Shibori - Round 3, Continued Again

This piece was one of my favorites. I rolled the fabric, folded it in half and bound the pieces with rubber bands.
Can you see the turtle and the baby turtles?
This attempt was very fun, but time consuming. I took glass pebbles, large glass pebbles, and wrapped them in parts of fabric with elastics. I made sure the elastics were secure. Then I dyed the piece. It was heavy and a bit unyieldy. But, it was very unusual to maneuver the wet fabric and I was very curious how it would turn out.
I like the result and think it's unusual how the round pebbles created rather square shapes.
