Ramadhan GIF

I have no idea how to make GIF using adobe, so I use http://gifmaker.me/ instead to combine these two pictures :) 

Shibori Sun-dye-ing

Shoutout to my new hobby! Yes, besides trying to figure out those Adobe Illustrator buttons and tools to make a customized fabric pattern, I have another new hobbies which is making shibori. It begin when I'm suddenly in love looking all those picture of shibori dress and home decoration on the internet, yet they sell it in a high price (lol again)!

I learned from Youtube and bought myself a dye (not the natural dye since I am a beginner). And tadaaa I'm impressed by my own first shibori! Unfortunately, those shibori I made after my first project were a failure lol. But I do not lose my hope and trying again and again. It's so fun!

Scarf Making

As much as I want to find new things in life and that I'm currently able to use Adobe Illustrator (thanks job description), I want to make my own fabric pattern! Silk scarf is really a thing right now and a lot of online shop sell it in a really high price. So I decided to designing my own pattern and send it to the vendor to print mine.

My Flo on screen:

My Flo in real life:

The printing quality is so good yet I did not really like the fabric material. I might have chosen other silk material yet I should go to Pasar Mayestik to check what kind of silk I want to use. And... I want to take this seriously, I have to find another vendor because it's still quite expensive to produce a mass item.

There might be a lot of similar scarf with a low price, but you have to understand that you also have to pay for the design for customized printed scarf, especially those who have a really unique pattern. The artist poured their heart out during the making. :)
