Mornin' all...as promised, here are pics of my most recent dyeing attempt.

After tying 1/2 with string - like a sausage, and 1/2 with marbles wrapped in the fabric and then plastic, this is what two metres of white cotton looks like.


The dye bath beckons, and afterward this...


And the results...







I re-used the dye bath three times, with softer results. The second was the squares, the third the t-shirt.



Magenta, Well done!

Good morning gang...how are you all today?

I was given a 3 metre piece of white 'bamboo-rayon' fabric at school yesterday, and told to prepare it for use, in a dress, by dyeing it. I 'shibori-ed' it!

Firstly, I folded the piece into a square (like my other photo) and clamped it with wood, and dyed it blue. Then I rinsed it and tied it 'sausage-like' (like my other photo) randomly with very tight string. I then dyed it again, but this time red. And voila.....



The edges dye darker because they are more exposed to the dye than the rest of the fabric. That explains the difference in colour near the edges. Even with that I love the result. I will be making the dress in class over the next couple of Fridays - I will post a photo of the dress once finished.

Like Chris

Up here has been a smashing wall-to-wall sunshiney day in a colodless sky. Wind has only been blowing lightly and the car says the outside temperature hit 19C.
