Yesterday I bought some oilcloth to make a table cloth but, being a sewing novice, I'm not sure if I actually have to do anything with it? It is backed with a softer fabric but will it fray? Should I sew a seam into it? Can you sew into oilcloth with a regular needle/sewing machine? Sorry for all the questions, all answers will be appreciated
I have oilcloth and never hemmed it or anything. In my home they last about 12 - 18 months - not because they fray (at all) but because my children get ink and paint on them - tomato sauce also stains them.
