This is one of those projects that might go on for some time, it has a life of its own, I love it, it will be cherished once its finished.
To start the dyeing of, I didn't just want a simple indigo and cream throw, I wanted it to have some depth, so I decided the first colour layer on this fabric would be yellow. I also wanted to create distinct circles, so I started with some jam had lids clamped on the folded fabric using some cheap plastic clamps normally used for wood working, these hold things super tight, so work perfectly:
Next up I dyed the first layer yellow, the fabric takes the colour better on the outside:
This was then dyed again in Navy acid dye.
Next up I wanted to apply some other textures across the circles, so I wrapped the fabric around a drain pipe and wrapped lots of string around it, where the string ties the fabric the dye doesn't penetrate and so you get some lovely wavy textures:
