Waterproof Oxford - Super Science Print
Waterproof Oxford Fabric
Sew your own diaper bags and more with our waterproof 100% polyester oxford cloth. Printed with a great design, finished with DWR (durable water repellent), and laminated with black polyurethane on the back. The fabric surface has a woven texture, and digital printing with textural and color variations give it a unique character. Use for diaper bags, tote bags, purses, and carry cases. You can even use it for luggage, seat covers, dog beds, picnic blankets, and any place you need to keep dry and protected. We recommend our binding FOE or 1 inch FOE for finishing the edges.
Waterproof Oxford feels and performs like a heavy duty fabric, but doesn't have any of the usual sewing irritations of heavy weight material (thickness, difficulty folding & cutting, etc.). This makes the waterproof oxford a lot more versatile, as there isn't any rigid stiffness or bulky weight to limit it's uses.
- Both sides of the fabric are waterproof
- Medium-weight, and very durable
- Black polyurethane back does not stain or show dirt
- Designed and printed in USA

The fabric may have fold lines in it from shipping. Toss in a warm dryer for a few minutes or iron on low to remove folds. Do not prewash. We recommend wiping clean with a damp cloth. Occasional machine wash is ok, but we do not recommend frequent machine washing. We have not done extensive wash testing because we consider this a sturdier utility type fabric meant for items that do not need to be washed frequently. Hang to dry.
Use a universal needle and 100% polyester thread. This fabric does not stretch or shrink. The fabric cuts very nicely - even with pinking shears. It sews smoothly and does not stick to the presser foot or feed dogs like laminated cotton can. To avoid pinprick marks when piecing layers together, use clips or pin inside the seam allowance.
How is Waterproof Oxford different from PUL Fabric?
PUL fabric is meant to be worn, so it stretches and it breathes for comfort. Waterproof Oxford is meant for useful items such as diaper bags. It is a bit stiffer, does not stretch, and water beads up on both sides of it. Also, PUL Fabric has a clear polyurethane laminate on the back; Waterproof Oxford has a thicker black polyurethane laminate.
Our fabric is first quality and we are sure you will be pleased. Due to the fact that fabric yardage is cut to customer specification, it may be returned ONLY if uncut and unwashed, clean and free of odors, and within 45 days of shipping.
