I need a fabric to drape walls of a barn for a wedding. Is muslin sheer enough or do I need tulle?
A shopper on Jan 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This muslin is not sheer. Tulle would work, or try cotton scrim, which has a more natural look while still being sheer and drapable. It is a common draping fabric for barn weddings! We suggest ordering a sample to see if it would work for you.

Can I use unbleached muslin as a tablecloth for rustic wedding or is it too see through for covering white tables?
A shopper on Jun 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I think this muslin would be fine to use as a tablecloth. I made a very large drape out of this muslin to cover a black, painted wall. It was opaque and worked very well. I was very pleased and recommend it for this purpose.
Is this a good muslin for making pattern pieces or is there a better one?
A shopper on Apr 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this is great for pattern pieces, especially if you want a wide fabric.
Fabric closest to the antique crisp bed sheets of yesteryear?
A shopper on Dec 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The fabric is very thin. I used it to make valances for windows. I was expecting it to be heavier.
is this thick enough to not see through?
A shopper on Nov 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It is not transparent, but it is thin.
We use it for a scenic good. Upstage for lights to shine on it behind other scenery.
Would this unbleached muslin be good to use for pipe and drape to hide the wall of an event venue? I like the 125" because I want it to be 8-10 feet tall. Is it heavy enough to pillow/billow at the bottom when it hits the floor? Does it look cheap?
A shopper on Nov 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I don't think it looks cheap though it is not heavy fabric. It's rather really light. Also it might be slightly transparent depening on the lights
Could this be used for shabby chic curtains ?
A shopper on Nov 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They could, but without a lining they may not have enough drape. We recommend ordering a sample to be sure that it will work for your project.
Hello, and thanks in advance. :-)

Will the 125" Unbleached Muslin Fabric (Product ID: 8020) vastly, or completely, hide the off-white vinyl blackout shade material that I would cover for decorative purposes? The idea is to decorate and hide the vinyl.

If probably not, could you recommend a solid, off-white fabric that would have the density that would do so?

I would probably order a sample if you tell me it, or some other might, or probably would work.

John L on Jul 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this muslin should completely hide an off-white color behind it.
I am wanting to paint a forest backdrop. Will this muslin work to be painted as that? It will be on a stage for a back drop for Vacation Bible School.
A shopper on Jun 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We use this fabric for backdrops. It is thin, so you'll want to plan to prime it before you paint your design.
Hi, I have purchased from you before. Many years ago. I don't remember what i purchased. but, is the 125" muslin, the width, and the length, is whatever I need?
I am just trying to figure out the dimension of the material, on the bolt.
EXAMPLE. if i wanted 5 yards, that would be 15' X 125"?
A shopper on Jun 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, if you order 5 yards, the piece will be 15 feet long and 125 inches wide.
Do you think this would work as bed sheets? soft enough or too rough? Better after laundry?
A shopper on Dec 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It may be too rough, but it depends on your personal preferences. Laundering it does soften it somewhat. We recommend ordering a sample to be sure that it will work for your project.
Would this work to make into tea/dish towels? I had some unbleached organic Cotton fabric that I’ve been using but can’t find it anymore.
A shopper on Nov 20, 2017
I would like to make fashionable home painted and printed sarongs for family to wear (wrap around skirts) and in terms of dying and natural fall will muslin work and if which in particular? I would like something fine but with some weight.
A shopper on Nov 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Muslin is typically used for draping and rough drafts of clothing, so it may work. We recommend ordering samples of a few different fabrics to see which will work best for your needs.
I would like to create temporary "rooms" in a large 800 sq ft concrete basement using fabric to hang from structural steel ceiling beams 9 ft high. Thought this may be a cool way to group rooms of furniture temporarily. Office, den, dining . . etc. will this work? I may want to paint on the fabric. If yes, which muslin do you recommend? Thanks!
A shopper on Sep 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This would work. We recommend prewashing your fabric.
I am making some sound panels for therapy offices, bleached v unbleached?
And is the fabric smooth or a bit coarse (more sound absorbent)?
A shopper on Aug 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Bleached or unbleached won't make a difference in terms of sound dampening. You may want to consider a fabric that's a bit thicker as it will absorb the sound a bit better. Any of these would work:
I need a backdrop for my product shots that will be uploaded onto my website. I will hang it in front of my window for natural lighting. Will this be see through or enough thickness where it will look great in photos?
A shopper on Jul 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Muslin is popular for backdrops. It would be best used a a diffuser in this situation. Shooting into sunlight will give you a back-lit image which won't look too great.
I am wanting to dye either muslin material or 90 grade cheesecloth to make napkins for my wedding. Which material would work better for a very dainty/organic looking napkin?
A shopper on Jun 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We don't recommend using cheesecloth for napkins. Linen is popular, you won't go wrong with muslin or a cotton broadcloth! Just be sure to double check the content of the fabric in relation to the type of due you're using. Some dyes won't react with synthetic blends.
We live in nearly 100-year-old chestnut log cabin, with exposed ceiling beams I'd like to cover/drape to billow (the width 125" in why I am interested in muslin). Would this work?
A shopper on May 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We don't see why not. You may want to consider a more sheer fabric like chiffon.
Can the 125" unbleached muslin be used for a picnic table cloth? Does unbleached muslin take dye well or should we use bleached muslin?
A shopper on May 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it can be used for a picnic tablecloth. Both the bleached and unbleached will take dye well. The natural color may result in slightly duller colors.
Could I use this to make a men's shirt? Like, an ordinary men's dress shirt for example?
A shopper on Apr 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Technically you could but it is not meant for that. This is for mock ups of clothing, theatrical flats, quilt backs, and period undergarments.
Would this work for covering theatrical flats?
A shopper on Mar 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Streching canvas will be better
Yes, you can use this.

BEST ANSWER: This particular muslin usually comes in bolts of 50 yards.
Can the 125" unbleached muslin fabric make a bed cover for a king size bed and pillow covers for a shabby chic look?
A shopper on Oct 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is my opinion that it could be but just an FYI is that you can see thru it if it is a single layer. I 'd recommend that your pillows and duvet have no print or if they do line the fabric. If you are asking is 125" enough, I do believe that the dimensions of a king size duvet is 102x86. I'd love to see the results!
