Tie Dip Dye Description

The classic look of tie-dyed fabric is back with new generation styles that are far more subtle and sophisticated than our old groovy T-shirts. Today, the technique can be found on fashion runways, on the wallpaper of the hottest night spots, and mixed into the summer ensembles of A-list celebrities. In Tie Dip Dye, textile artists Pepa Martin and Karen Davis show us how simple it is to create beautiful, bespoke fabric designs with not much more than dye and a few items that most of us already have in our kitchens. Readers will find:
  • Tips for getting started, from selecting fabrics to preparing dye to basic folding
  • 25 projects including scrunch-dyed curtains, bleached trousers, and a marble scarf set
  • Instructions for core techniques such as dip-dyeing, shibori, bleaching, and shape resist
  • A pattern directory that demonstrates how to achieve a range of beautiful designs
    There is little that can go wrong when tie dying, and simple changes in the way a fabric is pleated or folded can yield beautiful, unexpected results. Tie Dip Dye will inspire crafters of all skill levels to try this versatile technique for the first time or expand on their current dying knowledge. Approximately 140 full-color images throughout.
