trinnie-- it's very easy to work with, especially when doing totes, the only problem i have is that when i tried to stitch on the outside of the oilcloth, it got stuck on the feed dogs, and for some reason, i don't have a way to lower them, if you can, lower your feed dogs if you're going to be sewing on the outside of it.

perfect!  i have some oil cloth with gingham and cherries on it (how rockabilly am i!) and dying to use it, i'll use your tips!

  put newsprint under it (the edge of the daily paper where there is no ink) will work well

I've heard that butcher paper or parchment paper may also work.



thanks for that tip, too!  i'm gonna try to sew with it tonight, wish me luck!

Am a real "cheapy" and wonder if there are any free patterns around using the oilcloth.  Esp. for purses.  Thanks.

 Good work! I am working on a toaster cover out of it.  If you use a Teflon coated foot, the oilcloth doesn't stick. I also read that you can use tape on the underside of your presser foot just make a hole for the needle.
