HANISYAHIDA was my new student. She came just to learn sewing, nothing specific in particular. After some brief talk we decided to make a lap-top sleeve.

She was a fast learner and could sew a really straight line.....( for a first timer like her, that really matters) She has the flair of sewing. First day just taught her on handling of sewing machine and about my 'old girl' and what she is capable of...... some stitching patterns and a little bit of fabrics and threads. Then we proceed on the actual size of her lappy-sleeve and I scribbled off the pattern and ..... so on and on!

Well, here it is.

It took her two days to complete this. I am proud of her.

She really has steady hands.
I envy her!

And it looks like professionals' work already for a beginner.

Yes, she is good with her fingers. But think she won't just on for crafty things cos she is pursuing on her MASTERS very soon... a brilliant child!

Have visited your blog. You have lots of nice fabric collections. Will visit you often.

I think I am the lucky one to have such a good new-sewer like Shahida.
