Shibori Folding - no 10

 Now for a Mandala fold, take a square piece of fabric, fold it in quarts and further in eights:

Try to fold the remaining part into its place between the outer eights.

Found this at the hardware store, it's an opener for paint cans, but I have my own plans with it.

In the mean time I am also experimenting with different types of fabric, this is a 80% cotton, 20% polyester blend with an 'open' weave, which makes it easier for dyes to penetrate into the inner layers.
