    go to a fabic store and buy some color yardage. they have 60 inch cloth. ask them to give you some of the tubes that they throw away that holds large bolts of cloth.

    Or, sheets, just be sure you iron them or the wrinkles may be a distraction.

    If you have the space to get your subject 8 to 10 feet from the background and a fast enough lens you can use a wide aperture, you won't have to iron.

    Check the walls in your house also. Brick, stone, etc can be interesting.
