Oilcloth Giveaway

I realized it’s been awhile since I did a giveaway here, so I think it is time!  Today I am giving away two half yard cuts of oilcloth from my personal stash for a total of 1 yard (the two prints are pictured below).  

If you’ve never worked with oilcloth, you are going to love it!  There are so many super-fun projects you can do with the versatile material.  Here are some examples of some great projects made with oilcloth:

So I never bought any. :0(

  123. And I’m a follower!

  127. Hi Lindsay,
    I have been looking forward to making a bike bag out of this material:)
    I love this fabric!
    [email protected]

  128. Oilcloth – I’ve never used it before but after reading the website’s info I’m game to try it!

    I would make a tote for my grandmother’s rollator/walker – she has some hardware store tool belts on it now and really needs something sturdy, personalized, and PRETTY on it instead. I’m sure she would LOVE for me to make her more than one since it may become a second purse to her with her recent knee surgery.
    Or I’d make a market tote for my fruits and veggies. How cool would that be, to have a special, durable, water resistant bag to carry to the farmer’s market and back home!
