Hemma Design

Hemma Design derives its namesake from the Swedish phrase for "at home," and that's exactly where their gorgeous patterns thrive. "Whether you sew, quilt, embroider, knit, or do any kind of needlework, [Hemma] believe[s] that handicrafts create a happier world." Check out their website for more insight into not just "the finished product" but the process of creating- and as always, make sure to use oilcloth with just about any of these great patterns." This "Lilla Handlebar Basket Pattern" showcases both our Polka Dot Red and Gingham Red oilcloth prints!

Make Your Own KitchenAid Cover with Oilcloth

Sew Take a Hike is a crafty blog that features different projects involving "sewing, baking, crocheting, paper making, and knitting." We love that Penny, the creative force behind the website, offers her readers great patterns- many of which would be fantastic if made with oilcloth! Penny states that Sew Take a Hike is "old country style mixed with a modern bend"...sounds like oilcloth in a nutshell! 
This past April, Sew Take a Hike supplied readers with a pattern for a KitchenAid. The basic fabric used to create this classic KitchenAid cover can easily be replaced with oilcloth. Don't forget that oilcloth comes in over 50 prints and patterns! You can pick a classic gingham, a vibrant floral, or even an animal print to create your personalized KitchenAid cover!
