Rust from Rebar

This piece is about the same size as the fence imprint. I wrapped it around a rebar pole with string. If I was smart I would have used something like Perle Cotton that could then be threaded through a needle! Anyhoooo, I like the idea of combining this piece and the gate and stitching away.

  1. Looking good! Of course, don't forget that you can couch down larger pieces of string. I think I learned that from someone else. Do you know who that could be? Anyway, it's interesting that the piece is looking golden. I hope that I can find some rusty rebar while on vacation.

    have some rebar out there...!....
    blog is very nice, easy on the eyes but FULL
    of energy!
