Let creativity reign! Express yourself using exciting painting techniques like stamping and découpage to make fabulous floorcloths. They're a terrific alternative to a rug and can tie together a decorative scheme or provide the ultimate finishing touch to a room. Produce splendid designs in a rainbow of colors; replicate the appearance of bricks or marble; or paint a jolly Santa Claus and celebrate the holidays in festive style. Stencil flowers that remind you of the pleasures of gardening or get the kids involved and let them "handprint" a motif to jazz up their bedroom. Plus: information on preparation, planning a layout, and hemming, varnishing, and finishing a floorcloth.
“Walking on art—or floorcloths—has been popular since the mid-eighteenth century. Here, the artists of Plaid Studios expose all that the reader needs to know about these decorative coverings. More than 30 patterns are showcased, using 6 familiar craft techniques, from faux finishes to block printing. Comforting, too, are the designs, which exploit the gracefulness or texture of natural things, such as ivy, brick, and marble....Good color photographs.” —Booklist.

I found this book very informative. Being new to making floorcloths it gave me all the information I needed. It didn't just skim over the subject but dealt with it in depth.
