Can anyone recommend a good online site to purchase an oilcloth tablecloth?  Or would it be cheaper to order some oilcloth and make my own tablecloth?

Thanks for the link. Do you think I would just have to hem it?

Local fabric stores often have oilcloth too.  You don't have to pay shipping costs. 

When you hem it, just turn it under once and machine stitch with a fairly long stitch.  A short stitch will weaken it.  You don't need to turn it under twice.  You could actually use it unhemmed - it won't ravel.  But it will definitely be neater with a hem.
