1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Question about reusable sandwich wrap on: October 31, 2011 12:09:20 PM
Oilcloth is actually best. The vinyl from the sheet package does not have a fabric backing, so it loses a great deal of flexibility and is therefore much more prone to rips, tears, and cracks. You can probably still get away with using it (heck, why not? reusing materials is always worth a try!), but it would be wise to use the longest stitch length you reasonably can. This will avoid perforating the vinyl, which would make it as easy to tear as a check from a checkbook.

Good luck!

That color is GORGEOUS on you! I was going to suggest how to fix it, so I'm glad I read the other posts.

I'm also curious if you still have a copy of that pattern... I was considering making it but it was taken off of indie-knitter's blog because it's going to be published. (I don't think I can wait that long!)

I made this a long time ago as a celebration of the writer's strike ending and my favorite show coming back, and after seeing this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=257162.0) post, I mimicked it. Being new to craftster, I posted my version as a comment and commandeered stentorian's thread a little bit. Oops.

So, reposting.

It's just your basic t-shirt, freezer paper stenciled with black acrylic paint. If I were to do this again (I probably will) I'd iron the paint after it dried... methinks that's supposed to heat set it. Impatience (and forgetfulness) got the better of me, and I ended up washing it. It faded so now it has more of a vintage look than a nice crisp look. Which works too, I guess.

I promise, it's not as skewed as it looks in the picture. Bad angle.

Comments welcome, as always!

I had a loft bed when I was little- Man, I loved that thing. Except the bottom was pretty much useless because nothing would fit. Looks like you solved that problem! Wonderful job!
