Itajime


Itajime

Originally uploaded by SOFennell

The weather warmed up to the 80’s this weekend, so the one thing I looked forward to was being able to put something (with color) on the line. I’d dyed some pieces in a cotton and hemp blend a few weeks ago with itajime in mind. These were dyed in a rust-red, then folded into triangles and discharged, similar to “magicloth”. I used the same method, but, the patterns turned out differently from the tablecloth and each panel is slightly different from the other-I’m not at all disappointed about that.

My original plan was to make a 2 panel noren and I think I’ll continue with that in mind.
