Why did you choose this?
Would this fabric do for seat pillows on indoor kitchenette chairs or is it to stiff and plastic feeling?
BEST ANSWER: I used this fabric to recover seats on 4 bistro table chairs (indoor breakfast room). Worked great, and has held up.
For Swavelle / Mill Creek Outdoor Splish Splash Marina Fabric, I see this says Width: 54" - this is my first sewing project ever - at age 49! So, since I know I need at least 58" width for two fabric window valences I'm making (the other 4 valences are 29" widths), will this be wide enough or will I need to sew two together to get the width I need??
BEST ANSWER: You can sew the fabric together to make a wider piece. Our tutorial on making a duvet cover has a section on how to match up the pattern (step 2): www.onlinefabricstore.net/makersmill/how-to-make-a-duvet-comforter-cover
We used a fusible tape to hold the fabric in place, but you could also use double sided tape or pins.
Since the width of the fabric is just a little narrower than you need, you can also consider doing a 2 inch border in a solid color so you don't have to match up the pattern.
As to whether this fabric would work for a valance, it depends what type of valance. It might not be the best for a drapey valance, but it would be great for a more structured valance. Good luck!
