Laminated cotton for sofa slipcover?
Hi girls! Haven't been on here for a while!! I have a white slip covered sofa and I'm really getting sick of bringing it to the laundromat as it won't fit into my washer. I was thinking of buying some PUL or similar laminated material and making slipcovers from that but it doesn't seem like slipcovers are done in those materials. There is no mention of doing that on the internet. I only see that it's used for smaller projects. Why? Is it so much more expensive than cotton canvas which is what my slipcovers are now? Would it be hard to sew in that large of a piece? I would want to edge it with piping, would that be possible?
I'd use some stain guard on reg. fabric but I heard it doesn't work that well and don't want leather or microfabric.
