I've made this oilcloth bag which can be carried in the hand, at the elbow or as a shoulder bag due to the clever handle.  it is lined in red and white check cotton with interior slip pockets and a zippered pocket.

It looks really useful. It reminds me of picnics when I was a nipper.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Super cute! I love oilcloth.

Did you do anything special when sewing it? I seem to have a real hard time getting it to move through my machine. I've tried tissue paper but that hasn't worked all that well.

yes I use a teflon foot.  This is attached to my machine where my normal foot goes and it looks like hard white plastic.  It really makes sewing oilcloth easy.

How is oil cloth different from regular fabric?
