Presser Feet - mesin Industri


Saya baru je gunakan mesin jahit industri.. hui, memang laju sangat dan sedang dlm proses belajar dan praktis lagi. Beberapa hari lepas Zura Busana Jalinan Kasih ada war-warkan jualan presser feet, saya pon rembat ajelah walaupun x tau mcm mana lagi nak guna feet tu. Zura kata sesuai untuk jahit tudung sebab ada guide... saya x jahit tudung tapi memang banyak boleh guna, so saya oder je tapak tu sekali dengan tapak teflon.. 

ni la rupa tapak mesin jahit industri tu.. nampak guide yg paling kanan tu...?

Dapat je tapak tu saya terus test drive... hasilnya, sgt mudah untuk guide kain especially masa jahit curve. Kira saya boleh merempit la dengan mesin industri saya ni, hehehe... smooth je.. walaupun laju, tapi masih boleh guide kain tu ikut curve yang saya nak.. :) saya sangat puas hati, x nyesal la beli tapak ni.. TQ Zura. Nanti kalau ada tapak best sila roger!

Sila abaikan herot jahitan tu, saya perlu masa untuk sesi ramah mesra dengan mesin  industri ni

tgk die guide tu, pejam mata pon jadi.. waaaaa

DIY - Fitted Cloth Diaper


Untuk Entry ni nak buat tutorial Fitted dlm bahasa Melayu, banyak sebenarnya tutorial dlm bahasa inggeris, google saje.. For mommies yang nak try DIY Fitted Diaper ni boleh cuba ya!

Dapatkan mana-mana pattern Diaper yg disukai. Untuk projek ni saya gunakan patter Cloth Revolution atau boleh pergi ke web Zany Zebra , ada banyak link free pattern.

 Bahan yang diperlukan
  • Kain sebelah luar dan dalam - material cotton flannel, cotton knit
  • Kain soaker/penyerap lembapan - material tuala/terry/microfibre, cotton knit/ t-shirt lama, kain lampin 4 segi pon boleh.
  • getah kain saiz 1cm / 1/4"
  • velcro / butang

1- Potong 2 helai kain ikut pattern yang dipilih. 1 lapisan luar dan satu lapisan dalam. Pastikan pattern yang dipilih ada basi (seam allowance atau tidak) takut nanti terkecil pulak. Kain yang saya gunakan cotton knit corak forest untuk luar dan plain flannel kuning untuk belah dalam

2- Potong soaker ikut saiz yang sesuai. Jumlah lapisan soaker bergantung pada penyerapan kain. Lagi tebal kain, lagi banyak serapan dan lebih bulky. Susun lapisan soaker dan jahit tepi.

3-  Letak soaker pada kain untuk lapisan dalam. Letak bahagian bawah kain. Soaker dijahit pada lapisan yang sebelah dalam.

4- Susun kain seperti dalam gambar dan jahit keliling perimeter. Tinggalkan sedikit bahagian terbuka untuk terbalikkan side betul nanti.

Susun seperti ini untuk jahit perimeter
Mula jahit untuk cantum kain.
Tinggalkan sedikit bahagia yang tidak berjahit

5- Potong getah ikut panjang yang sesuai. Tanda jarak untuk getah dan jahit pada tepi kain. Buat dikedua bukaan kaki dan pingang.
Ukur dan potong getah. Tanda tempat untuk jahit.
tandakan tempat jahit getah

jahit hujung getah pada tempat yang ditanda
Sembat sementara

Jahit sembat sementara untuk pegang getah
Ulang proses jahit getah sementara di ketiga tempat yang perlu

6- Terbalikkan Kain yg dijahit tadi dan buat kemasan topsticth keliling diaper. pastikan jahit tepi getah dan buat casing untuk getah.
lubang yang ditinggalkan untuk terbalikkan kain.
Panduan mula jahit topstich, boleh mula dari sini.
jahit topstitch sampai atas laluan getah, stop dan pusing kain.
Jahit pintas atas getah. Gunakan saiz jarak saiz 1 untuk rapat dan lebih kukuh jahitan atas getah
Jahit laluan untuk casing getah di kaki. Jahit sampai  habis dan ulang di setiap tempat yang ada getah.
Ok, masa nak jahit tu, boleh ikut panduan arah macam ni. so sekali jalan je...

7- Pasangkan snap atau velcro. Siap!
Pasang Snap Button pakai KAM Plier

Machine behind the job

I started sewing when i was very young, when i was 10 or 11 and my first project was a doll dress for a friend. Later, all was forgotten until my mom gave me a hand down sewing machine, Singer 9210. The machine was broken and was left untouched for a year. Until in 2010, i decided to send it for a repair.

The technician told me that some parts were broken due to age, mind you its almost 20 years old. After some abracadabra, walaaaa.. the machine works like new and the technician said that it should last at least 8 years with continue sewing and servis.  Its old, heavy with solid body that weight more 10kg, nothing if compare with the new portable machine. Yup, it works great! With no manual,  i experienced a series of self learning the hard way.. cost me a few repair along the way.. 

It has 8 decorative stitch which i hardly use, a very loose stitch width dial that has to be 'sendal' with a piece of fold paper which is always missing bcoz my son loves to godeh2

Months later, my mom gave me a serger Singer 14u12a, original Japan and very heavy, also a hand down and  not in working order. hahaha.. it seems like my mom likes to give me broken machines.. hehe.. FYI, she used to be a seamstress. And again the serger is in need of a good repair and missing some part. But after the service and change of the blunt blade, it runs beautifully. It also missing the plastic part that cover the needle and to hold the fabric, but cant find any replacement, well i can live with that. It also missing the steel thread holder, so i just bought the portable 3 thread holder, problem solved. It has no numbering dial like the new serger and the dial is pretty loose so it takes patient and lots of trying n fabric remnants just to have the perfect serging edge.

See, some missing part. An old n heavy machine too, if i ever decide to  bought new serger, this one can bring good money in timbang kati.. hehehe

I told you i learn the hard way... the machines were basicly free, so i cant complain la.... do i want to add another member? huhu.. have to wait ye...
