I bought a brand new, 20 oz can of Magic Sizing when I started this project. I wanted to give the fabric a little body when I went to cut it, so it wouldn't skew on me.

The can is nearly empty. Oy.

Damn, I wish they did something like that over here. :( The fabric seems to be treated with something similar when new, but then it has to be washed before cutting and it ends up all floppy.

Sheet metal, that's the answer...

No spray starch? It's pretty much the same thing. My fabric was treated like that, then I washed it to pre-shrink it, and then sprayed it with the sizing as I ironed it. The only reason I didn't use spray starch is that I remember it flaking something horrible when I was in the military. This stuff doesn't flake.
