Ok, I am in love with drop cloth material.
Once you properly prep drop cloth it is so amazing to work with and best of all you can get it for a very low price for the amount of material you are getting.
If you are wanting a drop cloth with no seam in the middle here is one that is seamless except for the hemmed edges>>>>>>>>Seamless Drop Cloth
I am finding that it is getting harder to find the seamless cloths.
Here are the steps to prep drop cloth:
- Wash your cloth two times
- Remove from washer and do not dry
- Iron the drop cloth while it is damp
- Use a steam iron on highest setting
See it really irons well when damp.
If you try to iron when dry you will never get all the wrinkles out.
Learn from my mistake, the first time I worked with the drop cloth, I tried ironing while dry………
Let’s just say it doesn’t work……so a few, not so nice words later…..I washed the cloth again
and ironed while damp.
Properly prepping makes life a whole lot easier. HA!
Cloth Done = Perfection!
Once done you will have this beautiful piece of fabric……..woohoo….let the fun begin….
sorry, its the little things that get me excited.
Ok now let’s do some projects.
