Shibori part 2

And here they are. Numbers 1, 2 and 3 above....
..4, 5 and 6 ...
..7, 8 and 9....
..10, 11, 12.

All different. Some were folded, some were ironed, some were scrunched or bunched. A couple were rolled around dowels. Some are definitely more striking than others, but most I would do again.

These were dyed with Jacquard's Burgundy which has a lovely light brown shadow to it that makes for interesting shapes. You can click on the photos to see them in more detail.

As usual with dyeing, you can't really appreciate the patterns you've made until you're ironing the fabric.

I had so much fun that I'm going back to do some more.

A gal after my own heart! Shibori techniques are my favorite way to create resist patterns, and yours came out wonderful! Thanks for sharing...

Oh, Shirley - these are so refreshing! It must be the color. Love the results but to me, shibori is just too much work. Maybe I'll try again in the warmer weather.
