I had an super awesome fun time making something pretty. What could be better? First, random circles then…
…messy pleating. The messy part is not required but it’s just my way.
Grab a short length of rope and…
Wrap string around the rope and pleated piece of fabric.
Till it looks like a cocoon.
You don’t have to have a hole in your glove that turns your hand blue but it could happen.
Dip it in the indigo lots of times so it really gets dark.
Unwrap it, it’s an adventure! Use a seam ripper or little embroidery scissors and BOOM you’ve made the willow pattern, my current favorite Shibori pattern.
