My New Gadget! Brother 3034D Serger Machine

Brother3034d

Iyahhhhhh krup krup krup (bunyi tulang jari jemari) Wahh gila lamaaaaaa tak update blog, my last update was for MH370. That was like more than a month ago. The ill fated plane still has not been found yet, pray for the best.

Thousand apologies, for abandoning this blog, I am too preoccupied with my current obsession….SEWING!! Haha finally , daftar masuk kelas menjahit. I should have enrolled longggg ago. Better late than never. Ingat lagi ada la sapa tah, perli I kt blog ni, kata I fashion designer cokia sbb tak tahu menjahit. Well, I would like to thank that lady (I believed she’s a lady) for leaving such comment in my blog, sbb her comment did motivate me to learn more about sewing. Big thanks to you stranger! Really appreciate your mean comment. Hehehe.

Tujuan utama belajar menjahit bukanlah utk mengambil tempahan, tetapi lebih kepada untuk “backup plan” , sbg contoh kalau tiba-tiba tailor2 saya ada emergency atau masalah kesihatan tidak dapat jahit, tidaklah production terhenti terus, saya masih boleh keluarkan produk ataupon sambung siapkan kerja2 yang terhenti itu.

Tetapi kalau nanti ada cara ada kelapangan, saya berkemungkinan akan mengambil tempahan juga. Tetapi yg pasti adalah sangat limited kuantiti tempahan yg akan saya ambil utk sebulan, kerana utk menjaga kualiti (ye saya jahit sgt lambat) dan juga saya nak kasi ruang utk benda2 lain boleh dilakukan juga, jadi tk boleh ambill banyak sgt orders. Insyallah nnt saya kongsikan gambar2 jahitan saya. Setakat ini saya dh jahit kurung moden, kurung biasa dan 6 panel skirt.

Oh selain itu, just bought a new serger machine. So excited! I can now do the narrow roll hem (normally seen on shawl edges) Yay! Sesiapa nak hantar jahit tepi biasa dan jahit tepi halus di area PJ/Kelana Jaya boleh lah hantar to me ya. Utk jahit tepi halus harga ialah RM1.20 semeter (minimum 4 meter utk setiap kali jahit) dan utk jahit tepi biasa warna hitam atau putih cuma RM0.80 sen semeter Saya tak guna benang polyester yg bulu2 dan senang sangkut tu, saya guna benang nylon yang sama dgn benang jahit baju biasa, lebih tahan lebih cantik.

Ini adalah contoh hasil jahitan mesin jahit tepi Brother 3034D , to those who are interested to buy this, harga ialah RM1300. Memang mahal machine2 ni, tapi berbaloi beli dan cuma peminat2 jahitan jer yg tahu feeling bila ada mesin jahit yg bagus dan boleh jahit cantik. Heee.

It's the mother who throws tantrum...

Ichiro with “ciur” . It is such a bittersweet moment, eventho it wasn’t for real.

Ok, I’m pretty busy with Ichiro nowadays. Sometimes it need more than a great patience to handle him. Knowing me, I’m lacking in that department. But, I tried my best to control my temper as I kept reminds myself that he’s just a baby and that’s what baby does best —> Yeah testing adult patience.

Since, I’m now in PJ , hence I got to look after my son during day time alone. Normally, my mom will give me an extra hand, but since I’m in PJ and nobody at home except the maid, thus I need to look after Ichiro myself. Which once a while gives me a real goosebumps, as I don’t know what to expect for tomorrow. Will he be cranky? Will he cooperate?

Not yet darling…

But whatever it is, yeah I want him to be always with me. I can opt to leave him with my mom back at my hometown but afraid that I will miss him so badly later. So angkut sekali la :)

This entry of mine can be deceiving. It sounds like my son is too demanding and cranky until I can’t stand it. Well, the truth is I think, I’m the one who needs to learn to control my temper and patience when dealing with 8 months old baby. Nothing is wrong with Ichiro and to think again he’s not that demanding compare to other baby that I’d met before. Not at all.

Pardon me, am just throwing my tantrum here….

3 generation – grandpa, daddy and baby

Tapi bila I nak naik hangen, tiba-tiba Ichiro cakap “bumm bumm” [his favourite word at the moment], terus tk jadi…aha comel la plak.

Enjoy random pics of Ichiro. Mommy love you so much, please just bear with me ok. Your daddy spoilt me, so blame him on my attitude.

Oh btw, am about to launch new promotion for every purchase of Usana products via me. Will update the details very very soon [hope can get it ready within these few days] and be sure to stay tune to Mr & Mrs Imran as this blog is going to change its skin again :) [yeah again...] On the biomega contest result, the entry has been drafted and about to be publish, hope I can finish it by this week ok. So sorry for the delay, but yeah the biomega is ready to be ship to the winner. I just bought it last week.

I miss my sewing machine and can’t wait to have my hands on it next week! Am thinking to offer some of sewing project for free to my readers, errr do you guys think you want to wear things that I sew? Well, I make sure it’s pretty la kan. Hohoh. Well, we talk about it later la. I’m not very firm about it yet.

My Brother & Singer sewing machine

Well, I did mention in my previous entry here that I would put up some photos of my new sewing machine. Sadly, haven’t got the chance to do so, sorry. My mom had placed the machine inside our old house [made of wood, with zinc roofing], and it’s pretty hot in there during day time, close to temperature of a burning oven. Hence, comfortable to sew during night time only, and the lighting is very poor so end up I didn’t take any photos.

But fret not, the machine now is no longer in our wooden house. We moved it into the brick house [ehe], so that I could use the machine whenever I got the chance to [read as whenever Ichiro is sleeping]. Good news, I also have a couple of photos of the machines.

I had a tough time using the machine in the beginning. Even though the machine is semi-computerised, but for someone like me who had zero knowledge about sewing , it could be a nightmare

Things getting worst, when my mom also having trouble to familiarize herself with the machine. She kept on making noise on how difficult to sew thick and soft fabric with the machine that I newly bought [my mom was a tailor, has been sewing for about 20-30 years].

I love the machine, I love new technology, I love gadget. But sewing machine ain’t a computer or handphone or camera that I can just simply explore. Sewing machine is super sensitive with the needles and moving mechanical parts, you need to really know what you are doing. I chose Brother over many other brand because of…errrrr…I don’t know. Simply attracted to it, mungkin sbb ia canggih, semi-computerised. Yeah I love everything about computer and if I boleh surf internet dgn sewing machine ni sure lagi best. Huhuh.

But ever since I got more access to the machine [thanks to the new placement], am starting to develop my skills using the machine, had done some googling on tips and proper method to sew via the internet. But was bit frustrated since I couldn’t find video tutorial that I want, thus I thought that maybe I could make video tutorial / tips for beginner. I truly understand the agony and suffer that beginner need to go through, so I hope I can share little knowledge that I have about sewing. Expert can watch but please don’t laugh :D Hehe.

In the video I will use my own sewing macine and serger/overlock machine which are Brother Innovis 50 – NV50 and Singer. Thus, please refrain from asking me on how to use other brand ok.

Ichiro yang sibuk nk menjahit jugak

Till then…daaaaa.

New Gadget! Clover Rotary Cutter

My laptop digital clock showing time now is 2.16 am. I’m still terkebil-kebil depan laptop. I don’t know what to do [should I sleep?], what to read and what to blog. I don’t have any plan to update my blog neway , but since I need to do something in order for me to call it a night , hence I opt for updating my blog then.

~Even though I had basically nothing to blog about.

But people are weird kan? When the author say that he/she got nothing to blog about, most of us will still reading it to the end [same goes to myself also]. Aren’t you? Walaupon dah tahu that particular entry contains nothing worth reading, we are still reading it. Why?

Kalau you ask me why, my answer adalah sbb I busybody and sgt nosy. Hihih. Tidakkah kamu semua juga begitu? Hihih. Kalau tidak mmg la I sorang jer yg keji sket kot. Hehe.

Hmm, hari ni tk diet langsung. Sbb nyer my sanquick orange dah habis, asyik lupa nk beli baru. Oh have I told you that my weight now is 52kg? Yup! My next target is to achieve 50kg by next month. Once you are on track on losing weight, I tell you it can be very very very addictive. I’m getting closer to my old weight which is 46kg. Another 6 kilos to go!

75kg, 72kg, 70kg, 68kg, 65kg, 62kg, 60kg, 59kg, 57kg, 56kg, 54kg, 53kg and….

NOW 52 KILOGRAM!

Rahsianya? For sure la Usana ;)

Hmmm, I’m still looking for a sewing teacher [major in DIY tudung] to come to my house and teach me to sew DIY tudung using my own sewing machine. I know there are many classes available, but I’m looking for a mobile teacher with affordable rate [sudah pasti]. Please please please help me out here ok.

I know already how to sew tudung, it just that I need some guidance on how to jahit lagi cantik. Sbb nyer kain jenis chiffon selalu buat I rasa cam nk head banging. Hehe. And plus I need to know the correct method to sew jersey material as well. Jadi memang jadi, tapi I nk quality jahitan adalah terbaekkk.

Oh btw, I bought new sewing tool today.[heee happie!~beli apa jer sure excited haku ni] Actually, the tool is for quilting or other craft work. But, I think I can try to use for other purpose as well, as long as I deal with fabric, I think I can make use of this tool. The tool is call Rotary Cutter, it can cut straight and curve lines easily. You can play the video to see how easy to use this Rotary Cutter. The brand of my rotary cutter is CLOVER. I got myself the smallest size which is 18mm. Kalau I rasa ok, perhaps I can buy bigger size. But, the sales asistant told me, the smaller the cutter, the easier it would be to cut curvy line. Lagipon yg besar adalah mahal berdegang, sbb tu haku tk beli. Huhuh.

p/s: hmm I cakap tadi tkder idea nk blog kan? Huhu. Tiba-tiba terlajak. Ok nk tido! Babai! Muahssssss.
