Going to make window panels ... watched video on hidden zippers .... how do you crease the Stamoid so it stays folded (somewhat anyway) like you did the Sunbrella?  I don't want to stretch the vinyl .. do you use heat??

The best thing to do is to use basting tape to stick seams and hems down prior to sewing. Use a product from this link:

You may also lightly score the back of the Stamoid with a straight slot screwdriver to create a fold line.  A little goes a long way, so don't overdo it.
