Instant silk dying

At the Mancuso World Quilt and Textile show, Marlene Glickman shared how to dye silk scarves. Each of these scarves were done in less than 10 minutes in her booth. The best part is that the dyes were not messy! We did not even wear gloves while dying the scarves in a sandwich bag. She shared how to get the zebra stripe effect and the apprearance of squares just by how we folded the fabric. It was so much fun!
