    I would love to make an infant shopping cart organizer. It could get really fun with a chew top and bottle sleeve!

    I have two young boys. Who eat in ways that might make one think they were actually bellied up to the local barn trough. With some jazzy oilcloth, I could make one swanky looking barn trough table cloth to distract me from the chow-down mayhem. I might even cover the bench cushion. Um, and then the walls….and then ourselves. :D

    Dress up my nursery shed by covering the potting table and matching chaircovers. Then recover the old sun umbrella – match set. I also would make shopping bags for my friends and family, maybe not this Christmas but next for sure. M

    I would love to make girly, waterproof seat covers for my Ford truck’s bucket seats. I married a rancher 6 months ago, so a lot of dirt and what-not goes in and out of my truck, and those drab woven seat covers that you can buy just don’t cut it. I’ve been plotting to make seat covers out of oilcloth for some time now, so I would LOVE to win this contest!!

    A elbow-lenght cape-style raincoat thingy. With 2 rows of buttons (dobble-raddet?) and a thin china-collar. And perhaps a more traditional raincoat, but with a flared hem. And perhaps a computer cozy. Just perhaps.

    Oh I love this give-away b/c I just so happened to have purchased a special foot for sewing on oil cloth – just THREE DAYS AGO!! What to make, what to make??? I want to start by making fun little “elf” hats for my three kids out of oil cloth – and embellish them with cutout flowers. After that, I’d like to make a million diaper bags b/c I have a million pregnant friends right now! Thanks for the rockin’ giveway!!!

    It would make a really cute baby bib, but I don’t have a baby so I would make my dog a rain jacket. He hates the rain!

    Oilcloth would make a great mini skirt. And how fun would it be to make knee-high spats to fake go-go boots? I guess I’m in a 60s mind today.

    Definitely some bags! I’m hoping to make lots of bags and totes for gifts this year. And I’d make little wallets and purses with the scraps. Love the fruits and florals.

    I would LOVE to make a funky raincoat! Something bright, maybe psychedelic. It would have a trench coat type shoulder yoke and flare out at the hips. It would definitely be calf length because I hate getting wet shins!
