Here are a few wonderful projects that I have seen floating around the internet and my in box!
One of my lovely customers, also named Kelly, shared her wonderful project with me. She covered her dining room chairs with the Black and White Damask laminated cotton from Micheal Miller. How very pretty and practical is this? Kelly has a few boys that were wreaking havoc on the old fabric covers, now the family can eat spaghetti with out worrying about the stains. Perfect!
Have I been a bad blogger or what? Things have been busy and exciting around here. Oilcloth Addict is selling up a storm, Modern June is cranking out lots of fun tablecloths and other goodies as usual. We are almost done creating the new MODERNJUNE.COM and I have been having fun shopping for new vendors to add to the "Modern June" of it all! Most importantly, I have been having a blast writing patterns for the book! I still can't believe that I am getting the chance to write a book all about sewing oilcloth!!! How cool is that?
Later this week I will have a few customer projects to share with you, but before I get to that, let me share with you all the fun things I found made out of laminated cotton at last months Quilt Market!
When it comes to laminates it's all about the raincoat!
Please note that the recent Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA) prohibits oilcloth garments such as bibs and aprons or toys for children. While there are no heavy metals in oilcloth, it does contain Phthalates, which softens the plastic coating used to manufacture Oilcloth. With this in mind it may not be suited for Snack Bags and Sandwich Wraps especially for children. I suggest using the more family friendly Laminated Cottons. Also note we plan to expand our selection of this new lux oilcloth in the near future.
