Drop Cloth – 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:
