What is Eco-PUL, you ask? Here’s a short description and you can read more about it here.
PUL fabric by Eco-PUL™ starts with lightweight polyester interlock (knit) fabric. The polyester interlock is paired with TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane), a thin stretchy plastic film. These two components are bonded together into a single fabric using a combination of heat, pressure, and adhesive.
So to sum it up, it means that it’s solvent-free, environmentally friendly, releases no volatile organics, machine washable and food safe!
I know you’re just dying to make one so here’s the super easy tutorial. If you’re a beginner you can do this!
What you will need:
Eco-Pul fabric for the lining
Fabric for outside-either Eco-Pul or cotton
(Keep in mind Eco-Pul is waterproof)
Velcro-Iron on or sew on
**I recommend pre-washing your fabric first!** Eco-pul will not shrink, but if you use cotton it will!
To start, cut both pieces of fabric 16 x 8.
Cut one end in a half circle using a plate as your guide.
Isn’t that cute?
Pin right sides together and sew all the way around leaving an opening to turn right side out.
Press with an iron.
Cut along the half circle for turning.
Turn right side out. No need to sew up the opening, we will do that when we sew the edges, next.
Fold the end about 3/4 from the top. Line up where your velcro will go and sew or iron on your velcro.
Next line up the edges, pin and sew in place.
That’s it! You can whip these out in 30 minutes or less, they are sew easy!
