Since the theme is batik, I had to get matching plain coloured cloth to complement it.


This is an old piece of batik from my mum’s collection.

Ginger loves it!


Yes, he loves, loves, loves, it!

The cotton must be really comfortable, that’s why.


Timmy wouldn’t let go of it either!


This is a two-layered cotton patchwork without padding in between.

It measures 52 1/2 inches by 79 inches.


The backing cloth is contributed by Agnes and Gerley.


Me likes, me likes, me likes!


For a donation of RM150, you get to help a street dog’s neutering or a street cat’s plus two vaccinations. In return, you get to take home this homesewn batik patchwork, designed by the PatioCats!

Happy Bidding!!
