If this is anything like regular canvas material, check out home building supply places in the paint department. They usually have canvas drop cloths. I bought some to cover car in garage when our daughter brought her cats for a week and the garage was their home.

My sister has uses vinyl flooring remnants to make her floor cloths. She just paints on the backside. These work great, and you really can't tell that it's not the canvas. Also MUCH cheaper. She does alot of these.

I know in the local paper Michaels has a 40 or 50 % off coupon most weeks .

Great idea, Lynelle. I've painted a few floor cloths but would like something firmer as the dogs and cats seem to rumple them up after awhile. Going to try it! Thanks.
