Your going to love this one! Yet another pretty and practical project from Skip to My Lou! Cindy, I couldn't agree with you more " ...this handy little receipt wallet will do the the trick! -- personal receipts on one side, business receipts on the other. Really it could have many uses --- coupons, lists, checkbook cover, etc!"
For a complete rundown on how to make this great project head on over to Skip to my Lou. Then head over to our Etsy shop and pick up two Fat Quarters and get sewing!
FYI, this green print she used, Green Mums, is one of our new prints due to arrive next Monday!

It's been a long time since I added any new oilcloth prints to the shop, way too long! I figure who better to help me than you all, my loyal blog readers. Here is what I am thinking, the shop needs some more floral and fruit prints and maybe a strip or two. Take a look and let me know what you like...
I have been wanting to carry one of the mum prints for some time now, which color do you like best?
Since spring and summer are coming, I want some more fruity patterns. Which print do you like best? Well talk color later!
classic oilcloth apples
teapots and fruit
doilies and fruit
I have wanted to get some strips in the shop as well, I want all of these! Which blue is better, light or dark?
Thanks for your help. I want to order soon so leave me a comment today!
When sewing with oilcloth I find it very helpful to use a longer stitch length, this helps because the oilcloth has a tendency to get sticky under the pressure foot. Normally, a stitch length of 2 is best, but for oilcloth you will want to up your setting to a 3-4 stitch length. When you combine this trick with the use of a speciality presser foot or tricked out presser foot you should have great success creating a fun oilcloth project! Happy sewing!!!
How cute is this craft table? I want one too!! Sandy, from 521 Lake Street, has done a great job making over a old thrift table into a wonderful craft table. And she used my favorite oilcloth print, I just love those perky cherries.
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.
