My New Favorite Waterproof Canvas Fabric!

17 Sep


Fabric Wholesale Direct (FWD) is my new source for waterproof canvas fabric. Previously, I had used and recommended Pro-Tuff waterproof canvas I found at Walmart. The problem with Pro-Tuff is that it only comes in black, blue, grey and green, and it’s getting hard to find.

I found FWD online and noticed that they carried several colors, which was great! The description said it has a waterproof PVC backing, mold and UV resistant qualities, is extremely flexible and resists creasing, and is 60” – 62” wide. I was really interested in the flexible, crease resistant qualities because I found the Pro-Tuff canvas backing to be a bit stiff and showed a lot of creases. In addition, their shipping is a flat $6.99 (free with $75+ order), which is great considering the weight of the fabric.

I decided to give it a try and ordered some black. Boy was I glad I did! The fabric WAS nice and flexible and didn’t crease and was very easy to cut and sew.

Since finding this waterproof canvas fabric, I’ve made the following:

My Laundry Hamper with Drawstring Laundry Bag that can also be used as a storage hamper.

This lined Ohio State Travel Bag and Dopp Toiletry Bag for my husband and…

These unlined overnight bags for the Grandkids.

FWD also has PRINTED waterproof canvas fabric for just $7.99 a yard! I think I’m going to make
another one of my Shopping Cart Grocery Bags from this print…I can’t wait to see how it turns out!

There are so many items you can make using this waterproof canvas! If you need some ideas, here’s
some of my sewing patterns that would work, and they’d make great holiday gifts too!

 

Golf Bag Cooler


First Aid Bag (with Free Iron On Labels)

 

Expandable Travel Trash Bag

The Little LITTER Bag

Dog Treat Bag with Poop Bag Dispenser

Happy Sewing!!!
