I love serendipity.
That reminds me of one of the all time best jokes. But it'll have to wait.
Back to shibori serendipity:
As I was working on one of the shibori series hats my eyes fell upon a couple of handwoven, gossamer scarves that I had dyed previously. The weave is so open and delicate that I had dismissed the idea of doing shibori on them. I didn't think it would show up (make it worth the effort) But now the time was ripe apparently for the Muse to show up unexpectedly: One look - synapses made - matrices of thought intersected. Boom!
What if I used the leftover shibori pieces for the hats as appliqués on the already dyed scarves?
Stop this train, I gotta get off and try this right now.
Sure enough, it would work!. For the blue one nothing else had to be done except to decide how to attach the organza shibori pieces. Hand stitching with silver metallic thread seemed the best solution
The lilac one asked for some additional embellishment to make the dark indigo blue shibori pieces blend with the pastel mauve. How about a little coloring in with sharpie pens? Yep, that would do it.
