    a ‘treasure tunnel’ for my cat, he loves anything plastic, licking it, laying on it, chewing on it, the sound of him walking through it. i’d line it with fleece, so it would be truly cat heaven :)

    I LOVE this fabric! I would make a raincoat for my daughter for sure, but a dittie bag for travel would be cool too.

    Oh goodness, I can think of several things I’d love to make with this fabric. The chalk cloth would be great for a drawing board for my pattern ideas. I’d love to make a wipe-clean soft case for my little serger and a some raincoats for my dolls! I can think of lots of things I could make….how fun!

    Some chalk fabric would be great for some headboards in my kids room. Ohh and maybe some coupon wallets in fun funky colors. :-)

    Saw a great tool kit/catchall that you place over the top of a paint bucket to give it shape. If I made one out of a fabulous oilcloth this would be super cool.

    I have holiday decorating on the brain and I recently saw the most adorable fabric tree ornaments. I think it would be really cute to make some out of oilcloth. I love non-traditional ornaments, colors and materials used for holiday decorating.

    I was thinking my outdoor chairs need new covers, but I also need a new backsplash for a very uneven 97 year old house. Easy to clean…..

    I used oil cloth to make a take cloth for out local farmers market. Its been a year and still holding up great! I would love to make some catch all mats to go under a chair or high chair for babies and toddlers. Messes could be shaken off and wiped clean with ease.

    I need to make new chair cushions for my outdoor furniture for next season, that would be great plus $100 would make it much easier to start now on it :)

    not totally out of the box, but I always admire the funky raincoats you can buy in denmark or sweden. They never come in plus sizes, so I would definetly give sewing one myself a try. I already have a plus size hootie coat pattern from burda in my stash.
