Week 3 Third style of stitching: Parallel lines

Luckily for me, I had a great Shibori workshop with Karla de Ketelaere in Gent in August this year.

Please check this website: http://www.tobasign.com/en/silk-painting/fabric-dyes/home.php
where you will find several tutorials (especially Undye and Undye 2 are very interesting, I will play with that early November at this blog.)

But that's for later. Now we have to continue with the third way of stitching, Parallel lines(which gives better lines as you can see here:

  1. Oh, I love this! Will definitely have to give it a try...

  2. yup...this way of stitching gives much better results than single row stitching!
    Looking forward to seeing your pieces tomorrow.
