Boys and Pants

Here are my boys.
The boys are wearing the pants I made for them.

When you have boys (THREE to be exact), there are not many types of clothing you can sew for them. It is either a top or a pant as they wear tops (shirt or a t-shirt) and pants all day, every day. At this moment, I'm kinda obsessed in making pants for them (since I have not learned nor tried making shirts for boys yet hehehe). I made three 3/4 pants out of 1 meter of grey linen fabric. How great is that? Sangat2 berbaloi!

Akif in his Big Butt Baby Pants. Just a plain pant with a contrast band at the cuffs. Love the owls print :). Bought the pants pattern at It was love at first sight when I first saw the pants she made. Super cute!

Cheeky Hafiy posing for his Mami. Hafiy's is just a simple straight forward pant.Also with owls print at the cuffs. Made it wide-leg so he will be comfortable running around, jumping up and down in it ;).

And for Hakimi, I added cargo/ bellow pockets in front for him to put his knick-knacks in. Used the fish print fabric I bought from MyBotanG for the flap & snap buttons for closure, so that whatever Kimi put inside his pockets will not fall out.

These pants are now in the laundry basket. Can't wait to wash them & put them on the kids again and again and again, LOL!

Love note : Have I told you that I love the linen fabric so much? Well, I loveee the linen fabric so much! And planning to get more yippeeee...

Happy Birthday Ma!

It's my beloved Ma's birthday today. Made a huggy ruffle pillow for her. When I saw the Ginger Tiles print from Sandi Henderson at Lovemelots, I see my mother's name printed all over it heheheh ;P. Used the Ginger Tiles for the front side and Amy Butler's Memento in Burgundy for the ruffles & for the back side of the pillow.

Ties for closure

I was inspired by the way Rozi personalises pillows for her customer (you can read about it here), so I did the same with this pillow. But since I don't  have an embroidery machine, I just used the alphabet stitches available on my machine. It may not be as pretty as if it was embroidered but I love it :D.

As for the pillow case, I fell in love with the one made by However, Idid not use the measurement given as this pillow is a little smaller than the normal sleeping pillow. I made this 20" x 16". Oh..and I also skipped the quilting part (as I have yet to master that ;).

And...I also made a matching birthday card for her too. Can't wait to give Ma her present. Hope she's going to love it ;).

Dearest Ma,
Happy birthday!
Kami doakan Ma  diberikan kesihatan yang baik, dipanjangkan umur, dimurahkan rezeki dan
sentiasa didalam rahmat& keberkatan Allah didunia & akhirat.
We love you Ma!

Update : This pillow is entering the Blogger's  Pillow Party for January 2011 hosted by Stitched in Color.

For Mi Amour

He turned 34 on Monday. Have yet to celebrate cause we are all a little under the weather at the moment. The man himself have been whispering since yesterday as he had temporarily lost his voice. And of  this morning, I have finally regained my sense of smell & taste..Alhamdulillah ( had a bad blocked nose ;P).

Back to the titled story, I made me man a wallet. He is very picky when it comes to wallets. He does not wear the normal men wallets we normally see in the market. He would always want to find something different. If he couldn't, he would rather go without one. Yup! And he has been walletless for months now. The last one he own was stolen.

I didn't know what to get him for his birthday. And since I have not sewn anything for him yet, I thought I'd make him a wallet. This was made using a denim fabric bought from Daiso. The design is similar to his last one. Can fit his phone inside too. Well, the wallet is actually more for him to put his business cards, his driving license and his MyKad. Money? Was never in the wallet.

Personalised the wallet with scraps I bought from MyBotanG. The 3 fishes represent our 3 boys while the big fish represents me-lah hahaha. It has 3 slip pockets - one at the front &one at the back for his business cards while another one is inside for his IDcards.  Added a swivel hook so mr.Hubby can hooked on his thumbdrives.

The best part about making this wallet was, it was done in a day, 2 days earlier than his birthday. I couldn't wait 2 days so...gave him the next morning. And he used it right away :).

To my dear hubby,
Happy birthday!We love you very..very .much!
