Batik Apron


I made my first batik apron specially for my best friend Bee Yinn of Rasa Malaysia, who is also the owner/writer/chef/photographer of the famous food blog for Asian Recipes and Cooking. I always wanted to make something for her as thank you gift for inspiring me to blogabout my hobby! Without her encouragement, there wouldn’t be Craft Passion. This saga began last year when she came back for holidays from California, she encouraged me to create a blog, knowing that I am passionate about handicraft, so that I can post up my craftworks to let the world see my creations.


I specially designed this batik apron for her after I saw the recent interview by a local newspaper Kwang Wah Daily about her food blog. I think she really needed an nice apron for the press exposure 🙂

I used a tea-towel-like fabric as the base material of the apron and ran a batik lining around it to create a Malaysian feel. I bought this handprinted batik fabric from Terengganu, a state on the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia. This apron is reversible, with Rasa Malaysia appliques on one side and plain appearance on the other side.


Besides using it as an apron, she can also fold it and use it as a table mat for her food photography.

  6. This apron is really beautiful and impressive! Guess you must have put a lot of brain juice to come out with this unique design! I have to say it once more, u r very talented!

  7. I really love this apron. Apron(s) were the first item that I learned to sew. Mine wasn’t as good as yours by any I just love aprons. I bought my husband a generic white apron and had his name embroidered on by a friend of mine, since I don’t cook my husband loves to cook. his favorite channel is HGTV, go figure.

  8. ah! Rasa Malaysia! another blog I love! great choice of fabric! very fitting to use batik cloth for the theme! 😀
