I have a new obsession: oilcloth! This is chalk cloth, fun to draw on and then wipe clean. There are so many good ideas on Oil Cloth Addict. The black vinyl was a red tag item at $6 then 50% off. A great deal at $3 a yard.
I'm working on fabric baskets/boxes/trays. A little droopy even with iron-on stiffener. I'm going to try spray starch.
