Shibori: Indigo Dyeing

I bought different types of white fabric at Fabric Warehouse the other week, and invited my sister Frances and our nephew Mawsy to come over the studio and have a mini shibori backyard party with me!

We used a whole pack of Jacquard Shibori kit to dye linen, muslin, voile, and swiss cotton sheets. It took us just a few minutes to set up the indigo vat. We had fun experimenting with rubberbands, wood blocks, a wine bottle, and other found objects to come up with shibori patterns like itajime, arashi, and kumo

The weirder they looked before they were soaked in the indigo vat, the better the patterns were! :p

There are so many other shibori patterns, and you can even make your own! Next on my list are hand-sewn shibori purses I can give out to friends as Christmas gifts! :)
