The fun of this Itajime Shibori fabric dyeing project is that all of the flowers start with the exact same fold, but no two are ever the same. Each student will fold and design nine (9) unique pieces of 22 x 22-inch fabric. The floral patterns are then created using an extensive set of Itajime Shibori acrylic templates, which provide a nearly infinite number of design possibilities, determined by manipulating their shape, location and angle. These big florals are great on their own, but also offer wonderful backgrounds for quilting, embellishing and blinging. You will need to order your complete kit directly from Cindy via the link below. Note: the classroom will remain open for 30 minutes after the scheduled class time to allow adequate time for clean-up.
