Fabulous Batik Fabric

I love the yummy fall colors of the batik fabric I recently purchased at Joann Fabric’s. Originally, I purchased it for my 2008 beaded journal pages but now I’m thinking of creating journal bracelets instead so I won’t need it for that. The one above on the right reminds me of Brian Froud’s fairy world.

Hmmmm, now what can I use all of this fabric for? Cloth art dolls?

Aren’t those seed pods in the fabric on the right just great?

When I was at the cutting station, I had the most interesting conversation with the sales clerk about the colors and patterns in these fabrics. I told her that I loved how your mind and imagination could play with the dots and swirls and see all sorts of interesting things in those patterns. It’s always changing everytime you look at it. She agreed and said that they all reminded her of dreams. That thought positively captivated me. Fabric dreams…

    Gorgeous fabrics, Karen ! I love batik…In fact, I bought all the supplies for making my own batik fabric; white cotton material, dyes, wax, and a tjanting (the little hollow metal tool for applying the wax)…Lots of fun but time consuming and very messy !

    Thanks Dora! Wow, that sounds like a lot of fun to make your own batik fabric. I had such a good time when I painted fabric last month.
