    Painter's Canvas Drop Cloth Morphs into Quilted Rug

    The canvas drop cloths make wonderful curtains, drapes, etc. Why not a rug? Thought I'd give it a try. Just sewed a tube with one layer of batting (leaving both ends open), turned, quilted, and fringed the ends. Looks pretty good; hope it wears as well!

    Interesting. I like the finished look, and the idea, but have to say, white on the floor would never fly in my house full of men! Good job!

    Very nice! I make most of my tote bags from painter's canvas which I purchase at Lowe's or Home Depot (don't get the plastic backed stuff!). It machine embroiders really well, no puckering from dense designs, and wears like iron. I've never thought of quilting it, but I'm going to try that next! thanks for the tip.

    ETA, Oh, I just had another thought. i wanted to make some picnic quilts. I think I'm going to try using the canvas as a backing.

    Awesome! It should wear like iron and it looks so comfortable to stand on.
