Shibori: A Beginner's Guide to Creating Color & Texture on Fabric

Front Cover
Lark Books, 2006 - Crafts & Hobbies - 127 pages
Shibori--or Japanese tie-dye--is a patterned three-dimensional form created by a unique process of folding, crumpling, stitching, plaiting, plucking, and twisting material. The result is gorgeous, soft-edged patterns that will delight sewers and fabric lovers alike. This appealing, modern take on a traditional art takes the intimidation out of a versatile craft and allows anyone to create beautiful items. Each chapter focuses on a specific method, from arashi (pole-wrapping) to bound resist, from stitching and gathering to using bleach to remove color. Eighteen exquisite projects include purses, napkins, silk scarves, and more. Includes detailed photos and easy-to-follow instructions throughout.
