Searching for Treasures in Asia – part 8

I am very excited about the batik fabrics I purchased at the Craft Complex in Kuala Lumpur! I’m always on the lookout for unique designs, and now I think I’m ready to create my own batik designs too.



My second batik class went by so quickly.  I wanted to spend more time enjoying the calming effects of painting!   After the small design was approved, I had to finish two owl panels for my custom diaper bag design.  Here are the final designs:

I also picked up a batik starter kit for fun.  The batik conlay will be used for my designs. Now all I need is some broad cloth and fabric paint.


I’ll miss the batik class and Kuala Lumpur!


Stay tuned there’s more to come from LaCartera!

    I like batik as well. One of my favorite tops is navy batiste with small designs of whit, light blue and a touch of deep pink. It is a happy top and comfy. It is good to see you have returned safely. Welcome back!

        Thanks I’ll try that combo! I didn’t think about the green tea, but I’ve been pumping the vitamin c when I’m awake.
