I made a new double pouch; it is a little wrinkly because…
it’s made with laminated fabric.
I always wanted to buy laminated fabric but as it is more expensive and bulkier than the regular cotton, it is still on my wish list.
But a few months ago I had a chance to buy “Lamifix” in Romania (Kreativshop) and today I finally laminated fabric.
I used the product manufactured by Freudenberg Germany ; Pellon also have such a product, they are probably similar.
Lamifix is a new iron-on transparent film that can be fixed to fabric, protecting it from getting dirty.
After I applied the film to fabric, the colors of the fabric faded a little.
I read a few tips for working with laminate fabric but I did not need to use them; at least, the one that says it is difficult to move the fabric under the presser foot and you need a special foot or you have to use some tricks if you want to stitch with the regular foot.
So I stitched this double pouch without any problem! And everything I used was laminated. When I had to turn the pouch from one side to the other, I really thought that I have to throw everything to the trash; but with a little patience and a final press, the pouch is looking really good.
Now, when my little nephew Alex visits with us, my sister Nico has a pouch to store all his medicine. She always brings them in a plastic bag that is always too small !
Have a great weekend,
