You know I am huge fan of the chalk cloth tag all you need is a fat quarter of chalk cloth and your golden. I've made a few in my time and we've got a few tutorials here on our blog, ovals and ornaments!! And, there's a fun one in my book, Sewing with Oilcloth! Today I found two more to add in to the crafty mix! My Very Educated Mother shares not one but two versions to get busy with.

I like this one a lot, it's a fun no-sew project. We love those, don't we? MVEM uses Mod Podge to glue the felt to the back of the chalk cloth. Keep in mind, this won't work when attempting to glue chalk cloth to oilcloth or to another layer of chalk cloth. I've never met a glue that would adhere the two together. The felt works because it will allow the glue to dry. Cleaver!!! I am so getting out some Mod Podge and some scraps of cotton and felt tomorrow and trying this out!!!!
Got a Great Idea? Please share it with us, just contact me at Kelly@modernjune.com any old time.
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.
