    I bought a canvas dropcloth from the local hardware store that was almost twice the required size (yes, I briefly thought I could make two puppet theatres!) and was pleased with myself as it seemed a cheap way to get a huge piece of cloth…..

    but no.

    The dropcloth was pieced from about 5 smaller bits and had ugly seams all over it and no one piece was big enough for the theatre background. It also had a great big stencilled logo on a corner which was not visible from the outside packaging.

    Luckily spotlight had a sale and I bought some cotton canvas. Now if only I was inclined to do some painting I’ve got a dropcloth….

    Oh, I’m so sorry! I bought several at Home Depot and they were quite nice, so there must be different types/brands? I wish I still had the packaging so I could tell you what it was!

    This is good to know! I plan on making one of these very soon for the kids for Christmas.

    We own quite a few canvas dropcloths and they’re all in once piece. They all came from home depot or Lowe’s. You can get them with or without a plastic paint proof backing, though, and you probably don’t want that for the puppet theater.
