Fabric Rusting Revisited

I just wasn't happy with the way the first time I rusted this fabric. So I put it in a bucket with the rusting chain, some vinegar, water and left it there for a few days. It looked pretty gross.



I do like the way it turned out. This piece even has some dark steel gray/blue splotches. I have no idea why that happened but I really like it and wish I could do it again. Now does anyone have any good ideas what I could do with this piece of fabric?

Oh Barbara, I did some rusting too and I was just going to ask you what your plans for the fabric are!!!

I love how your fabric turned out. Even more so the second time around. I'll have to try this technique. But I don't have much patience to wait for it to get done. :0}
I bet it would look good used in this kitty pattern I have. I'd love to see what you do with it.

I wondered...would the pattern and color hold up in one of your fabric baskets? It would be so pretty and organic looking...maybe?
