To turn almost any fabric into a substitute for oilcloth, cut clear contact paper to cover the fabric. Press out "bubbles". Set iron on lowest setting and place a thin pressing cloth on top of contact paper covered fabric. Press for 20-30 seconds. When cool, check to see the contact paper has fused to the cloth. As for oilcloth, do not iron or wash in the washing machine.

O.M.G! I love you! I've looked for reasonably priced oilcloth for years and it was always too much money for more fabric than I needed. Now I can "oil" just the amount of fabric I'll need for my projects as I go!

This tip totally rocks.
