    I’ve been planning to make some reusable sandwich wraps, but haven’t been able to find oilcloth. I bought some flaxseed oil to make my own, but am scared to try it. Winning this would save my husband the headache of watching me try.

    I would make a simple little jacket that would show off one of the floral or frutit pattens and bright colors of the oil cloth. I could wear this to work with a white knit cotton shirt (no collar), black slim pants or black pencil skirt and ballet flats for a fun spring look. Also could be worn with a little dress.
