Island Batik Ambassador Unboxing – January 2021

In an earlier blog post I announced that I was one of 24 Island Batik Ambassadors for 2021 and that I would be presenting a video showing all of the wonderful products I received. Well that time has come, and I’m excited to say that my Island Batik Ambassador unboxing video is now up on my YouTube channel.

Disclosure: The products in this post were provided by Island Batik.

Wait until you see all of the gorgeous batiks I received, and that I have already started working with (see my January placemats pattern). In addition, there were lots of other goodies from our generous sponsors. Like I said in my video, (way too many times) I was overwhelmed and super excited.

As an Island Batik ambassador, we receive two deliveries of products a year. With them, we make a challenge project each month. I have all kinds of ideas and patterns swirling around in my head that I am looking forward to sharing with you all.

So without further ado, here is my unboxing video for January 2021. I have also provided plenty of photos of the eye candy below. Just look at all of those beautiful fabrics. Enjoy!

Island Batik Fabric

There were yards and yards of beautiful batiks.

From left to right, from the neutrals line – Coconut, and three solids, gray, black and white.

Lots of lovely colors too…

Here’s a better look at all of those beautiful blues!

Precuts too…

On the left are precuts of the Citrus Sun line and on the right is Harvest Blue. Both are designed by Kathy Engle. The larger cuts of green on the left are from the basics line and include Seedling and Pinecone. The large pieces of blue fabric are from the basics line – Rain, and the blenders line – Cherio – Navy.

Last, but certainly not least…

On the left are some stash builder packs and on the right is a piece of rayon.

It wasn’t all about fabric in the boxes. We were given lots goodies from generous sponsors too.

    Great video! I laughed when you said you’d use the strip that wrapped some of your fabrics together–I’ve used at least one of those in my past projects, too! 🙂
