Island Batik Ambassador Program: March Challenge

This month's challenge was to make any project I want, with any Island Batik fabric collection I choose.  I made Bowl Me Over 2.0, Patterns By Annie. The red strips are from Ravishing Reds, and the Parakeet (lining) is from Tantalizing Teals. I used Aurifil thread, although this is not the collection I was assigned for the April challenge- you'll see that soon. I used a Schmetz microtex needle, which I find works better with batiks than my usual Schmetz topstitch needle. The label is by Kylie and the Machine, and I used my rivet press from Kam Snaps.

Fabric delivery!

Yesterday I received my parcel from Lovely Jubbly Fabrics. They're in the UK and I'm in the US, but somehow their fabric keeps jumping into my shopping cart. It's a mystery! 🤣 Look how nicely they wrap everything up. ❤️ Libs Elliott fabric! I also got a decal and a pin.
