Purple Tombo

I have been making a summer Shibori Obi for my friend Shino who lives in Toyko. It will be a reversible Obi again. One side is the dragonfly. Another side is the morning glory. Last week I finished Shibori works both side up. Then I dyed a dragonfly side. However it became big trouble. Her requested colour was wisteria. I failed making up dye staffs. The fabric's dyed purple.I need to talk to her.
