Into More Blue

I'm continuing to explore whatever idea pops into my head to use with indigo. Here I combined itajime with arashi shibori. This part turned out well, but the patterning didn't go through the entire fabric.

And why not do a few stars, varying the values of the indigo.

As soon as I saw this linen in my stash of fabrics, I knew it was destined for a dip or two, being the year of the dragon.

And this is for our class assignment this week - a larger shibori piece. Getting the patterning to go all the way through is a challenge and I thought this would turn out darker than it did. I think it looks like eggs cracking open and flowers - both fit right into the start of spring.

I am going to do another post because I made some good discoveries today.
