Silk Dyed Eggs!

Silk Dyed Eggs!

Did you know that you can imprint your favourite silk fabric pattern on egg in a few easy steps! Check out this tutorial and find it out!

What you need

Materials Needed:

Silk fabric (100% silk)
Stainless steel pot
Thread and cotton fabric.


Make sure that the fabric is 100% silk otherwise the dye won’t work.

Cut out enough silk fabric to cover the entire egg. Cover the egg with the right side of the fabric facing the egg.

Once you’re done wrapping the egg tie the open end of the fabric with a thread.

Wrap the entire egg with thread, making sure that the silk fabric is at the closest to the egg. This is for better imprint.

Now place the egg in a stainless steel pot and cover the egg with water. Add 1/4 white vinegar and bring it to a boil. After 20 minutes you can take out the eggs and allow them to cool.

Once the egg cools down you can remove the fabrics and see the magic! Use different printed fabrics for more fun patterns! Enjoy!

    This is a lovely idea especially with Easter coming up. This will be a great project for me to do with the silk sari material I have 🙂
