Use: The fabric is primarily for decorative purposes like pillows or bags. You can use it to make tablecloths, treads, placemats, curtains, patch pockets, etc.
We have tried: We worked very well with the cotton canvas. It was easy to draw on the material when marking the cuts with tailor's chalk. It was cut and sewn well. This fabric is suitable for beginning seamstresses, does not slip when sewing and "sits under the heel". We used a universal needle with a thickness of 70 for sewing. The edges were slightly frayed, so it is advisable to clean them with a machine with an overlock stitch. Before cutting and sewing, it is necessary to take into account the shrinkage and to precipitate the material in advance. We tried to wash to the temperature recommended by the supplier and darker and more pronounced shades released the color slightly. A small drawback is that the cotton canvas crouches, but on the other hand the canvas is ironed well. Every beginning seamstress should try working with canvas and not start sewing from materials that are more complicated to process and require a certain amount of experience (eg silks, satins, knits ...).

Before sewing, the fabric should be soak in hot water without chemicals, so it shrinks.
