Episode 4: Madder dyed Bandanas

itajimi madder

So Episode 4 has gone up on my Etsy page. A collection of ten bandanas resist dyed in madder utilizing various folds and  clamps. Pretty much hacker itajime shibori.  The base cloth is my standard organic color grown gingham. Back when I was making slings I purchased about 150 yards of the stuff from a US mill that was closing at the time.

If you have had a hankering for a natural dyed bandana now is the time to get one. I have already sent two off to their new people, so this episode hits the store with only 8 members. I used a different decorative stitch on each one to reinforce the raw edge.
