Jacquard woven silk scarf

Put water, silk paint and the scarf in a saucepan. One hour later you will have an evenly coloured scarf. Fixed and ready to decorate with decorate with charms.

1. Bring two liters of water to the boil and add 10ml colour. Put the scarf into the water, stirring occasionally. Simmer for one hour – the colour will be fixed.

2. Rinse all excess colour off and iron the scarf.

3. Sew charms and rocaille beads onto the scarf: 
Fasten the string in the scarf. Feed the string through the charm’s loop and back through the bead. Twist three times around the string before fastening it.
