experiments with dye: shibori inspired

In preparation for a larger project that I have in mind, I decided to test out some dying with a tutorial I found here.

I tried the "kumo" style within some glass marbles used for vases and rubber bands.

While researching different style of shibori, I cam across some videos on youtube that are really fascinating. They show people from the town of Arashi, Japan tying intricate patterns for fabric that will then be used for yukata and kimono. Really impressive. Be sure to look it up.

Oh wow this takes me back to summers and tie dying. Got to love having a love child for a mother!

Very pretty design!

Yes, that green is a very pretty color, and the bubbles / circles are cute!
