Indigo Velvet

I thought I'd show a before picture. This is silk velvet all tied up and ready to dip in the indigo vat. It took a while to tie these 3 yards up.

Velvet Pillow

This is the front piece for a pillow that is about 60" long. I made up the quote myself and did the sublimation on a very long piece of paper to transfer it to the polyester velvet. I was thrilled with the result and so were my folks, who are the recipient.

Chiffon Dishcharge

I did a black chiffon tied discharge for this piece. I can do approximately 3 yards at a time, otherwise it looks too black. I'm very happy with the result. Hope you are too!

Sublimation Print

This is a sublimation print with neutrals and cyan. I just did it as a sample, but it can be made to any length.

Black Satin Itajime Discharge

I did the tortise shell itajime on this black satin as a discharge. Took 6 hours to get to these colors, but I'm pleased. Very dramatic. I think it would look good as a vest or jacket.

Indigo Bamboo Itajime

3 Yards of bamboo which I did the tortise shell itajime on. Feels wonderful.

Chiffon Discharge Yardage

Here is the last of my discharge work for today. An itajime tortishell pattern.

Chiffon Discharge Yardage

I've worked with this pattern and style of tyeing and discharging before. This one however is spaced a little differently.

Raspberry Itajime Scarf

More from the discharge pot. I really like the colors in this one.

Raspberry Arashi Scarf

Today I decided to do some discharge and here is one of the results. I'm very pleased, I like how it varies in depth from thin lines to thick.

Indigo Class

I finished my indigo class last Saturday so here are some of the things I did while I was in class. Hope you like them!
