ICE DYEING A TSHIRT WITH STITCHED SHIBORI

I'm still really into ice dyeing and I tried out another color that spilt.  This time I'm trying some shibori stitching techniques and I'm ice dyeing over a screen.  This means that I'm going to not be doing it "in the muck".  

The color I used for this shirt is call ed Shiitake and it's really pretty!  If you use it for tie dye it will be a neutral taupe color, but when you use it for ice dyeing it splits beautifully!  If you look closely you can see purple, yellow, blue, brown, and pink all running into each other.  It's really cool and comes out a little different each time.  Watch the video for the whole process.

Here are some process photos!
