I will preface everything with this comment...please excuse the blurry picture. I'll try to take more later...
Okay, most of you know that my husband and I have been rusting fabric...and other things as well.
I have been getting ready to go to the Creativity Retreat in Blowing Rock next week.
I am going to have a Participant Vendor Table with lots of rust fabric and packs of "rusty tid bits" to sale.
As an example, I made several pieces of fabric made out of strips of rusted "stuff".
I then made a wallet out of one piece
and plan on making an origami purse out of another.
Isn't this the coolest thing?!?
I love the texture, the depth of the fabric...
So, you take
one piece of fabric (I used a piece of PFD).
Add a pile of rusted fabric, kimwipes, drawer liner, hand crocheted lace, vintage lace, panty hose, old tee shirts, scraps of other fabric...you get the picture here...I threw just about everything in my rust bucket!
Cut or tear strips of these items. The width or shape is totally up to you (or chance).
Sew these strips onto the piece of fabric that you started with.
New piece of fabric!
Make wallet out of this piece!
Check out my Etsy site for rusted fabric.
I will be adding the Kimwipes soon,
along with packs of rusted vintage lace and the like.
