Just Laminates Fabric Review, Giveaway & Special Offer!



I'm really excited to share this post today for many reasons.  One being I am a huge fan of Laminated Cotton Fabric.  It's terrific - durable, versatile and so very cool looking.  Perfect for bags, raincoats, place mats, or anything else you want to be wipeable.  And you have the chance to score some for yourself today!  


As many of you know I'm kind of the Laminated Cotton Project Queen from all the tutorials I've made using it.  Finding a great selection (and at a great price) is not always easy though.  Which is why I was so happy to discover Just Laminates.  




The shop name says it all: loads of laminate fabrics.  Amy Butler, Timeless Treasures, Riley Blake, Michael Miller, Joel Dewberry - they've got 'em all.



And lots of pretty patterns specifically for them:



They've even got the new Babyville PUL prints for all the diaper making mamas out there. 




But in case you're still on the fence about trying laminated cotton, this is the fabric you need to see:




Deb, the lovely owner of Just Laminates, sent me a panel of the new "Fiona Fancy" by Lila Tueller to try out and it was great!  These panels make it super easy to make a trio of professional looking laminated items in no time at all:  




The genius is that all the pieces are printed in their ready-to-sew shapes on the fabric so you just cut them out and start sewing.  No patterns required!  And all the instructions are also printed on the panel in simple to follow steps:




The projects themselves are designed for beginners so there are no elaborate techniques or special notions required, so these are ideal for anyone who has wanted to try laminated cotton, but been scared to give it a go. The sunglasses case literally took me minutes to make:




And everything is fully lined so they look as snappy on the inside as they do on the outside:



There are even tags you can sew in for professional look:


These would make great handmade holiday gifts (at a fraction of the cost and time of getting all the gear separately too!).

As a new advertiser here, Just Laminates is extending a special offer for Sew Can Do readers.  For the next two weeks, FREE SHIPPING on all domestic US orders!  Just use the code: THEGREENHEDGEHOG during checkout.  This is a great way to stock up on some fab fabric and save big.

~~AND~~~

Just Laminates has provided me a Blush and an Aqua panel of the "Fiona Fancy" fabric to give away!! 

So there will be TWO fabric winners that can make some of these for themselves!!

  13. I had never seen such fabric before. I am intrigued. I saw a lovely pattern: French inspired cotton laminated fabric by London Portfolio for Michael Miller fabrics. Birds, Butterflies, Roses are featured with shades of pink, rose, black, greens, and teal. LW4783 Pink.

    Thanks for the introduction.
