Such a sweet effect made with a simple wrap and tie technique.
Shibori is turning into a total obsession with me lately. There are so many techniques like wrapping, folding, stitching, clamping, etc which all result in a plethora of lovely effects.
OK, here's the wrap technique...
Start with your prewashed cotton scarf and lay the PVC pipe lengthwise on top. You can use a little tape to temporarily keep it in place.
Tie the scarf onto the pipe end with the twine. You can knot the end of the twine to keep it secure.
Wrap the twine around pipe and scarf every 1/2" for about 4".
Mix 1 1/2 boxes of RIT dye (I used one of my faves, fuchsia) with 4 cups of very hot water from the kettle.
Remove the pipe from the soaking bucket. Fill the bucket with enough hot water to cover the project, add your dye solution and stir.
