IF - String

In Indonesia long time ago, our mother usually use a long batik shawl called 'selendang' to help their children learn to walk or to cradle the babies, and in the afternoon mother and baby usually take a short walk around the neighborhood and have a little chat.


This time IF topic remind me of how the mothers use the 'selendang' to walk their baby, it surely look like a proffesional puppeteer and their puppet on a string :D

*batik is surely a trend at this time :) , I'm really proud of it!
