Indigo dyed Shibori up- cycled cotton sheeting, navy blue tie-dyed cotton fat-quarter for patchwork sewing, Awase ori-nui Shibori Japanese technique Hand dyed indigo Recycled cotton 50×52cm 19.5"×20.5" no. 101, 102 & 104
This design is created by careful folding and then stitching to create a grid pattern. Awase ori-nui is a technique where the stitching is worked on a double fold. The pattern depends on the placement of the fold and lines of stitching. I prepare the stitching and dye in small batches with synthetic indigo on up-cycled cotton sheeting. Each piece is unique. It has been washed but there may be some dye residue remaining and I recommend pre-washing if intending to use with light fabrics. The up-cycled cotton will have variations in the weave and suppleness. I have 3 pieces available, stitched and dyed together then cut into fat quarters.
