There we go…. indigo

Indigo dyeing at Morley this week.  rough calico, squashed, tied , stitched and then dipped in to the indigo vat.

Even the wrapping strings and the rubber bands come out beautiful colours.

And my little pleated piece will be very interesting when unfurled.

  1. All lovely! I was just wondering about spreading some fabric paint over my pleats, but have decided to wait until I'm without small children around to join in, as we've already started on two other painting projects today with them....!

  2. That is my favourite shade of blue, sooooooooo scrummy!


Thanks for your comment. I love to read them, but can't always respond.
