I was just digging through last year’s Deep Into Indigo Retreat photos. Lots of pictures here. We had such an awesome time!! June is almost here and it time to sign up for 2017!
I made this a few years ago. It’s inspired by Korean pogaji wrapping clothes. Which are hand stitched out of scraps of fabric. Mine isn’t hand stitched. I used french seams to stitch together linen that I took from thrifted clothes. You can see my first ever attempt at dyeing in that blotchy orange. Then I made into a curtain.
It’s on my garage door, which I see now is very dusty. I remember making it as a super enjoyable experience. I LOVE ironing linen almost as much as it loves being ironed. You need super high heat and a very steamy iron. It’s extremely satisfying.
I plan on re-making it in shades of blue. I have another naked window in my kitchen that needs one, too. They’re on my “to do one day when I have nothing better to do” list.
Then I took a macro picture –
because I love macro pictures – which distracted me mightily. So I’ll just post some of the pictures I then took with my macro lens on:
I hate to stay too on topic. Now you can see why I never get to that that to do list.
I took the batch of shirts that I dyed last week back into my indigo vat at Paradigm Gardens to redip. They got sooooooo dark!
Woohoo! That’s one of the awesome super powers of indigo dye. The more times to dip your fabric in, the darker it gets. Now they will hang for a few days before I wash them.
