Oh, how I do love indigo!
This small quilted piece is "Indigo Moon" by Jane La Fazio. [ I am taking a sketchbook journaling on-line class from Jane through Joggles.] Jane was using hand dyed fabrics from Shibori Girl, Glennis Dolce. [Just Google Shibori girl and you will find her!]
So, I now have some similar fabrics which of course I ordered from Glennis and am excited to decide how to use them. On a denim jacket??? wallhanging???? totebag????? So many possibilities! [And yes, that special round "indigo moon" was what really "sold" me on ordering these, LOL!]
The lovely blue color comes from this little plant. Finding some indigo and dying my own never occured to me.....
Until today's newspaper ad from Jo Ann fabrics....they have this indigo (the real thing!) tie dye kit on sale!!!
Searching on-line, I found bloggers who have explored the kit and loved what they have created. This photo is from Honestly....WTF .
Below, a photo from 2 years ago where I am wearing tie-dye in indigo. This particular shirt is from Jones New York, not a local craftsperson. I have really enjoyed wearing it and I am not ready to cut it up for an art quilt yet!
