    I used to have the most beautiful oilcloth bag-I literally wore it out! The store where I bought it is no longer in business! I’m glad to find an oilcloth source and would love to have this book! Thanks very much!

  3. Jane says:

    I have fond memories of the oilcloth covered kitchen table in my grandfathers house. I’d like to make a tablecloth for myself and placemats for my mother. Thanks!

  5. Linda says:

    I nearly bought some oilcoth recently to cover my black glass table I use as my sewing table base, but never got around to it, so I have to dust it occasionally to get rid of the accumulated dust from fabric off-cuts, they show up terribly, I hope the book would inspire me to get on with it and buy some.

  6. Elizabeth McDonald says:

    I am so excited about this book! I am dying to make an oilcloth apron for my Sweetie, who loves to barbeque! Next I want to make an apron for me, and then a market tote bag for carrying home fresh veggies, and then….well, you get the idea! I will be sewing for quite some time!

  7. Sharonnz says:

    Oilcloth is a bit harder to get hold of in NZ. I’ve made backyard bunting and we use an oilcloth tablecloth. Would love to make my nieces make-up bags for Christmas.

  8. Leslie says:

    I would love to make oilcloth make-up and tote bags. Would love to win this book! Thanks for the giveaway!

  9. Oooh I hope it’s me! I really, really want to make an oilcloth market bag – I’m always switching from carrying vegies that get the bottom all dirty to throwing in my yoga clothes. I’d love to just be able to wipe that sucker out. :)

  10. Becky says:

    I want to make a raincoat! And a bag! Thank you for the giveaway!

  11. deb mersman says:

    I have always wanted to try oilcloth, but have never done so. This post and the book are inspiring me to try a tablecloth.

  12. jojoebi says:

    I have only sewn a couple of smallish things with oilcloth my favourite is a reversible apron for my son who loves to paint and help in the kitchen (not usually at the same time). I am not very confident in using oilcloth because it is quite expensive here and I worry about messing it up, with the tips in this book I think I would be a bit more adventurous!

  13. Happiness is... says:

    Oh boy, I would like to make a oc/cc banner, probably a bag for me, and I don’t know, maybe a booster too?!?

    Thanks for the opportunity!


  14. I want to make a passport protector, slim-purse….I have it all planned out in my head!!! Just need this book to give me courage!

  15. Allison C says:

    I recently bought some oilcloth, but I haven’t used it yet. I have big plans to make baby bibs and hopefully some little zipper bags. It would be great to win this so I can get some advice and patterns.

  16. Kimmy says:

    I made the newspaper weaving Girl Scout seats which were covered with oil cloth. I loved that seat! Then made them with my daughter’s troop. I would like to make a bag, another seat! for me and my husband. I’d love to try any of the ideas in the book! Crossing my fingers…. :) Thanks!

  17. Henria O. says:

    This looks like an amazing book! Though I have never sewn with oilcloth, I am so anxious to try it out! I think my first project would be a tote! Thanks for the giveaway!

  24. kelli says:

    I’ve made a “splat mat” backed with flannel that we carry in the car for impromptu picnics!

  25. VickiT says:

    I love this book already from all I’ve seen so far during this blog tour. It looks like THE go to book for tips about sewing with the laminates and oilcloth. And the projects I’ve seen so far look like so much fun. I think the first I would love to try making are the little baskets that I just saw on another of the blogs from the tour. Those look like a great idea since they’ll be easily wiped clean. Of course, a little apron for my 4 yr old Granddaughter to use in school for arts and crafts would be a great idea to make too.

  26. joyce says:

    Congratulations on the publishing of your book!! I hope I win a copy to try out all of the lovely projects. Thanks!

  27. Megan says:

    I have made a little wall saving guard for my bunny’s cage. I want to make a nice apron for myself.

  28. Rachel says:

    I’d like to make a tablecloth out of oilcloth

  29. ellen says:

    Back in the days when dinosaurs roamed the earth I made a little seat at Girl Scout camp. What I want now is placemats!

  30. SewLindaAnn says:

    Never having worked with oilcloth, or even bought any, I’d like to start simple and make a couple of placemats or a simple tote. I’ll have to check out her shop to see the fabrics.

  31. Julia C. says:

    I have actually been seeing alot of oilcloth projects and mentions of it lately, I think I would like to make either a tablecloth in a great print or some table mats and maybe a runner or something… I am definately going to explore this new trend

  32. Lily says:

    hmmm. I really don’t know much about this fabric? Could u make napkins out of it? (does that sound dumb, I don;t know) Maybe I would make a market bag, I have been wanting a HANDMADE one forever, I have like 10 of the cheap ones you get for a buck at joanns ect… but I have seen a whole lotta beautifulness on blogs, and it is a great way to recycle and not fill up the dump with plastic bags, I think they should stop using plastic bags all together and everyone have their own bags..maybe I will write the presi… Okay enough rambling. Congrats on your book girlie… I am sure it rocks and I cant wait to buy it +or maybe win it+

  36. Kathy says:

    I have a tote bag started – but not finished – from oilcloth. I was having trouble with finding the right foot for my machine. I now have the desire to go find all the pieces and start sewing again!

  37. Joey says:

    Oh so excited about this one! We got a old restaurant booth when they gutted the cafeteria at the UW Hub and I would love to paint it and make a couple of the cushions for it to sit pretty in our dining room!

  38. Iryna says:

    OC is a great medium! I never ever made anything with it, but really want to.

  39. Janet says:

    Very soon this web site will be famous among all blog
    viewers, due to it’s nice articles

  40. My spouse and I stumbled over here by a different website and thought I may as well check things out.
    I like what I see so i am just following you. Look forward to exploring your web page yet again.

  41. I’ve been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be
    a lot more useful than ever before.

  42. [link] says:

    My problem is that she still lives with her for financial
    reasons only, I guess this means he couldn t afford a place of his own
    decisions. Careful with them since they contain moves that have already been made to recognize interactive games as
    art worthy enough for government funding. You can set it by the average bitrate that video marketing uk
    statistics you want to know what itscapabilities are before you use
