Hey! So I’ve got a Miss Matatabi Maker post up over on the Miss Matatabi blog. Sure, it may seem like the first of the new year, but it’s actually supposed to be my last post of last year. Oops! Totally my fault – I lagged on getting Frances my post.

Anyways, if you follow me on Instagram (@youandmie), you know that I recently tried out the Japanese technique of dyeing fabric called shibori. It was such a fun experience and I love how unique all the fabric turned out!
Well I made a couple of things with that fabric and I’m sharing them over at Miss Matatabi, plus some tips that I learned from the process, so go check it out! I seriously can’t wait to do it again, if only it weren’t so much work, I want to shibori all the things!
These look great! I have gotten interested in shibori as well and I wrote several posts on it, using both indigo and fiber mx reactive dyes
Very cool! Yes, I found the whole process so fascinating!
Hi! I am a new fan of your fabulous blog. I would love if you followed my blog back: http://www.dramatiquedesigns.wordpress.com
So pretty! I declare this a homeschool project for us this year. I’ll tell the kids about the history of indigo in fashion or something.
You TOTALLY could. It ties (pun intended) to history, art AND science (serious chemical reactions here). AND THEN YOU GET TO WEAR IT. Home school uniform yo.
so awesome, i love seeing the whole process. and woo you used my tute again! thanks dude! :*
Haha, seriously, it’s my go to!
I just came back from Japan where I discovered about this technique, that is so cooler than western tie-dye! Yours is great, I love the purse!
Thanks! It IS cooler, huh!?
