Here are some new dyed fabrics and a shirt I made
with a fun group of women, part of the Sew Whatz group, in the studio barn on Saturday.
This is a T-Shirt I over-dyed using the Arashi Shibori technique. It had been previously ice-dyed but needed another layer of pattern to tie it all together into a more cohesive design.
This is an example of the honeycomb technique.
To learn more about that technique, see my post previous to this one.
I like the water-like texture in these honeycomb pieces.
I used hexagon shaped tiles to create this clamped resist piece shown above.
I think it resembles glowing bugs with long antennae and legs.
Above is an example of stitched resist know as Komasu Shibori.
The one above is folded just like the stitched one above it,
but you use only rubber bands
to create the patterns. I like it quite a bit and it's easier.
For the one above I used two balsa wood cut outs of a maple leaf I bought at Michaels, clamped together with fabric in-between them.
The piece above was accordion folded and held together with rubber bands.
It's done on linen.
