TIE DYE SHIRT TUTORIAL SERIES: GEO TRIANGLE PATTERN

TIE DYE SHIRT TUTORIAL SERIES: GEO TRIANGLE PATTERN

Usually Itajime patterns are made with indigo, but I wanted to use it with tie dye colors.  I am using procion dyes (or tie dye) with this traditional Japanese pattern for a cool twist on modern tie dye.  I wanted to go with a earthy color palette- inspired by the forrest or camouflage.  I did a poll on instagram and people voted to call this color palette "Forrest Scape"  I love that name.

MODERN TIE DYE TECHNIQUES TUTORIAL

I've been playing with a lot of tie dye lately.  I wanted to incorporate traditional shibori techniques with modern colors and tie dye.  So i decided to do a kumo shiobori tie and use my arctic waters tie dye kit as the dye.  It's a departure from the usual indigo and it's fun to branch out colorwise.  The kit is available here:

Denim Dress Upcycle Shibori Tutorial

Do you have a piece of clothing or two that you love and have thought about throwing out, but you can't because you love it too much?  This denim dress is a favorite and is past its prime.  It's faded a lot and has some stains on it.  I wanted to give it a new look in hopes that it can have some more life.
