kanoko shibori -untie magic

If you've had thoughts of how horrid it would be to untie all those small tied dots the promised tutorial is here. The system works like a charm.
  • hold the fabric with both hands
  • put your index finger under a tied bundle give it an upward push
  • tug the fabric with both hands and the tie will pop undone. Voila!
  • move to the next tie keeping hold of the fabric and repeat the operation
It really pays off to do the tying with a continuous thread.
BTW the fabric was dyed with my one and only successful indigo vat.
It isn't dark dark blue, but it's a pretty good blue. Getting there!

neki desu
