Last of Charlene's Shibori
Here are the last pictures of Charlene's shibori. Alas, on Monday I have to give them all back to her. She counted them before she loaned them to me so I can't even "forget" one or two of them. They are in no particular order other than my favorite is first.
This is a fold and stitch resist method named Ori-nui. Charlene says when it is done right it will look like a row of teeth.
This is another stitch resist method. On this one Charlene used a pleater to gather the fabric evenly before dyeing it.
I should have shown you this one yesterday when I showed you the other chevron piece. This one has a tag that says to iron 1" pleats all in the same direction before wrapping.
A nice example of fold and clamp.
Last, this piece shows multiple techniques. The background is a potatoe dextrine resist. The white is a stitch and gather technique. The piece is large enough that when I was a little chilly in my office this last week, I wore it as a shawl. Looked good on me!
