I saw an easy tutorial on the Shibori technique at Burdastyle and had to try it. It turned out rather well, though next time I'll be using thinner cotton and a smaller needle as I have a nice set of decorative holes along with the stripes! I also experimented with dripping candle wax on the fabric to form a resist pattern. Doesn't seem to have been thick enough wax to prevent the dye from seeping through, but I haven't tried boiling the wax away yet. The dye is a vinegar and red wine mix.
