Modern Kebaya

It’s been a long time since I last updated this blog, actually there are some I would like to share here. Okay, let me upload them one by one and I will start with a gown for my cousin’s wedding in which my husband and I were asked to escort the guests on that beautiful event. Fortunately I was given a 2 meter length flowery maroon fabric of chiffon instead of brocade, to tell you the truth I am not too confident of sewing brocade, so it was a bless.

But with this 165 cm height and excess baggage here and there the fabric would not be enough for me, so I added another soft maroon plain chiffon fabric for the upper part of the gown. I made a high-waisted line with high neckline gown. To make it look prettier I also added a belt of two scarfs (dark green and goldish) which I tied and formed like flowers. And here I was with the gown in my cousin’s wedding day: 


I don’t know why but lately I am in to crocheting again. I find this exercise very relaxing. And here my results: 

Hairbands for my beautiful nieces (Safa and Syta)

.....and of course scarfs for my boys

Coffee Latte

I love a cup of coffee latte although too much of it can make my stomach upset sometimes. And one day I found these fabrics in mayestik that reminded me so much of my favorite drink...
A coffee latte color runner for your coffee table, what a perfect match...

it can warm your rainy afternoon...

and a tissue box cover decorated with coffee color ribbon... so sweet..

Another Batiks

I still have some scrap of batik left and this time I tried to make a small tote bag out of it for my mukena

and another tissue box cover for my husband to put in our sedan.

They both look classical and beautiful.

Floral and stripped cotton fabrics

I fell in love helplessly from the first time I saw these beautiful floral, stripped and polkadot cotton fabrics.

My head was suddenly filled with ideas of what I was going to do with them.... and after spending some times with my sewing machine...

Voila... floral and stripped cushions...

reversible runner...



with its tasle...

and reversible tissue box cover....


Which one do you like?
