Batik Chocolate Box

Conceptualizing a chocolate box out of batik.

This is the outcome of my first try at materializing the sewing crafted chocolate box. So the box is just a simple rectangular box with flip lid. It is fitted with a four by two chocolate tray. So it fits eight pralines or truffles just nicely.

Here the chocolate model is the flat round dark peppermint filled chocolate I did for Hazem's 16th birthday. A nice thank you satin ribbon for added embellishment.

Will followup with a nicer box. But if you want to followup with my delicious dark chocolate with peppermint creme, text me at 0199846026. We deliver nationwide.

Thank you.

Batik Table Runner

I'm not much of a frills type of person but following a request I have done this batik table runner with some decorative ends.

The batik is my favorite Sarung Batik Terengganu in red .. it has such a strong commercial touch yet depicts the vibrant spirit of Melayu.

Making use of the two available designs from the sarung I have done the back motif for one side and the body design for the other side. As the length of the runner is more than one and a half meter the side borders are made use to emphasize geometric design. A beautiful bead tassel with a little decorative copper like leave dangles at both ends of the runner providing weight and aesthetic feature.

Hope it is acceptable by you Mr. Lim.
