Get ready for summer with this list of DIY indigo shibori tutorials and inspiration posts! I love indigo dye, there is something thrilling about watching it oxidate and change vivid colors. Shibori is the perfect creative exercise with countless ways to fold and bind, I’m not sure I’ll ever get sick of trying it out. This is a great summer craft idea for a group of friends to get together and get creative – I can’t wait to dye something new this year!
