I just can't help but share this love note that I received along with an order... 

"I was a fan of oilcloth before, but after your book--an Addict! I made a half dozen bins for gifts and now need to make some for myself--you are a marvel and I thank you for sharing and supplying the goods! And chalk cloth--who knew?? Can't wait." K. L.

Check out the oilcloth storage bins from Sewing with Oilcloth. I love that Kelly made a bunch of these for her family and friends love and that she's now making more for herself! What an honor and a compliment!

Have you made something from the book? Please send us some photos and we'll share them with the class. I am hoping Kelly sends me some pictures soon!!!

Sewing with Oilcloth Project: Baby Bibs!

I am finishing up a round of Sewing with Oilcloth (now holiday priced) baby bibs for a local craft show this weekend. How darn cute are they in the new laminated cottons from Riley Blake? When the boy mama's see the blue and cream bibs, they are going to lllooovvveee me!

Got babies on your holiday gift list? Theses bibs are so easy and fun to make. All you need is one fat quarter of laminated cotton for each baby bib, two if you want a coordinating print for the crumb catcher.

Great Idea: Chalk Cloth Tags Times Two

Photo credit: My Very Educated Mother
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 any old time.
