First try at Shibori

It was a hard week at work. Long days, deadlines, new projects, and with a head cold. Bahhhh. I kept thinking to myself, "I just want to dye". LOL. I planned on trying Shibori this weekend... and that was the dyeing I wanted to do.Here is my first attempt.
I used a heavy muslin, I think a medium weight would give me results with more dye seeping thru.
I folded the fabric, then folded again in accordion triangles, tied it together firmly, then dyed.

I'm seeing this maybe as a quilted table runner.
I'm seeing more tries at Shibori...

What a neat effect! All kinds of possibilities with this. I'm not brave enough to try dying anything and will admire yours from afar :)

This looks fun and complicated! I have some fabric coming for dyeing. I thought I might try it for fun. Love the mug rugs, they're my size :)
