Sewn

Sewn Shibori

The half circle and circle patterns are SCA period influenced. These were all done in the Nui style of Shibori dyeing. 

This pattern was completed by folding the fabric into quarters and sewing the two quarter circles on the corner, a pair of half circles on the folded edges and a pair of two full circles on the flat of the fabric 2 layers thick. the running stitch was pulled tight and secured.

 

This pattern was completed by folding the fabric into quarters and then in half again. 3 pairs of half circle were sewn on along the last fold line. Taking each flap of fabric on either side, folded it in half and sewed two more pairs of half circles on each side.

 

The diagonal patterns came about from looking at patterns with a friend who is a Laurel and finding a Tardis pattern. Being a Dr Who fan, but not quite a Whovian, I was amused; she doubted the cleanliness of the lines and pattern could be true Shibori.  Teneat mea mulsa, unofficial challenge accepted. 0:-)

This pattern was completed by folding the fabric into quarters and then in half again. I took a rule one in wide and marked out a border around the fabric. From there I drew diagonal lines which I used as my guide for were to sew my running stitches. Once all the stitched were in place, pulled the thread tight and fabric secured with knots. 

 

This pattern starts out the same as the last: This pattern was completed by folding the fabric into quarters and then in half again. I took a rule one in wide and marked out a border around the fabric. From there I took the diagonal lines to a point from each side then marked out the center section filling it with straight lines going across the rectangle. Once my guideline was in place I ran my running stitches. Once all the stitched were in place, pulled the thread tight and fabric secured with knots.
