The not so accidentally dyed puzzle piece
There is nothing new about shibori. Resist dyeing. It's an age old technique. A while back I began to use this technique more specifically to create loose patches destined to be puzzle pieces and components in my work. I often use them as bases to create stitched symbols. They are now part of my story.
My first introduction to Indigo was through my work as a textile designer , my day job career. Later I ran across Laura (Indigo Night Owl), she's knitting more these days... way back when she was indigo dyeing. She sent me some little indigo scraps with white circles like moons.
The moon faced lion was born.
