Printed Fabric Bee: Insects

It’s time for another Printed Fabric Bee giveaway!

July’s The Printed Fabric Bee challenge topic was Insects. Jane Davila the queen bee, requested that the 12 x 12 piece could be any color but with a touch of black.

Before I show you the collection that will be given away, here is my piece and my process.


I started with a piece of my sun printed fabric that had black in it.


I then decided on a dragonfly. After finding a good image I cut a stencil out with my Portrait.


I then mixed ProFab Purple and Magenta fabric paint to get the color I wanted for the dragonfly and stenciled him onto the piece.


He looked too plain so I added some shadow with my Fabricmate marker in a purple – close to the color of the paint.


Here is the final piece again.


And a couple closeups.


Here is my 6 x 6 for the giveaway collection.
