Rusty Goodness

I love the color of rust.
I love the depth of color that you can get when rusting fabric.
Here is a sampling of what I did with some of the rust that I have collected.













This is cotton jersey with a bit of spandex.
I am making scarves out of the fabric - they are beautiful.
And so soft after washing, no hard particles of rust on/in these.
I have several scarves made from the fabric and I love them all. A couple of them are embellished with a technique that I wrote a magazine article about. It's coming out later this year.
These are about 9 inches and the length varies (shortest one is about 70 inches).
If you're interested in purchasing one, shoot me an email.
I will send you photos of the finished scarf.
The price is $45.
