Finally Kanga XT in the house :)

It's been like forever I don't blog about babywearing or even cloth diapering or even breastfeeding. hehehe
Well, to tell you the truth, I'm almost at the end of my babywearing, cloth diapering and breastfeeding journey.
Not that I'm at the end of it perse, it just that I had stopped looking around for infos or things.
(Save a lot on my pocket (but hmm.. spend a lot on other things pulokk!)

But today, I'm going to introduce you to the new addi(c)ttion to the family..
Kanga XT Unikko in Blue.

Owhh I love Marimekko motifs..they are lovely and feminine..

Anthropology Knockoff - Hanna dress

When I saw this dress on Pinterest, I knew I got to sew this pretty dress and I have a nice cotton knit jersey that suit for this project.

But I was disappointed when I clicked on the link, i was led to an online shop in the States..frustrating....
Well, hm.. why not I just give it a try...the dress looked simple and SEEMED easy to copycat.
The worst thing that could happen is, my RM20 per metre fabric might be ended up in the scrap bin..:p

This dress took almost a week to be completed, considering I only managed to steal 15-30minutes a day to sew.
Here's my version...I should add on ruffles to make it prettier, don't you think?

But my little lady is yet to fit in the dress nicely. May be in another 6 months.:)
Owh one more thing..the original version is named Hanna dress...my version is Raihannah dress.. :p (Raihannah is my little lady name :) )

L.o.l.l.i.p.o.p ruffled skirt

I named this skirt lollipop as the colours are so yummy..wanted to name it candy but may be on other skirt or dress perhaps..
That's the best thing when I'm able to sew something as I can give whatever cute name to it..hehehe bestkan?
This time another knit project that really challenged me.
The edge of the fabric itself made me went crazy..I was clueless on how to start.
Bergulung tu... said that may be due to high lycra content in fabric that cause the fabric to curl.

However, I am glad that I managed to pull through and kept on sewing..though a bit herot here and there.
Didn't expect it to be this hard.
But the outcome is..haizzzz.... cute kan?

I sew in a pocket..just to make this skirt look funky and add a knit bow in coordinating colour.

PINTEREST : My new addiction

If you never heard about PINTEREST, well you miss something good from the net.
Gosh..it is my new addiction and it makes my life easier!
Pinterest is actually a virtual bookmarking and social networking (just like facebook), similar to bookmarking in the internet explorer or firefox, but the best thing is all the bookmark pages are compiled in one web (i'm a IT noob, don't know the correct term to it).
But the word use in PINTEREST is PIN instead of bookmark..it is like you pin something on your BOARD.
You can retrieve back your bookmark pages in any computer unlike the typical bookmarking that bound in a specific dedicated computer.
Apart from this. you can share what you have found in the net with...almost everyone that share same passion or hobby..well..like me who just started in sewing..I managed to collect thousand of free sewing tutorials in the net!!


Pinterest (Pin-tũr-ĕst) is a vision board-styled social photo sharing website and app where users can create and manage theme-based image collections. The mission statement of Pinterest is to connect everyone in the world through shared tastes and the “things” they find interesting. Pinterest is managed by a team based out of Palo Alto, California. Noted entrepreneurs and investors include: Jack Abraham, Michael Birch, Scott Belsky, Shana Fisher, Ron Conway, Kevin Hartz, Jeremy Stoppelman, Hank Vigil, and Fritz Lanman.

To date, I had pinned 1585 pins in 30boards!! That's quite impressive for a person who just register...hehhehe
Let me show you what I have in my pinterest.
You will be amaze of what I've found.

You can log in using facebook ID.
Most of my PINS are on sewing and stuff for my kids.
Those that FOLLOWING me (no approval required..hahahah), can actually see what I've pinned.
It is like sharing what we have found.
As to date, I have 77FOLLOWERs (most of them from the States) and I'm FOLLOWING 118 people.

Pinterest makes it easy to retrieve free tutorial or just browsing looking at random photos.
I can also download PINTEREST apps in my iphone...definitely a nice pass time activity...hehehehe

Gosh...I can't believe that I'm yet to share my PINTEREST...
here's my link.. http://pinterest.com/annarozy/

Why People Are Obsessed
Pinterest combines two of the most compelling elements of social media: visual content and sharing who you are. Oh, and everything looks really pretty…

P.e.a.s.a.n.t Dress for Husna

It's December again, school holiday is here with of course many wedding invitations. :)
Last month when I attended a friend's wedding, I just realised that despite me getting OK in sewing, I never sew a nice wearable dress for Husna to wear on special occasion.
She only has 2 store bought dresses..Though not that she really care...hahahaha

So I pulled out my designer fabric stash and started to pair prints for a nice combo.
I got this habit of buying fabric from USA (etsy to be exact) based on what looks pretty..never crossed my mind to choose combos..*spank me..

I found this two prints which seemed OK..and asked around in my sewing group in fb.
But what the heck..just try and see..

This time I'm using a real pattern (beli punya)..Elizabeth Claire Peasant Dress from THE LIZARD KING

So here...tadaaaa..
Using Michael Miller Gypsy Bandanna and Sugar Pop

Husna looks cute in this dress :)

This dress will definitely be in my shop soon.. Stay Tune!
