    Soaked...From Connecting Threads

    Cute, cute, cute fabric from Connecting Threads came to my email today. Some of it is laminated and would make adorable raincoats for kiddoes! Maybe even for me!!

    Not 'connected' to them, just thought the idea was darling!

    My daughter keeps thinking she needs a raincoat from those fabrics, too!

    I got my catalog yesterday and we also got 4 1/4 inches of rain at the same time. I had to hang the catalog up to dry and I haven't looked at it yet. Got the email today about the new 'saoked' collection. I hope the next collection isn't 'snowed in.'

    I haven't gotten any laminated fabric yet, but I can see a need for it.

    I participated in a focus group at CT a few months ago. They showed us the laminated fabric, and it is really nice. I'm looking forward to seeing what people make with it.

    LOL we had the same rain you did. I have never seen it rain that heavy before. I may need that fabric too.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    The City Quilter in NYC had a class a few months ago on working with laminates. Of course, I missed it. The fabrics from the Connecting Threads are cute but I need something bright to cheer me up on a rainy day . I would like orange, yellow, pink, red...

    Yes, I was looking at the collection - especially the laminates. Spotted the free pattern for the toddlers rain coat and I MUST make it for my grand-daughter (she lives in England, it will come in handy!).

    Need to find out more about the laminates ... but I really want to make that raincoat!!!

    I also wish they came in brighter colors, pinks, yellows and oranges.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I used some laminated fabric for throw pillows for our outside porch swing last year. I was thrilled at how they sewed up but so disappointed a few months later when they had faded over 80% of their color. The porch is covered and I didn't think indirect sun would be a problem so quickly.

    The laminated fabrics look interesting. I may have to try them out! Their prices are decent too!

    I'm wondering how the laminated fabric would hold up for reusable grocery bags? Does anyone have any experience with this? Love the idea of laminated fabric!!

    LOL! I just got my catalog this week, too & want tons of stuff from it. I love the fall/winter batiks! They just have such cute stuff! And I think their 40% off books sale is still on!

    Maybe if this collection sells well, they'll have other colors. I saw some someplace else the other day... Fabric.com maybe?

    Here is a link to a Sew It All show where they took a vinyl shower curtain and made it into a raincoat. I was thinking you could use the laminates the same way.
