Shibori denim

Bleached instead of dyed... Denim inspirations....

Log Cabin Scottie Dog!

My mum gave me this beautiful fabric by Aunt Grace. I'm savouring every last piece and have used a tiny section for this little cushion (yet unfinished). I envy quilters who can work so accurately...I don't have the patience! However, I do see every single mistake/ wonky edge etc...

Patchwork Revisited...

I think this indigo quilt was started in 2006... I have finally put the squares together to make a mini quilt. The indigo fabrics were hand dyed in Africa and all unique. Just need to finish and quilt it. I'm thinking about knotting it instead. Lets hope it doesn't take another 3 years to complete!

And finally completed, knots and all...

Some shibori samples- like tie-dye, but using twisting, folding and stitching to create patterns. Examples are on silk habutai.

Cut-out using shibori sample and indigo shibori sample.

Very now- ikat fabrics and draping on SS10 catwalk.

1950s Trousers

Vintage pattern, satin chino fabric. These need some alteration around the hip area...
