One of my fabric dyeing forums recently had a resist swap where participating members traded in fat eights of their favorite resist method and one of the pieces I received back was a beautiful piece of batik that the owner had created in a workshop she’d done this year.
Needless to say I was flabbergasted to get such a beautiful piece of fabric and I immediately wanted to do something with it. I have to admit this is probably the first time that I’ve ever had the urge to create something right away with a piece of material I’ve gotten. Usually I get ideas but put them off but this one I had to do something with. It just screamed pillow to me and that’s what I did.
My house has limited wall-space as it’s very open and I wanted to make something that could be seen by any visitors so the pillow seemed a logical choice. I got lucky in picking out the matching fabric and cording from the local Walmart that was closing down their fabric department so I probably paid less than five dollars, which made me happy.
Much thanks to Kathy for sharing her marvellous creation.
