My First Floorcloth Project

272 Views
I researched the history of floorcloths in America. I decided to experiment with an upholstery fabric remnant. I used all water based products. I will post more about my process later. I am making these for my own home to see how I like them and how they wear. Then I may make it one of my programs for Maggie's Corner Dot Org. I will post more about my process later. This was an experiment and I love how it turned out. The remnant was $6. for 2 yards of 60" wide fabric. It is as heavy as canvas #8 but the weave is not as tight. I did a lot of research for the water based products to use. I wanted to be able to buy basic ingredients to make my own sealer, glazes, colors, and finishes. The finished product feels great, is pliable yet water resistant. I will be able to wipe with damp mop or even scrub with floor brush.
