Why did you choose this?
Can this fabric be railroaded?
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!
