  • Details
    * * * This is a wipe clean fabric sold in 50cm increments * * * This fabric is extra width 145cm (56") and is sold by the 1/2 metre (50cm), so if you purchase one unit you will receive 50cm x 145cm. Multiple quantities will be cut in a continuous length. Please note, the laminated coating stops short of the selvedge by about 1.5cm.

    A striking pattern of purple, salmon pink, dark green and mustard butterflies on an off white background, designed by Elizabeth Olwen for Cloud 9 Fabrics. For an idea of scale, each butterfly measures about 1.5".

    This is a high quality, 100% certified organic cotton from Cloud 9 Fabrics with a matte polyurethane (PU) waterproof coating. The Cloud 9 range of laminated fabrics do not contain phthalates, harmful dyes, or any other toxic substances that are present in PVC coated laminates or traditional oilcloth. Their laminated cottons are also much better for the environment during the production process.

    The fabric is soft, light weight, flexible and can be used for items such as raincoats, bibs, aprons, shower caps, splash mats and seat covers. Ideal for bag making too, I use this fabric to make wash bags and shoulder bags. Laminated cotton is not as tough to sew as oilcloth. You can fuse woven cotton interfacing to the cotton backing of this fabric, and with a matte finish, it is easier to sew than other 'stickier' waterproof fabrics.

    Tips on sewing laminated cotton:

    ✄ When cutting laminated cotton, you can trace on the back of the fabric with a pencil, invisible pen or tailor’s chalk.

    ✄ Pins will leave holes and can bend on laminate! Either pin in the seam allowance or use wonder clips or small bulldog clips.

    ✄ You can iron the back of laminated cotton on a low setting to remove any creases. Do not iron on the coated side!

    ✄ Finger press any seams before topstitching and use clips/pegs to keep the seams flat.

    ✄ A walking foot, roller foot or Teflon foot is recommended when topstitching laminated fabric to prevent the foot from dragging or sticking to the coated side of the fabric. For this matte laminated cotton, my normal presser foot works just fine. If you don’t have a special foot, try applying a small strip of Scotch tape on your machine’s ordinary foot.

    ✄ A sharp size 14-16 denim needle is recommended.

    The fabric will be packed folded - if there are any creases simply iron lightly on the back on a low heat.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Custom and personalized orders

    Personalised and customised items are non refundable. For custom items where fabrics have been obtained especially for your order, a pattern has been upscaled or downscaled to a custom size, a pattern has been modified or a bag has been created to your personal specification or personalised with a name cannot be returned for a refund as these are one of a kind products made just for you! Please ensure that you are completely happy with a custom bag description before you make payment.

    Care instructions

    My bags are handcrafted with the greatest care using high quality materials, interfacings and metal hardware. Never overload your bag with heavy items as this will cause wear and tear, spoil the shape of the bag and put a strain on the strap. Do not immerse my bags in water, or a washing machine! The layers of special interlining, interfacing and lining could displace or shrink in the wash and any metal hardware will become damaged. For fabric bags only: spot clean with a mild soap solution. Touch up any creases with an iron on a low setting. For bags with faux leather or laminated (wipe clean) fabric:Spot clean with a mild soap solution. Wipe clean gently with a soft damp cloth. Do not iron!

    Shipping to Germany

    I confirm that Sew Sofia is registered with Stiftung Zentrale Stelle Verpackungsregister (ZSVR). My Dual System Licensing partner for the collection, sorting & recycling of the packaging is ACTIVATE by RECLAY.
    As a consumer, please ensure that all received packaging is disposed of in the correct recycling containers: Blue for all paper & cardboard and Yellow for all plastics.

    Gift wrapping and packaging

    I wrap my products in brown paper, tissue paper or bubble wrap depending on the item and use strong polythene mailing bags to ensure the parcel is waterproof. Larger bags will be packaged in a sturdy box. If you wish to send an item directly to someone as a gift, let me know and I will wrap it in pretty tissue paper and be sure not to include an invoice or price details with their parcel.

    Lost or unclaimed parcels

    Sew Sofia is not responsible for customs duty or brokerage fees on international orders. These will have to be paid by the customer where applicable.

    If an item is returned to me by the Royal Mail as unclaimed I will contact you to arrange for the item to be redelivered as soon as possible. Please respect that if such a situation occurs there will be an extra charge for postage to cover the cost of resending the item for you.

    Sew Sofia cannot be held responsible for items lost once they have been handed to the Royal Mail for delivery both in the UK and when being posted to overseas locations. I will always obtain a certificate of postage to trace delivery of goods.
