Make It : Tie Dye Gifts

Posted by




I have always wanted to try some tie dye crafts. My friend Karlo Bello made some great dyed scarves to give as gifts and to sell at the recent Martha Stewart Craft Sale. I saw the results of his efforts and wanted to share a few. He is inspired by all types of shibori including kanoko shibori (commonly known as tie dye) and itajime shibori (folding and clamping) but loves to combine various techniques into one piece. I also thought his tools were great, very simple but you canĀ achieveĀ so many different effects. Also check out the tie dye story from the August 2007 issue of Living, it has really great how-to info.
