I was gifted a number of vintage huipiles that were brought back from Guatemala. They were incredibly beautiful and were covered with hand embroidery. They were very old so some parts of them were very worn out. So I decided to "upcycle" them and piece together the most fantastic parts of embroidery to make a pillow.
I sat down and compiled a complete list for you to get started. I've included links for everything- I also encourage you to look around your house for things you have.
I made this video a while ago and haven't posted it because I wasn't used to seeing myself on camera. But I realize that being on camera is an opportunity for me to share my knowledge and gifts with the world. I'm a creative and I always have been.
This is one of my favorite patterns hands down! It's modern and geometric. You can make it more white or more blue depending on the size of the fold. I did this one with mostly white- I think it looks very understated and delicate. Click for Supply List.
We all know the most exciting part of the dyeing process or a dyeing workshop is the moment when you get to open it up! So I decided to compile a bunch of reveals into one video. I think it's sort of relaxing to watch and can spark ideas for you. Check it out and thanks for watching. xoxo
My Online Shibori Workshop:
I was so excited when I was asked to make this large scale wall hanging! My friend bought an apartment and wanted a big shibori piece for her living room. I was given a lot of artistic freedom, which was so awesome! I was honored that she asked me and I was excited to do some quilting!
