Being “green” and having a 16-month-old don’t always go hand in hand. Prior to Sew-In 2010 the number of placemats and cloth napkins needing washing seemed to increase exponentially each day. This was due in large part to Spud’s new-found eating independence. And while I love placemats, I hate seeing money washed down the drain in the form of unnecessary loads of laundry.
Enter oilcloth and vintage sheets.
Our first and only visit to the fabric store during Sew-In 2010 netted, among other things, two pieces of oilcloth cut to fit our dining room table—no sewing required.
