my new Pump Bag

Sekarang ni so addicted to crafting la. Hari2 mesti nak buat another project. Asal Adam lelap je…Mommy terus buat sepah dgn fabrics…haha..( I know hubby is itching to clean up my sewing room! But, it’s so much easier to work while everything is scattered everywhere..right??) I still have a long list of projects I plan to do… ;) so now dah takleh tido awal la…I’m perfecting the art of slipping out of bed while that little boss is sleeping…

This is the latest one. I finally made a bag for myself. Presenting my new Pump Bag!!

taraaa!


I cut the fabric the night before and sewed it last night. Cutting actually took a while because I made up the pattern myself based on my existing (dying) pump bag. How come so hard to get my measurement/math right? plus after i cut i recut again because i didn't like the original colour combination. what a waste of time. This is why i avoided making a bag for myself because i know i'll have too much critisism for my own work. I wanted something simple and roomy like the old pump bag. I’ve also designed the bag so that it’s reversible!

I chose contrasting colours so that I can choose which colour suit my mood that day. But I think both colours look “milky”, if that makes any sense. So milky is fitting for a pump bag right? I’m tempted to put a cartoonish cow appliqué but that would be too much/too milky…huhu..

So today I get to use my new pump bag to work. Yay!!

salam kenal mommyadam,
i love the green side.. sungguh teruja tengok crafting camni... saya pun minat menjahit tapi mesin jahit tiada di rumah. kena tunggu balik kampung baru bleh tunjuk skill..

emmachann said...

Aida!!

U really put a benchmark for my husband.. we were reading your blog and he said you are such a good example.. *hint2 kat aku lah tu suruh menjahit..* haha..

I dont have the passion yet, tp I hope someday I will..insyaAllah..

iza said...

salam perkenalan too...i like the craft made by u.. teruja...kalaula i buleh buat cenggitu....

Lan0stZz said...

MommyAdam said...

sualeen,
i pun pinjam je my auntie punya machine. skill pun takde! (haven't touched a sewing machine since form 3 which was 9 years ago) maluuuu...hehe

ima,
it took me many years and one baby for the domestic passion in me finally kick off! haha..but once i start i wish i'd have started sooner =)

iza,
jom join i crafting =)

lana,
so far dah ade sedikit increase. i'm keeping a table on my pumping yield daily. will update after some given time ok..

mamasyazmar said...

sukenyeee tgk your crafts, i nie dah ler kerastangan, buta seni pulak tu tp i vow to at least try buat the cloth baby shoes. jahit tangan pun boleh kan?

-me- said...

wowieeee...
ur sewing project makin lama makin vedevah nih...
best best!

Ernie Khairina Mahtar said...

dot! u can open a biz la. even my hubby pun puji!

MommyAdam said...

mamasyazmar,
i find that making cloth baby shoes are easier by hand. for a sewing machine newbie like me, that is. mungkin kalau org yg dah expert menjahit senang kot pakai machine =) goodluck in trying out the project! show off the pics once it's completed ok..i'd love to see it..hehe

-me-,
thank you =)

ernie,
tq for the suggestion =) minat jugak nak sell some handmade stuff..but seriously takde masa la ernie..kesian Adam...hehe..tp manela tau in the future kalau aku berjaya jadi housewife! yay!

Ernie Khairina Mahtar said...
