This is gonna be short and sweet.
If you follow my Instagram stories (which I’m totally touch and go with), you may have caught wind of my shibori attempt. I say, “attempt” because the final product turned out medium in my book of DIY successes; not quite how I imagined, but also, not a total failure.
See? Not the luscious dark indigo blue I had hoped for, but, also, not ugly. Baby won’t care a stitch and I guess that’s what ultimately matters.
This project all started with an old swaddle I found in the baby stash that had a small stain. Now, I could have bleached it out, but, I figured that stain was just the prompting I needed to get crafty.
I used this spray dye and followed a mix of these tutorials:
I won’t give you my own step by step because their insight ^^^ is much more valuable than mine. Now, if I get brave and give this craft another go I’ll try this indigo dye kit next. But, if I hang up my shibori hat (likely) here’s the blanket I’ll buy. Or, this beauty!
Do you love shibori as much as I do? I mean, my maternity photos with this little one is a sure sign that I’m in love!
