Rust Dyeing

Sunny days create a perfect opportunity for some rust dyeing.

Box of Rust

A box has been slowly filling up with rusty bits n bobs, some of which came from beach combing at Aldeburgh.

Bags full of fabric scraps, vintage bits and pieces of plain cotton were waiting, ready to dye.

Bits and Bobs

A lot of fun can be had with a bit of fabric, rusty junk, good plastic bags and some supplies from the kitchen (water and vinegar).
