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....
so, anyways..excited with my tudungs..I decided to make Mom tudungs too!!
so far, I've made tudungs for Elyn n Idayu.
Idayu - Nikah
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...??
I need help!
