Now I Know How To Make Telekung

I've been wanting to learn on how to sew a proper telekung.. I sewn 2 for my daughters before, based on the one I already had but when it came to the face part it didn't turn out the way I wanted.. And my daughters also claim a bit uncomfortable to wear...

Alhamdulillah, last Saturday, I managed to learn it together with my other friends. So this is the result
The Face Part 
The 'kekek' part you can actually put it on or under 'awning'.. But I guess if you're putting some lace on it it look better if 'kekek' part under the 'awning'.

Inner Part
For this telekung, I also 'attached' the inner part so it's not that 'see thru'. Actually the material provided is not really 'enough' for the whole telekung, but enough for us to learn how to make our own telekung.. At first, I wanted to add a few inches below the telekung to make it longer and enough to cover what's need to cover (heheheh) but when my eldest daughter saw it, she quickly claimed ownership... Need to alter the face part to fit hers and put some simple embroidery as well... So next step, to find good material for my own telekung...hehehhe

Love & Regards

Sling Bag From Recycled Jeans

After few days or is it few weeks or months (?), since the last time Fasha request for a sling bag, finally I managed to make one for her.... Made from her ayah's old jeans, embroidered with Ana Muslim design, her name and some decorative stitchings, really made her smile ear to ear...

Front & Back
Actually the Ana Muslim part shud be in front instead of at the back. At first when I told her I'm going to make her zippered closure, she was fine with it.... Until much later, well last night actually (well after some times of postponing) she then later said she wanted it with flap instead, together with question and remarks "Mama, lambat lagi yea nak siapkan sling bag kakak? Berapa lama lagi mama? Besok? Minggu depan? bulan depan? ke 2 bulan lagi? Takpelah mama, kakak tahu mama sibuk, kakak paham, nanti bila mama dah x sibuk mama bolehla siapkan kakak punya pulak, ok..? " ... Errrkkkk... I'm stunned... So promised to myself, gonna finished it up by next day (which is today)... So last night prepared everything, got to realise I won't be able to put Ana Muslim in front, and it won't fit to put it on flap, and since it was already 'late' I was lazy to embroider another smaller one, so I decided just to go on with it... Woke up early this morning, finished it up, handed it to her...

Love & Regards
