Quilted waterproof fabric is a fantastic option for outdoor clothing
and gear because it is both durable and water resistant. Its combination of quilted polyester and waterproof wadding means that this fabric is strong enough to withstand the elements, but also has a soft sanded finish for comfort and aesthetics. Unlike some other types of waterproofing fabrics, however, this quilted fabric is not lined and the reverse side will show your stitching and wadding. This can impact the overall look of your finished product and should be taken into account when designing your project.
This quilted waterproof fabric is made from deadstock dressmaking fabric, which is fabric that has been saved from landfill or destruction. This makes it a great choice for customers who want to reduce their environmental footprint as well as those looking for unique fabric designs. This fabric is 138cm wide and is suitable for a variety of different projects, including coats, gilets, jackets, ruck sacks, and wash bags.
PUL fabric is made from a polyester knit with a laminate coating on one side. This coating is similar to cling film, making the fabric waterproof no matter which side is facing the inside of your garment or bag. This type of fabric is more environmentally friendly than other fully waterproof options, such as ripstop or taffeta, but it does not have as much durability.

Waterproofing fabric is a useful technique for any sewing project, from a simple pouch to a complex quilted jacket or tent. There are several different methods for waterproofing fabric, but they all involve a layer of waterproof material being quilted into or onto the fabric. These layers are then sewn together to create the final item.
There are a number of different ways to make your own quilted waterproof fabric, but most involve a waterproofing chemical or spray. The most common of these is polyurethane, which can be bought in a spray can and applied to the fabric before sewing. It is a good idea to test this on a scrap piece of your chosen fabric before you start, to ensure it does not damage or stain the fabric.
Another popular method for waterproofing fabric is to use a basting spray, which is an aerosol glue that can be used to stick the layers of your quilt together before sewing. This is a great alternative to hand basting, which can be very time consuming. This type of spray is available from many sewing stores and can be purchased in a variety of colours to match your project. It is important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for using this product.
