On my last two trips to Malaysia, I picked up some sarong fabric. I've had these sarongs sitting in a bag, waiting to be turned into clothes for over two years. I had ideas, when I bought them, that they'd make great skirts, or blouses, or something.
A couple of them are already sewn into sarongs (stitched up ends to be large tubes of material), but that's okay because it's one less step towards being turned into a skirt.
I've whittled away some of the fabric, and narrowed down my ideas to four projects using these fabrics.
And, I have special plans for these two.
The floral batik sarongs are usually for women and the checked fabric is usually designated for men's sarongs. I couldn't pass up either of these because of their vibrant colors.
Now, if only I knew how to sew (more than refastening a button) or knew someone with a sewing machine who could help me.
