What is laminated fabric?

If you remember the old fashioned oilcloth fabric - this ISN'T it.  Instead think of high quality cotton fabric with a thin waterproof layer professionally applied. Our laminated fabric is soft, pliable, washable, wipeable and dryable - so pliable it can be gathered! Many people still search using the term "oilcloth" so we include it as a searchable term - but true oilcloth is a petroleum product and not safe for use in products for children.

What can you make with laminated fabric?

Perfect for raincoats, bibs, splat mats, placemats, tablecloths, wet bags, trash bags, and snack bags. All my laminated cotton fabric prints are CPSIA approved (ask for certification if you sell children's products).

How do you sew laminated fabric?

Yes - there are some great ways to make sewing on laminated fabric easier.  You can view the techniques we use on our page "sewing tips".

What's the difference between oilcloth and laminated cotton fabric?

Oilcloth is stiffer and NOT CPSIA compliant due to toxins not allowed in children's products.  I'm also concerned about imported laminated that has not been tested for CPSIA compliance.   Please ASK for written certification if you are selling children's products (required in the USA) when you place your order.
