Table Scraps with Island Batik

Scraps, are the name of the game this month.
Dressing up our tables, the challenge.

I personally love diving into the scrap bin for projects.
When I'm done it feels like such an accomplishment...
using up those bits and bobs.
I consider it a freebie project, when I don't have to go out and purchase materials.
We all love getting the best bang for our buck, now don't we?
My scrappy topper came from the "Table Talk" book of runners, 
toppers and family treats, by Gudrun Erla. 
It's such a fun book. 

The little trees in this one, make for a perfect holiday table.
I used a variety of Island Batik fabrics,
from Christmas theme to brights and everything in between. 
It shows you, just how well all of the "Island Batik" fabrics play together.
It goes well with the "traditional" colors of Christmas...
...as well as the bright's.
Oh, how I love the versatility!
It's been a wonderful year as an "Island Batik" Ambassador.
I do hope, I've been able to inspire you in our challenges with their fabulous fabrics.
Next month is our "Four Seasons" blog hop. 
We are sharing the new fabrics hitting the shelves next year.
Lots of fun things in store, your not going to want to miss one bit!

Wishing you all...
