Hi all

We're just moving into a new house which is an entire DIY project in the making but firstly we've got to fix up the deck.  It's currently got shade cloth along the walls and on the top beams.  We're going to take that off and replace it with plants (probably wisteria or something.

Anyway, I'm going to be left with about 7 square metres of this shade cloth like this http://www.thenaturalhome.com/shadecloth.htm in a green colour that's a bit tattered around the edges.

I'd hate to throw it out.  Any ideas?

If it's not woven too loosely, it might make for a nice drop cloth. Otherwise, I'd call a manufacturer or retailer and ask them what other uses they've heard of (tell them you've inherited a bunch of it Smiley ).

If it can be cut and sewn you could make a bunch of fabric bags to use at the grocery store.
