The other Fabric of Choice!

It has great strength, great texture, great price in fact I have only great opinions of well, you guessed it a painters drop cloth! You can buy them at dollar stores, Wal*Mart, hardware stores…just about anywhere. Throw them in the washing machine, bleach them if you like, dry them with a little bounce and you’ve great a sweet smelling, soft, perfect large piece of fabric. My mind is so full of ideas for the magical drop cloth, but here’s my first project:

Washed and ready!

Use a stencil, painters tape and pencil to create your art.

Choose a paint to match your decor.

Any word is good!

Some words are better!

If you run out of words, just tape up some meaningless stripes!

Place them in a desired location.  They’re going to love it here! :)

Or they might love it better over here!

I’ll be over at Blue Cricket Design!
