Visit my ETSY shop…
Yesterday was bright and sunny (albeit cold). I decided to ‘play’ with Shibori, a Japanese term for a method of dyeing cloth by binding, stitching, folding, twisting, and compressing. (Here’s a link with a little DIY-Shibori how-to.)
Katie likes purple. I used inexpensive flea market (100 % cotton) shop towels and Rit dye. I thought I’d get a feel for the technique of wrapping, before I used bed linens and indigo!
There’s definitely a learning curve!
No where near perfection, but, oh what fun!!
Matt and Katie came home this past weekend (quite unexpectedly). Needless to say, it was so good to have them home even though I accomplish very little… perhaps it’s a good excuse to just ‘visit’ instead.
I did fiddle with yarn bits and charms, ribbons and buttons. I managed to create a few brooches/pins. Perhaps it will hurry Spring along!
A great stash buster… almost instant gratification!
Year of the sheep (goat).
You never know what those little bits of yarn and ribbon might inspire!
