Book Excerpt: Sewing With Oilcloth

Sewing with Oilcloth Cover CRAFT.jpg
I’ve always loved the look and feel of oilcloth, and have used dozens of yards of the stuff to create four tablecloths over the years. But I’ve always been hesitant to venture further than simply cutting the slick festive fabric into measured flat rectangles. Then I received Kelly McCant’s beautifully presented Sewing with Oilcloth, and was encouraged by her fun color-popping projects. The book has 20 projects, such as seat cushions, a makeup bag, a wallet, a garden apron, a shopping tote, party banners, and a pattern for an adorable laminated cotton snack bag, which McCants has kindly given to us in the PDF below. (Because oilcloth contains phthalates, McCants advises readers to use laminated cotton instead of oilcloth for projects intended for children). Now I think I’m ready to try out my so-so sewing skills, but I better start with her simple tablecloth!
