I am making dodger. I saw the Sailrite video and noticed a unique material they used for the pattern? What material is that?  What options are there for materials for making a pattern?

Hi Tom,
The material is called Dura Scrim. It is great stuff! The key is to get a material that has little stretch in any direction and is clear enough to see through for patterning. This stuff is the best in the market:

The Dura Skrim looks like a very good option.
 
When I made the patterns for my enclosure I used the thickest clear poly sheeting available from the local home construction store.

Thanks for the fast answer to the pattern question.
New question.

When I sew on a binder along the perimeter I see a binder attachment tool to help fold over the binder material. But some binder sold at Sailrite it already folded over. Would I still use a binder attachment with the pre-folded binder?

The edges of the binding are folded under to prevent raw edges. But this has nothing to do with folding the binding over the raw fabric edge to cap and protect the edge. In other words, you do use the binding that we offer in the binder attachments.

  This 1" Binding Tape Maker is used to create your own binding tape, instead of using the multitude of available tapes.
