Customer Questions and Answers
Is this cotton percale fabric good, better, or best for making bed sheets? What do you sell that is just right for a queen-size bed sheet without having to piece it together to fit? I keep looking at your fabric wishing to sew bedding. Thank you :-) Deb
Hello! This fabric would be good for sheets, however it would need to have extra width added to the sides to be wide enough. Here is a free pattern on how to add the cloth to get fitted and flat bed sheets: fabrics-store.com/sewing-patterns/classic-linen-bedding-flat-fitted-sheets
How wide is the fabric? Anxious to also see the answer about bed sheets. Thanks.
Good morning! This fabric is 59" wide. You would need to add panels to the sides to get the needed width for sheets. We have a free pattern on how to do that here: fabrics-store.com/sewing-patterns/classic-linen-bedding-flat-fitted-sheets
What is the width of this fabric?
I would like to make a little blue jacket (Peter rabbit) for my son, I'd like to use this as a lining. Can you recommend a light blue linen to coordinate? I was thinking the allure blue. It's hard to tell through a screen
In the middleweight linen we do not have a lighter blue but we do have 2 lighter blues in the IL020 that you may want to take a look at. We have swatches for purchase that would help to make sure this weight will work for your project. IL020 Light Blue or Powder Blue.
Absolutely love this fabric. It sees up very nicely. It would make great crib sheets
This might be controversial, but I've always thought of gingham as being a woven pattern. A simple plaid, really, using two colors. I have run into printed "gingham" patterns before, and passed them up because they weren't anything I was interested in. I read the description and may have overlooked it but, I didn't see anywhere it described this as a *printed* "gingham" pattern. I did what I always do and bought a doggie-bag sample to play with. It's a beautiful cotton. I can't dispute that. It's also, however, a printed pattern and not an actual woven pattern. Just beware. I love FS and recommend it to all me sewing friends, but this caught me off guard.
IC005 Percale Gingham. Remember bed jackets? I do, my grandmother had dozens of them. I thought making one would be nice especially for summer, less fabric than a full length robe. For the nightgown I used a modified version of Simplicity #9745, and a vintage pattern bought online for the bed jacket.
For this review I wanted to create something fairy tale-ish without it being kitschy. And I wanted to include different things I made. Wearable, modern dwarfs... So I took my Marseille Sweater I had just finished, my sons hat I had knitted for his first Christmas (both patterns by Petite Knit), and my beret (pattern by My Favourite Things Knitwear) and started playing around. After some time I figured out what I wanted to make. I made a self-drafted quilted vest for E. using one of his jackets as a guide for the right sizing and the Toril Pants from Tauko Magazine for me. (If you don't know about Tauko Magazine yet â€“ this is your sign to go check it out!)
I decided to sew matching pyjamas for my daughter and son made of pink and blue gingham cotton percale. The fabric is weightless, you can easily make either bed linens or pyjamas out of it, it does not electrify, as it's components are natural fibres, which is an important factor to consider when choosing fabric for sewing sleep accessories, especially for children!
