The Island Batik Ambassador challenge for July 2021 is called “Never Too Early”. The idea for this project is to make something for the end of the year. It could be a holiday project – Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. Or it could even just be a winter project.
Makers are always thinking ahead, so this is the perfect time to start a project that will take a while to finish.
Here are all the projects by the Island Batik Ambassadors. Click on the pictures for more information about the projects.

She also made this nice fabric basket.
These beautiful pillows were made by Gail Renna.
This pillow is the same pattern with red and green fabrics.
