It's time, once again, for another Printed Fabric Bee Challenge and Giveaway! This month the Queen Bee was Leslie Tucker Jenison. Leslie requested that we print fabric "making marks with found objects". She wanted neutrals with a "pop" of color...though I think I ended up doing color with a "pop" of neutrals! This fabric design was inspired by one of the fabrics I made for the Fabric Printing at Home Scavenger Hunt.
Here's how I made my fabric...
The first layer was printed with a block made by gluing lentils to a piece of cardboard.
For the second layer, I decided to use a plastic takeout coffee top.
For the third and forth layers, I used two of my very favorite "found" objects...a milk bottle top and a "C" battery!
I thought I was finished, but then realized that the fabric needed something more. So I printed with the edge of a business card and then a piece of corrugated cardboard. I really like how that came out and plan to use that idea again. Sorry, I forgot to take photos of this step!
Here is Leslie's final fabric.
And here is the 6" square you can win by leaving a comment on either The Printed Fabric Bee blog or The Printed Fabric Bee Facebook page under the photo of the collection.
Leslie will announce a winner on June 15. Good luck!!
