Rust Dyeing Again

This fabric sat overnight with vinegar and various sized rusty nuts and bolts. They came from our neighbor who is refurbishing a boat and who knows I'll take anything rusty. The result is the puppy dog front and center in my Rust-dyed Critter Gallery (second photo). I'm giving this one to my neighbor because it wouldn't exist without his help, and he has a very sweet Goldendoodle. I even embellished it with scraps of curly mohair left over from my ongoing teddy bear project.  It reminds me of his curly fur.

You get such great results and certainly have a knack of perfect pattern placement when creating your critters. Your pooch is perfect.

You come up with such whimsical details. I just love them! I'm a big fan of the circles; great results with the nuts and bolts.
