........and although this might seem too obvious, you do have to cut a 3" notch into the Fabric to start the tearing process.

The way it was described by 12 loser12, it sounded like he was simply trying to pull it apart

That would be bad..........

Haha, no I cut a starter notch, either way, hopefully it won't matter, I'll let you know how it works out after I hang it later today

@MississippiMan

Is Sy's Fabrics still doing business today? I ask because their website still has a copyright notice of 2012...

Thanks in advance!

Yes.

My site has a Copyright notice dating back to 2006, yet here I am.

Give 'em a call.
