I forgot to include this snow dyed piece in my post last week. It is a lightweight cotton that was light olive in colour before it was dyed. The Nui shibori designs were made by stitching circles and diamonds.
My second day of snow dyeing resulted in more unique fabrics. The colours I used were similar but I used a less concentrated solution of dye. The result is more of the white background showing.
I also dyed two pieces of cotton canvas that I will use to make a tote bag. I folded the canvas as I did the PFD (prepared for dyeing) cotton that resulted in the mandala shape.
The canvas, of course is a much heavier fabric, so the design is not as detailed. as in the other fabrics. I look forward to seeing these two pieces sewn up.
My most favorite piece in this batch of snow dyeing is the honeycomb design that resulted below.
It’s snowing again and I’ve already prepared three more pieces of cotton. They are folded in wedge shapes and are covered with freshly fallen snow, yellow, turquoise and navy blue dyes. I can’t believe that I am happy to see the snow falling!
