I've been looking at shibori (a Japanese form of dyeing fabric using indigo dye and done by tying knots twisting and wrapping the fabric) for ages and I finally had some free time to try it out. These are my first attempts and I love them! I just cut up scrap fabric that I had into squares to try out a few different techniques. You can honestly make anything, scarves, blankets, bibs, tshirts, wall art, cushions, sarongs, rugs, quilts; the list is as long as your imagination!

When it comes to summer DIY projects, there’s nothing better than shibori. It’s a little messy, completely free-form, and a lot of fun. Plus, you can feel a bit like a hippie mad scientist stirring up a bucket of dye in the backyard in preparation of this tie-dyeing project. But lest you think shibori is a one-trick wonder, we found five glorious DIY projects to show off its full range. Spoiler alert: Indigo isn’t the only color you can use.
