I promised to tell you how to make a bedspread out of a canvas painter's drop cloth ($8.99 at Lowe's).
|Start with a canvas drop cloth. Put it through a wash in the washing machine. I used warm water and detergent and dried it in the dryer.|
|I asked my grandson to pose on it so people would know it goes on a bedspread. He is pretending to be asleep. I went back and outlined the shapes with a Sharpie. I wish I hadn't, but it was too late. I liked it better before I did that!|
|I had my granddaughter sew pendants while I turned and pressed them.|
|This is a peak at what we're doing with them in the "dirt bike" room for the grandson.|
|I've spent all day painting and adding a few touches to the walls. I'll show you the complete room when I finish.|
While fighting off villains, I've decided that instead of a bedspread I am going to use the cloth as a special tablecloth or picnic cloth. The colors did not come out as bright as I needed them to be. I like the idea though. I think I can tweak it and make something really nice. Maybe some Celtic knots in black? Some Primitive Embroidery? (It does have the feel of linen when washed!) I think I'll come up with a different use and show you later.
