Sea green banners


Originally uploaded by SOFennell

On Tuesday after class, I rushed home from school for a quick lunch, then manipulated (shibori) a few hachi maki and put them in a turquoise and yellow dyebath. They soaked for an hour (after adding soda ash). Then they were washed to remove the excess dye and hung on the line until damp (I was expecting rain at any minute and there was a good breeze).
After ironing, the edges were finished with a serger (rolled hem) and a 1 inch casing (done on my sewing machine) at the top.

They will eventually hang in the school’s library (with a vertical orientation) or other places around the school.
