20 Ways To Try The Shibori Tie Dye Method

Right now I'm sitting on my sofa in the family room which I recently updated and talked about in this post. It's a bit chilly outside for our southern spot and I'm wrapped up in a blanket.


This blue blanket has become my favorite and a spot where I sit with the 3 dogs piled on the sofa while I work on my laptop or read a book. The rich indigo blue color is perfect for our family room
as an accent and the room is open to the kitchen that has a few blue touches as well with accessories. We have lots of pillows piled on the sofa for taking naps and for our two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels who love to be perched up high and lay on something soft.
I'm looking to make a few new pillows and wanted to share a post about TIE DYE today. Since INDIGO BLUE is so on trend at the moment, lots of my blog friends have been experimenting and embracing the Japanese SHIBORI DYE method as a creative means to the end. 


I know a little bit about TIE DYE myself and this was me back in the day when I decided to spruce up my room by TIE DYING a sheet. Haha! I actually think this look might now be back in big time (boho) so I should have kept the Indian bedspread, the sheepskin throw and the poster (Rolling Stones I believe) hanging over the headboard:-)

The easiest way to SHIBORI DYE would be to purchase a ready made kit and there are several out there on the market. They are pre-measured and all come with step by step instructions for both the novice or more experienced crafter.

I can tell you from experience that it's a great idea to attempt any SHIBORI or TIE DYING outside if possible. It's not a toxic project but can be messy, especially if you really get into your work like I do. One drop of indigo on your wood floor or grout can do some permanent damage.
