It’s time for the Printed Fabric Bee Giveaway!
Susan Purney Mark was the queen bee this past month and she chose Industrial as her topic. I really loved this challenge.
Industrial to me means lots of buildings, so I cut a stencil that looked like steel beams.
Then I used Jacquard Color Magnet with my stencil. Once it was dry I dyed the pieces with Brushed Steel, one of my favorite fiber reactive dye. I love how this color breaks out into it’s colors when it’s scrunched and left alone.
Here is Susan’s piece.
And the 6 x 6 inch piece I made for the giveaway.
And here is the collection.
If you’d love to win this collection, just visit The Printed Fabric Bee or Susan’s blog and leave a comment. Deadline is July 10. Good Luck!
It looks like you are peering into a rock quarry through steel beams.
I love the way it turned out, and love the stencil.
Darlene, A rock quarry? Wow, never thought of that!! Thanks.
Wow — what a great batch of fabrics. It’s been a long time since I’ve done any dyeing/surface design, and I can see I have some catching up to do. For example, I have not clue one what Jacquard Color Magnet is, but I’m gonna check it out, real soon. Like as soon as I’m done with this comment. b/
Hi Brenda, Just put Color Magnet in my search box and you’ll see several posts I’ve written on this great product. I absolutely love, love, love it! It’s like getting two for one – two tones for one color. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Let me know if you decide to play with Color Magnet.
Lynda, You’ve done it again! It’s perfect for the challenge, love it!
