Shibori in Blue Violet

I enjoyed doing the burgundy shibori so much that I did a couple more half-metre pieces in the evening, in ProChem's Blue Violet, which has lovely pinkish undertones. The piece on the left was accordian folded along the short side, then spiralled; while the one on the right was accorian folded along the long edge, with the pleats changing direction in the middle and creating the pretty webbed area - you may need to ckick on the photos to enlarge them to see this more clearly.

Now, what shall I dye today?

These turned out wonderfully well! worth all the time and effort, certainly. the folded wrapped pieces looked like little mummies.
