Glorious batiks

December 20, 2010 § 4 Comments

Washing and ironing batiks doesn’t really sound like much fun, does it? Especially if, like me, you are not one to wash your fabric before you use it.

However, I made an exception this time because I want to use these batiks for appliqué and they’re much easier to handle once they’ve been washed. What did surprise me was how gorgeous they looked on the line, especially viewed through the bamboo. It was almost like seeing them in the jungle somewhere. So here they are wild and free and glorious…

And here they all are tamed once more…

I think I prefer them wild and free.
