Sew Along : Cosmo Bag

one of my sewing group is now organizing a sew along project for cosmo bag, designed by amy butler. Ruzila Kasim started it and phew! rupanya ada ramai yang berminat nak jahit bag ni. as for myself, my story with this bag is ermm quite upsetting. 

i bought this book soon after i read about it at kak Rozi's blog. but then, i had problem understanding the steps as there are not many pictures in it and perlu berangan di situ untuk faham all the steps. i even went to a class, but my two hour session was spent only for cutting the fabrics, and i was so lazy to go back there for another two hour session of ironing. so, i kept the book and didn't go back again.

you can google 'amy butler cosmo bag' to see photos of cosmo bags. 
but here's one that i like, from Made by Rozi Rahman

so lovelies, i've cut all the fabrics i need for the bag.
and i'll start sewing tonight, with hope that i can finish it within few hours. 
and bring it back to kampung tomorrow.

Manizer Bazaar Attack

we (Sewfabby & Made by Rozi Rahman) had our first bazaar last 14 & 15th, as we're still new in this bazaar thingy we decided to try a few places to check out the crowd and to find our niche.

 my DIY chalk board, we made this few days before the market, and i patched the board with fabric scraps. good way to use every single inch of my fabrics.

 our booth, located near to the stage. they had few artist (indi) performing on that day, young singers & rappers. didn't quite like it, i'm getting old.... 

during previous market, i tagged along with my friends from gmj club.
for 2012, i decided to get myself a partner, Rozi from Made by Rozi Rahman.
so lovelies, you will be seing us together at moreeee bazaar after this :)

and most importantly, a big fat hug for our readers who stopped by our booth. it meant a lot to me, knowing that people do read my blog, and still reading my dusty personal blog.
thanks a lot lovelies..!!!

early 2012: my knitting journey

as at january 2012, my knitting skill is 0.5%
or maybe less than that?
i only know how to cast on, and knit stitch

kak Rozi taught me the knit stitch and i learned to cast-on from youtube
so, for now i'm still practicing on how to control my fingers while knitting, 
figuring out which way is the most comfortable one
and my stitches are still here and there, some tight, some loose, some are straight, some gone. 

that's for now, january 9 2012.

by the way, cantik kan my knitting needles? 
bought them from kak Rozi when she got a few sets for sale last year
love the colorful needles, each color represent the needle size, so it's easy to remember
