I’m starting to realize that 8 days of Don’t Fear the Fabric is not long enough to share all the fantastic things you can do with Oilcloth!
Which is why I’m happy to bring in another expert….with 20 more Oilcloth ideas and projects….and she’s going to give you some free fabric! Yay!
Did you know there’s an entire book dedicated to Oilcloth—called Sewing with Oilcloth??
It’s by Kelly McCants from the site Modern June and I reviewed it a couple years ago on my site, but had to share it again today….because Kelly is the OILCLOTH ADDICT!
It’s true she is.
That’s how I originally found her. She has an etsy shop called Oilcloth Addict full of all those pretty oilcloth fabrics you love….which you can buy by the 1/2 yard (awwwwesome)
But she’s also a true artisan and business woman…and she makes and sells items at craft fairs and online (check out Modern June)I totally fell in love with this ginormous banner she was commissioned to make by Country Living Magazine for their Summer Fair in New York. I mean look at that thing!….there are 678 flags! Wow. I can’t even imagine cut all those out, much less sewing them together. It’s amazingly adorable.
But another thing I love about Kelly, Modern June, and her Oilcloth Addict fabric shop is that she carries a huge selection of Laminated Cottons.
Here’s a sample:
She even carries some laminated CANVAS. Dude. Maybe I should have used that on my chairs….
So in a nutshell, Kelly knows her oilcloth-laminatey-stuff.
And she wrote a book filled with 20 projects and expert tips for sewing with Oilcloth.
And we want to give some books to you guys!
There are projects for kids, babies, for you, for the house:
She even has instructions to make seat cushions for a chair or couch. I love this old vintage loveseat.
And she has a page for oilcloth “bias tape“…..you know that makes me happy.
So here’s what we’re giving away to TWO winners:
• Sewing with Oilcloth book
• FOUR fat-quarters of oilcloth fabric
• Leave a comment, that’s it.
• Only one entry per person.
• Open to US residents only.
• TWO winners will be picked via random.org
• Giveaway ends Sunday 12/14/14 at 10pm Central time.
Thank you Kelly!
