I initially bought vintage linen sheets from a seller in France. I drive by it every time I am headed out to Home Depot. ... UPDATE MUST READ: I have heard from several readers that the brand of drop cloth you buy makes all the difference. You may find you have to spray down the entire surface with a mist of water after spot cleaning to eliminate water marks when drying, and that is a pain in the butt. I appreciate and read all your comments. But is that really a worth while savings? Getting great results and saving money is so satisfying. OK, now that you know what to expect from a canvas drop cloth let’s look at how it compares to canvas yardage. I love this rug! This is not a heavyweight fabric per the package description. If you want a true grain sack look, a drop cloth is a fair approximation but it’s not perfect. You will need to bleach the cut pieces in batches in a top loading washing machine, which can take 4 to 8 hours per batch depending on how white you want them. Remember, you’re not dealing with linear yardage, and each cloth has seams and hemmed edges that you will have to work around or incorporate into your slipcover design. It’s grainy and imperfect. If you bleach your drop cloth DO use a neutralizing agent to stop the bleach from destroying your fabric. After washed, it has moderate to high level of wrinkle.

On the other hand, canvas at $5 per yard might be a super deal when you factor in ease of use, quality and durability. You did a great job making your slip cover. I had big plans for these two tables that I got free from my neighbor's garbage . It will yield approximately 7.5 yards. Could you not then use one piece for the whole back/front center and use another or two for the arms/cushions? Pre-shrink your drop cloth. You did MMS proud, that's for sure! Wash the drop … I can’t wait to see what you do with that #12 weight natural canvas. Below are yardage yields (before preshrink) for the two most common drop cloth sizes used for chair and sofa slipcovers: 9 ft x 12 ft drop cloth =  roughly 99″ wide x 135″ long finished size. It has a smoother surface (less grainy) than what you get with a 10 oz or 12 oz natural canvas.
