A NEW START

Last year I had a baby girl, which is my third child, and the time just flew. My elder girl is in second standard and my boy will start school this year, hopefully…InShaAllah… Life becomes sooo busy with tiny tots around. I feel like yesterday that I’ve given birth to Hamna and tomorrow she’s turning 1. That’s just my thought. Officially she’ll turn 1 on Feb 3rd. Sewing is my hobby. So whenever i get a little time, I sit over to sew. Here’s a sneak peek of what I’ve sewn last year…

This one is for my soon to be 8 years old daughter hana. She loves full length twirly dresses and I love to make dresses for her.

I have done ruffles at the bottom and piping details all over the front opening and edges of the waist belt.

This is a light weight chiffon fabric. She has worn black inner and leggings underneath.

THE BLUE FAIRY DRESS

The Holy month Ramadan is here. We all are blessed to witness this Ramadan. So please utilize the benefits of this month to the maximum by increasing our Ibadah. May Allah accept all our worships and duaa. Please include me and my family in your valuable duaa…

Recently I had my third baby… Recent means Feb 3rd… Her name is Hamna Fathima. My eldest daughter Hana Fathima’s birthday falls on Feb 5th. I wished if Hamna came 2 days later, both my girls would’ve been sharing the same birth date 🙂 …but there’s nothing we could do about it… Allah plans everything for good.

Hana and my son Muhammed was born in India. I wanted to deliver Hamna here in Dubai. But as I said earlier, Allah plans everything and everything for good. At the last moment I had to change my plans and had to go to India for delivery. Since Hana was going to school and the final exams were soon to commence, I couldn’t take her with me to India. That departure from the airport was the most heart-breaking moment for me. That was in the 3rd week of January. Daily she used to call and cry. Even now when I think of that, tears jerk from my eyes.

Do you know why I shared this long story?…I will tell… Ever since I started sewing, Hana wore only dresses sewn by me for her birthdays. And her birthday falls on February. Me in India and she in Dubai. I decided to make a dress for her birthday and send it to her. Luckily one of our relatives was travelling to dubai at that time. So, within 2 days I bought the fabrics and whipped up a dress for my angel. And that is this Blue Fairy Dress. Hope you guys liked it.
