Pleater Board for Shibori

Here is a site that gives you instructions for making a pleater board to make pleats for dyeing. Remember a couple of Charlene's pieces were pleated before wrapping and dyeing.  I also have some gorgeous silk ribbon that was pleated then dyed by Shibori Girl.  Anyway, sounds like a lot of work (not tried it) but once it is made, you can use and reuse and re-reuse it.

  1. You can get an inexpensive pleater board from Clotilde (sewing site). Much easier than doing all of this! :)
