Do What You Love fabric by Jeni Paltiel

Hey! I made it to the semi-finals in this year’s Fabric8 contest, with the theme “Geek Chic.” My design is one of 100 semi-finalists (narrowed down from over 750 entries) chosen by a team of industry professionals from Robert Kaufman and Spoonflower to go up for public voting. I thought long and hard about what “geek chic” meant, and I decided that the essence of geekdom is being passionate about something, whether it’s superheroes or knitting or science fiction or typography, so my design is titled “Do What You <3 What You Do” and features hearts with simple symbols in them for all sorts of things people geek out on.
