OK. I am all excited. I never know that I will sew a tudung. Why I say so is because I am a big fan of tudung bawal. To be precise black tudung bawal. Don't be fool if you happen to see me with the same color of tudung, telling the truth I have 4 black tudung bawals - to show how much I am in love with such tudung. Hahaha.. Just very recent, I learnt to wear shawl, as I noticed its an easy type of hijab and it looks good on me. But restricted wearing only at a special event like raya. The black tudung bawal still my number one tudung.
A friend of mine asked me to alter her baju kurungs. She made a special kind of window for breast-feeding purposes and the tailor that sewn the baju got confused on how the window supposed to be function. I managed to alter the bajus and to cut a long story short, there is a lot of remaining fabrics (jersey knit cotton) that use for alteration and she asked me whether I can make tudung Syria out of the balance. I was kinda shock. Tudung Syria? Later last weekend we went to Bangi and for the first time ever I bought tudung Syria for me as I want it to be referral for making one (three I suppose- based on the fabrics balance).
And since I have some extra fabrics from the previous rapper hat, I made a prototype by tracing the tudung on the fabrics. And what do you know, its jadi! And I am excited!! Yeay.
So will I be transformed from someone who loves tudung bawal to tudung Syria. Erm, we'll see about it. Btw, do I look funny in such tudung? Heheheh...
Maybe after this I can try to make Tudung Ekin.. hehehe..
