Works-for-me Wednesday - Kool-Aid dyed scarves

Yeah, I know. I haven't posted for a few days.

So here's one. A Works-for-me Wednesday post. Kool-aid dyed silk scarves. I found this on another lady's blog a couple of weeks ago. For the life of me, I can not remember whose it was. So please forgive me if you read this and I didn't give you credit. Whoever it was: Thank you for the idea. Since I couldn't find the blog again I searched it out and found these instructions. I bought the scarves from Dharma Trading Co. I ordered 3 different silk scarves, but the larger ones were the favorites. I've ordered some more since the ones we did turned out so well. Next time, though we might add a little food coloring into the mix. The yellow didn't turn out very bright. It's pretty, but really light.

This is just a few pictures of the scarves we did. We did yellow, red, orange, pink, green, and purple.

Now for more Work-for-me Wednesday posts go over to We Are THAT Family. She's got a great one up about traveling with kids. Boy, do I ever need those tips.

Until next time...
