[Textiles: Anatomy] Experimenting with Shibori Dyeing, 09/16

My first response to Sonja Baumel. After experimenting with a straight foot and free embroidery foot I decided to use free machine embroidery as I had a lot more freedom and flexibility when sewing the veins. I took inspiration from her netted structure pieces to produce shibori dyeing  cotton samples developed with embroidery,wire and stuffing. I experimented with adding wire and studding into the veins to raise them, and with different types of shibori dyeing to receive contrasting vein structures/directions.
