200 Shibori Fabrics I Dyed - Rerun

I am laying all my fabrics I recently dyed on my ironing table. I thought I could take a picture of all of them, but I can’t get up high enough to get them all in the picture. Almost all of them were arashi shibori dyed on PVC poles. Many were dyed more than once.

It is going to take me several pictures to show them all to you.

By having them all laid out like this I can see what I have and I can start using them to design more compositions.

200 pieces of fabric are a lot. Some pieces are a half yard or more. Others are fat quarters or notebook paper size.

Whatever size they are, they are all exciting to see – IMHO!

I overlapped these more so you could see a wider range of the fabrics in one photo.

This shows some of the fabrics that were larger pieces. The patterns on many of them spanned the width of the fabric.

My goal was not to dye as many fabrics as I could. I was just trying to get a good assortment and a variety of types of fabrics.

I also usually mixed up too much dye so rather than throw it out I just kept dyeing.

If you try to count them and don’t find 200 it is because I have already used quite a few of them.

Seeing them all together is impressive- makes me want to dive in and touch them and arrange designs.
Well done!
