Fabric By The Yard $5.56

This is a 19" wide canvas weight cloth.

Woven out of thick, short staple, linen thread - this fabric is made to scrunch up after the wash and dry. It shrinks about 18% on the weft of the fabric ( widthwise) and 16% of the warp of the fabric ( lengthwise). This gives it the needed density for home textiles.

At a canvas weight of 9.1 ounces a square yard this 100% linen is a fabulous utilitarian fabric that you will love for its simple rustic beauty and strength. Items made from this fabric will wear like iron and last decades.

Yarn Dyed fabrics are made using threads that are dyed separately before being woven. This allows for a large variety of patterns and designs that stand out from the base fabric color.

Narrow width cloth is great for:

  • Shopping bags
  • Purses
  • Placemats
  • Runners
  • Decorative pillows
  • Kitchen towels
  • Appliance covers
  • Potholders
  • Cushions

Love this

I made placemats and a tote bag. I'm wondering if there's a blue that matches for some napkins?

Love this heavy linen

For those who find this too wrinkly for towels, you must wash this linen many times, I would say at least 8 times, I throw them in with every wash cycle over a few weeks and then you get the most wonderful, soft and absorbent dish towels ever. It takes time, but it is worth it. I just ordered several pieces from the doggie bag to make dishcloths and placemats and will use some unwashed to make shopping bags.

I'm not happy at all with this it's so hard almost like a plastic the only thing it is good for is making patio cushions or covering outdoor chairs it is not good or fit for inside work.I definitely will not be ordering this again. And the stripe is really a good 2 inches wider so not even what I was wanting or hoping for. Just not pleased at all with this purchase ,will not be doing it again.

Christmas is coming

Can't wait to try this type of linen fabric out. I have never worked with canvas quality before this purchase. Excited. I am planning to pre wash x 3 and line dry before attempting, as this method has been successful in the past with my linen projects. Grey tone is slightly darker than anticipated but won't effect the project/

These simple beauties won't disappoint. They are a delight!

Such a disappointment. I jumped on the bandwagon, pulled in by the romanticized presentation of 'rustic' linen. Yes, linen is a great fabric, however this fabric is a piece of work. I purchased 9 yards - 3 of 3 different patterns, happily thinking I'd home-make some gorgeous linen kitchen towel to give for Christmas. After the making and washing, I can sadly say that will not be happening. Yes, the fabric looks cute and I was so excited about the 'matchy' stripes. And yes, the fabric is rustic and sturdy. HOWEVER, even after 3 washings the towels come out of both washer and dryer with the fabric deeply contracted, tight, balled, bunched, shriveled....just look at the photo. In order to make these both presentable and functional, you have to wrestle with each towel, pulling and yanking them into some sort of rectangle. Then spend several minutes ironing each one. Only then are they somewhat agreeable. I'm not going to do that each time they are washed and I certainly wouldn't impose that on someone else giving them as a gift. Perhaps this fabric should be given the 'softened' treatment that some of the other linen fabrics are given. I don't know. I DO know that this has been an incredible waste of money and time.

Just adore this beautiful striped linen canvas in all colors. Love the texture, the feel, the smell...and as a designer and a photographer, it is so design and photogenic!

Hand towels for the kitchen and some napkins. I love using them. I watched a tutorial on YouTube on how to create the mitered corners, so the backside of the napkins looks very professional. I am going to try and make more napkins and towels with heavy weight linen rather than canvas and see how those turn out.

Hand towel for the kitchen. So easy to make as I just folded over each of the long edges and top stitched.
