I have wanted playsilks for Cara for a very very long time. I'm a bit of a scrouge though and didn't want to pay $20 per silk so started researching dyeing them myself. There are a number of blogs with instructions on how to do this, so last month I finally ordered some un-dyed silk scarves and got to dyeing them this morning.
This is what my clothes line looks like at the moment.
This was so much fun and I can't wait for Cara to see them on Christmas Day.
You may notice that there are two of each, well one set was a custom order from a friend so they will be winging their way down the line next week.
I will actually use Cara's ones to wrap her other presents in, and hopefully I will be able to make a felt crown or something similar to use with her new silks.
Oooooooooooooooh I can't wait!
