    Grandparents used anything they had, so I don't see why not. I don't know how heavy the fabric is, so you just need to consider the pattern your using & how hard it will be to work with that particular fabric.

    It makes a nice backing for table runners made from wool or felt!

    You can always try it on a smaller project like a runner or topper to see if you like working with it :D:D:D
