and since it is the second (and last :(  ) week of the school holidays, i've  been helping sebastian to finish his doll that they have been working on in craft lessons at school this year. his is a balinese boy called 'kadek'. sebastian hand-sewed the edge of the batik sarong and i helped him with the head-dress and to complete the outfit with a little ikat cloth on top of the sarong and a little silk sash to hold it all together. tomorrow we want to sew up the t-shirt and sebastian still has to embroider the eyes and mouth on the face…
