Great Idea... Oilcloth covered chairs

These great oilcloth covered seat cushions are from HGTV Canada's blog! I am loving the Green Mum oilcloth with all that white.  Lovely! 

Modern Country: The Story of a Pair of Country Chair

Is Oilcloth a good for covering seat cushions? Well if you ask me, the proof is in the ketchup.

Sit down and enjoy!

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! 

I just love this Laminated Cotton covered stool that I found over at Prudent Baby, get the how to here!
The bath room is perfect place for laminated cotton.
Sew can do has a great way to make that treasured high chair safe and comfy! What's not to "LOVE" about this fabric, Trumpet Flowers?  I just love her pinning idea, bobby pins and tissue paper!

Catching up!

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!

What about totes?  Yah... totes in laminated cottons are perfect for a tote! Think about taking one of these sweeties to the farmers market, nice!   

pretty new fabrics from Free Sprite and Echino

Now what about this? What about a really rocking bag? Diaper Bags, make up bags and weekender bags are wonderful in laminated cotton.
