What are Fabric Precuts?

Fabric Precuts are designed as handy ways to not only organise your craft room, but organise your sewing process. Cut into convenient sizes to suit specific projects, speciality precuts are affordable ways to coordinate your fabric stash and designs. So what are the most common precuts available for you to purchase?

Plain Paper

Mini Charm Pack

Measuring just 2.5" x 2.5", Mini Charm Packs are one of the smallest precuts you can get! Often used as fabric samples, they're also perfect for centrepieces on little projects and using to make embellishments. Generally coming in packs of 42, these cute little square bundles are inexpensive ways to bring your crafting to life.

Patterned Paper

Charm Pack

The big sister to the Mini Charm Pack, this precut generally measures 5" x 5" with around 42 pieces per pack. Perfect for patchwork projects, Charm Packs often supply you with a variety of prints and patterns running along a common theme. The perfectly square size means that you won't need to cut the fabric up into pieces to create a patchwork quilt - most of the hard work has been done for you!

Textured/Embossed Paper

Jelly Roll

Jelly Rolls are arguably the cutest of all fabric cuts, coming in a rolled-up pinwheel shape tied together with a bow. Typically coming with 40 fabric strips, each measuring approximately 2.5" x 44", Jelly Rolls can be used to add extra detail to projects or can even be included in patchwork and quilting. Each fabric strip within the roll comes from the same collection, each varying in colour and design.

Pearlescent Paper

Dessert Roll

The big sister to the Jelly Roll by doubling in width, Dessert Rolls measure 5" x 44" and also come in rolled-up strips. Each roll will generally include 20 fabric cuts, each strip sharing the same common theme but varying in pattern, design or colour. Similarly, you could use these precuts to give your projects that extra edge or to incorporate into quilt designs.

Layer Cake

If a Charm Pack is the big sister to the Mini Charm Pack, then a Layer Cake is their mother! Double the size of Charm Packs, Layer Cakes measure 10" x 10" and often include 42 fabric squares per bundle. Ideal for larger scale projects, the designs are often bigger and more abstract to give you more design opportunities; try cutting them up into a variety of shapes - they're sized perfectly for it!

Glitter

Fat Eighth

Measuring 9" x 22", Fat Eighths are a convenient rectangular shape and can be used in their entirety or cut up and incorporated into a range of projects. These bundles can include anywhere between 20 and 40 cuts, each piece traditionally featuring a different design, pattern or colour variation within a specific theme or collection.

Fat Quarter

The first, and still most favoured, fabric precut bundle that appeared on the market, Fat Quarters are double the height of Fat Eights, so measure a flexible 18" x 22" - think of the possibilities this sized fabric gives you! A quarter of the size of a yard of fabric (hence the name!) and cut into a rectangle, a Fat Quarter bundle generally contains a variety of prints from a collection, each complementing one another perfectly.

Satin Card

Half Yard

Double the width of Fat Quarters, each Half Yard precut bundle often measures 18" x 44" and features a variety of colours, designs and prints from a specific collection. One of the largest sized speciality fabric cuts, Half Yard bundles are perfect for stocking up on fabric or for if you're feeling adventurous and want to take your projects to a huge scale - the uses are near limitless!
