Pole Wrap Shibori- Arashi Variation


This pattern is really fun and very organic.  This is a take on Arashi Shibori.  Usually Arashi is a lot more neat and tidy, but I went with a more imperfect wrap.  This pattern reminds me of a geode or agate.  It's made by wrapping the fabric around a pole.  The results will vary a lot depending on the size of your pole and your fabric.  The smaller your fabric the more "regular" your pattern will be.  I used a relatively small pipe about 2" wide. I really like the way this one came out.  Have you ever done any pole wrapping shibori?  Let me know how it went.
