In Fabulous Floorcloths you'll find projects for all skill levels - from the novice crafter to the experienced artist. The complete easy-to-follow instructions and step-by-step illustrations help you create exactly what you want. No more paying high prices for custom carpeting or area rugs - canvas floorcloths are inexpensive to make and long-lasting.

Techniques include:



  • Stamping and veining

  • Painting

  • Stenciling

  • Lattice

  • Paper decoupage

From "Rainbow Hopscotch" for the game room, "Victorian Lace" for the bedroom, or "Stained Glass" or "Santa Fe" for the family room, you'll find a floorcloth project to complement any decor.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Kuchinsky, whose design firm specializes in custom-designed decorative accessories, provides basic instructions for creating floorcloths. She begins with advice on selecting a color scheme, the materials needed, preparation and care of the canvas, and a review of decorative methods used in the creation of floorcloths. The 15 projects are labeled simple, intermediate, and advanced and are described with well-illustrated, easy-to-follow instructions. A resource list of U.S. suppliers is provided, an element lacking in Kathy Cooper and Jan Hersey's The Complete Book of Floorcloths (LJ 5/15/97). Purchase wherever there is an interest.
