Have you ever wondered what to wear under something lacy to really show it off?
Finally the Cable Lace wrap is blocked and wearable. I am more than happy with the size and length.
It's still cool enough to get a couple of wearings out of it before it's time to pack in the woolies
I was feeling a little domestic this week so I decided to try something new. This is how I made Silk Tie Easter Eggs. First, get some old silk ties from the thrift store. Use a seam ripper to make them in to one flat piece of cloth. Also some cotton cloth, I used some old pillow cases
Cut the tie into a piece large enough to wrap around the egg, same with the cotton cloth.
Wrap the silk around the egg with the with the "right" side on the egg's surface tucking in top and bottom. Then bring the cotton fabric up from all four corners to wrap around the egg.
Secure the top with a twist tie or piece of wire. Put your eggs in a glass or enameled pot with enough water to cover and 3-4 tablespoons of white vinegar. Bring to a boil then simmer 25 or 30 minutes.
Viola!! fun and funky eggs with lots of color. I did learn that the more dark and shiny fabric seems to give better color than the matte or lighter fabric.
Happy Easter Everyone~
