I found a cute tutorial over a little pumpkin grace for an oilcloth chalk mat. JoAnn Fabric is having a good sale this weekend with a 40% one regular priced item coupon. I also had my 20% mailer to use. I went in the store to get supplies for another diaper bag I’m making, but my friends and I found the chalk cloth. The request was made for a chalk mat and I went back later to get the supplies. Now, oilcloth is not readily available and I didn’t want to wait to order it. But, JoAnn’s did have iron on vinyl, problem solved. I sent my daughter through the line to get the vinyl at 40% off and then I used my coupon for the rest of the supplies. Chalk cloth isn’t super expensive. I followed the tutorial closely (not the dimensions – I bought 1/2 yard of the cloth and then cut that in two) but rounded my corners and made a velcro strap instead of ribbon. Because I used the vinyl I was able to personalize the roll. Need to measure better the next time so the last letter of the name isn’t under the strap 🙂 I’m giving her the chalk mat tonight. Hope her son likes it.
