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