I love Oilcloth!

I made an oilcloth splat mat a few years ago, so B could have snacks and drinks in the living room... (we didn't do sippy cups).  Let me tell you - It has saved so many carpet cleanings and accidents.  It takes away the stress of possible spills.  Less stress = Happy Mommy!   We use it under our little table and chairs for snacks, we sit on it during messy crafts, we use it while we play with Play Dough, etc.  The list goes on and on...
The kids needed their own little totes for times when we drop them off at Sunday School or YMCA childwatch.  So, I let B pick out the fabric and happily, she picked "boy" colors.  I made their personalized bags with the oilcloth, straps, ribbon, and velcro.  They are the perfect size for a change of clothes and a snack.  B totes her bag to the library every once in a while, too... with little brother following not too far behind.

What a great idea! Where do you even find the time for these awesome little projects? I am once again SO impressed! Love the under the table cloth idea...though I'm a bit frightened you don't do sippy cups? We'd never make it!
