Let's make an interested indigo dye handkerchief.
Fold the square cotton in half;
make both sides with organ folding;
fold to a triangle shape;
back side with organ folding to a triangle too;
at last, the cotton will be a triangle wholly.
Both sides are clamped with iron clips and clamped with a wooden clamp in the middle.
Put it into warm water (about 50 degrees) for half an hour.
Mix dyes then put the cotton into for about 10 to 20 minutes. But please dry the water first before put into the dye.
Take of the clips after dyeing. You can soak it longer if darker color wanted. Color is yellow-green when you open the fabric now. It’ll become dark green for slowly oxidizing, then become blue at last.
Dry it in air and iron it. There comes the indigo dye handkerchief.
There’s another pattern with similar folding ways like following. Pictures for help.
