Compared to the laminates a few decades ago, these ones are a dream. Soft, supple, easy to work with, can iron one side, pliable and oh so comfy.
The downside being you can't really pin as it leaves a hole, patching is tricky as it is thicker than cotton and without a teflon foot for your machine, you will be ready to pitch it into a corner.
Having said all of that, I had some gorgeous laminate from Amanda's second line of fabric 'Sugar and Spice'. I finally got to work and made a rain poncho, complete with lined hood and trim around the bottom and a front pocket.
And please don't comment that I am not 'model material', I already know that=)
On the quilting front, I have two on the go. Next week, we better have a giveaway to celebrate 500 posts. Two more to go till the big 500th one!
To all my fellow Canadians, Happy Thanksgiving! Hope you put on your fat pants for all that turkey to be consumed.
