I love being an Island Batik Ambassador. Twice a year we Ambassadors receive a box of fabric to create with. The last Ambassador box had a gift of 2 yards of batik rayon. Mine was a deep blue and was beautiful! I haven't sewn clothes for years and never any clothing with rayon, so this was a new experience. I love batiks, so was super excited to make something I could proudly wear! I knew right away I wanted some kind of an open shirt/jacket and found a pattern I really liked. I did have to do some alterations, but I am happy with how it turned out and look forward to wearing this many times.
I do need to mention that I did pre wash this fabric several times. This is a deep blue print and had a lot of dye in it. So be aware and pre wash before cutting your rayon fabrics.

These little pouches went together quickly and they turned out well. I hope you can have fun with some small gift projects. They are fun and a great way to use up some of those lovely leftover fabrics.
