Well I've been wanting to sew with oilcloth for awhile now. I've been intimidated by this cloth. It's only $8.99 a yard. For some reason I've put this cute table cloth on a pedestal. Well I went for it this weekend. I found a book "Sewing with Oilcloth". It has a range from difficult to not so difficult step by step projects in it. So I made the makeup bag and the wallet. I thought those were two small projects that seemed easy enough to start with. So I bought 3 fat quarters to make these two projects per the books instructions. I have plenty of oilcloth left over to make more! I'm happy about that :) So take a gander at my first attempts with the oilcloth.
