30 Things to Make with Drop Cloths

A canvas drop cloth is actually a fabulous craft supply. Look at all the way you can use it. Some, you don't even need to sew!

There's something about the natural and neutral look of drop cloth canvas that has attracted crafters and designers for the last few years.  I've been working with it for my next Craftaholics Anonymous post this month so it's been on my mind and I thought I'd pull up some more inspiration for you.
