Shibori part one!

A scarf and a t-shirt started out like this:

and one got dyed lime green:

then I started to unwrap it:

and then it was this!

I ended up not dyeing the t-shirt that day because I discovered that the black thread left black lines on the silk of the scarf.

It ended up looking kind of cool and veiny, so I don’t feel too bad about the scarf, but I did take the shirt apart and re-tie it with some white thread.

The scarf is willow pattern (yanagi shibori), although mine always turns out so white because I tie it so tight.

I did some more great stuff this weekend at home in Memphis, and will post pics as soon as my sister sends them to me!
