DIY Pin Cushion

Every tailor needs a pin cushion. Ehem. And I'm about to become one so of course I need one. 

I went to Typo the other day and saw a sewing kit in a mason jar with a pin cushion on it. So cute I might end up buying it. But anyway, I already had whatever basic sewing needs why do I need another one?

So I googled for DIY pin cushion and found those cute ones.

And mine not even close. Hahahaha

So not cute but as long as it serve its purpose, whatever. Hahahaha

And those lovely pins are from Typo.

The making of my own baju kurung

As a typical Malay girl, I wear baju kurung as office attire on my lazy days. Seems like everyday is a lazy day, its like a uniform for my daily attire.

Baju kurung is a one suit, a knee length dress paired up with a maxi skirt. Its a traditional attire for Malays.

Since the wages for tailormade baju kurung keep on increasing, I decided to take a basic sewing class to make a princess cut dress. Oh well, I dont fancy wearing dresses so I went a little crazy on my last trip to Jakarta, I bought more than enough fabric for baju kurung.

So for a beginner like me, I'm no expert in drawing a template for the baju kurung. I found myself too lazy to get the measurement correct and to draw, even though I sometimes love to draw. Funny huh?

So I let myself cheap, I bought a modern baju kurung template from the teacher of the sewing class.

I just cut a piece of fabric as my first handmade baju kurung.

Wish me luck!
