The pajamas

Zahra's notes:
This is my new pajamas.

My Ummi made it for me. I like it especially there's my favorite cartoon character on it- yup, Mr Doraemon. I know its noon but I wanna wear it anyway. Goodnite people. I'm going to have a sweetdream for my afternoon nap.. Ngee..

Ummi's notes:

I made a pajamas for who else - my DD Zahra.



Taken the pattern from Cotton Friend magazine Spring 2009 edition.


This is my first time sewing a convertible collar. Fuh, sungguh mencabar. Hard for me to figure out at first sebab tak ada contoh baju.
Luckily when I browsed one of my books, I stumbled upon a tutorial on how to sew one. But still, lots of jahit-tetas-jahit semula activity.


And I sew buttons on this baju. I guessed I need to spare my snap prong buttons for other sewing projects. Heheh..


Last but not least, I started cutting the fabric at 10am and finished everything at 2pm: spent about an hour just to sew the collar. For me, sewing is easy, its like matching the puzzles. The hard part is to cut the fabrics (yes, I need lots of gut overhere) and to make sure the measurement is appropriate.
Btw, the Doraemon fabric was bought at Kajang (a store near the McD) for rm4 per metre. The fabric is a bit hard, more suitable for making pillowcases I guess but no harm on making baju, right.

Happy weekends, people :-)
