indigo tie dye shibori for beginners

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!!

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:
