DIY indigo shibori tutorials & project inspiration.
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!

If you’re wondering how to do DIY indigo shibori dyes, I have a bunch of technique tutorials linked in this post that also has my very favorite DIY Indigo dye kit reviewed (I also have tried the Yellow Owl one and it stinks, don’t use it). If you decide you don’t want to mess with actual dye, check out all these shibori-style fabrics you can buy and start sewing!

There are lots of books about indigo shibori dyeing, or if you prefer a video style check out this indigo shibori dye class on Creativebug!

Please pin this post of DIY Indigo Shibori Tutorials for later with this link, and not the individual pictures:

Check out over 13 fresh indigo shibori tutorials! This is a perfect summer tie dye project, working with indigo dye is soothing and fun. Grab a group of friends, pick a project and start experimenting with indigo shibori dyes. #shibori #indigodye #crafts
