Oilcloth project possibilities

12 July 2012

Don’t you just love when something lives up to your expectations? I’d been eying a store – On Board Fabrics – for years, every time we drove past it on our way to and from our cottage in Maine. It’s housed in an old barn, and it looked so cute from the outside! This past week we finally stopped, and I’m so happy we did.

I was tempted by many different patterns, but I walked out with just a yard and a half of the adorable oilcloth above. Isn’t it awesome?? Now to decide what to do with it. I’m thinking placemats or perhaps an outdoor tablecloth, but am open to your suggestions. I’ve also done a little project scouting, in case any of y’all have some oilcloth on your hands!

I am crazy about Oilcloth! i am known to find weird patterns and lengths at thrift stores…and usually have no idea how to use it! Thanks for the ideas:)
