I learned how to sew with oilcloth last week from a friend.  Here is my first bag.  Of course, I had to go out and buy lots more oilcloth to make more STUFF!.

First it was a set of placemats.  Then I talked my daughter, Carolyn,  into buying more oilcloth and bringing it when she came to visit.  She made another  set of placemats.  The great thing about the them is is they can be wiped off and they are reversible.
Then my granddaughter and daughter-in-law came to visit and Carolyn and I were off making more bags.    Danae's bag has pockets on the inside and outside.  
And here is Katie with her new bag.  

Tomorrow I am off to cover composition notebooks, and anything else that doesn't move!  The great thing about oilcloth is you can use all the small pieces left over for coasters or wallets.  

Want oilcloth?  You can find it at El Interior or Zinger's in Austin, Valli and Kim in Dripping Springs, or Things In A Room in Fredericksburg.
