So the last time I blogged I was hoping that I would be journaling my endeavors on a regular basis and showcasing my latest creations. However life has a way of getting in the way of such aspirations. Anyhoo... now it's time to buckle down and get down to business. There are two fairs coming up in Dhaka. I have jointly taken a stall with a friend at the upcoming American Bazaar hosted by the Dhaka American Womens Club at the American International School on Friday November 25, 2011. So now I really do have to get my butt in gear and get as many things made for the bazaar.
Recently I have been working on my satin creations ( satin cutwork) that work like iron on stickers to put on clothing such as tops, kameez and scarfs ( dupattas). So far people have ordered these stickers in sets such as pieces to to place around wrists, collar/neckline and sometimes in the front hem of the kameez. I will have to created one of my kameez's to photograph and showcase on my blog here in the near future.
In addition to the stickers and satin pieces, I am also hoping to make some table runners/ centerpieces and table placemat sets. I would love to make some tablecloths but that is way to time consuming and I will probably not be able to meet the deadling for the end of the month. This time around I will concentrate on the placemats.
The other thing I am hoping to get to is cloth handbags. Afterall the blogspot is called Zaffran Jhola...ie. jhola meaning bag or sack. There in lies by real passion-bags!!! and I have not made any time recently to actually work on my bag making skills.
Let's see how many items I can get done in the next two weeks. Stay tuned for upcoming updates!
