When creating a patchwork piece, non-stretch fabrics are favoured; this is because it makes it much easier to stitch all the pieces together, and to ensure that your larger design is adhered to by the smaller pieces.

Everything was excellent and I love the end result! Will definitely be ordering more !
I am about to embroider part of my garden, it will be a difficult task, as I am not sure yet quite how to do some of the stitches, that is why i needed two pictures to practice on one. I am very pleased with the result but daunted at the task.
Patchwork is a pieced work, which is done by sewing different pieces of fabric together into a bigger design. The larger design can be a very simple pattern, using squares of an equal size and shape, in a repetitive pattern, however, this is not always the case. Some patchwork pieces are made up of different sized and shaped pieces of fabric; geometric shapes are easier to piece together, but you have full creative freedoms to create whatever sized or shaped pieces you like. Historically patchwork pieces used up all the scraps of other fabrics, and can be dated back as far as 5000 years ago, being found in Egyptian tombs and early age China. During the Great Depression, patchwork had a widespread revival, to recycle worn clothing into warm quilts. Patchwork quilts tend to use the patchwork piece as the top layer, with a layer of wadding and a bottom backing layer. Patchwork pieces can be used to create cushions, bags, wall hangings, patchwork upholstery fabric and even jackets.

We print your patchwork fabric by the yard or metre, in bespoke sizes chosen by you. The patchwork fabric is then digitally printed with your design using one of our expert printing methods. Natural fabrics tend to use pigment printing techniques, applying coloured dyes directly to the fabric in a localised area to build up your custom design. Synthetic fabrics favour our dye sublimation process, printing your personalised design onto a transfer paper, and then with heat, bonding this to the fabric.
You can choose to have your patchwork upholstery fabric hemmed, with either an overlock or baby hem, in either black or white thread. As your patchwork fabric will likely be stitched together with other patchwork fabrics, you might prefer to have it either cut on the line with all white edges removed or sent as it comes directly from the printer, with your print and an untrimmed edging.
