Darlling FABRIC.....BUT...

You might want to double check with the manufacturer, whether the novelty transportation (trailer) fabric is strong enough/thick enough to be used as UPHOLSTERY fabric. They do have a special sub-listing for Upholstery fabrics. I'd hate to see you make cushion covers out of thin old 100% COTTON, rather than nice heavy quality upholstery material that would stand up to the wear and tear it will undoubetly get.

Curtains would be GREAT, wouldn't they?!!!

Many years ago my wife made curtains for our VW camper. When she finished there was quite a bit of fabric left over. She made herself a skirt and me a jacket. They were neat.

The fabric was a print with all kindsof critters on it.
