Oilcloth is a vinyl that is bonded and supported with a woven cotton mesh. It is waterproof and stain resistant. You can wipe oilcloth clean using a warm, soapy sponge then dry it off with a soft cloth. Machine washing is not suggested. Store folded or rolled. Any creases from folding will smooth out over time — faster in a warm environment. Do not iron oilcloth or put it in a clothes dryer.

Now to the fun part: it’s great for tablecloths, placemats, drink coasters, baby bibs, aprons, wallets, zippered travel bags, tote bags…

Available as a “fat quarter” (a yard cut into quarters that are 18″ x 22″) or by the yard (full yards only). 47″ wide.
