The following fabrics were all stitched, clamped, or wrapped in an attempt to create darker shibori dyed fabrics. I was better pleased with how the dyeing took in these samples. However since these pieces are all quite small, none larger than A4 sized, I think I will need to create more shibori fabrics, this time perhaps doubling the width to 22" or so.

The following samples are translations of 3 of my more complex paper designs into textile samples using my dyed, monoprinted, bleached and stitched fabrics, hopefully combining all elements into a sympathetic relationship. I have displayed both sides of the fabric samples, with the seamed and frayed edges at the front.
