Nail Head Shibori

This is a really fun pattern to make.  It can be as difficult as you want it to be and as easy as you want it to be.  You can make the nails very close together or farther apart.  I made my nails between 2-3 inches apart.  I made sure to tie the string around the nail head very tightly and wrapped around the nail head multiple times before tying it off.  I did this for each nail until I covered the entire piece.  I recommend doing this while watching your favorite show or movie. 

You will need:

Nails- it's easier if they have a wider head




I did this pattern on a very nice linen fabric that took the indigo very well.  Check out my youtube channel: Catherine Ruhl for more shibori tutorials and videos. Subscribe, like and share to support my channel.  Thanks so much!
