Comments about J&O Fabrics NFL Miami Dolphins Cotton Print Fabric:
I am surprised and disappointed with the quality of this NFL-licensed fabric. When purchasing this cotton fabric, I thought it was of superior quality; unfortunately, that is not the case -- because the fabric is flimsy, not flimsy in the sense of easily torn but flimsy in the sense of its WEAKNESS. It is so weak that a person can see through it when it is close up to the face.
The NFL should be ashamed of itself for putting out such weak quality fabric and not providing the customers with the best cotton fabric available. Because of such weak material, I have to improvise: I bought 2 yards to complete 2 different hats and a shirt, and those will be completed with other robust cotton fabric called BUCKRAM(for stability and shape).
Therefore, keep in mind, when purchasing NFL-licensed fabrics, they are not made with STRONG material -- but rather WEAK/flimsy cotton.
While working and sewing with the fabric to complete a hat together, I realized that it would not be sufficient for stability and shape the hat like I wanted it to be. I also found out when sewing this weak Dolphins' fabric together and open up the seam, the stitches show some small holes in the fabric, which in the long run would cause tear. That is how weak this cotton fabric is.
Therefore, I had to improvise big time. I took BUCKRAM and used it throughout the interior of the hat by taking the hat pattern fabric and sewing in onto the white fabric -- stabilized with aquamarine color thread going across to match the Dolphins' team color.
I worked with many cotton fabrics of different texture/thickness, and this NFL-licensed fabric is one of the WORST fabrics yet. In fact, some poly-cot (i.e., polyester/cotton mix) fabrics are stronger than this fabric.
In general, this NFL-licensed fabric is extremely thin, see-through, weak, flimsy -- and of POOR QUALITY. If one is looking to tailor quality clothes or any kind of apparel, you will have to use other ROBUST materials -- or simply use this fabric as a secondary choice for patch to sew on a thicker material. If not, your project will be a failure and will not last long.
Those who are looking to create clothing or anything with their favorite NFL team should be warned that this fabric is very limited for clothes-making.
