I just read about this. Anyone have experience using it?

I was thinking that I could maybe use it to make some of my fabric waterproof for maybe placemats or interesting looking handbags...

I found it at JoAnn's in the section with the gromits, fabric stabilizer, etc

It comes already packaged, 2 yrds long and something like 18" wide.

I bought that by mistake once (I wanted the interfacing) and played with it a bit since I didn't notice until I opened the package.  It's VERY plasticky when done.  I'd say it would work for stuff like placemats, maybe purses, but not clothes.  It's thick, too... it's not like a thin coat of plastic like some of the sealed backcloth.  (My roommate actually used some of it to cover over a broken tail light on his car for a few weeks... it's THAT thick)

I bet it would be good for a wet bag for cloth diapers. Hmmm.

I have to agree with kellyhelene, it's super thick!  I got it to fuse to this wonderful Alexander Henry fabric I had to make into a diaper bag.  It was a beast to sew (think sewing thick vinyl) the corners.  *sigh* Needless to say, I'm not going to use it again, unless it's for the other things mentioned (placemats, etc).

I've used this product quite a lot in my sewing....lining lunch bags, etc.  If you follow the directions precisely, there is usually not a problem. It does need to be ironed on to the fabric. It becomes "one with the fabric" and is very difficult to remove.  If you cut it a bit short of the seams, you don't need to sew it into the seam and it's less bulky, particularly at the corners. It really is a very good product. It does come different mil and in either gloss finish or matte finish, depending on what you want to use it for.  Hope you try it again on a project that needs waterproofing.  It would be perfect for wet bags.

I used it for placemats and it is great. I fused the vinyl to the front fabric and the back fabric, sandwiched a thin layer of batting in between, and serged around the edges.

I've used it & it is pretty good stuff. The only thing is you cannot pin anything you're adhering to - you'll get holes & you cannot iron directly on it or you will melt it. Also, if you iron it to the right side of your fabric that's inside out, when you go to turn it, put something in between the vinyl layers or else the vinyl will stick to each other & it will be hard to turn. You also won't be able to machine wash what ever you iron it to (maybe spot clean or gently hand wash, not wringing out fabric).

I've used it to make candy wrapper zip pouches & they come out pretty cute. It would be good for lining make up bags & lunch bags.
