I made this guy for a fellow crafter whose daughter loves Dib from Invader Zim.  I batiked him with two rounds of hot glue and two rounds of blue/green dye then added the patchwork border.  I really like how he came out.  I find this technique is hit of miss, so I'm pretty excited when it works out this well!

Ha!  This is awesome!  And I never would have thought of hot glue.  That's brilliant!

Thanks Aislynn! The hot glue is hit or miss.  I find it really depends on the type of fabric you are gluing to, how much dye is used, and how the dye is applied.  I've gotten my best results with a thick cotton fabric, watered down dye and paintbrush application.  I really want to try teachart's gel glue batik.  I think it might be more consistent.
