This is especially true of English vowel sounds and their representation in writing. This material provides examples of typical spelling patterns for English vowel sounds, proceeding from the sound to spelling. If it is more convenient for you to proceed from the letters and letter combinations to the sounds that they represent, you can reorganize this material according to your wish. An example how to do it is given in Method 2 in the section Phonetics.

Techniques[ edit ] Ne-maki shibori example There are an infinite number of ways one can bind, stitch, fold, twist, or compress cloth for shibori, and each way results in very different patterns.
Each method is used to achieve a certain result, but each method is also used to work in harmony with the type of cloth used.
Therefore, the technique used in shibori depends not only on the desired pattern, but the characteristics of the cloth being dyed. Also, different techniques can be used in conjunction with one another to achieve even more elaborate results. It involves binding certain sections of the cloth to achieve the desired pattern.
Traditional shibori requires the use of thread for binding. The pattern achieved depends on how tightly the cloth is bound and where the cloth is bound.
If random sections of the cloth are bound, the result will be a pattern of random circles. If the cloth is first folded then bound, the resulting circles will be in a pattern depending on the fold used. It involves taking a hooked needle and plucking sections of the cloth.
Then a thread is looped around each section twice. The thread is not knotted; tension is the only thing that holds the sections in place. The resulting dyed cloth is a water-like design. Because no knot is used, miura shibori is very easy to bind and unbind.
Therefore, this technique is very often used. This technique involves pleating sections of the cloth very finely and evenly. Then the cloth is bound in very close sections. The result is a very specific spider-like design. This specific design requires very precise technique.
A simple running stitch is used on the cloth then pulled tight to gather the cloth. The thread must be pulled very tight to work, and a wooden dowel must often be used to pull it tight enough.Misc thoughts, memories, proto-essays, musings, etc. And on that dread day, the Ineffable One will summon the artificers and makers of graven images, and He will command them to give life to their creations, and failing, they and their creations will be dedicated to the flames.

I put it together using my indigo shibori hand dyed papers and tie dye fabric or watercolor hand painted paper. Japanese shibori is a centuries old traditional method of tie dyeing or manipulating fabric to make detailed, intricate patterns, usually with indigo dyes.
