Stitch resist

Tie dye with a stitch resist - I stitched a heart shape then ruched up the stitches tightly, tied the thread then dipped the piece in cold water dye

There are lots of different ways of resisting dye or paint - gutta, wax, tightly tying round objects, pegging, pinching, clipping, folding (concertina style), scrunching and ruching (ie. shibori)
