Pretty sure I’m the world’s worst seamstress. I own a sewing machine and I can sew in a straight-ish line. That’s about it. So when Joann Fabric contacted me about helping them celebrate National Sewing Month, I took it as a challenge to create something easy enough for those of us with remedial sewing skills.

For this project, I combined my papercrafting skills with a little bit of sewing. I pulled out my stamps to create a DIY oilcloth pouch – who knew you could make your own oilcloth!?

The key to creating oilcloth is the Fusible Vinyl which you can pick up at Joann’s. The stuff couldn’t be simpler to use – just peel off the backing and use an iron to adhere it to the stamped fabric. It pretty similar to laminating – just with fabric rather than paper.

  1. I’d say you need to give yourself more credit for your sewing abilities! I loooove this project, I’ve been sewing for a loooong time and zippers are intimidating to me…I’m thinking I need to conquer that fear and make some of these. sooo pretty, wonderful job. 🙂

  2. FABULOUS!! Love your choice of fabrics and stamping – so very classy 🙂 I m very excited about this “fabric laminating”! I’m off to Joanns right now (well, I’m going to get dressed first – LOL)!

    THANK YOU!!
