Translucent, the new waterproof fabric to sew raincoats, rain hats or toiletry bags

Translucent, this is the name of the new translucent and waterproof fabric for sewing raincoats, rain hats, or toiletry bags. A very innovative fabric that combines the qualities of waterproof fabrics on both sides, thanks to its 100% TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) composition. A non-woven fabric (sheet) with an original translucent effect on which we have printed our designs to achieve a very particular result of fun semi-transparencies. Specially designed to make layers and raincoats for the whole family. Water-resistant, it repels water drops and can be the ideal material for a multitude of projects such as water hats, toiletry bags, beach bags, wallets, etc.

In the new spring – summer 2021 fabric collection we have included 4 prints in this new material. Magical unicorns, wild leopards, happy suns, and sweet rhinos are the main characters on this new very special fabric.

We leave you a series of recommendations or help with making before getting to know us one by one:

  • Use a Universal needle, thickness 80 / 90.
  • Iron the fabric with a piece of cotton over it at a low temperature.
  • Do not use pins to hold the fabrics together, since the holes are marked. Use wonder clips or tape.
  • If the fabric does not flow smoothly through your sewing machine, use a double feed foot.


The pattern of this fabric will delight lovers of unicorns and rainbows. A magical world is full of color with which to sew garments as unique as this raincoat. The raincoat pattern can be found in our sewing pattern magazine FLY SS21 for sizes from 12 months to 12 years.



Sweet rhinos that love to bathe on the beach or in the pool. The blue, yellow, and gray colors in pastel tones make this pattern the most suitable for the little ones in the house.
