would burning the edges to seal them work with your fabric?
LOL... I am so uncrafty, I'm sure that would end badly! And I paid $20 for a yard of this stuff (because I misunderstood the sale price) and I'd probably end up with a pile of ashes!
I am afraid when I staple it it will ravel and slip right around the staples. I think I'm going to try to hem it and look for something I can sew onto it -- some kind of tape? -- then I could staple through the tape?
Mom and I recovered a little bench that goes at the foot of DD's bed with fabric matching her bedding, and that went really well, but the bench underneath was particle board (easy to staple) and the underside of the piano bench is hard maple... no way i can staple into that. I'm going to have to figure out something to put under it to staple into.
