Shibori Heart Tshirt

I couldn't help but notice the current trend for all things shibori or dip dyed that are popping up everywhere. Inspired by a recent post by Poppytalk (its a great blog to follow too) I decided to give it a go.

Ive been wanting to revamp my studio wardrobe and decided to have some fun with this white tshirt.

After drawing the heart on the tshirt with a pencil, I stitched the outline with double thread.

Pulling the thread tight, I wrapped the remaining string around the material that was in the middle of the heart. This gives the lines in the centre of the heart.

And this is how it turned out using a hot dye ...

To achieve the pattern on the sleeves, I rolled them up, and then wrapped stitched the rolls to secure them in place.

I got so carried away I forgot to take photos of the process, but if you would like to make a similar design here are some links that show some of the steps:
