Been pricing out buying fabric vs. pre-made silk scarves. If you shop hard enough you can get fabric pretty cheap, but then you have to serge the edges etc. Or you can get the pre sewn 8x54' silk scarves for 1.99 each. Good ole cheapass vs busy dilemma.
Ordered 12 of the pre-made silk scarves to check quality and concept. and a couple different types of fabric paint/dyes. Dye-Na_flow starter kit and the ColorHue starter kit. Colorhue sounds best as it is a liquid concentrate and does not require heat setting.
Of course after I hit yes, confirm, I really want to order, dharma trading says that they are moving their warehouse so my order will be delayed a week. <sigh>
Then went to walmart and bought a cheapy tie dye kit and 12 cotton bandanas. At least I can play a little!
Kendoll thought umbrellas/parasols would be fun too, but I might just get a few of those and save them for the baby burners to decorate. If I win the lotto i'll get a couple hundred of these babies as I think it's a grand idea, but we still have two monkey huts to build too.
So, this gifting stuff can get pricey
If there is anyone out there who does bulk ordering of fabrics and can let me in on a deal, please let me know.
