Hi all,

I apologise if this is definitely not the forum for this kind of thing. I've been scouring the internet for a fix and you guys seem like the closest I can get to some help.
(on the plus, if this isn't the right place, I've found an awesome crafting community!)


My toddler has a super cute rain jacket that the website says is made of polyurethane. It's started to bubble and wrinkle in places (like how it does before peeling) and I wanted to fix it before this happened.
I could probably return it but I know they have stopped doing this one and I really like it.
My mind is thinking if I applied some heat it might stick it back together but I don't want to make the problem worse and separate more of the plasticy stuff from the backing.

Any ideas?

Thanks for reading and I apologise again if this isn't the right place.

Welcome to Craftster. This is a great place to ask your question. Unfortunately, I don't know the answer. I've tried looking it up and can't find anything that will help. I'm not sure if it is possible to fix or not. Hopefully someone who does know will see this post.

Thank you for the welcome and thank you for your reply.
I really hope it's something that I can fix. It was too expensive for half a years wear and I struggle to find nice boys clothes.
I noticed last night that it's really wrinkly and bubbled by the bum where he sits down so I might just try to apply an iron through a towel and see if I can re-stick it. It's worth a try.

Thanks again!
