Better Late Then Never (I hope)
“Happy Valentine’s Day”
I did not post any Shibori in January so thought I would show what I did.
The first piece is Charmeuse Silk wound on a rope and scrunched and dyed.
I thought it looked like fish, so painted some on.
The next piece of Shibori is done by folding fabic in half and sewing by hand half circles at the fold and getting bigger and bigger. Each round starts with a knot. The end is left long and cut. At the end, you pull all stings tight and tie off. Dye. One section did not turn out the same as the rest????
Now for the batik by stamping waxed items on fabric, dyeing, and ironing out.
