Waterproofing

Last week, I made a pouch out of a place mat. I followed the instructions of Lorrie Nunemaker. The inside of the pouch was water proofed by using a Heat and Bond vinyl product.

This past week, I visited the Austin Sewing Machine and Quilts Shop in Round Rock, Texas. On display was a zipper pouch that had a water proof exterior. I was introduced to the Odicoat product. It is used for water proofing fabric. The feel of the waterproofed fabric was better than the vinyl product I had previously used. It felt softer and smoother. The pouch sample was waterproofed on the outside fabric and the lining fabric. I purchased a jar, and I plan to try it out soon. I found a tutorial on how to apply the Odicoat.
Please send any helpful hints or tips if you have used this product before. I will post my results.
