ibu has got cloth pads! =)

July 20, 2010

Since cloth diapering has been part of our life, I tested my skills in sewing myself some cloth pads. Yup, say it again: c-l-o-t-h.

Why all of the hassles? Hehe..sometimes passion combined with satisfaction could become madness. [my dearest hubby even called me the dark-witch-tailor, quoting a role from a spanish drama].

I started with a piece of pocket pad, which you can insert any insert of any size or any material, depending of your menstrual flow [heavy or medium]. Then I tried the all-in-one pad. Both are good for me.

The picture of AiO pads above are the latest pads that i sewn. This morning, I ‘presented’ the shocking pink coloured to my sister, Rayyan. Well, my intention was to let her try my sample pad and ask for testimonial.

A few weeks ago, I also made myself a pad  bag, some people call it wetbag. This little bag can hold two regular pads.

The inside of this bag is lined with waterproof layer.

Something for Nadyne

July 6, 2009

P8230309Yesterday afternoon, while I was having my leasure time with DH and kids having some fun here and there, I was a bit disturbed by the way Nadyne improperly keeping her jumbo colour pencils. It’s not because it looked untidy, but it just hit me with an idea of sewing something nice for her.  Yup, i really mean s-e-w-i-n-g.

Well..after trimming about the right size of 2 differents materials, arrange them accordingly, i sew it very straight-forwardly [yeaa yeaa..I do admit that i AM amateur], putting on the white ribbon to make a simple tie, and taddaaa..I came up with something little thing for my little ones!

And believe it or not, it just took about 10 minutes for me to complete it!

At the end, I have saved  some RM on fuel [while not contributing to air pollution] , some RM on the little pouch itself, saving my energy, reducing the usage of plastic bags.. huhuhu..wut a day 😉
