Batik Scraps

This is just a fun scarp of fabric in my collection. It is an African Batik fabric, and I have about 3 yards of mostly edging left. I think it was to commemorate a missionary since there is also a big portrait of a bearded man and symbols of crosses. Maybe he worked with children. I want to use the fabric for something special. Not sure what yet, though I have had this scrap for many years. It was about to be thrown out at a shop I worked in and I rescued it. The girl in the blue dress is in between the two boys as a repeat. The selvage says it was printed in Dakar, which is the capital of Senegal on the west coast of Africa. I have been sewing so many years and have so many scraps. Each one has its own story to tell.
