Itajime Revisited

Having the time of my life playing around with Itajime, which is the Japanese technique
 for creating patterns on fabric through folding, clamping, and /or binding it followed by dyeing.

This piece was previously dyed. I accordion folded it,

 then folded it another way tying rubber bands to secure the folds.

Then squeezed darker colored dyes into it.

Below is another piece accordion folded and secured, ready for dyeing.

Below is a picture of the three pieces with the dye applied and in the batching stage.

 And here are the other two finished pieces.
