Shibori Tie Dye

Earlier this summer my friend Dorothy hosted a crafty gathering at her house. We tried Shibori, a Japanese tie-dying technique where the fabric is sewed and cinched before dying.

I found a cheap, cotton shower curtain at the Salvation Army and cut it up into pieces and stitched random lines.

The dye seeped more than I intended which is probably due to not tying it tight enough, but it was still a fun project.

I later sewed the fabric into a tote bag as part of a gift for my mom’s birthday.
