NEWLY DYED TEXTILES

May 28, 2015

 

Textiles that were dyed this week are in the shop (or will be soon).

Stripe: this was a beast to dye, 4 foot planks for compression and a bucket that just wasn’t deep enough…lots of hand brushing and rotating had to happen. Also, I didn’t have a plexi glass piece that tall so I had to use wood and the tannin left a faint yellow hue to the base. Not too noticeable, but it’s all part of the learning process!2

Snowflakes: this 66″ long piece of fabric turned out to be a pretty thick triangle bundle. It was compressed between triangle blocks and fully submerged in the vat.

4

Diamonds: I tried a totally new technique with this piece. After clamping between triangle blocks, I only dipped the edges into the vat (6 dips with 25 minute oxidation in-between). I like how clean this one turned out.

6

Circles: This piece was essentially one big triangle before getting compressed between 2 pieces of circle plexi glass.

I am calling this one scarabs, because the shape reminds me of one. This was completely accidental. I mean…I was trying to make zig zags (i know, right?) but I was pleasantly amazed. This is the number one reason I love tie-dying, the element of surprise!

NEW SHIBORI CLOTHS

April 29, 2015

 

I just finished some oversized Shibori cloths and posted them in the shop. They are made from flour sack cotton and they are super versatile. I made a couple extra for myself and I have been wearing one daily as a lightweight scarf and using the other one as a dishtowel. They measure 31″ x 31″ and can also be used as furoshiki. Have you seen how many different ways you can tie cloths like this? This video blows my mind.

PILLOWCASE PROCESS

April 10, 2015

 

Here are some photos from the process of making the tiny burst pillowcase. This process is so meditative… pinch, apply rubber band, pinch, apply rubber band, pinch…

NOW IN THE SHOP

SOCKS

March 28, 2015

 

When I am dyeing, I usually ask whoever is around if they want me to dye anything for them (stained shoes, old sweatshirts, bandanas, etc.), so last week I was joking and asked if anyone wanted their old socks dyed, BUT not a bad idea. I would definitely wear some Indigo dyed socks! I started experimenting (with some fresh socks) and I really like the result. These little guys will be headed into the shop this weekend.

AWAY THEY GO

March 24, 2015

 

Saying goodbye to these pillowcases today, as they are off to their new homes in Colorado and Arizona. I am so appreciative for the support of the people who frequent my shop. It means the world to me.

DOUBLE DYED

March 11, 2015

 

I have always loved monochromatic colors, which lead me to experiment with dyeing fabric in multiple dye baths. I love the subtleness of the tones.

INDIGO DYED BEDDING-PART 2

March 5, 2015

 

 

I just completed a new batch of pillowcases that will be added to the shop this week. For the first time Queen & King sizes will be available.

With the exception of the last 2 styles, all were created by resistance Indigo dyeing using wooden blocks & clamps.

INDIGO DYED BEDDING

February 21, 2015

Lately, I have been incorporating Indigo into my bedding. I love the pop of color it gives against the white duvet and sheets. A couple of the below pillow cases sold, but I plan to make a new batch next week.

SHOP UPDATE

January 30, 2015

I’ve just listed some exciting new Shibori cotton napkins in the shop.

Most of them are sold individually as well as in the mixed set. I’m especially happy with how the double dyed set came out! This is the first time I have done this technique and I really like the muted pale blue result (3rd image down).

DESERT DYEING

December 7, 2014

I spent last week in the Chihuahuan Desert (far west Texas), which ended up being an ideal backdrop for this new batch of textiles. I’m so happy with how the color pops off the desert floor.

I am still working on posting everything, but some are now available in the shop.
