Laminated Sewing

Hi all I have something new to share with you. My first sewing project working with laminated fabric. I have been a bit scared or working with oilcloth but had to have a go. I like to venture outside my comfort zone every now and then. Things I learned along the way. Don't pin if you can avoid it and sew slowly. Iron on the reverse.
At the end I have a totally wipeable crayon wallet, I am pretty pleased with myself. What new projects have you been working on?


  1. Very cute! I admit that I am afraid of laminated fabric too! It's so expensive and I just don't know if it's worth it! I am working on some embroidery- I learned the chain stitch which is really fun!

    1. I look forward to seeing what you are stitching. I love handwork.

  2. Hello! This is really smart and looks beautifully made, as ever! Thanks for the tips about using this type of fabric too
