I recently purchased some oilcloth from fabric.com on sale. I thought I would use it for cosmetic bags, lunch bags and small totes. Having never worked with it before I thought I'd see what I could find on the internet about it. I found lots of useful information. The one thing I thought would be a problem is top stitching because I don't have a Teflon foot. So in order to prevent the foot from sticking to the oilcloth I used washi tape!
I put a little strip on the bottom and it worked like a charm. The best part is no sticky residue.
I used the Alana pattern again and I'm pretty pleased with the results.
