Happy Monday everyone!
I am so excited to show you the new batik I just finished!
This is the 3rd batik I have made so far!
To make my owl, I sketched out a couple of ideas and then picked the one I liked the best to draw in pencil on a piece of cotton fabric.
After I sketched him out, I painted on the gutta resist to save the white lines and then started painting in the color with the fabric dyes.
When it was all done, I sewed it on to a 20 x 20 green pillow that I had just asking to be decorated! :)
My final step was to hand-sew an orange pom pom trim border!
A new pillow to add to my decor!
I just love how it turned out!
It was so much FUN to do that I already have my 4th one in the works!
I promise to have it ready to show it to you next week!
What FUN things are you doing this week?
Please leave me a note and let us know!
We cannot wait to hear all about them!
