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!

Cool batik, and your border suits it well too.

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.
