Me being the very2 unmalu me..I went over to Jids to see and touch and feel the tudung for myself, and boy..I was very2 the menggeletar at that time....cantiikk!!!!! [b4 this tgk Jid pki aje]
The problem then was:
1- I didnt know where to tempah the tudung [Jid's had hers made by the tailor who made her wedding dress...tak brani nak tanya kat mana - coz I knew I couldnt afford ;p)
2- I knew if I were to ask my tailor to make it for me - and the thing does not come out exactly the same as I want it to be..I'll freak!!
so, I decided to try make the tudung myself..it didnt seem hard, and luckily I am a sucker for making pretty things [since forever!] plus I love the challenge!
and this was my first attemp making the tudung :
Since after Mus' wedding there wasnt any wedding that I had to attend and make pretty tudungs for, I started to focus on my wedding tudungs..
I spent ridiculous amount of time and money on my wedding tudung, making 2-3 extras so that I could choose the best..lucky for me I know where to find cheap cystals [borong style] and beautiful laces...the only tricky part was the iron on swarvosky crystal..but alhamdulillah..I managed to find those too...[they were cheaper back then, this year the price has gone sky high!fuhh]
and here are my wedding tudungs that had the chance to get [some] spotlight of the day....
my tudung Nikah
so, anyways..excited with my tudungs..I decided to make Mom tudungs too!!
this one she wore on my malam Nikah...
and this one during my reception..
and starting from there, my friends had been asking me to help them make their wedding tudung, since these are really good friends of mine..I just couldnt say no.. ;)
so far, I've made tudungs for Elyn n Idayu.
Idayu - Nikah
Elyn - Nikah n Reception
and now.. I am on my next project, G's tudung Nikah..so last saturday I went to Jalan TAR to give Ayu her reception tudung and meet G to buy the materials for her tudung, and when we were at SSF, I accidently met my primary school friend, Kak Hawa, she saw the tudung I made for Ayu, and now..........DIA PULAK NAK TEMPAH...... [sebenarnya nak cerita bab ni jerr..tapi menjela pulak...]
adoooiii......... I TAK AMBIL TEMPAHAN laa kak....but how do u say no..?!?!
I tak reti!!! HELP ME!!!
Its not that I dont want to..but I just cannot afford to...mana ade mase nak menjahit..menampal..and paling penting nak mencari the materials..!!!...the ones I made for my friends pun bersekang mata sampai 3-4 pagi...sanggup because kawan yang rapat...
the BIG Q is..how do I charge? based on what? experience or expertise..zero...!!!!!buat suke2 jer b4 ni.. [i have never charged my friends b4]...and walaupun tak susah nak buat...but its not easy too...renyahhhh...takkan tak charge pulak kan...so how..how..how...??
