origami, itajime and other common japanese words

The other day i checked Karren Brito's blog and found this interesting post on origami shibori.
i don't have the book she mentions, but i do have an origami book so i figured folds don't care whether they happen on paper or on cloth.
Looked for the book and then devoted 2 days to the exercise of folding and sometimes clamping(itajime) fabric to be dyed.
It is controlled fun as Monica Geller would say.

Made 2 or 3 samples one of them a small silk crepe itajime that is being presently embellished.
Here is one of the finished samples, cotton and the white squares are silk crepe. A lot less baroque this one oi?
