How to create laminated fabric /oil cloth? Answered

Does anyone know how to create laminated fabric?  I have some fabric that I would like to laminate so that the coat I create will be waterproof.
I think that the laminated cotton fabric can also be called oil cloth.


Heat n Bond Iron on Vinyl  should do the trick for you.  I haven't actually used this product, but knew it existed from some of my online sewing friends,

IIRC it is also available from places like Joann Fabrics and other sewing retailers.

You need a waterproffing product like Nikwax that you either spray or roll on. There are different kinds depending on what kind of fabric you have. I suggest you apply it to the raw fabric before making your coat, but that's up to you.
