One of our nephews turned three early last month, so it was time to break out the pots again and dye up a set of playsilks. As I was working on them, O. was reminiscing about his playsilk use. "I used the blue for water and the red and yellow for fire and lava. Those were my favorites!" He still plays with them, but he was talking about them like it was so long ago. I was amused.
This time I used the 35x35" silks from Dharma Trading Co. and the following dyes:
Blue: Sky Blue Wilton dye
Green: Leaf Green Wilton dye
Yellow: 1 tsp. tumeric
Red: 2 packets Cherry Kool-Aid + Christmas Red Wilton dye
