What materials did you use? I have found some wonderful cotton-silk fabrics in the most wonderful vibrant colours in the local markets here in Yangon (Rangoon). The shawl that is wrapped around the base of the cushion is lined with flannel. I used mother of pearl buttons for the closure of the shawl.

What are you most proud of? I have been experimenting with fabric manipulation over the last couple of weeks: smocking, pleating and gathering. I really like the effect a solid fabric can have by adding a little bit of texture. It just says: touch me!

Such lush colors! These fabrics are simply wonderful! Love the way they shimmer and change. The texture of the pleats and gathers you've added truly brings the fabrics to life.
