Indigo velvet Shibori

This silk velvet is one of the pieces I dyed in the Indigo workshop I took in the spring at the Colour Vie Studio with Pam Woodward. I had purchased a one yard piece of silk velvet and was saving it for just the right project. On the second day of the workshop I brought it in.

The silk velvet absorbed the indigo beautifully. The piece is a rich, deep blue. I love this piece – it is gorgeous.

My idea is to make a beautiful shawl, with a contrasting lining. I still have to find the right fabric for the lining. When I do, I am thinking of dyeing it a luscious fuschia. What colour would you choose?
