One of the more popular posts on Creative in Chicago is my Shibori Tie Dying Folding Techniques, I went quite berserk with a bucket of indigo dye and created a set of really gorgeous tie dyed fabric.
My fabric is in the process of being turned into a throw but I am a bit lazy when it comes to sewing and it has sat unfinished for more than three years – tut tut! All it needs is a backing fabric and it would be done.
But my thoughts have recently come back to that tie dye loveliness with an upcoming Spoonflower design challenge to create a repeating tie dye pattern.
Why not use what I already had?
I gave my forgotten sewing project a massive session with a steam iron then painstakingly photographed each block.
It was then time for some digital magic in Photoshop and I ended up with a collection of 15 designs. My Modern Tie Dye Fabric Collection was born
And take a gander at how lovely they look!
So if you are in the market for a modern tie dye fabric look but can’t be faffed with a bucket of indigo and sporting blue hands for a whole week
