DIAMOND SHIBORI TIE DYE PATTERN TUTORIAL

DIAMOND SHIBORI TIE DYE PATTERN TUTORIAL

This diamond pattern is really very simple to make with shibori folding techniques and an indigo vat.  I folded into the quarters and then accordion style on the diagonal.  Check out the video for the visuals.  I tied them up with paint sticks and string.  Then I dipped them in my indigo vat.  I'm using pre reduced indigo.  I have a kit available on my site for sale Indigo Kit

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:

SEMI CIRCLE TIE DYE SHIBORI TSHIRT UPCYCLE

One of my favorite things to do with dyeing is to upcycle clothes that are stained or a little worn.  Dyeing them brings new life and makes them look new.  I did a semi circle pattern for this one and it turned out really great.

Pole Wrap Shibori- Arashi Variation

This pattern is really fun and very organic.  This is a take on Arashi Shibori.  Usually Arashi is a lot more neat and tidy, but I went with a more imperfect wrap.  This pattern reminds me of a geode or agate.
