Laminated cotton is just what the name implies–a base of quilting-weight cotton fabric topped by a clear polyurethane coating. The clear coating on the fabric's right side repels moisture, while the cotton backing adds warmth, strength and drape. <USPRLVPSJSV[OSHTPUH[LKJV[[VUPZÅL_PISL UV[Z[PɈHUKOHZUVJOLTPJHSZTLSS0[ZH great choice for baby bibs, aprons, splat mats, placemats, tablecloths, pencil cases, accessory bags, book covers, lunch bags, totes, handbags, pet bowl mats, shower curtains, rain coats, umbrellas, and a lot more. There's no need to prewash laminated cotton; the clear coating prevents shrinkage. To clean, simply wipe the laminated side with a damp cloth. If machine washing becomes necessary, wash on a gentle or delicate cycle and air dry. To avoid creases and wrinkles, roll laminated cotton onto a cardboard tube for shipping or storing. Never use a hot iron directly on the SHTPUH[L¶[OLJVH[PUN^PSSTLS[<ZLHWYLZZing cloth between the laminate and iron, or iron only on the cotton backing.

If you must pin, pin only within the seam allowances. Laminates can shift while sewing; clothespins, paper clips, binder clips and even hair clips can be used to temporarily hold layers together. If you have to re-sew a seam, try to follow the exact stitching line to help hide holes, or sew slightly outside the seam line, so that the holes will be hidden in the seam allowance. When sewing laminated cotton, sew slowly and use a slightly longer stitch length (2.7– 3.0mm) to avoid unnecessarily perforating [OLMHIYPJ<ZLHZPaLVY ZOHYW needle.
