Three Things... Laminated Cotton

Here at the Make Cafe, we have noticed that there are certain fabrics to which people are drawn, but we continually hear the same question:

"That's GORGEOUS... but what would you do with it???"

To help you find some inspiration, we thought we'd do a regular post called "Three Things..." 

Three ideas for how to use a specific fabric types or fabric line. 

This week, we have a three ideas for what to do with laminated cotton. 

Laminated cotton is quilting weight fabric which has been thinly coated on the printed side with a thin layer of laminate. This makes it water resistant. It is a really versatile fabrics, suitable for all sorts of things.
