kami (cheeewahh ayat pidato plak kan), tentu dah borak panjang. Tapi kami rushing ke swimming class Izzah plak, once again huh. Harap2nya cepatlah Izzah pandai berenang, no more commitment nak hantar dia ke kelas renang.

Bila dah tinggalkan rumah lama, mood menjahit pun sedikit down. Kena warming up niii.. ada 2 more baby quilt to finish by end of this month... plus a bag, plus plus plus... never be a minus kan

So sempatlah saya jahit 1 tudung untuk berenang, actually I bought a brand new swimming suit with head cover, but the old one dont have headcover, then I made one copying Izzah's swimming cap, nasib menjadi hehehe

And here is another simple bag.. a wet bag. Sangat berguna untuk bawa cloth pads..

This small size can fit in 2 cloth pantyliners or 1 cloth pad (depends on size) at a time
Its very easy to do.. semudah ABC hihihi

You need 2 pieces of waterproof fabric measuring 5.5 inch x 5 inch (or you can have you own measurement) - the waterproof fabric can be PUL, laminated or even oilcloth

Fold 1/2 inch and topstitch


Then stack it together, and sew

Turn the right side out

Topstitch the bag except the opening.

Then install a snap button, and its DONE

Very easy right...

The ideas of this bag is actually "stolen" from this simple bag made by my dearest Izzah for her Uno game.. This bag was not properly sewn, seh just sew what ever she like and it happen that this one was like a bag
.

She is now conquering my NV50, emmm kemana tumpahnya kuah kalau tak ke nasi kan...
She sew on her own with my scrap, opss not the cotton scraps, but scraps that I made from making baju kurung or curtain. She is actually exploring all deco stitches in my NV50 and she is now can operate the machine on her own, only once a awhile she did call me incase any troubleshoot....

I made another wetbag with different sizes.. but not yet installing the snap button.

Thanks for reading...
Byeee

I'm so sorry

Layan lagu Irfan Makki lagi...
tengah berkira2 nak beli Maher Zain yang baru ni hehee..

If my time would end today would I be ready to go?

And leave all the things I’ve worked so hard for
And all my friends and everyone I’ve known?
Never did I ever stop for a moment to think
Of what’s staring at me
I’ve been breaking all the mirrors of reality



(Chorus):
I’m so sorry, if only I had just one last chance
I’m so sorry, but now it’s too late to change the past, oh


I lived my life in the fast lane, I only lived for today
And never, never really thought about anyone else
It was all about me, myself and I
Never did I ever stop for a moment to think
Of what’s staring at me
I’ve been breaking all the mirrors of reality, oh



(Chorus)
And now, now that it’s over
I wonder if anyone will remember me
If I had the chance to turn back the hands of time
There are so many things that I would change
I’d live my life, every single breath… for You


(Piano Solo)


(Chorus)


(Outro):


I’m so sorry, so sorry
Please forgive me

~Irfan Makki~

Happy Tuesday..

Another addition to my bookshelf... 

Dah lama berangan nak memiliki buku ini, akhirnya sampai jua, saya beli dari BookDepository at USD24. Buku ni memang complete guide to bag making plus lots of bag patterns too. I love it very much.

And these are..... addition to my stash.. cant help staring at this beautiful fabric...
All Cath Kidston waterproof fabrics.. I am a bit "tamak" for buying more than 7 yards of these beauty hahaha.. yup.. memang tamak. Padahal bukanlah hardcore bag maker pun..

 

Thank you sooooo much to my blogger friend who's helping me in buying this directly from here. Opss saya tahu.. kalau masuk link tuh, memang rasa nak pengsan kejap, macam nak beli semua benda kan kan... jangan salahkan saya kerana bagi link tuh ok.

And I am thinking of a new apron for me and Izzah with this fabric... cantik berserilah dapur ku dengan apron baru nanti (baru stage berangan yerrr hahaha...)

I have finished few quilt project recently and the most worrying thing to me is... .the scraps!!!!. And its time for me to have a "Just Sew it without rule" project...

And practising my FMQ toooo... not really a neat work..

I should say, its ok for a beginner right.. I love the LOVE shape... I figured it out just before sleeping hahaha.. Nasib tak mimpi FMQ with that shape kan...

Bamboo Cloth Pantyliner Restock.... with LE tooo

Kepada peminat cupcakes... its now on your pantyliner hahaha...
This is a limited Edition Bamboo cloth pantyliner - Cupcakes - Japanese and US cotton

Selling at RM12.50 per pieces
Only available as per in the picture

Dan kat bawah ni normal bamboo cloth pantyliner... restocking about 20 pieces (tapi tak semua dalam gambar) with two choices of colour, Price at RM8.50 per piece


The flannel pantyliner is still in stock, you can check it out here

Ada banyak juga pertanyaan yang mana satu lebih bagus, yang guna flannel atau pun yang guna bamboo..
Personally I would say Bamboo adalah lebih baik, ianya really good to your skin, some more its an antibacterial fabric. Lagi satu, saya menggunakan cotton untuk bahagian "wing"nya. Compare to flannel, cotton lebih tahan lama.
Manakal flannel akan berbulu dan menipis through time. Tapi so far saya dah pakai almost 2 years, my first flannel pantyliner still ok lagi. And offcourse, flannel is much more cheaper than bamboo.

Pilihan di tangan anda, kalau setakat nak cuba2 dulu, trylah flannel, takut nanti hangat2 taik ayam jer, sekerat jalan jer pakai, so tak lah rugi sangat sebab murah jer kan ahaks...

Ops.... tak lupa, anda masih berpeluang untuk dapat 2 pantyliners for free yerr. Do join the GA from Notamanjaku here

From Pads to A Cup

Hi Ladies...
This posting dedicated to ladies only, no guys ok hahaha

I have been thinking about upgrading or migrating or what ever it calls.... to menstrual cups. I have browsing all over the net on anything related to menstrual cup.

http://www.mooncup.co.uk/about-the-mooncup.html
This Mooncup a bit popular, but I am still wondering where to buy in Malaysia, anyone has an idea, please share. Or is it the same as Lady's cup here at Tinytapir?

http://www.tinytapir.com/item/Lady-Cup/739/c79
Tinytapir also have this Meluna cup.. which seems cheaper than Lady's Cup and colourful too

http://www.tinytapir.com/item/Meluna-Menstrual-Cup/1474/c79
Another one... that I found on the net...
http://www.divacup.com/
You may also get more infoon menstrual cup at Anic's blog here

All the positive reviews that I read making me keen to try, its a bit pricey but since it is reusable, it worth to try.

And if any of you who are now using it, appreciate your comment on this...

Update on 14/04/2012 - I am sharing Anic's review on this cup

Hi Mila,

Menstrual cup is super useful.. :) I am a big fan of menstrual cup.. :)  I have Ladycup and Meluna cup. No need to thoroughly wash during the period, just empty, rinse it with water and insert it back. But boil them before/after each period or use Alcohol wipe. The Meluna cup is stiffer than the Ladycup, but when it is inside, I can't tell the difference. I don't feel anything when the cup is inside.. just like without period..

If you are not in the rush, you can get the ladycup from ebay, it is about USD35 with shipping included:  http://stores.ebay.com/LadyCup-menstrual-cups

I went to check and she didn't have auction like before. When she does the price is like USD20 plus..

I use cup during the heavy days... save me washing too many cloth pads. My ideal situation would be I empty the cup before I leave for work and then only empty the cup when I get home at night. This means that I need a cup which is big enough for that. Ladycup L size almost achieve this but the Meluna L size could take a bigger volume than the Ladycup L size, the reason why I bought Meluna L size ( but I end up preferring Ladycup as it is softer and easier for me to insert).
Here is a link to a size chart: http://sizecharts.livejournal.com/   

I could survive with Ladycup large from morning till evening without having to empty during the day.. :)

Thanks Anic for the wonderful review...

Update on 18/4/2012 :
It is save to use even when sleeping or laying down.. I imagined that it would spill over hahaha

Waiting for the call

Miles away, oceans apart
Never in my sight but always in my heart
The love is always there it will never die
Only growing stronger tears rose down my eye


I am thinking all the time
When the day will come
Standing there before you
Accept this Hajj of mine


Standing in ihram, making my tawaf
Drinking blessings from your well
The saie of safa and marwa
rekindles my imaan


O Allah! I am waiting for the call
Praying for the day when I can be near the Kabah wall
O Allah! I am waiting for the call
Praying for the day when I can be near the Kabah wall


I feel alive and I feel strong
I can feel Islam running through my veins
To see my muslim brothers, their purpose all the same
Greeting one another, exalting one True Name
I truly hope one day everyone will get a chance
To be bless with the greatest honour being Hajj in noble house


Standing in ihram making my tawaf, making my tawaf
Drinking blessings from your well
The saie of safa and marwa
rekindles my imaan


O Allah! I am waiting for the call
Praying for the day when I can be near the Kabah wall
O Allah! I am waiting for the call
Praying for the day when I can be near the Kabah wall

"لَبَّيْكَ اللّهُمَّ لَبَّيْكَ، لَبَّيْكَ لاَشَرِيْكَ لَكَ لَبَّيْكَ، إِنَّ الْحَمْدَ وَالنِّعْمَةَ لَكَ وَالْمُلْكَ، لاَشَرَيْكَ لَكَ."

The quilted pillowcase.. first time buat pebbles tuh... wokey jugak. bolat2.. kat tengahnya kembong gitu hahhaa
This set comprises of 2 bolster, 1 small pillow and 1 bigger pillow
Hopefully the owner will like it.

And this..... another block in making..

Personalised Pillowcase.... QISH

Buat baby Qish yang comel... tengok kat FB jer.. tak pernah berjumpa secara live.
Harap baby Qish tidur lena dengan bantal ni.

Actual size 17.5 x 17.5 inch, tapi bantal yang saya guna ni kecik skit. so nampak kurang cantik skit. Nak confirm dulu dengan mama Qish, nak bantal sekali atau pun tidak, sebab bantal macam ni banyak jer jual kat hypermarket kan, buat rugi kos pos jer kalau saya nak buatkan...
A Happy owl


QISH in LOVE..

Harap Mama Qish sukalah dengan bantal ni...
Thanks very much, kerana dah banyak kali tempah dengan saya...
