No Sew Drop Cloth Projects

There was a time when I sewed.

I would haul out my forty-one-year-old sewing machine and plop it on the dining table.  Then make a skirt or pillow.   Then put the sewing machine away for months.  That sewing machine still works!

I wasn’t horrible at sewing, just unique.

In the mid 80’s I landed a corporate job while interviewing in a handmade jacket.  It was made from upholstery fabric!!  I bought 2 yards in the discount bin for $2.  Then used newspaper to make a pattern.  It was short waisted with a round collar and basic sleeves.

Today I’m sharing no sew drop cloth projects.  We’ll leave our sewing machines in the closet.

This project combines drop cloth with chalkboard paint and a spindle.  A black chalkboard sail made from a piece of drop cloth.

Can you tell this is an older post?  Anyway, I liked this drop cloth banner.  It was easy to make and unique.

Above, drop cloth was mod podge directly to the wood of a chair.  This chair is has been used for sitting and as a side table.

My smocked table runner is no sew….unless you count the hand sewn smocking! 😕

Drop Cloth Curtains

Outdoor Curtains | Country Design Style |

Our drop cloth outdoor curtains are still hanging on the front porch.  They have hung through snow, rain, wind, sun and still look the same.

Outdoor-Curtains-torn | Country Design Style |

Except the place where this one rubs against the knot on the log.


The rustic smocked drop cloth curtains again are no sewing unless you count the hand sewn smocking. 🙂

Grain Sack Inspired Curtains-2

The grain sack inspired curtains were a blast to make.  The fringe came out perfectly…fringy!

Roman-shade-tutorial-using-drop-cloth | Country Design Style |

This is my latest no sew drop cloth project.  I will be making these for other windows.  We have screens on the inside of our windows.  These roman shades make opening the windows easier.
