SHIBORI BABY ONESIES 2

I made these baby onesies for my cousins who have new babies.  I come from a big family so there are lots of opportunities for me to make new styles of baby onesies. I tried something different and dyed a light blue onesie.  I think it turned out really cute!

JACQUARD CYANOTYPE KIT UNBOXING

I have been doing my research and my jacquard cyanotype kit is here. It's a chemical process that involves mixing two chemicals together and then letting them be exposed to the sun. This video goes over the instructions and my initial reaction to opening the product. I'm a big fan of jacquard products in general and I'm so excited to get to do some cyanotype.

Natural Dyeing with Yellow Onion Skins Tutorial

I decided to venture into the world of natural dyeing!  I am starting with natural onion dyeing because it's easy and only called for a salt solution.  Most dyeing calls for chemicals, but there are ways to get natural colors without the chemicals. Onion skin dyeing is one of the easiest types of natural dyeing.

HANDMADE PILLOWS FROM VINTAGE EMBROIDERED HUIPILES

I was gifted a number of vintage huipiles that were brought back from Guatemala.  They were incredibly beautiful and were covered with hand embroidery.  They were very old so some parts of them were very worn out.  So I decided to "upcycle" them and piece together the most fantastic parts of embroidery to make a pillow.

indigo tie dye easy pattern- pole wrapped fabric dyeing

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.
