A few months ago I bought a yard and a half of laminated fabric. Well last night I couldn’t sleep so I got crafty. I found a tutorial for a “Big Blue IKEA Bag” by Miss Make and altered it by adding a lining and a pocket. This bag is HUGE! I’m not sure what I will do with it, but it was fun to make. The most difficult part about sewing with the laminated fabric was the topstitching. My sewing machine seemed to have a hard time stitching through all of the layers.
At a recent Home EC class I taught a class on zippers. I chose an easy project, making cosmetic bags. Since laminated fabric is so expensive, I laminated some fabric using an iron on Laminating paper. The fabric looked great at first, but as I worked with it during my project, the fabric began to wrinkle. Here is a picture of the cosmetic bag I made using the laminated fabric that I made.
I can’t wait to make some more projects with this fabric. It would be a great fabric for a lunch box. 😉
