I know a lot of you probably have questions about what to get when you’re ready to make your own batik, or whether you can make your favourite one yourself.
Here are five simple tips to help you make your dream one.1.
Buy a batik.
This one is pretty straightforward: go to your nearest department store, shop online, or get the one you like.
I’ve made my own, and I can tell you it’s a lot easier than buying a bunch of stuff you’ll never wear.
The best thing is that the quality is so good that you’ll find that it’s easy to keep on using it.2.
Choose your size.
This is important because if you don’t choose a size that’s right for you, you won’t be able to make it as colourful as you’d like.
Here’s what I recommend for the best colours for my batik:You’ll need:A big, wide (or deep) fabric (mine is 30 x 40 cm) to cover the entire width of your body, with a top-side seam at the bottom.
You can use fabric like a T-shirt or a hoodie, but I prefer to use a fabric that will stretch when stretched out, so the fabric is the only one I used.
A sharp knife or scissors for cutting the fabric.
A soft cotton cloth to cover your body.
I bought mine from Zara, but you can also find the material at most department stores.
It’ll come in a range of colours and weights, and you can buy a range to match your body shape and hair colour.
I love the dark colours for this project, but any colour will work.3.
Put it all together.
You’re going to need to take your fabric, scissors, fabric, and fabric wrapping, and lay it flat.
Then, you’ll need to use the sharp knife to cut the fabric, then place the fabric over the edge of the fabric wrapping.
Make sure to do this while the fabric wraps are still wet.
Then place the finished batik on top of the finished fabric, making sure to put the wrap over the edges of the batiki as well.
(Be careful not to accidentally flip the batika over, and to make sure that the fabric doesn’t flip over and get stuck.)4.
Try out the colours.
After a few attempts, you might find that you’re happy with the colour that you chose, or maybe you have a different colour you’d love to try.
If you like a different look, make sure you take a photo of it so you can see what colours you ended up with.

Put the batiks away.
The process of making your batik is simple.
Cut your fabric.
Cut the fabric wrap, then cut the top edge of your fabric and the bottom edge of each of your batiags.
The two ends of the wrap will make up your batika, so put your fabric in the freezer and then take your batiki to a warm place to warm it up.
You’ll then need to tie your batia together with a little ribbon.
When the batia is done, take it out of the freezer, wrap it in the ribbon, and place it back in the refrigerator for at least 10 minutes.
It’s important to let your batias cool down before you take them out of your fridge, so they don’t get too hot.
Once your bataiks are cooled, you can put them away.
If you have any questions about your batikan, just ask away on Instagram.
