I think you could find better attractive fabs, but if you are going for a odd look then anyone one of the first two would do. the checkers looks to cheesy.

im diggin option two its chill and classy and would be totally fvcking unique. plus those colors are mellow. people that flame the idea of clothe wrapping trim probly havent seen it... its pretty ballerin when done correctly.

i know for a fact that a gay lumberjack and a race car driver picked these out.

Reminds me of a tablecloth at a cheap restaurant

Also, keep in mind that the 77 spray might leak through that fabric and look funky.

I think using a japanese kimono fabric would be pimp

ya #3 wasnt the best. but for a price of 2$ i got the three samples. so i put em all up. it seems that number 2 is the best. I will test fit it to make sure it doesnt leak.

i have pretty much settled for trim 2. the only thing that remains is to buy a can of glue and glue a stip onto something and see if it bleeds.

those thin fabrics will, im toying with the same project and every piece of actual fabric ive tried has. youre gonna need something with a solid backing, not fabric on the back. ive tried 2 kinds of glue and about a dozen different kinds of thinner fabrics that i liked, my next step is to try contact paper.
