Shibori Success.

It's pouring rain and while it certainly wasn't drying weather, I still had to play.
I rooted through all the dyes my husband had bought several years ago and found a navy.

So I decided to try the shibori style again.
Its wasn't the only thing I tried but it certainly is the only one worth posting. As Hubby says anything useless can be over dyed.

Quite a sequence with dying. Mixing the dye, adding the cloth, waiting, adding the soda ash, waiting, rinsing pre drying, washing with synthropol and a final ironing.
Not to be undertaken lightly.

Wrong!
Lost of fun. Rules are made to be broken and sometimes the results are great.
This piece I am very happy with.


But I still may overdye!
