but with that also comes different types of materials.
Before purchasing your drop cloth know what your project will be

Let’s take a look at some of the projects so you can get a visual of what I mean.
French Place Mats – Drop Cloth
This drop cloth is tightly woven and beautiful to feel and the texture is amazing.
I made these French Style placemats from drop cloth that is a cotton duck cloth type.
The painted lines did not run even after washing.
This Trimaco 56701 Premium Utility Weight Canvas Drop Cloth, 6-Ounce, 9-Feet x 12-Feet type of drop cloth is my favorite.
Quality material and tight weave.
Sunflower Pillow – Drop Cloth
The sunflower print itself was a panel I purchased from Joann Fabrics.
You can view the full tutorial>>>>>>>>HERE
I made the back out of drop cloth that was a looser weave.
My wicker furniture needed some cushions so I decided to cover some existing cushions that I got on clearance
For that tutorial go >>>>>>>>>>>>>HERE
My drop cloth for this was the same drop cloth from the sunflower pillow back.
Lighter, softer drop cloth with a loose weave.
The problem with this drop cloth was that the loose weave didn’t work as well as I would have liked when adding the yarn tufting.
The fabric gave too much when pulling the yarn tight.
Drop Cloth Pillows
If you are needing a seamless drop cloth, Melca makes a nice one with only seams on the edges.
Another fun project the “Drop Cloth Mr. and Mrs. Pillows” for my Farmhouse Master Bedroom Makeover photos can be viewed here.
