These are the last two fold and stitch fabrics for the Continuity shrine.

The silk organza was folded multiple times and pressed into a square, stitched along the folds to secure, then dip dyed on the edges only.  When dry, the fabric was opened up to less layers.  Circles were stitched in the centre of the squares, pulled in tightly, bound with cord for extra resist and carefully dip dyed.

This fabric was folded multiple times on an angle, and the edges dipped further into the dye.
