Shibori Sunday

Worked on some Spiderweb Shibori today. For this piece, I started with a white piece of fabric, then tied it off. First I dipped the tied tips into some blue, then dyed the whole piece black.

This piece was one I dyed a few months ago (mixed soda ash with dry dye powder--purple & green, then sprinkled it onto the fabric). I wasn't thrilled with how it turned out, so today I tied a bunch of circles into it, then dyed in a cobalt blue dye bath:

And here's a composite of my dyeing day--


  1. Looks like it was a winning weekend! I love the cobalt - my colors.

  2. Your blues are heavenly. It must be a wonderful delight to try something and come up with such great results.
