I did wonder, but assumed it was a variation on the traditional design.

I love the brown batiks @rubywishes , where did you get them? @Iminei pointed them out to me for a barn owl pattern I want to make.  I have looked at some but couldn't find the same. I wondered if you bought them as a bundle or made them up individualy.   :vintage:

I bought a couple of bundles of batiks from Craftsy when they had a sale.  Even with the shipping to the UK they were still good value.

Doughtys is, of course, the place for batiks, and they do sell them by FQ online as well as by the metre.
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

Me too. And yes really. If you put in a decent order it's definitely worth while even with the postage.  :)

Yes - I think I paid £12 postage, and I bought 3 packs of FQs (one batik) and a pack of batik 10 inch squares, all of which were half price.  They even threw in a free pack of small squares.

Thanks @Pearl I will take a look, I bought some batik from Doughty's when they came to a local church last year, not in the colours I want now though.   :vintage:

@Lilian I bought them at the local P&Q which has a large selection of quality batiks. Not much help to you, sorry but I am looking forward to your barn owl...I've been following your thread and am keen to see it come together  :)
