You don’t have to sew to play with indigo at my Indigo 101 class. The next one in coming right up on Sunday September 13th from 1 – 4 at Paradigm Gardens. You can call them at 608/242-3800 to register. It’s $85 or $80 if you sign up with a friend.
I serge all of the fabric for my classes. It’s a bit time consuming but I realize that not everyone who wants to play with dye, wants to sew.
I give students six Fat Quarters each and we learn at least six patterns. Fat quarters are used in sewing quite a bit, they are basically a quarter of a yard of fabric. They are 18 X 22 inches in size. Awesome for quilting or making into little projects.
They also make fabulous and generous napkins or small but useful furoshiki wrapping clothes.
Furoshiki clothes a a whole ‘nother rabbit hole to fall into but also way fun to play with.
Yes, Dye Day with an exclamation point! Because the day was super fun. I’ve been prepping fabric for a little while now and was planning to dye them on Thursday (today) but I had a meeting and drank so much coffee. When I got home, dyeing the fabric RIGHT NOW was the only thing that made sense.
I did some random test fabrics just for fun and practice. They didn’t all work. The one on the left is a total mess. It’s still pretty though.
I also bought pretty much every white shirt made with natural fibers that were about my size at Goodwill the other day. Those were really fun to play with.
I’m especially pleased with this one. It looks super awesome.
I’m a little concerned with the placement of the blue here. I may have made some shiboobie instead of shibori. I think I’ll overdye this with another pattern.
More tests just for fun. Plus a bonus background chicken.
And a set of a dozen napkins. There are only 11 because of the mess in the first picture. That’s ok. I love learning how to do things and I can always make more. In fact, I ordered two dozen more yesterday.
