Shibori dyeing

I've had fun with this technique this week. I don't like to use any more dye than I need so I cut the top off a plastic drinks bottle to put the dye in. The wrapped pole fitted perfectly.

 Here's the pole before it went in.

 I did two pieces. The first was folded in four then wrapped and tied.

And the second was concertina folded in three, then in half, then wrapped and tied.

And some close ups.

I'm really pleased with these. Can't wait to sew with them.
