An Island Batik Ambassador Adventure
Our April IBA project was “Adventurous Applique.” This played perfectly into a little project I have been wanting to do – a little project tote bag. I pulled out a number of the six inch strips from the rolls we received from Island Batiks, cut them into various strip widths and sewed two sets together. I sewed those to a neutral top.
I pulled out my bag of IB scraps and cut a bunch of long skinny flower petals. I fused a stem and then fused the petals. I did the flower as a raw applique and added a center.
A lining was added and voila! A cute little project tote bag that’s full of color, color, color!
