Folding and Tying Techniques 2 – Técnicas de Doblaje y Atado 2

Itajime Shibori is one of various shibori techniques. Traditionally the fabric was sandwiched between wood and tied with string, more modern versions use plexiglass and clamps. If you do an image search for Itajime Shibori you will find some beautiful results. I’m sharing a very simple version which I folded quickly. If you are looking for greater precision, you can measure and iron each fold as you go along. I think the pictures are elf explanatory but if you have any doubts, let me know and I will add written explanations.
