Shibori Indigo Dyed Bag

shib bag 6

Here is one of the projects that I made last year.

For many years I have wanted to have a go at Indigo dying. It always sounded as if might be a bit messy so I thought I needed time and space to concentrate.

I like to plan my project before I start tying my shibori. I had a remnant of linen mix fabric which I marked and then tied.
