DIY | How To Shibori Dye | Itajime

Last week I tried my hand at shibori dying for the first time!

 This is a really easy way to dye your own fabric and create unique patterns and prints at home. After signing up to become a We Make Collective member, I followed one of their easy step by step guides on Shibori dying to create this unique square, geometic design that I later made into a cushion. The technique I used was called Itajime but you can create any pattern you like using a variety of techniques, check out Honestly WTF for more info on different ways to dye fabric. 

See how I did it below and follow along if you want to have a go at shibori dying too...

Lifestyle | Breakfast at Keelham Farm Shop

 As you might know I love a good breakfast, especially when the ingredients are fresh and locally sourced. 

Earlier this month I headed to Keelham Farm Shop in Skipton for a fresh breakfast and some grocery shopping. 

Although starting off as a humble farm, Keelham has grown to become a no ordinary farm shop, it now offers breakfast in it's quirky cafe as well as boasting a huge barn fully stocked with local and fresh ingredients.
