30 Things to Make with Drop Cloths

A canvas drop cloth is a fabulous craft supply. Look at all the way you can use it. Some, you don’t even need to sew!

There’s something about the natural and neutral look of drop cloth canvas that has attracted crafters and designers for the last few years.  I’ve been working with it for my next Craftaholics Anonymous post this month so it’s been on my mind and I thought I’d pull up some more inspiration for you.

I'm a fan of the stenciled bottom curtains! I'm still planning on making these using the same stencil I put on a couple of pieces of furniture in my bedroom! SOMEDAY!

I just completed hot pads after using my embroidery machine to embroider olives on the cloth then cutting them in different sizes, using batting in between.

I am inspired. Especially about making curtains from the drop cloths. The isda wheels are spinning like crazy. Thank you for the ideas.
