I stumbled on this post while looking up what oilcloth is, and I thought it was interesting. The article compares to laminated cotton to oilcloth, describes some of the characteristics of laminated cotton, and gives some sewing tips. I wonder if I can find this stuff locally? If laminated cotton is sturdy and doesn’t ravel, I think it might make a good substitute for ultra suede (which is ultra $$$) in the Martha Stewart shopping bag (remember that from the July meeting?).*
