Play silks are great for imaginary play. Unfortunately they can get rather expensive if you buy them already made. I really wanted a nice set for my son’s third birthday so I set out to dye my own.
Dharma Trading has great prices on plain white silk scarves and they came highly recommended, so I went with them.
Today, while Little Bit slept, I Kool-Aid dyed some more play silks for his birthday. I found an awesome tutorial at Confessions of a Stash Junkie. There is also a neat color guide at Tried and True.
Here are the results:
1, 36×36 orange (this was a re-dye, as it didn’t turn out the first time.)
1, 36×36 blue (a duplicate of one I already made)
2, 8×54 rainbows
1, 22×72 rainbow
and 1, 6×24 pink.
One of the 8×54 rainbows, the blue and the little pink ones are a birthday gift for a friend’s daughter.
I’m rather pleased with how this batch came out.
The ones I made before are all 36×36 and solid colored.
Red, Purple, and Gold (accidental, but pretty)
Blue, Pink, and Green
Since I still have some time before Little Bit’s Birthday, I’m thinking of getting some more blank ones and making a batch for party favors.
