I Like BIG Backs! - Itajime Shibori


I Like BIG Backs but I Cannot lie!
Folding them solo is cause for struggle, four letter words, and less than stellar fabric. I've been practicing folding SOLO since the pandemic started, and after a full year, I am getting good enough to share my victory! 

I will send - 
102" x 102" high quality "PFD" fabric
Mega Bar 2" x 12" set of Itajime templates
8 ounce squeeze bottle 
Fiber Reactive Indigo Dye (If you prefer a different color, add it to the notes section and I will do my best to accommodate!)
Fixatives & Detergents
Gloves and Dust Mask

These will be a Facebook Support Group
The Class will be on Zoom 

You will need
A large (long) folding area - I used two 6' folding tables end to end as I cannot work on the floor anymore.
A large bin with lid - (L x W x H): 23 x 16.25 x 6 inches - I use Sterlites 28 qt. bin. 
3 to 5 LARGE Clamps - I prefer the 6" Spring Clamps (shown in black) although they are a little small for the job. 
I also like the large gold trigger release pressure clamp. This is quite a big stack of fabric and you need the big mouth clamps
to do the job. 
Masking take
Tape Measurer 
10 ro 12 clean medium to large binder clips




Cost: $ 135.00
