I have a discovery to share with you. The cotton canvas tarp! You can get these Here.
I can’t tell you how versatile these are. They come in all dimensions. You’re going to rip it up anyway, so get the dimension that suits you best.
A few things I have made with this versatile material are puppets, patches, wall hangings and book covers. I’ll show some photos of these, but first I want to share the quilt. These are drawn with embroidery and paint onto a 12 x 12 inch square of 9 oz Cotton Canvas Tarp material. I put the date that I start each square prominently in the design just for fun.
