craftybear's thread on using floor designs to make quilts reminded me of something my stepmother told me about years ago. She said you can make an interesting flooring with paper grocery bags. You would take all your collected bags and scrunch each of them into a ball. Then open them back up and iron them flat. Now you lay them on your floor(a sub floor made of plywood or? whatever) Next you put many layers of clear sealant finish to seal them into the floor. She said it looks like suede. As I looked at craftybear's thread I thought: Why not make a floor out of fabric instead of paperbags? Can you imagine?
