When Beth and I went shopping for fabric for the dress up pieces, we decided to skip on buying silk and dying it. not because of the process of having to dye it, but because the silk was 15 dollars per yard... forget that! I just can't stomach spending that much on fabric when you just don't know if it will even be played with... not to mention, it's for a toy! So, we just bought some satin instead. And, we dont' have to dye it. This was definitely the easiest part of the dress up items as all we had to do was cut and hem. easy peasy. These could be used for so many things... baby blankets, head scarfs, for a magic hat (which I'll be making for Caden's birthday). They are such fun colors too!
