Here's another fantastic project I got from S.E.W. Everything by Diana Rupp. I haven't made anything out of there in some time, but the projects are just begging for it. This was my first time working with oilcloth, which I've discovered is about like any other fabric in that it has its pros and its cons. Anyway, without further ado...

I made this cute oilcloth cozy...



...to replace this boring, factory-made cover:



The store really only had a few oilcloth prints, but I found myself having an internal battle over whether to use this or a pattern that was white with black polka dots (I love black and white). Either one would have turned out equally as cute.

Thank you! I should have taken a better photo...the white is very white even though it looks yellow-ish in the picture.

I am glad to see that you are sewing cute projects for yourself and your home!!

I think the fabric is really lovely---and it will be practical, too, as you can wipe oilcloth off with a damp cloth!

What would you say the biggest problem was with sewing it?  I personally do not like the "stickiness" but I purchased a telflon roller foot that seems to glide over this type of fabric and vinyl!

Oh yes! So much better than the boring old white cover Smiley. It really turned out great. I know that oil cloth is a pain in the buns to work with but you seem to have mastered it. It gorgeous cloth too - I really like the pattern.

Very nice! I've never sewn on oilcloth and would be interested in hearing about how it's different to sew on from regular fabric.
