Designs made with shibori stitches and dye.

These look like dandelion flowers, which are just beginning to bloom here.

After dyeing yellow silk in Yellow Onion Skins and removing the threads sewn in to create a pattern, this is what I have!  The fabric is still well, so the color is very rich.  You will have to see yesterday’s post below to view the early stages of this project and how I got these designs.  If you click on the photo, you will see an amazing close-up and even the holes from the stitching.

After dyeing, the shibori stitches were pulled out.

Because I did the stitching on the fold of the cloth, this is what it looked like when the stitches were first removed, and before I open it flat in the first photo.  The yellow was gotten by dyeing with Goldenrod flowers several years ago.
