Rusty Fabrics

In the last post back in April, I made a lot of rusted fabrics and papers while I was on the Alice Fox course,  I decided it was time to start using them up along with a lot more rusted fabrics created last year.
First I thought I would make a few more.
(apologies I put Amanda Fox. have now corrected it to Alice Fox)

Fabric wrapped around 6" nails



A selection of old and new rusty fabrics









The fabric below is a very loose weave easy to stitch into, can't remember the name of it but it is the one used in Jan Beaney and Jean Littlejohn's DVD, available from ArtVan Go.

I stapled three pieces together before I rusted it then hand stitched in each portion.


I  stapled a whole piece of fabric before rusting for this sample below.



I placed a template over the cloth so I could judge where the stitching would go.

guess what I am going to do with my empty tins, yes put them in the garden so they rust, I have one large rusty nail so far in my rusty collection so it will be a while before I can make amazing fabrics like you have

Tinned food from now on! I love those little hearts and what a super stash of fabrics you have for further lovely pieces.
