I am a NON-SEAMSTRESS. In fact, fabric stores are very intimidating to me! But one of the teachers in my school did some awesome looking walls last year, using fabric. I remember she told me to look for the 60" wide for better coverage, and to buy only cotton (no knit!). That makes sense to me, but I'm wondering if anyone else has any tips for me to consider. I'd love to try this out but don't want to waste money if I mess it up!! Help?
