Sewing with Oilcloth

This giveaway is now closed. Thanks!

Modern June, also known as Kelli McCants, has grown her business by leaps and bounds since we first noticed her cute, vintage-look oilcloth aprons over five years ago. In addition to selling a wide variety of oilcloth fabrics Kelli is now out with a new book, Sewing with Oilcloth. The book includes twenty patterns for totes, bibs, tablecloths and more, and Kelli shares all of the sewing tips she’s learned over her years of working with oilcloth too. Today Kelli shows us how several of the projects in the book can be made with cotton (our specialty!), and how many of the patterns we have in the shop can also work with oilcloth.

Comment for a chance to win Sewing with Oilcloth. Kelli will send one winner a signed copy of the book along with some fat quarters of oilcloth and laminated cotton! Do you love oilcloth and the newer laminated cottons? Have you sewn cute raincoats or splat mats or more? Is your machine baffled by oilcloth, leaving you with more questions than finished products when you try to sew (Kelli can help!)? Do you have any patterns you’re excited to try in oilcloth? Tell us your thoughts and we’ll select a winner later this week.

While Sewing with Oilcloth is all about sewing with oilcloth, there are a bunch of patterns that can be made out of cotton! Here are my top 3 projects that are screaming out for some Sew,Mama,Sew! fabric!

1. Garden Apron
How wouldn’t love a garden apron out of the this brand new cotton fabric line, Natura by Alexander Henry. With all the prints available in this collection you can use a different print for each layer of the very functional apron. I would substitute the oilcloth binding for your own handmade bias or the ready-made bias you have in your stash. You’ll want 1/2” double fold bias to complete your apron.
2. Custom Seat Cushion
I am completely ga-ga for the cotton canvas from Kokka! I can see a lovely kitchen nook adorn with fruity seat cushions. The seat cushion pattern in Sewing with Oilcloth uses snaps instead of a zipper; I did this so the big foam cushion could easily slide in and out of the finished oilcloth cover. So if you’re like me and you are zipper-phobic then you’ll love the seat cushion pattern. This is one of the many customized patterns in the book. I walk you through how to make your own pattern so you can use your measurements to make a one-of-a-kind project.
3. Mommy and Me
I can’t tell you how much I love these little Field Friends! I think my Mommy and Me apron set would be totally adorable in this fun organic cotton. Just think about all the memories you’ll be cooking up!

There are also lots of fun patterns that could easily be made up in oilcloth, especially if you use the tips in the book:

1. The Eva Sewing Basket from Hemma Design would be so great made in oilcloth. By doing so the you could use it for paints, just wipe it all down when it gets messy.

2. I love every single one of Amy Butler’s patterns, but I’ve really had my eye on these Gum Drop Pillows, I want to make a few with her laminated cotton. That way my kids can eat in the living room with out me fussing all the time. Don’t forget she has two great patterns for laminated cotton rain coats. Love!

3. I just love the Cover Up sewing machine cover from Empty Bobbin, it would be so darn cute made in oilcloth! Color blocking with oilcloth would be really fun, think floral, dots and gingham all mixed up together.

  90. I would love to learn how to sew a raincoat, but all the other projects sound equally interesting. I’ve never sewn with oilcloth before as it seems a little scary as a fabric to me.

  91. Loullabelle says:

    I have to agree with several of the comments here, I’ve always loved the look and practicality of oilcloth but always felt too intimidated to try making anything with it!! Would love a chance to put some of my oilcloth demons to rest.

  92. lisa says:

    Oh how wonderful! I would love this! I have really wanted to make placemats and tableclothes with oilcloth. I love the idea of making the sewing machine cover with it. I think I would also like to make a flat screen monitor cover as well. Ooh and banners galore!!!!!!! Thanks for the giveaway!

  93. duff says:

    I’m almost ready to dive into this area! I have seen some really cute oilcloth at my LQS but I’m just not sure what to do with it! This book looks like it will answer that question!

  94. Alison H. says:

    Like many of the commenters, I’ve never sewn with oilcloth before. I’m not sure why (other than the usual financial restraints on my fabric purchases!), because I’ve seen several projects I’ve really wanted to try with it. I work with babies/toddlers/young children so the water resistance and easy cleaning of oilcloth are very appealing factors for me. This book looks like it would be a great introduction to oilcloth projects. Thanks for this giveaway opportunity!

I am VERY interested in this awesome book and in some great fabric to work with!

  99. Anya says:

    I’ve always had the idea of using oil cloth to make throw “rugs” for my wood floors. I hadn’t thought much beyond that until I saw this book!

  100. Jens says:

    I’ve done some sewing with oilcloth already – for example a large market tote which could be wiped from the inside and a swimming tote which had an inner pocket lined in oilcloth, so wet swimming trunks or towels wouldn’t wet the other things in the tote.

  101. Linda S says:

    Oilcloth and laminated cotton is definitely an area I want to get in to since I have a 19 month old and a second due in November. Bibs, splat mats, changing pads, wet bags, and pillows not to mention that raincoat idea sounds pretty cool. I have no experience sewing with laminated cotton or oilcloth so the book would certainly be helpful.

  135. Alana says:

    I have some cherry print oil cloth that I have been saving for a rainy day. Maybe literally? Love the raincoat idea.

  136. Lesley says:

    I must have that book! There’s so much I want to do with oilcloth. I would definitely make the sewing basket, the pillows, and the machine cover. Ah! Those pillow look like so much fun!

    LOVE Oilcloth, there is not a more fun fabric to work with!

  147. I love the idea of making the Eva sewing basket with oilcloth. I am in a painting class and it would be perfect for carrying my supplies.

  148. Sarah B says:

    Hi! I’m new to your blog, and new to the sewing world. I registered for and received a sewing machine for my wedding (two months ago), and am having a lot of fun learning how to use it (I’ve made lots of curtains for our new house.) My husband just started his first year of medical school and I spend many long hours at home while he is in school and studying, so sewing is a great way for me to keep myself busy. I am always looking for new projects, and have never sewn with Oilcloth, but would love to learn! I’d love to have Kelli’s book (and more importantly, her advice) to begin to learn! Thanks!

  149. Kris says:

    I’ve never sewn with oilcloth, would love to try!

  150. jessica w. says:

    I love the idea of the sewing bag,but I think my first need would be a new makeup bag with an oil cloth interior

  151. Wendy D. P. says:

    I’ve been eyeing laminated cottons for a while now! I’d love to win this book and try my hand working with it!

  152. Qwilt says:

    Wow, looks fantastic. I haven’t sewn with oilcloth, but not having done something has never stopped me before! Jane

  153. Erin says:

    Truthfully, I am a little scared to work with oilcloth/laminate cottons. The fact that you should not pin then makes me nervous that they won’t line up when I start sewing. I really want to try the Bapron (Baby Apron) at Craftiness is Not Optional. I think it is so cute and would work great for my 16 month old during dinner time.

  161. Rhonda says:

    Confession time…I have not tried to sew with oilcloth or laminated cotton because when laminated cotton first came out I was watching some show and they said it was only for the very experienced. That has left me very intimidated….and while that is out of character for me, I have never tried. They are so beautiful and I can imagine that ripping a seam in them would ruin them. That would break my heart, so I just haven’t tried.

    what an exciting book! I often lust over beautiful vibrant oilcloths but never buy because I think “but what could I make with that?” despite the fact that oilcloth seems so useful and practical, and now here’s the inspiration.

    Oh my goodness! I just asked my favorite little fabric store where to buy oilcloth and they had no idea! I have 2 little girls and I have been chomping at the bit to make stuff out of oilcloth/laminated cotton. Like…I don’t know slip covers, sheets, rugs…that’s my mind set with toddlers! πŸ™‚ Really, I don’t even know where to start, I am just SO excited that I checked this blog today!!

  223. Kris says:

    I love oil cloth. It’s so vintage!

  252. Ellen says:

    The only “sewing” I’ve done with oil cloth is to zigzag around a hole cut in the middle of an outdoors tablecloth, so the umbrella stand would fit through it (pretty lame, I know). I’d love to learn how to make my own tablecloths, cushion covers etc.
    Thanks for the contest!

  253. Tas says:

    I have oilcoth and I am afraid to use it. It sits on the shelf neglected. I could use some help…lots of help.

  254. Kerri says:

    I’ve wanted to sew with Oil cloth for a long time, but have been hesitant because I don’t really know how. This would be perfect. With Christmas coming too I bet there are lots of gifts that could be made out of oil cloth πŸ™‚

  255. Sue D says:

    I have not sewn with oilcloth before and am intrigued!

  256. Brie says:

  267. margaret frisch says:

    I’m so excited to see this book! Even if I don’t win, though it would be so nice, I’m definitely going to pick it up. I’m so attracted to this material – maybe reminds me of my childhood when everything was washable, such as placemats, rain coats, etc. Anyway, I’m excited!

  268. Ginny Axtell says:

    After seeing a small tote bag made out of oilcloth in a retail shop, my daughter has requested one for Christmas. I’m also planning on making bibs and, perhaps, a changing pad for my neighbor’s new baby. I’m excited about the wide range of designs available…no longer just tablecloth material!

  269. Wendy Hatton says:

    I have never sewn with oil cloth but would love to try. The range of fabric patterns looks beautiful. I can just see my 4yo grand daughter in an oil cloth apron helping me in the kitchen- her favourite pass time at the moment.

  270. Rachaeldaisy says:

    Yay!! What a great book!! I’ve just recently been wonderful about sewing with oilcloth. I want to make my out door setting a table cloth and cushions for the chairs. Bags would make awesome presents with Christmas coming up!!

  274. Cindy G. says:

    I have some oilcloth just waiting to be turned into something besides a tote bag. I also have a disaster of a gift that I made for a friend (I attempted to make a lunch tote that could hold a plate), and need some inspiration for converting into something she’ll actually be able to use. I’m also intrigued by laminated cotton, and need to keep my eyes peeled it so I can give it a try!

  275. Ashley says:

    Horrible secret…. I have never worked with Oil Cloth. I am too scared. I look at it and think of all the wonderful things I could do with with it and then I chicken out. Maybe this book would help me conquer my fears! Thanks for a chance to win an awesome giveaway!!! If I don’t win I will have to put this book on my wish list for christmas…I really want to learn to work with it properly so I don’t mess my machine or fabric up. πŸ˜‰ Thanks again!!

  276. piggyflowers says:

    I’m afraid to start my zippered seat cushions. Maybe it won’t be so scary if I learn how to make them with snaps instead.

  277. Katy says:

    Absolutely love oilcloth, would love to win this book, thank you :o)

  290. susan hwang says:

    lovely giveaway – thank you!

  291. Sophia says:

    Oh, and it almost never frays…!

  292. Sophia says:

    I love using laminated cotton, because of my love for bags, diaper bags, lunch bags, cosmetics wallets etc, meaning lined bags, I tend to use laminated cotton recently. Never had any problems with my Singer Advance. I sometimes try to play with pressure. I love the fact that it comes in such cool designs while making a bag, big or small, spill proof. I’m currently making sandwitch wraps for the kids, I make sure to use PBA-PVC-free materials.

  293. Valerie says:

    I’ve never seen oilcloth before. Perhaps it will be my next sewing addiction… πŸ™‚

  294. Alyssa says:

    I’m totally intrigued. I’d particularly like to try one of those gumdrop pillows or chair cushions out of oilcloth.

  295. Kerry says:

    I made some outdoor cushions but now have leftover laminate cotton and need a project for it. This book would be perfect for that.

  296. Sarah says:

    I love oilcloth, but I’ve only purchased finished products. I think a little inspiration and some helpful tips would push me to make my own items.

  297. karoliina says:

    I haven’t done much anything with the oilcloth yet, but I have been itching to try something – maybe it’s time to finally get started!

  298. Megan says:

  303. Debbie Laney says:

    I had want to make a chalkboard mat but I never could find the oilcloth and the chalkboard fabric.

  304. Wendy says:

    I’ve made two oilcloth tablecloths, and two bags from laminated cotton. I loved working with both materials, but especially the laminated cotton. Loved seeing Kelli’s choices for possible projects; I’d like to learn more about using cotton and oilcloth/laminates together.

  305. kathyh says:

    I used oilcloth for my passport cover. I bought some in orange and black to do some OSU wallets but haven’t cut into it yet.
    Colorblocking and utilizing my coverstitch come to mind. The edges don’t fray and the coverstitch seam reinforces any areas that need it.
    I love all the new designs coming out.

  306. Cecillia says:

    I’ve seen so many amazing oil cloth project for baby-related items and I’ve been wanting to try them but have been too intimidated by the idea. WOuld love the book and the materials to give it a shot! Thanks πŸ™‚

    I would love this book. I AM TERRIFIED OF OILCLOTH. I like to look at it in the stores and then I think of all the great things that could be made with it then I walk away knowing I have no idea what I am doing. I need guidance and help, this could be just what I need to make my oilcloth dreams come true!

  310. Rebecca says:

    I have some laminated fabric for a rain jacket for my little guy and some on the way for a messenger bag for my daughter. I’d love to have this book for some more ideas and pointers. THANKS for the chance!

  311. Lynette says:

    As a mom with 2 small children, a couple of things come to mind immediately as oilcloth projects: bibs and smocks. My youngest is a messy eater and I’ve been toying with the idea of making a smock with oilcloth on one side and terry on the other. Heck. Her entire wardrobe should just be oilcloth and then cleanup would be easy peasy.

  312. Karen says:

    I have been seeing more and more projects that use oilcloth and have been thinking that it might just make my life a little easier to clean (with 5 kids, things can get a little messy!). This book would be a wonderful way to start off.

  313. Amy B. says:

    Oilcloth mug rug here I come!

  314. Cat says:

    I love oilcloth and this book looks so cool.

  321. Southern Gal says:

    I’m scared of oilcloth. I would love to find out exactly how to sew something from that great fabric. Thanks for the chance!

  322. byrney says:

    I would love the chance to win…as would my 2 boys…thank-you.

  323. Christy Coy says:

  324. stephanie mullin says:

    I made a tablecloth for my daughters’ art table but would love to do something that would be so fun! Love this book!

  325. Laura says:

    I have been wanting to try an oilcloth project. Hmm, this gives me some great ideas!

  326. Karrieann says:

    I have not had any experience with sewing oil cloth, or the pil cloth itself! This would be a fun try!

  327. VickiT says:

    I finally was able to find some laminated cotton in my area last week. I got to feel it and now think I’d like to try using it. I do have a pattern for a rain coat for children’s sizes but the colors they had weren’t right for that and this store only carried two of them. I’d also love to make a great looking table cloth for my kitchen with oil cloth. I haven’t sewn on it for years and I’m sure the new oilcloth is much nicer than what I bought about 20 yrs ago.

  328. LauraH says:

    I love oilcloth and the colors here are beautiful! What great patterns too! I’d love to have this book and some sample cloth to sew! Thanks!

  329. Leslie Westlake says:

    I have already made the gum drop pillows from Amy Butler, but they would be fabulous in oilcloth.

    I have just recently found your blog, it’s great.

    This is a wonderful looking book.

  338. Christy says:

    I am about to start my first project with laminated cotton (if my fabric ever arrives to AK via the mail!) and I can already see how it could get addicting! This book looks fantastic! It would be a great starting point for me.

  339. leigh nelms says:

    I would love to learn how to sew with oilcloth. I haven’t attempted anything, but I am eager to try to make something with one (or two or three..) of the wonderful prints I am seeing lately. I would like to make a raincoat for my daughter once I get the hang of it.

  340. Miquela says:

    I love oilcloth! So excited for this book!

  342. Kim Guerrier says:

    I’ve always wanted to try sewing with oilcloth but I’m a little scared. I bet having this book sure would help.

  346. Ange says:

    I’ve always loved the idea of sewing with oilcloth, but the one time I did, I could have done with this book for some help. Recently I sewed with laminated cotton for the first time – made an Art Smock for my daughter – and found it amazing to sew with and much more forgiving than oilcloth.
    Thanks for a great giveaway!

  347. Shannon says:

  350. Keitha says:

    Oh say it’s not so! I have always wanted to learn to sew oilcloth. This would book would help so much!!!!

  351. craftykaren says:

    So many potential projects spring to mind – an organizer to hang over a closet door like the expensive ones sold at Container Store and Bed Bath and Beyond, tablecloths for work surfaces, and many adorable baby gifts. Would love to begin to experiment with oilcloth!

  352. Lisa says:

    I love the new chalk cloth!! So cool!

  353. Pamela S. says:

    I would love to win copy of this book! I am currently working on a lunch tote with oilcloth.

  355. Em says:

    I bought a pattern for a raincoat and that’s as far as I’ve gone into the world of oilcloth. I love to continue the journey and you know, actually sew something with it, but I just haven’t made the plunge yet.

  356. Valerie Boudier says:

    Have never tried sewing with oilcloth but would love to give it a go!

  357. Allison says:

    I’ve so wanted to work with oilcloth, but I guess I haven’t really had the chance yet. Project time is always limited with a little one. But since the little guy is getting so messy, it would be a good time to start working with oilcloth. I guess I prefer the new laminated cottons rather than the traditional oilcloth, and hope to try out a project sometime soon. Thanks for the giveaway!

  358. Jen says:

    This looks like a fantastic book! I have actually never sewn with oil cloth.

  359. Crunchy Con Mommy says:

    I think I killed my sewing machine by trying to use oilcloth without knowing what I was doing. This book sounds like just what I need to avoid killing my brand new sewing machine!

  360. Mary says:

    I tried laminated cotton earlier this year and was delighted with result, I’d seen a tip to use a walking foot whilst sewing with it and it worked a treat. So I’m ready to give oilcloth a go!
    thanks for the giveaway

    I have never sewn with oilcloth before, but I would LOVE to try! Can’t wait to comb through this book!

    I’d love to do more sewing with oilcloth. So far, I’ve only dabbled in it a few times.

  367. Shanley says:

    have a gorgeous piece of japanese oilcloth that needs a purpose… here’s my answer! πŸ™‚

  368. Laura says:

    I made an amy butler travel tote with oilcloth, but I’m looking forward to a book with tips on sewing with oilcloth. I struggled with the holes that needles make and the fact that the fabic has less overall flexibility than cloth.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  369. Melissa says:

    I can’t believe how many cute oilcloth fabrics there are! This book is a great idea!

  370. Heather says:

    I love oilcloth and laminated cottons, theyÒ€ℒre so beautiful. IÒ€ℒve bought some oilcloth, even a roller foot for my machine but quite honestly IÒ€ℒm a bit scared by it. I really want to use a free pattern to make a car garbage bag but IÒ€ℒm nervous .

  371. Sweetpea says:

    I’ve always wanted to give these fabrics a try but hate to make the investment since I’m not sure how the fabrics would sew up. Thanks for the inspiration to jump in and give them a try.

  372. Shannon Burchard says:

    I would love to make a rain coat and messenger bag in oil clothe. The rain will be here soon!

    I just used laminated cotton to make a beach bag and it was easier to use than I thought it would be!

  376. Mary Sue says:

    I’ve never sewed oilcloth and would love to try it. I need a new machine cover. I also want to make a bike bag and oilcloth would be good for that.

  377. Andrea says:

    I do love oilcloth but it intimidates me to think of sewing with it. I bought a few yards and cut in to be a tablecloth but that’s as far as gone. This book would be a great way to explore a little more.

  378. Suzanne says:

    I have not sewn with oilcloth yet but it looks like this book holds a wealth of information, patterns and tips. thanks for showcasing it.

  382. Becca McK says:

    I haven’t sewn anything with oilcloth, but my SIL recently got some to make a coffee table covering that she uses when the kids paint to keep it off the table. Seemed like a great idea. I think I will have to get some along with that adorable sewing basket pattern.

  383. liz says:

    I just bought the Oliver & S raincoat pattern and beautiful O&S coated fabric for matching coats for my one and three-year-old girls. I am excited, but terrified to make the first cut!!!

  384. Alli says:

    I haven’t had a chance to try sewing oilcloth yet, but I’m looking forward to when I do. I have my tissue paper all ready! (I read that I can use that instead of a teflon foot. :D)

  425. Kylie C says:

    I have never worked with oilcloth because I’ve heard it can be difficult to work through a machine and as a newbie I’m scared of things like that. Place mats would be a great Christmas gift for my toddler nephew this year though…

  426. karen Cole says:

    I would LOVE to try to start sewing w/oilcloth!!!

  427. jenny says:

    I have always loved oilcloth, but my machine does not. I would love to find out what I should be doing.

  428. I really need a raincoat and would love to try some other patterns out, too, as we have a balcony dying to have a makeover done next season. In the meantime, placemats etc for the kitchen sounds really nice, especially if the contents look as inviting as the cover!

  429. Amy says:

    I adore the idea to use chalk cloth in the banner. I made a Cath-Kidston-type tote bag with oilcloth a few years, now I’m dying to get my hands on this book. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    OMG I would love this giveaway. I would definitely make art smocks for my kids!!!

  431. laura reich says:

    I love the idea of this book!
    I have 5 small kids and I need to learn how to use laminated cotton with my machine.
    I did make a Gum Drop Pillow with oil cloth for our play room, but it was much harder to do than I expected. For the second pillow I just used home decorating fabric. I have to admit the oil cloth pillow holds its shape perfectly even if it was much harder. Maybe laminated cotton would be the best of both worlds?

  432. Julie says:

    I have always loved the look of oilcloth, but have no idea what to do with it! What a great book! Thanks for posting the links πŸ™‚

  433. Kelly says:

  438. Rp says:

    how fun!

  439. emily says:

    Ooh, I’d love this book! I have made a lunch bag in oilcloth that turned out super cute…so many fun possibilities!

  440. Kate says:

    I love laminated cotton.I just made a tablecloth for my dining room table and am pleased at how easy I can clean up after my toddler eats. And because the fabric is modern it does not look like it is on a picnic table. I would love to see some more patterns for splash mats and baby bibs.

  441. katie says:

    This book looks so fun!

  442. Consuelo says:

    The book looks great! Thanks for the chance to win!

    I’ve never worked with oilcloth before but with a baby on the way, it seems like the right time to jump in. Thanks for the giveaway!

  449. Meagan says:

    I would love to win this! πŸ™‚ Thanks for the chance!

  450. Beth Ellen says:

    I love the look of oilcloth for beach totes and other tote bags, so I would make myself a new tote with some beautiful new oilcloth from AMH or Amy Butler or some other designer.

  451. kim says:

    oilcloth is the new black. I would love this book.

  452. Annie says:

    Oh I’d love to try and sew with oilcloth, but have been too nervous of messing up. A book full of tips would sure be handy!

  454. cheri says:

    Oh, I have been dying to make a raincoat for my daughter….but have not attempted it yet! πŸ™‚

  455. robin says:

  456. Bonnie says:

    Wow. I’v been inspired to work with oil cloth since seeing my first CatKidsin bag! ( and saying”I can make that!”). And a great tool roll up that can be wiped down would be another awesome project! What a great book to show me how to work with this fabulous fabric!

  457. I have four little people who would love me to make them some of those gumdrop pillows…. πŸ™‚

  458. Amy says:

    Awesome – this sounds like such a great book!

    I have been waiting to check this book out…my little guy is quite messy and I am hoping for some projects to make picking up after him a bit easier.

  460. Alethea says:

    Oilcloth seems so intimidating, but I’d love to try to make a portable stadium cushion (for sporting events or any outdoor seating event).

  461. Donna says:

    I’ve been admiring the oilcloths and laminated cottons that are available but have been too intimidated to try sewing with them. I really want to try some projects and need some good ideas. I would love to win this book!

  462. Holly Walsh says:

    Oilcloth projects always look so cute when I see the finished products but I’ve never tried to sew it. Winning this book would make me braver to try it I think! πŸ™‚

  463. Beth says:

    What a fun book. Great giveaway! Thanks!

  464. Paige says:

    All of those projects look like so much fun; love the gumdrop pillows.

  466. Jenny says:

    I’d love to know more about sewing with oilcloth, and have some samples that I wouldn’t be scared to cut into! It’s so pricey, it’s hard to justify buying a big piece without knowing how to work with it. Chicken and egg….

  467. Melinda says:

    That Eva Sewing Basket pattern is pretty cool! I’ve made children’s aprons, a diapers and wipes pouch and a changing pad with oilcloth and laminated cotton. My next project is a “man tote” for my dad using Echino’s camera print. This time I will use a walking foot to help with the sticking issues.

  468. Linda G says:

    Your book looks adorable. Two people in my very small department at work are expecting babies soon and the bib option for oilcloth looks really intriguing. I would love to learn more about how to sew oilcloth.

  469. Lori Morton says:

    I have NEVER sewn with oilcloth…………..but I do remember tablecloths made from it when I was little!! πŸ™‚

    The book looks SUPER fun…………..and to have a chance to win………WOW!!!…..Thanks!!! Would LOVE to win, and with the Book & oilcloth together………..KNOW I could make somethin’ AMAZING too!

  470. Karin B. says:

    I did some sewing with oilcloth a few years ago and while I LOVE the look I struggled with sewing it and with inspirations. Now with two little boys it seems so practical and I want to go dig through my stash right now and find what I have left. I am excited to see so many new ones come out now and this looks like a great book full of ideas! I look forward to taking a look it and adding it to my Christmas list.

  471. sarah faith says:

    I’ve been DYING to try oil cloth projects for years now but have been too chicken. This post has me so excited!

    I made bags for cosmetics using oilcloth. They were a big hit!

  476. Brandi says:

    I’ve only been sewing since July, but have been sewing like crazy and have been pleased with my progress. However, oil cloth scares a newbie like me. But we have some amazing independent fabric stores around here that have been carrying the most darling oil cloth — far far far from my old ideas of oilcloth (i.e. limited to gingham picnic tablecloths). Between these fabrics and the great blogs I’ve been reading about using it, it’s just a matter of time before I tackle it!

  477. Melissa Evans says:

    I have been to wanting to try Amy Butler’s Rain Coat pattern, maybe this fall. I’ve been reading up on how to sew with oil cloth, but laminated fabrics and oil cloth are intimidating to a newbie!

  478. Beth S. says:

    Oh my gosh!! I love laminated cotton! And, now there’s a whole book dedicated to it! How great is that . . .

  479. Diana says:

    I love oil cloth totes but have yet to make one (or at least attempt). Such great ideas and fabulous prints!

  480. Heather D says:

    I’ve never worked with oilcloth, but would love to! I think my first project would be a sewing machine cover. So cute!!

  481. Jennyroo says:

    I have a few laminated cotton projects planned, I just need to work up the courage to try!

  482. Robie Dodson says:

    Oh goodness – I have had 3 yards of oilcloth in my stash for 2 years…I need this book!

  483. Deb says:

    I’ve always loved oilcloth since I was a kid, and now that I’m finally learning to sew in my 50’s, (yep, always a little late to the party πŸ™‚ I can’t wait to try and make all sorts of fun stuff with it! The book looks like great fun to be had with oilcloth. Thanks for a chance to win one!

  484. Dell says:

    I have always wanted to try a raincoat in oil cloth. Would love some pointers. great book review.

  485. I’ve never sewn with it but I really want to try! Thanks for the chance to try! xox

  486. Emma says:

    I would love to start sewing with oil cloth! This book would be such a great reference to have. Thank you for posting the giveaway!

  487. Merrie says:

    I’ve been meaning to cover up my mixer (I’m tired of washing it off every time I go to use it). Oilcloth would be great for that project.

  488. mamacharm says:

    love this! i have some laminated cotton waiting to be turned into something.

  489. Beth says:

    I’ve only used oilcloth once, but I enjoyed working with it and would love to try more. The project I made was a lunch bag. I am especially interested in using oilcloth or laminated cotton to make a rain coat.

  490. jeanette ansell says:

    Oil cloth has intrigued me for years, but I am afraid my sewing machine is not good enough for such a stiff fabric. Sewing With Oilcloth may give me the confidence to brave the elements.

  491. Debbie says:

    I have not sewn with oilcloth yet but this has me very interested in trying to make some aprons from oilcloth.

  492. erinmalia says:

    oh gosh. the trouble i could get into with this book!

  493. Melissa says:

    I love the idea of the cushions for the kitchen. I have a kitchen nook custom built with church pews, and currently no pads. Not as comfy as I wouldl like! I’ve been talking about making pads for years, and this book may be just the inspiration I need. Thanks for the opportunity!

  494. Nikki says:

    Ooh, I love oilcloth & would like to make more stuff with it! Thanks!

  495. Carol P says:

    I would love to try sewing with oilcloth

  496. Meredith says:

    i love the look and practicality of oil cloth. It isn’t something Ive tackled yet due to fear! I’m trying to get a few more basics under my belt before making the leap. But this contest might be the catalyst I need to jump in with both feet!

  497. I am planning to buy some laminated fabrics for.. I don’t even remember :), but shipping is killing me.

    I will buy it though, I know I will :))). I have a bag in my head for months and it won’t get out :)), so I really need to buy some Amy Butler and Echino laminated. And some MM bicycles, as long as we’re on the subject :D. Oh, and some pretty box puches are waiting for laminated too πŸ˜€

    I am sure the ideeas will start poping out once I actually see and feel the fabric, but a book with amazing ideas would definitly help in buying that darn fabric that I dream about πŸ™‚

  498. starjumper says:

    I love laminated cotton because it’s waterproof, easy to clean, and doesn’t need a finished edge! i think my favorite laminated cottons are Tula Pink’s Prince Charming… I made a shower curtain from them:

  499. Glenys says:

    I’ve never sewn with oilcloth before. So this should be interesting and I like trying out new things.

  500. JillO says:

    I love oilcloth, but have never really worked with it! I would love to have this book as a guide! Thanks.

  501. Kate says:

    That Eva sewing basket would make the perfect craft tote for my little girl! I think if I win the oilcloth book, it will have to go to my Mom…maybe for Christmas.

  502. krystina says:

    I’ve never tried sewing with oilcloth but have been dying to! Thanks for the chance to win this book.

  503. deirdre_lyon says:

    I love oilcloth, but am totally intimidated by it – I even have a yard or two sitting around, waiting for an outdoor-safe project, but I’m just too nervous!

  504. Joanna says:

    I have been wanting to try sewing with oilcloth for forever, but was too intimidated. I now have a great Janome sewing machine and want to see what she can do!! That Natura fabric is awesome!!

  505. Tuesday says:

    I love oilcloth!

  506. Jaye Gause says:

    I’ve been wanting to try oilcloth but hadn’t had any good ideas until I read this, now I know what I want to us for bench cushion for the picnic table, Perfect! Would love the book for more ideas.

  507. Holly says:

    Ooh, that looks fun! I’d love to win!

  508. I would love to try the bib patterns from the book!

  509. Pam says:

    This is something that I have wanted to explore –

  510. Rita says:

    Oh My!!! What a wonderful book!!! With 3 boys (5, 18, 23), 2 granddaughters (3weeks & 4), & 1 grandson (5mo) this sure would come in handy! Years ago I sewed with oilcloth & it sure looks like things have come a long way since then…yay! LOVE your blog & always look forward to the great stuff you share…thank you!!!

  511. Rebecca says:

    I love the look of oil cloth and have done a couple of projects in it, but it is not a textile that I am very comfortable working with. Would love a chance at the book and a few fat quarters for experimenting with!

    My favorite use for oilcloth is for bags. As someone who commutes on public transportation, it is nice to have totes in fabric that I can just wipe clean πŸ™‚

  512. Jessica says:

    I am dying to try the laminated cotton with the Gumdrop pillows for our kids’ playroom. It would be fantastic.

    I’m also so domestic that I’d like to make some covers for my sewing machine and mixer. This book and the samples would be a wonderful surprise! πŸ™‚

  513. Kate G says:

    This is the how-to book I’ve been waiting for. I’m a fan of oilcloth tote bags for marketing and oil cloth pads for kneeling in the garden and oil cloth bound with gaffers tape and used as a picnic blanket. This volume will kick my skills up a notch. My first project will be an apron or two or three. The Mommy and me pattern fits that bill.

  514. aprilshowers says:

    When my youngest was a baby I was so jealous of one of my friend’s oilcloth changing pads. I didn’t sew then and the prices of ready-made ones were a little out of my budget so I had to live without (we survived, of course!). Now that I can sew, my kids are [almost] out of the diapering phase but my sister is expecting her first in January so I’d love to make her one!

  515. Megan says:

    Would love to have a chance to work with oilcloth! Thanks.

  516. If I don’t win I will surely order this book! Thanks for a chance to win, first!

  517. Vanessa Harper says:

    ooohhhh…would love to win this book!

  518. Steph G. says:

    It’s hard to find nice raincoats for the kiddos–I’m interested in trying Amy Butler’s patterns.

  519. Christi Allen says:

    I am itching to try some laminated cotton & oilcloth projects!!!

  520. Sara says:

    Oooooh!! I’d love a copy! It looks like it’s full of absolutely brilliant ideas I could use in my house with three kids. πŸ™‚

  521. Nonnie Rose says:

    Oh I would lOVE to win this! I am intimidated by oil cloth/laminated fabrics….I have some and just “think” about using them someday!

  522. I just worked with oilcloth for the first time a couple months ago. It was just a small project, a cosmetics bag for a swap. I did see this book and thought it intriguing while I was researching, though. Oh, something else to learn! Will I ever stop finding more things I need to know?

  523. Shelly says:

    I would LOVE to get this book! I have a collection of oilcloth from a friend and would love some fresh ideas for using it. Thanks!

  524. Jennifer says:

    This looks super amazing! I’ve never worked with oil cloth, but would love to. I’m always looking for new and fun projects to do, as I have mostly sewn only clothing so far. I would love to have a copy of this book!

  525. Westin's Mom says:

    I just bumbled my way through sewing with laminate and busted my machine. I need this book! Don’t worry, the machine is fixed now, but I’m not sewing with laminate or oilcloth until I read this book.

  526. Patti Vynanek says:

    I have never used anything but cotton! It sounds like this book has some really great projects, I’d love to check it out!

  527. Allison says:

    Love, love, love oilcloth! I first became interested in oilcloth several years ago when a friend of mine showed me some cute lunch sacks she had purchased for her children. They were monogrammed and so cute that I decided to make a few of my own. I’m anxious to read Kelli McCants new book, “Sewing with Oilcloth” to try out some new ideas!

  528. Sourkraut says:

    I’ll admit that although I’ve admired many oilcloth fabrics I have yet to buy any because I’m scared they’ll be too fussy to sew with.

  529. Marlene says:

    I am so intrigued by this concept. I have never sewn with oil cloth and would love to try it. I love your website, the ideas are so creative and reach out to me to create something myself.
    Thank you

  530. pamela ward says:

    I love this stuff. endless possibility.

  531. Hilary says:

    I can’t wait to see this book. I’ve never used oilcloth, but this would be just the place to start. Thanks for the giveaway!

  532. Tricia says:

    I really want to make raincoats for myself and my kids, but no, my machine does not like oilcloth. Or it doesn’t like me. I need some tips!

  533. Sarah Hammond says:

    I am pretty new to sewing and I’ve never used oilcloth before. I would really like to try and sew up some lunch bags for my daughter! Maybe some reusable snack bags too, I think that would work out perfectly!

  534. Tina says:

    Oh, I love laminated cotton! So I would love to have this book πŸ˜‰

    The most important to me is to have a teflon foot for the sewing machine, that makes sewing more easy.
    The first to items I ever listed to my new etsy-shop where laminated cotton pouches – hope I will sell them one day *g*

    Making a raincoat – oh yeah, one day, when my baby-daughter is older, I will make one out of this beautiful Amy Butler laminated fabrics πŸ˜‰


  535. Alyson says:

    I have this adorable green apple printed oil cloth and I am baffled as to what I should do with it besides using it as an outdoor tablecloth (boring!). I would LOVE to get my hands on this book!

  536. Suze Jones says:

    I love oilcloth and the projects that are possible, but my old machine struggled with it. I’ve just treated myself to a new machine and I’m very keen to get cracking on some oilcloth projects to put it through its paces. Love the look of this book and would be glad to pick up some tips to achieve neat corners and properly bound edges!

  537. Amy says:

    I first saw this book just a few days ago, and thought it looked super-interesting! So many fun things to make! I hope I win πŸ™‚

  538. jessicac says:

    I have 2 chunks of oilcloth waiting for me to get up the nerve to use them! And I am always drawn to them in the fabric store.. this book looks great, and I would love to try and make the seat cushion.

  539. Jen V says:

    I have a few oil cloth pieces in my stash but I don”t know the first thing about working with it. This book is just what I need!

    Ohh I’ve never sewn with oilcloth – would love to win this book! x

  543. Mary says:

    I’ve never sewn with oilcloth (always been a bit intimidated by it), but I have several items I’d love to make, a sewing machine cover being one of them! I have a 3 year old, so anything made with oilcloth or laminated cotton would make life lovely right now! Thanks for the giveaway.
