Just an Easter Idea.
“Do this, with no Mess!”
Not Your Average Easter Eggs
I am going to write this post, and it’s not going to be about fashion. Well, maybe. So I’m trying to muster some ideas that don’t just talk about fashion, then I realize that it’s really tough. What to write? Hmmm… So our customer service team is talking about Easter eggs, and Rejeanne says, “OMG! Silk-printed Easter eggs are so darling!” I mean you kind of have to believe her, as she bakes cookies and chocolate cakes and makes me eat carb-filled items that expand my waistline, so she’s gotta be telling the truth.
Upon further investigation into the so-called silk printed Easter eggs, she was soo right!! These are totally a real thing, and from the pictures on Pinterest, these turn out amazing. Well, I haven’t tried doing this, but tonight I will. I mean things I have tried to replicate from Pinterest have been a bust- my cake in a crockpot was horrendous, the brownies from scratch with natural cocoa, so bad. I think this idea will work for me since I don’t have to eat it, and it’s fashion involved so I have a leg up on this idea.
You can do this with silk ties, silk underoos, and silk tops! *Make sure these are old, and you won’t mind cutting them up for scraps, if it’s really nice, send it to us and sell it on Swap.com! (The ties, not the eggs, of course.) I would suggest following the instructions from Martha Stewart, she knows her stuff, but I can suggest what to use. Try your local Goodwill, Salvation Army, or if the weather is bright, a garage sale. Get a silk tie and go wild, I hear that wacky fun silk prints dye the best. Make sure that you take the backing of the tie off entirely and unfold the printed fabric, it will dye best for you and create wonderful eggs. Have fun with this and comment on how dashing your eggs look. I can’t wait to do this.
