The One About the Framed Fabric

Some years back while in Bali, I got greedy and bought more Batik fabric than I needed. The prints were so intricate and the fabric itself was so soft, I couldn’t help myself. After making a few pieces to wear, I thought to make a wall hanging of one of the prints. These were after all meant to be souvenirs.img_3693

I had pallet wood leftover from another project so all I had to do was measure, cut and staple.

Once the frame was set, all I did was to drape the fabric around and use the staple gun to pin it in place. And then, I had a lovely wall hanging which would remind me of time spend sipping coffee in Ubud.

The One With Triangles

It was a fine sunny Saturday when I found myself in the fabric store. It was also a lucky day; I found fabric I wasnt even looking for.

The were rolls of these thick cotton-spandex blend; great for making office wear. For my day-to-day office wear, I like simple, no fuss dresses. Which why I love shift dresses [and keep on making them]. To add a bit of twist to the shift, I added triangles to the torso

I didn’t get the triangles to meet in the middle as the joints would have gotten too thick. Instead, I ran a cross stitch two centimetres from the triangles and it formed a perfect X.
