Handmade Embroidered Tudung/ Headscarf/Hijab

I woke up early this morning at 7 a.m and still havnt take a nap yet to finish up my embroidery work ! I'm feeling so exhausted now ... coz sewing is kinda tiring for the eyes and I feel back ache at the base of the neck.. lol. But still .. Im not done yet with this thing !

I would like to share a lil bit about this as requested by some friends ... thanx for your interest :) I've been doing this Embroidery hijab business since 3 years back but I started learning embroidery after I finished my high school ( about 9 years ago).... at that time my sister was doing a small smocking dress business, so she taught me how to do smocking to make her life simpler ...  so I did the smocking part and she sew the dress ! I then realized that embroidery was more interesting than smocking .. so I slowly learnt by myself just thru books. So here are two latest embroidered hijabs that I've been working these two weeks. The material of this hijab is voile and the hem stitch is done along both sides.




I started doing business on this because.. people admire this embroidery hijab everytime I wear them... since that, Im getting more and more customers ... this is also the reason why .. till now I never applied for jobs, though I dont deny that deeep down inside of me.. I envy with my friends who are employed :(

I'm into RE and unfortunately with my lil baby around 24/7, I didn't have the TIME to really focus on it.. I;ve plenty of books on RE, bullions etc.. So, keep up k!

thanks all. I take it as a compliment :)

ribbon clown: Im flattered. You've given me inspirations to do much better in the future. But sometimes I get bored with this coz I have to work on this the whole day, everyday ! :( If you do it as a hobby, that would be different dear .. I think you'll be more enjoy doing it. Well, if u r bz with the lil ones, at least spend an hour/day to finish up your RE work...its good 2 b slow and steady :)
