Shibori Style

When not pre occupied with a pretty serious personal problem and pretty serious midterms (MIDTERMS!!!) coming up, I’m thinking about shibori. I want to do something really special with the pieces I have. I looked to Pinterest for inspiration and it didn’t fail me.

While I don’t have large enough pieces to replicate any of these stunning projects, looking at them gets my juices flowing. Perhaps in the future I can shibori with chemical dyes and have a go at one of them, then!! I might even give felted knits a chance if I can produce a scarf like the one above! I have two small meet-ups and two kid school activities coming up in the next several days, so I don’t know when/if I’ll have time to work on anything, but I hope I will soon!!

  1. OH! Nettie you bad girl, now I’m going to get sidetracked into making shibori BCT’s! That last kimono is just stunning. Both of them. Just wow. You’re making me want to get back into dyeing, just a bit.

    Can’t wait, can’t wait to see what you make.

    I hope life isn’t too hard. At least there’s always the fabric.

      • Isn’t it amazing how much other stuff you get done when you have schoolwork to do? I used to find myself cleaning out my closet, scrubbing the floor, doing my brows… I’m never more productive when I have a looming deadline! Ha!

  2. nice! I have been following StephC for a while and she turned me on to your blog.
    I am so glad. I really enjoy seeing what you are up to, and now you have inspired me to give this try at some point in the vague future. At least i remember where to come back and look again when I get in the mood. Too many projects on all 4 burners right now, that’s for sure!

  3. I love the first Shibori dye photo! And I think that many vintage and thrift stores around the city would have a chambray (it looks like it’s chambray?) sack dresses like that.
