Tantalizing pictures, but you need to use full-size ones. The site automatically makes thumbnails. I only see something 1/2" across, which isn't quite enough given the lovely print :-).

Auntie Shel, I use Washfast Acid Dyes from Pro Chemical & Dye in Massachusetts. They are very bright and wonderful to play with. For more on shibori dyeing techniques: You're basically folding the cloth before immersing it into the dye pot. Then you take it out, refold it another way, and dye over this in another color. Repeat maybe 3 times and you have some terrific color combinations. It just takes patience.

Yes, please add how you dye fabric. You do such a beautiful job. I had to go back and look at them all again!

I love the jacket! The coloring so bold and unique. It sure would be great to see a bigger pic if you can load it up.
