|T-shirt: accordion folded and bound with rubber bands|
|glass floral half marbles, wrapped and bound |
with thread (Is it just me and my sweet tooth or
they look like scotch mints?).

one and others with two bands.

at regular intervals and the other randomly wrapped
with crochet thread
|skeins of cotton crochet thread, some bound |

After I do the indigo dyeing, I will post the resulting fabrics, linking them to the method of prep used so that you can see the effects of the different preparations. Are you as curious to see as I am?
