It is a new week! Hope everyone had a great weekend and are ready to be back to Monday again.
So recently I learned a little something about Japanese Shibori dyeing. (Thanks Corinne!)
I decided to do a little dying the other day.
In shibori dyeing you fold in a regular pattern, and depending how you fold, depends what pattern you make on the fabric. I tried lots of different folds and twists and all kinds of things.
I tried this SEI spray dye this time. I liked the colors, but I had to work around the spray because it didn't get absorbed as deeply into the fabric as dye in a cup or bucket.
I LOVE these colors. Wish the fabric would stay as dark once it dried.
Here's my clothesline which I dried my fabric pieces on! Ha-ha- and it worked great.
And here's some of favorite pieces.
This one looks a little more like tie-dye.
I cheated with this piece. I sprayed other colors on it as it had way too much white.
Now I just need to set up my sewing machine (now that I made some space in my daughter's old room) and do some sewing.'It was a lot of fun, and I bought myself some indigo dye to try it again. Traditional shibori technique uses this type of dye.
Will let you know how that works out.
Have a great Monday everyone, and thanks for stopping by!
