I found this information at Fabric.com and thought if anyone was going to work with the new laminated fabrics they might want to read this first...

DH has racks of vinyl I have used over the years for lots of projects. I do see myself using this fabric. Placemats that match a decor, lunchbags, large waterproofed totes. Didn't read thru the whole page on website, but what I read was pretty much what I had done in the past.

I saw it for the first time this week in a catalog, perhaps Clotilde? I was doubtful until I saw a few of the projects like lunch bags and baby bibs. The ponchos sound like a great idea too.

It is in Connecting Threads. I liked the rain poncho too-we just don't get enough rain for it to be useful down here. lol!

You could come here usual we have more rain and you try out your poncho TxMaryQuilters
Or you visit each of us on the forum and see who has more rain. Just a thought.

Very helpful. I've been thinking of making a lunch bag. Want something that I can easily wipe off, but don't need anything insulated. We have a refrigerator at work, so don't need insulation. I like the idea of making one because I can make it exactly the right size for the typical containers I bring in my lunch.

Ive seen a lot of bags made from laminated fabric, sure keeps them nice and clean, placemats is a great idea and poncho's, perhaps you could use yours as a dust protector poncho TxMary!!!
