Oilcloth, in and of itself, is an amazing fabric. It's made from PVC vinyl with a cotton and polyester backing, which creates a beautiful, durable, shiny fabric that wipes clean with a damp cloth and won't fray. There are many who, once introduced to this fabric, find themselves addicted, ever wondering what next to create with its seemingly magical properties! For all of the reasons above, it makes a fantastic crafting choice, so once you've exhausted all of the more traditional options (like tablecloths, placemats, drawer and shelf liners) you can move on to more and more creative options, like tote bags and beach bags! This particular pattern features chunky stripes of red and white, making an ideal choice for Americana themes or a great Fourth of July picnic table setup!
