Chalk Cloth Tote

I think this tote has been one of the funnest projects I have done.  The end result is awesome.  My daughter just loves it too.  Chalk cloth?  What is chalk cloth?  Well it is a vinyl fabric that is a chalk board.  It’s awesome and there is so many things you can make out of it.  You can find it here if you are interested in making one, but let me tell you it is not the easiest fabric to work with.  If you have sewn with vinyl fabric or oilcloth than you know what I’m talking about.

It’s just a simple tote pattern the easier the pattern the better because once this fabric has a hole in it, that’s it.  There is no tearing out seams or going back.  I do have to say I am very rough on my bags and the oilcloth has held up great.  And if you get it dirty just wipe it clean…  Works great as a beach bag too (wet clothes and sand).  I just love it.

Have fun.

    • Ok, I thought I ptseod my dilemia but I guess not.I was working on this last week. My problem is that I can’t get my felted wool to advance under the needle. It’s too thick! Is there a way to change the height of the presser foot on a sewing machine (not just lift it up and down but raise it for this project)? Otherwise, I may have to hand sew it and I don’t think it’ll be as strong. I’ve read my manual and looked online but nothing so far.I have a cheapie Singer Simple machine…$99 special from Wally World. I’m a fairly new sewer so this is new to me. Help!!!
