my neighbor moved out today and was throwing out YARDS of this amazing skull lace printed  oil cloth!! Obviously i swiped it. Now on to the part where I would love ideas/patterns for what to make with it...


So far I have these ideas:
re-useable lunch bag
coasters
apron
shopping tote
placemats

Tote bag for sure, with some contrasting oil cloth in bright colors - maybe flowers.  I have an oil cloth tote bag and I use it all of the time!  For a purse, groceries, farmers market.  I love it and this find from your neighbor was a TOTAL SCORE!!!

Although this only has the items you've already come up with, I thought that I'd share this Martha page on different oilcloth crafts... they're really cute!

If it is actual fabric on the back (rather than just the fuzzy stuff), you could make lots of baby items for people who aren't necessarily into the typical pink, blue, bunnies, bears, and puppies kind of stuff that's out there.

Bibs, little bags for wet clothes, diaper bags, etc.
