Craft: Sewing Lace

Another backdated story. Hopefully still not basi.. huhu.
Previously I had posted on the sample picture of our baju kurung for ‘baju contoh‘, to be given to the tailor.
Well here’s the outcome.

Quite dissapointed with the result. Can you see the waistline?
And it was too fit at her arms. My mom altered the arms’ area.
I bought blue lace to patch on the waistline.
Managed to finish sewed it the day before raya. (Including my own baju)
Here’s the picture:

Nice isn’t it? Hehe. Now I have one baju to sew the lace on it. Requested by my friend. It’s my passion… my favourite things to do. Hehe.

Craft: Froggy

Remember the felt froggy I had posted months ago?

Haha. Some of you might recognised them. The yellow froggy belongs to Smallkucing, The green one belongs to Ina, Purple for Oster and Pink for Janet.

Many were asking me how did I punched the hole for the keychain ring.

Ok, let me share you how to make it.

First of all, you need to have these two tools.

1. One Hole Punch

2. Eyelet punch (to make it tight)

Here’s the steps to do it.

1. Punch one hole on the selected area.

2.  Take one eyelet.

3. Place it on the hole.

4. Make sure the eyelet punch in a correct position (as in the picture).

5. Punch and make sure it tight.

Temptation #24: Dadih Jagung

Last Friday, Amani’s nursery had a ramah tamah Aidilfitri
Every parents were encouraged to supply food for the ocassion.

image

Since receiving the memo, I started to think what I would prepare for them?
I thought of cupcakes but I couldn’t think of any shop that would sell cupcakes in a big qantities without reservation. At last, I made ‘Dadih Jagung’ for them.

Indeed I’m not a fan of corn flavour. Tried to think like a kid. Kids prefer sweet food. So.. there you go. 60 cups of Dadih Jagung for kids.
** Very happy to see the teacher return my empty contenna. Hihi. x)

Temptation #23: Mini Chocolate Cheese Tart

During raya, people would ask me “Banyak buat kuih?” 

Ok, here let me answer it generally.

Cake? Please don’t mention it to me. I’m no good in baking cakes. Honestly!

Biscuits? Yes. I prefer baking biscuits…. preferably the simple one. Muahahaha….

This year I only bake two types of biscuits. One of them is:

Mini Chocolate Cheese Tart

choc cheese

Don’t ask me how to make the shell tarts. I just bought ready made shells from someone in facebook.  LOL. (Nama pun lazy blogger, baking pun lazy. Aiyoo….. )

I can only sharing with you how to make the filling.

Ingredients:

250g Cream cheese (I’m using Philadelphia)

25g butter

1 cup Icing sugar

1 bar Cooking chocolate (double boiling)

Preparation:

1. Blend the cream cheese and butter until it looks creamy…. add in sugar, continue blend it until well mixed. 

2. Put some chocolate filling into the baked pastry shells

3. Top  it with the cheese filling

4. Place some chocolate filling onto it and swirl it into a marbling effect,or you can make pattern that you like (my failed attempt. 😦 )

5. Bake at 200 C for 10-12 minutes

Easy right? Kids love to have this biscuit. I prefer the non-baked one. But since it is to be served for raya celebration, baked should be necessary.
