the festival of Amy continues

There's a family brunch tomorrow and a regular kid types party the day after.

So there are cakes to bake and gingerbread men to be made, filth to be tidied away and lolly bags to stamp and fill.

But for some reason I can't seem to shake out of my head a compelling desire to get my hands on oil cloth to make some toiletries bags and lunch sacks for Amy.

I've been thinking about this for a while, months in fact. Every time I head away from home I find my toiletries bag options enormously disappointing and hopelessly impractical, and I am tired of stuffing Amy's lunch tupperware collection into an overly large and cumbersome cool pack. In this weather it could only be called over kill.

I'd be doing my usual thing of defying common sense by trying to stuff sewing time in between party rounds and cooking, but I can't find any oil cloth that doesn't involve the internet and international shipping.

Someone please tell me they know just the place to get some locally? I'm worried I don't have enough things to do...

The camel mitts are almost done, a few more rounds and then the thumbs and it's all over. There will be pics when the weather is more conducive to letting you see all that complicated stitching in black.

Straight away I'll be casting on Amy's socks for my new commuter project and a hat I have planned for a special occassion.

I'm trying to do something hat wise I've never done before so it feels a bit like a high wire act and may be a disaster. I'm doing a lot of thinking before I get the needles going. I've already picked out the yarn and a basic pattern concept, though I think it may involve some felting and a squarer top more like this.

But really, I've got no idea about details just yet. Just a looming deadline.

I have a feeling that these days, that which is called 'Oilcloth' is in fact just vinyl laminated fabric. Which you should be able to get at any of the biggies. Of course, I may be completely off track I suppose... but I seem to remember reading something to this effect in one of the many 'Green' blogs recently.

you could try using waterproof tablecloths, if you know what I mean... I don't know the right word for them, they're not technically oilcloth but they are waterproof to an extent. Maybe at Myers or some department store? Lincraft? I really don't know, it's been a while since I've been in Melbourne or Australia really...

What about here:

Although as Melanie said, nowadays it is plastic apparently - see http://www.softtreasures.com.au/show_more_info_product_oilcloth.html.

Just so you know, I am not affiliated with these people, just on a search for supplies like yourself.
