TIE DYE SHIRT TUTORIAL SERIES: CRISS CROSS PATTERN

I love this tie dye pattern- it's very cool looking but is very easy to get.  This pattern was made with folding and rubber bands.  The criss cross pattern looks good in multiple colors or single colors too.  I've used dark blue teal, light blue, and a coral for this pattern. 

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.

Easy Shibori Tutorial- With Paint Sticks

One of my favorite things to do with shibori is to use things I have around the house.  I have a lot of paint sticks from projects past.  This pattern is so much fun!  I love the way it makes a jagged abstract stripe down the middle.  I made this pillow from a linen- I absolutely love working with linen because it takes the dye so so beautifully!!

Fourth of July Tie Dye Tutorial

I wanted to try something fun and festive for the Fourth of July this year.  I was inspired by people in my online shibori classes, being resourceful when they couldn't get their hands on indigo.  They would buy Rit Dye or tie dye kits!  The Shibori folding techniques can be applied to tie dye and you can have a lot of fun mixing the colors!
