About This Product:

Are you an artist interested in making a canvas floorcloth? Let’s get that art out of your head and onto the floor! Maybe you just didn’t know where to start and have seen some videos on YouTube. Maybe even my videos! Here I want to give you step-by-step instructions from buying the right canvas to sewing your finished canvas rug. 

Then you’ll have the empty canvas where you can pour out your dreams. Floorcloths need to be made correctly to hold up to foot traffic. Start your project the right way to have a lasting piece of art for your floor.

I was also fascinated by the idea of canvas rugs/floorcloths. I had been looking for something to put on my floors in my home in the jungle on the beach. When I found out about them, I rushed out to buy a book and looked at the book for OVER A YEAR.

It just seemed too big, too complicated, even though I had all the instructions.

But I finally found the canvas, the paints, and varnish and after years of trial and error, I now have rugs in hundreds of homes in Costa Rica, the US, and Canada. I even have them in hotels in Costa Rica and Aruba!

After years of posting videos on YouTube and Facebook, I got the message. You were asking me to help you make your own canvas floorcloth.

So here is my answer. 
By the end of this course you'll have purchased the exact canvas you need to make a durable canvas rug that will last you for many years

You'll have treated the canvas so when you sew and paint it won't warp

You'll have the beautifully mitered corners that make these canvas rugs so durable
With your resources for canvas and a material list for each video, it will be easy to follow along,

You'll even get added bonuses on how to iron and the first thing we paint on a canvas rug.

Don’t wait a year, or two or three before you get that art on the floor. If not now when? I have tips on how to use less space. You don’t need a huge studio. You don’t need an industrial sewing machine.

All you need is to start step by step with me. Let’s do it! Click the button and get your first video.

Warning: Canvas rugs are addictive. 60% of my sales are repeat clients. Once you have one here, you’ll want one there, there, and there. Just sayin…

I'm here to help get the art out of your head and onto the floor.

I stumbled onto the art of making canvas rugs, or floorcloths 15 years ago. I purchased a book on how to make them and found the materials available to me in Costa Rica. Canvas rugs were such a perfect solution to life in the tropics but it's taken years for me to educate people about the what, where, and why of canvas rugs. 

After 12 or so years of posting on Facebook and Youtube, people started asking me to teach them how to make canvas rugs. 

This is my answer to the call.

I have since made canvas rugs in exclusive designs for hundreds of homes in Costa Rica, the US, and Canada with rugs featured in hotels in Costa Rica and Aruba.

Although there are many videos on my channel on Youtube these are the first consolidated collection of videos including how to make sew and paint canvas rugs 

I am always open to communication and respond to my email readers and YouTube followers with gusto. As much as I love art I love people more.
