Batiks...

Last week I conducted a highly scientific poll. I wanted to determine which color "the masses" would choose for my Wristlet Give Away this month. I don't know if those playing along were influenced by my post earlier in the week about eggplants, but the color that was chosen was "Eggplant Purple." I decided to make this month's Give Away purple in color, but I also came up with this little creation. Because the color purple was such a hit, I'm hoping this wristlet will tempt someone to purchase. (Yes, I know, I'm an acute businesswoman -- and an optimist!)

These tantalizing batiks by Hoffman Fabrics are luscious. Hoffman designs and creates innovative and unique hand-dyed and hand-painted batik fabrics of the highest quality.

These fabrics are of such a high caliber that they have a silk-like texture. Generally speaking, the higher the thread count, the more silk-like the fabric feels and, believe me, these fabrics are silky-smooth!

Also, when the thread count is high it not only feels more smooth, but it repels dirt or dust much better. It's much easier to "brush off" the dust or soil from high caliber fabric than it is for a less expensive fabric. That's one of the reasons I use more expensive fabrics on my totes. Love the deep, dark, purpley eggplant color of these fabrics...

This wristlet will be in my Etsy later today.
Check back tomorrow for my Wristlet Give-Away!

Love it! I think the next quilt I do, I'm going to use batik in some way. You've inspired me again.
