Canvas Travel bag with Odicoat

I have been wondering about what would happen if I applied Odicoat to a finished bag. I haven’t been brave enough to try it on a bag I have made. After returning from my trip, I decided to try it on the bag I used as a handbag.

I am pretty pleased with how it came out. This bag is made from some kind of canvas. It is a very heavy fabric.

I applied the Odicoat to the bottom of the bag only. It turned out that the bottom became stiffer. It’s also slightly sticky or, maybe, just not smooth.

I have heard that Odicoat shrinks up fabric. I didn’t see that in this bag. Still, the Odicoat will keep the bottom of this bag clean.

I also don’t think this is a great example of what can happen with regular quilting cotton.
