Continuing on the itajime shibori road

Those scarves came to me with no colour.  Just pure white silk.  I used them to test acid dyes for a baby wrap, the results of which you can still see – the blue, yellow, purple, and magenta are from that era.

And then, having acquired all kinds of wooden blocks from a nearby art and craft supply shop, I decided to fold, tie, and put them in a fibre reactive dye.  And voila, now they look way more sophisticated than before.

I am adding clamps to my wish list.  After all, a girl can’t have enough tools to play with.
