You know when you do this Shibori weaving you have to let your fabric dry before you can pull out the resist threads, don't you? So that is what I had to make myself do.... I was really anxious to see what was there.
So here is the end result for the cotton towel fabric.
the rest is just magic!
Remember I told you that this was a 'sample'. See if you can see where the base fabric is twill. And notice the heavily patterned strip. That is why your base fabric needs to be either plain weave or a smile twill. IMHO.
