I just love oilcloth but it is a tad on the expensive side and you dont get that many gorgeous patterns. I decided to try my own version of waterproofing with laminated iron on sheets. They just iron on to your fabric and it is easy peasy to use. At first I was quite impressed the cotton looked like matt oilcloth. It was when I had sewed my wee purse and I was turning it the right way out it went all wrinkly and just felt quite crisp and flimsy and not very nice at all, Kinda put me off finishing the purse. I still have the back and front centre piece to finish, might do a bit of de-coupage in them.
