Oilcloth Fabric - Perfect for outdoors and a fun retro look!

I’m feeling very June Cleaver …

minus the perfectly coiffed hair, starched apron and wearing heels while vacuuming thing.


I’ll definitely be the hostest with the mostest this summer as I liven up my yard with these bold, retro prints of my new oilcloth pillows from Modern June.

I love these fun, retro oilcloth pillows!  Perfect for outdoors

I am seriously in love.

The quality is amazing – each zipper is hidden and they are perfect for outside (although I won’t leave them out in a downpour)!

Oilcloth pillows - perfect for outdoors! LOVE the fun prints!

I stumbled across this GENIUS idea from Online Fabric Store while searching for pillow inserts!

Use a pillow insert two inches bigger than your pillow cover –  it makes them extra plump!

So my 16″x16″ pillow covers were stuffed with an 18″x18″ pillow inserts that are weather resistant from Online Fabric Store – perfect for outside!

Polyfill Outdoor Pillow Inserts

Modern June makes more than just pillows and oilcloth!  I love her chalk cloth, banners and fun sewing kits (the tote bags are adorable).

Not to mention she’s written two books.

    I love the apples and hibiscus. Every year when I go to Brimfield, MA for fun, I look at the oil cloths and drool. I am very artistic and creative but I do not sew. I wish I did.

  77. Wow! These are soooo cute!! Loved the laminated cotton too. For a pillow, I’m thinking APPLES GREEN & POLKA DOT BLACK with the GINGHAM BLACK as trim would be cute, no? Also really loving the FAUX BOIS, but not sure what I’d do with em yet? Maybe some placemats?? Or FAUX BOIS BIRCH & LACE GOLD with another as trim for a separate pillow? Hmmm… Well seeing as I don’t have a porch, I’ve got time to ponder… =)
