Oilcloth Wallets

24 Jan

Friday is my sewing day, and a friend recently asked me to make a wallet for her, inspired by this I made another today.



Think my old one is going and this will take its place:)

Enjoy your weekend.



De-stashing Oilcloth Sale

24 Jan

For someone who claims to have NO stash of fabrics, I seem to have uncovered a huge pile of oilcloth which I’ve been hoarding for far too long;)  So here’s the deal, I would love to share some of this oilcloth to any of my readers and the likes, who might fancy a go to sew with some of it.  It does make up really pretty bags, cases, aprons and more – let your imagination run with it.  I have a few tutorials on things I’ve made as well as some tips on how to sew with it.  Best to use a teflon foot as it has a tendency to stick and can be detrimental to your sewing machine, but failing that, some masking tape stuck to the underside of your machine foot does the trick pretty well.




I’ve listed my oilcloth on etsy and will be selling it in bundles – have a look see if you are interested…

Thanks for stopping by.

Oilcloth Tennis Racquet Cover

A request for a tennis racquet cover in oilcloth saw my morning time today:)  Easy to make, bright and fun.

Hope you are enjoying your week,


Oilcloth Shoulder Bag

18 Sep

I chose a little project today – small one away having fun in her new school gave me the opportunity for some undivided attention to make this oilcloth bag.

It was fun to do and satisfying to finish in the time she was away.

Hope you are all having a good week.
