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.

All the fabrics should be around the same weight, as otherwise, you may end up with a blanket that is really heavy at the top, but lightweight and airy at the bottom; with this in mind all of our hand-picked patchwork fabrics are medium weight fabrics that are non-stretch, but have different handles and properties for a quirky, unique finish. Design patchwork upholstery fabric with your photos, images and text for your next patchwork project.

What is Patchwork Fabric?

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.


Make a Collage

If you can’t decide on which photo to use, you can upload multiple images and create a photo collage. This can be done using one of our pre-set montage templates, or you can create your own entirely from scratch. It’s super easy to do and the possibilities are endless.

How to add your collage to your product

Step 1 – Click the start design button & select your product options.

Step 2 – Go to the ‘Images & Text Tools’ tab, click the ‘add images/Text’ button on your product & ‘Select Images to Upload’ or use the Facebook/Instagram tabs.

Step 3 – Choose the images you want to use for your collage, upload & select them from the uploaded photos list.

Step 4 – Click ‘Create montage’ & select your collage style.

Step 5 – Add the collage to your design.

Hints and Tips

  • The more images you add to your collage the smaller each image will be. Fewer images will be larger and give you more clarity and detail.
  • The more people in an image, the less detail there will be. If you have 10 images of a group of five friends, each person will be smaller than if you have 10 images of just one person.
  • Try to make sure that the longest side of each image is around 10 centimetres. There is a handy ruler built into the design tool to help you with this.
  • Smaller products will not be able to fit as many images as larger ones will.

By the yard or metre

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.
