Description

I’ve been to a Unique Stitching’s fabric dyeing workshop during the Brisbane Quilt and Craft Fair and I got inspired by the new craft that I was introduced to.

I’ve bought 3 white shirt at cheap price and decided to have a play during the weekend.

First photo is tie-dyed.
Second one uses jar-dyeing technique (I regret too much that I put in some blue into that jar).
Third is shibori using stitch resist technique.
4th photo is the scarf that I dyed during the workshop.

    They all turned out great and I especially like the third one, how pretty! And the blue on the second one looks really good. How did you do the shibori method? It looks very interesting.

      Thank you for the nice comment. I first read about Shibori in the BurdaStyle website, but after going to the craft fair, I browsed through the web for more info. The patterns are done by stitching the pattern and then I pulled the thread to gather and closed in on the pattern so the dye won’t seep through it.
