Rust Dyeing

Well, I keep saying I need some rusty things to dye with.  Well the high winds today gave me my wish.  It shredded our screen tent, but I was able to salvage the rusty tent poles.  I got my PFD fabric and soaked it in vinegar.  Then I wrapped it around the poles, put a few other small rusty objects in the layers and scrunched it down.  I love dyeing with a scrunch wrap, so I hope this works.  I put it all in a plastic back and poured on some more vinegar and tied it up.  I think I’ll let it sit all week. I really hope this works.
