Need Suggestions

These are my two best rust-dyed fabrics so far, they're waiting for a project. Wondering what "something special" can I do with them.

my first thought is oh...that's a pretty Batik. My ornery thought is..it has rust all over it, it's ruined! LOL

They are beautiful!!! When I have a beautiful piece of fabric I often don't do anything with it - afraid to cut into it. I don't recommend that as you end up, as I do with baskets of excess fabric. Perhaps small quilted/embroidered pieces that you could either frame or hang from a small rod. Or make a series of three small hangings and hang them as one..

Lovely results, pin them up where you can see them and wait for the ideas to come, they will. Often you can find shapes and work from that. I think Penny's idea of quilted stitch hangings is good,

Pick up something else and live with the rusty fabrics for a while until they tell you what they want to become. :o)

Love, love, love them. I want to "embellish" them and follow the lines and layer and enjoy the process of it developing and taking on a life of its own. Which is what you will be doing. You have that delicate sense of knowing just what small detail will compliment and make it pop. Can't wait.

These pieces of cloth are great, so intricate and interesting. Can they be stretched on to a frame like a canvas, on which you could paint? Made into an interesting satchel, with perhaps some beading? I'm trying to come up with ideas that wouldn't involve cutting of the cloth. If you beaded a little something onto each piece and then stabilized the fabric you could make a unique satchel.

These are just beautiful....they are pieces of art by themselves. Maybe a pretty pot holder and towel?
