Chick-a-Dee loves playing with and dressing up in a variety of fabrics, so I recently purchased some over-sized silk scarves to dye. They are very affordable and super quality from Dharma Trading. I had read about how to do it at Raising Olives.
First you soak the silk in hot water.
Put the dye in a jar of warm water (kool aid works great!) and heat in a water bath.
Once the silk has attained just the right hue, remove it from the jar and rinse in cold water. Rinse WELL.
