The Printed Fabric Bee: Orange Circles
I'm very happy to be a part of The Printed Fabric Bee.
Our first Queen Bee, Lynn Krawczyk from Smudged Textile Studios, issued the challenge for each member to create a piece of fabric with the theme: Orange Circles.
I started the piece by silk screening Jacquard orange textile paint onto cotton pfd fabric. . .
. . . and then over dyeing the piece dutch chocolate brown.
I felt it needed more so I created a new resist of circles using glue on a silk screen and overprinted a couple times with a few mixed oranges and came up with this piece:
One person said it looked like roses, and I agree, but I also think it looks like lots of coffee cup rings, which is very appropriate for my coffee
addicted loving friend, Lynn.
AND NOW for the most EXCITING PART
of The Printed Fabric Bee. . .
Each member of The Bee made an extra 6" piece of fabric to be given away!
That is right
could receive this packet of fabrics
to pet and use!
to enter your name in the giveaway.
The winner of this special packet of hand designed fabrics
will be announced on November 11th.
