Here is a pillowcase I made for my shibori project in my advanced fabric dyeing class.  It was dyed with a red color, but the soda ash was bad so it turned a pink color.  So I stitched it again in the same places and dyed it with navy blue.  More of the red color washed out when I did this and so now it really is pink.  I stitched it horizontally and vertically.

This is beautiful. Although, I think it's time to get rid of that soda ash. The pink is pretty, but I hate the idea of all the dye washing out every time the fabric gets wet.

Does the stitching take a long time? Every time I try to do a stitched shibori I get frustrated when it comes time to pull it tight. That, and it seems to take me forever to get the needle through so many times. I think perhaps when I tried it I was using the wrong kind of needle and thread.

What I do is us upholstery thread because its very durable.  It also depends on the way you are stitching it and tightening it.  This took about three hours.  i usually just do it when I'm watching tv or something
