Skully Shibori Scarf

Skull ScarfShibori is a traditional Japanese technique somewhat similar to tie-dyeing: You clamp, twist, sew, or otherwise bind fabric and then dye it, resulting in interesting patterns. If you choose fabric that tends to shrink (such as wool), the same binding techniques can be used to “mold” three-dimensional surfaces.

Scarves are an easy (and, given the price of wool, reasonably inexpensive) way to show off this technique. Here’s how to use shibori to make a scarf with a subtle skull design.
