Little Elephants by Michael Miller is sold by the quarter metre (50x55cm). These kind of squares of fabric are usually called in the industry “fat quarters”. If you would like to buy more than one of these fat quarters, the fabric will be cut on a continuous length with the final quarter of any odd-numbered quantity cut as a what is know as “skinny quarter.” In the case that you wanted to purchase one metre, you just need to write number 4 in the box when buying. If it is two metres, then the number will be 8, and so on. Minimum order is 2 fat quarters.
The table below will hopefully help you decide on your purchase:
1 Unit – 55cm wide x 50cm long
2 Units – 110cm wide x 50cm long
3 Units – 110cm wide x 75cm long
4 Units – 110cm wide x 100cm long
How to take care of your fabric: Usually, before starting a new sewing or craft project, it is a good idea to wash the fabric as it may shrinks later. It is not always mandatory, so it comes to your personal choice. At Coco Wawa we recommend a gentle wash, before and after starting any project and for future care, as it is the best option to take care of the colour and fibers for a much longer period of time. Machine wash cold with the same type of colours, tumble dry for a short time if necessary and iron it at medium temperature.
If you have any questions regarding measurements or anything else, please don’t hesitate to send me an email and I will be more than happy to assist you.
Happy sewing and crafting!
