Smart-Fab Review

I recently received 3 rolls of Smart-Fab to review. Smart-Fab is an alternative to paper and cloth. It comes in a variety of bright, non-fading colors. The non-woven fabric is easy to cut, fold, glue, sew, staple, paint and draw on. Smart-Fab is strong, doesn't fray, and can be used for all sorts of things. You can find out more about Smart-Fab in this video.
Right away I wanted to see if I could embroider on Smart-Fab. It is kind of thin, so I double the fabric before embroidering and sewing.
 Then I sewed it into a tote bag. I liked how it turned out!!
I also used it for a craft at our Girl Scout meeting. Our troop was working on their Unique Me patch and we did Super Me capes. I cut out a cape shape, added a dot of sticky Velcro, and had the girls decorate with markers. They had lots of fun!!
Here is a sneak peak at the current project I am working on with Smart Fab!!
I really liked Smart-Fab and would like to get more to work with. My only issue is that it's quite thin, so when I sew or embroider I have to double the fabric.
