More stitched shibori

Just a couple more stitched shibori samples.

This one was plain running stitch on a piece of cotton/linen fabric that had previously been dyed mid-blue with indigo:

Then I tried combining stitch and ombre, using a Japanese larch pattern on cotton. This was a bit tricky because once the stitching is all drawn up, it’s difficult to judge the gradation of the ombre.

Also, the stitching contrast works best against a darker background (of course). But one of the other students said that she likes the way the pattern disappears due to the ombre.

Back to college tomorrow – will have to start thinking about what to do for the exhibition in July!
