Woven Shibori experiment

I have finished one of the woven Shibori pieces. It didn't come out as I had hoped, but is still kinda nice. The drape of this 12/2 rayon (warp and weft) is very nice and will make some great scarves. But right now, I am trying to work on the dyeing process. The weaving of the shibori I get...... the dying.....not so much.
I have pulled out all the resist threads and will now need to wash it.

Washed and dried. I love the colors! I was hoping for more of the yellow to show, but since this is magic at work, I will take what I get. 

Outside in the early morning light on my gray deck. The base fabric for this experiment is plain weave. 

Check out the tiny holes. A sign it was a Shibori technique.
