While shopping one day my Mom ran across this vinyl tablecloth for $4.99.
It was cute, not the typical red and white check or floral patterns that you usually see.
It was cheap.
Then I hemmed it with a zigzag stitch all the way around.
Done... that was it! It works great! It isn't quite as heavy-duty as oilcloth would be... but I have so much table cloth left that whenever this mat wears out I can make another one very quickly and easily!
On a side note... I also made a bib to match! (Though it's way too big and probably won't really fit Baby Girl until she's 5... or 9... oh well!
