Dinners to dye for…

dyeing play day: Shibori

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!
