The Printed Fabric Bee Fabric Giveaway: Typography

Lisa Chin was the Queen Bee this month. As Queen she decreed that the Hive design fabrics with a typography theme.

I decided to work with a simple XOXOXOXO (or Hugs and Kisses) design.

After painting the fabric Lisa's favorite color turquoise, I added a bit of background texture by stenciling through a doily with white paint.

I drew my XOXOXOXO design with hot glue on corrugated cardboard.

I slipped this block under the fabric and rolled over it with a blue-grey paint (texture rubbing).

To add a bit of whimsy and contrasting color I drew small red hearts in the Os with a permanent marker.

Here is the final fabric.

And here is the 6" fabric square that you can win as part of The Printed Fabric Bee fabric giveaway this month.

Here is the collection of 9 fabrics created by The Bee that a lucky winner will receive. All you have to do to be eligible is to leave a comment on either The Printed Fabric Bee Blog or Lisa Chin's blog. The winner will be announced on Friday, June 13. Good luck!!


  1. Really beautiful. I love your technique for making the XO design. I'll have to try that!
