I'm cutting out pul liners for bibs I'm making. I've used this stuff before and while it works well as a waterproof layer, I truly hate working with it. It is the slipperiest, slidy, pita stuff to cut out. I trace the pattern and rotary cut it, and it slides around like some no stick sprayed it! Let's not even talk about sewing with it. Any suggestions for this useful, but truly annoying fabric?

I use KK2000, a temporary basting spray when I make diaper covers. I stick the pul to the inside fleece layer before I sew. Then I bind the edges with foldover elastic using a 3 step zigzag.

My grandmother taught me to sew when I was 10, and I've been sewing ever since.

Sorry, I forgot the watch the acronym overuse again. Pul is polyurethane laminate. It is used mostly for diaper covers, it's basically waterproof. It's a polyester knit laminated to polyester film. Joann carries it here. I use it for a waterproof layer in the bibs. It comes in lots of colors and prints, some are really cute for diaper covers. The color doesn't matter to me since it's hidden in the bibs. The color is in one side, and white on the other. It's a very slippery sucker to work with. Spraying it to stick it to the other layers is a good idea, I'll have to try it.
Now how to make it sit still while I trace and cut it out is another story. I use a cardboard template and pattern weights, but it is still a pita But they are getting cut today come hell or high water, I'm expecting both actually. Sigh..
