New prints in the house :)

Hello gorgeous :)

Remeber about free printables that I used to post? Refer here for the posting. I love the first print after seeing the world map in Elle Apparel. But since I don't have any world map, the downloaded picture seem quite good.

To print the pictures, I bought Wedoo promotion at Groupon here. It's only RM28 for 6 prints. Add on another RM10 for delivery (but you can choose to self pickup for free). The promotion was for glossy, laminated, acid free and water resistant 12R posters. So cool!

ps: Original price is RM127 :)

So I print the said pictures and here are the result. Other four are my personal photos. Can't wait to buy frames and hang it around the house :)

 I really satisfied with the quality of the printings. Can't wait for another promotion!

I love sewing: Sewing project, Baju Kurung

My baju kurung not done yet. But here are some pictures from my instagram :)

We were discussing on how to measure our body for baju kurung
Sewing session
Successfully put the top together
Finishing for hands
Finishing for neck - these take ages to complete :(

I just finished the finishing for neck. It's a hand sew with a technique called jahit karipap. I shall post a tutorial later on how to do this technique :)

For top of baju kurung, it's only three works to do before it's done and tomorrow we will sew the lower part of the dress.
Can't wait till it finish!
