I spent two days of the long weekend dyeing a variety of cloth with Indigo. These are just three of about 30 pieces I dyed.
This cotton square was first wrapped around an empty plastic serving thread spool, held with an elastic band and wrapped with thread.
When first unwrapped, it has a very sculptural quality. This will flatten out when it is washed and pressed.
This cotton square was gathered on the diagonal and wrapped with long thin strips of fabric.
I like to wrap the strips so that there is a little space for the dye to seep in. This creates some lovely lines.
This cotton/linen rectangle was folded into thirds and triangles stitched across. There are three rows of stitching in each one.
Once unwrapped rows of squares appear in three rows.
There are heaps of washing and ironing in my future!
