Decorating Easter eggs with scarves and turmeric

DSC_3096.jpg

Search pinterest “how to dye easter eggs with silk ties” and you’ll get a ton of results on this fun decorating idea.  I didn’t have silk ties but, I found some old scarves and put the method to the test.  It worked like a charm!  I also used the simple method of using a rubber band on eggs and dyeing them in turmeric.  It was amazing the deep yellow color I got just out of 20 minutes of soaking.  Will definitely use this technique again, and plan ahead with a trip to the thrift store searching for silk ties!

365 Project: Jar cozies

I needed a way to protect hands when serving hot, drinkable soup in these jelly jars so I took fabric scraps to make these jar cozies. For my women’s yoga retreat I needed 16 bowls, which I didn’t have, so coming up with this alternative cups makes serving up the soup so much more fun! And, I was so happy to re-purpose and recycle items in my house!
