I have hardly done anything at all over my holidays – except lie on the couch and watch Jane The Virgin and Upper Middle Bogan (highly recommend both these fine productions) – and have nanna naps in the afternoons.
But today I got off my bed-sorey butt and tried Japanese tie-dyeing. I am trying to create a new range of scarves and, although I dyed on to cotton voile today, my plan is to use silk in the future with a selection of both red and indigo designs. What do you think? Beautiful!
Whether a mixture of blue on white printing, white stitching on idigo, blue stitching on white or Japanese Shibori tie-dye, I cannot help but love these bold designs. Timeless, sophisticated and graphic – I want to start sewing.
All images are from Pinterest, where I searched “Japanese” and “Indigo”.
