Frank’s June Shibori Dyeing

Saturday I folded and sewed. I found ironing the folds on the clamped pieces made for more accurate folds.  I also found ironing the straight pleats for sewing made the sewing easier.

Itajime shibori is a shaped-resist technique. Traditionally, the cloth is sandwiched between two pieces of wood, which are held in place with string

Nui shibori includes stitched shibori. A simple running stitch is used on the cloth then pulled tight to gather the cloth

These are my results
