I've been busy sourcing oilcloth for an upcoming class making handy roll up chalkcloth placemats for kids. I've seen lots of variations of this idea. I knew I wanted mine to be made of oilcloth so it was easily wipeclean. This way the back can be used as a placemat once the food arrives! I also knew I wanted pockets for the chalk and a sponge to wipe off the designs and start again! So this is what I came up with.
The top pocket will hold a sponge and the bottom pocket is split into two to hold sticks of chalk.
I'm teaching this as a class if you are local to Hartley Wintney, on Wednesday 28th May.
