I was curious why this fabric is called Oilcloth so I did a little investigating.
Oilcloth, also known as enameled cloth or (in England) American cloth, is a close-woven cotton-duct or linen cloth with a coating of boiled linseed oil to make it waterproof. Historically, pre-Mackintosh, originally oilcloth was one of very few flexible, waterproof materials that was widely available. Leather was expensive—and required regular maintenance if often wetted. Oilcloth was used as an outer waterproof layer for luggage, both wooden trunks and flexible satchels, for carriages, and for weatherproof clothing.


Today we use it for making rain coats, bags, and patio table covers. I've also seen it used when making folded flowers; so cute!
