Oh my goodness, this is so super fantastic! It sews even smoother than regular fabric.

I just started sewing, and I feel bad using up real fabric on my crappy experiments, and this is ideal practice. Also, I will definitely try to use it as interfacing. Would you suggest sewing it in or fusing it to cloth?

Thanks!

do you think I should use the foot  for vinyl/leather like fabrics (i.e. the non metal one)?
also, can I use zig zag with this (just got a sewing machine so I'm a bit of a noob with it anyhow.)

Great idea!!

Do you think I could do this with a steam iron or would that muck everything up? It's a pain to get all the water out of my iron.

Love this idea!!!!!

I have a question though, can this plastic fabric be cleaned in the washer and dryer? 

I am making some bibs for a friend's son who is 8 and has special needs.  He drools alot, so they have him wear bibs.  I thought of sandwiching this plastic fabric between the layers so it keeps the moisture away from his body, but don't want to ruin the bibs, or their washer and dryer, if it causes the plastic fabric to break down when it is cleaned.

Has anyone put it in the washer/dryer and if so, how does it hold up?

Thanks!
