When I first started sewing, I thought there will only be sewing machines, threads, needles & fabrics involved. Little that I know, I have created a monster deep inside me
1. The Sewing Machine Monster
First, it was only my Singer Tradition portable sewing machine. Then, I need a serging machine. Enchek Kedek agreed, and I bought one.
Then, I started sewing bags and my portable Singer cant handle the think material, so I bought a Singer industrial machine.
I thought that was all, until I found out about embroidery machine and straight away falls for it. After surveys and Google-ing, hands down on Janome MC350E. By the way, its Tujuh Ribu, Lima Ratus, Sembilan Puluh Lapan Ringgit Sahaja, sambil saya pengsan bersahaja
But that was not all. I tried asking my friend, who is a dealer for Bernina sewing machines. She suggested Bernina B580 which cost *drumrolls* Sembilan Belas Ribu Ringgit sambil pengsan beberapa kali.
I am in the middle of recovering myself, slowly, to erase my interest in embroidery machines. Sigh. But Enchek Kedek said that I can have that Janome, ONE DAY, EVENTUALLY, but DEFINITELY NOT NOW. So at least I have his permission to start menabung.
2. The Fabric Monster
I started off with buying cheap cottons (RM4/meter). Then, I tried looking for nicer cottons online. I accidently expanded my search range and found designers cotton. Talking about Dunia Tanpa Sempadan.
Enchek Kedek taught me how to shop online using credit card internationally, and I say, HELLO ETSY! I became a fabricworm. From 1 container of fabrics, to many-many containers of fabrics. In fact, I still have fabrics on top of my table, waiting for me to buy new containers to put them in to
3. The Pattern Monster
I need patterns to refer to when sewing, Im a self taught ‘tukang jahit’ and I refer to my notes everytime. PDF patterns are now easy. Just one click away, and cheap too. I bought too MANY patterns. Tidak menang tangan menjahit!
As of now, these are the only monsters that I have inside me. And I am glad that Enchek Kedek is very understanding, strong-hearted, patient & support my
