Instructional tri-fold pamphlet, printed on cardstock, can be purchased for $4.00 (price includes US shipping). It explains everything: specific fabric and where to get it, rod dimensions and where to get it, how to sew and dye flags, how to work with extremely safe and simple dyes, much more. Excellent learning tool.

Because volume is low, I print this item with my inkjet printer as they are ordered. My inkjet printer is not 100% reliable. It gets quirky and produces various streaks. I make certain everything I send out is completely readable. I apologize for the imperfect copies that occur.

Because silk is a protein (animal) fiber, it can effectively be dyed with unsweetened Kool-Aid. The process is fairly simple and requires only kitchen supplies, as Kool-Aid is not a toxic chemical dye.
This link can easily be adapted to silk fabric. (But be warned, the old page now forwards to a site called Gaea Creations.) My publication specifically explains the process for silk.
If combining with fabric paints, the painting should be done after the dyeing process. My publication explains all this.
