A new season seems like a perfect time to try a new style or a bright pop of color in your home. Out with the old, and in with the DIY! Inspired by Spring colors and cherry blossoms, this DIY Pink Shibori throw pillow is in a rosy pink color instead of the traditionally used indigo blue.
I, Anusha, have always wanted to try Shibori, a Japanese dyeing technique that’s easier than you would think. If you haven’t tried it yet, the great thing about it is you can fold and bind the fabric to create your own unique design or follow our instructions below to replicate mine. You really can’t mess this one up…
optional: scrap piece of fabric
Wash and dry the cushion cover to remove any residue and prepare it for dyeing.
Fold the fabric in an accordion style, stopping to iron each fold as you go.
Then, fold the fabric in a triangle accordion style. When you have finishing folding the fabric, tie the two triangle corners with a rubber band.
Finally prepare the dye bath according to the package instructions and dye your fabric. Once dyed, rinse the fabric in warm water, followed by cold water until the water runs clear. Wash, dry and insert a cushion into the cushion cover. That’s it!
What do you think? Do you prefer the trend in the traditional blue, or do you love the pop of pink like us?
