Shibori dyeing day

May 18, 2017

A playday with two friends, using Procion MX cold water dyes produced many delights for each of us.  Here are two that came from my folding and twisting.

A very relaxing activity combining yarns, threads & beads produced this delightful necklace for a very special little girl.

By creating a mini “loom” made on cardboard I was able to weave a background of textural soft pinky / mauve colours.

Sparkles from my bead collection were then sewn on … and voila, this necklace became ready to wear.


A “Maureen” scarf.

Blue & mauve link so beautifully together on pure silk with it’s sheen.

Looking at the various meanings of the name Maureen, using my best handwriting,  this scarf showcases the personality and personal characteristics that I feel are connectd to the name, Maureen.

Using wax and cold water dyes with both my tjap and tjanting this piece of handmade work creates visual happiness.

Silk and eucalyptus.

I dyed this pure silk scarf to showcase the wonder of nature.  Incorporating hues from eucalypts  especially grown for this purpose in my garden, strong visual texture has made  for a soft but  crunchy interplay.
