Shibori patterns

These are the results of the shibori dyeing (we didn't use an indigo vat as you traditionally should but used Procion dye). You should be able to see which patterns have arisen from sewn techniques.


I really like this effect above.



Unfortunately the dye didn't penetrate to the middle of this fabric but there are some interesting marks where it did reach.



This piece was stitched but I prefer the area at the top where the stitches were spaced further apart.



I love this piece.

These are really good. I like all of them and would happily give them a good and loving home! The drain pipe piece is fantastic! What a lovely effect. What are you going to do with them?

Wow!!! You got some lovely results here , Julie. I love the marks in the middle one, they look like dragonflies with their wings folded.

These are gorgeous Julie. Have you seen the work of Australian textile artist India Flint, she has a book out called Eco colour, it has some wonderful images showing her leaf printed fabric and use of natural dyes.
