What Else Can I Make Using Quilt Fabric?

It's perfect for a number of other uses alongside making custom bedding. If you're preparing for colder climates, then sew your own padded dressing gown or loungewear jacket. Being comfortable doesn't have to say you compromise on style! An innovative idea is to attach a hood to a normal jacket using quilting fabric. When it's raining, a nice thick padded hood is always handy, and it keeps your head warm too. You can also make crafty little sock puppets for children. Print pictures on fabric for quilts to make playtime more fun.

Quilting fabric made on demand

The process we use to make printed quilt fabric, dye sublimation, fuses the ink deep into the textile fibres, creating a lasting print that doesn't scratch off or peel away. Surface textures and appearance vary across the different quilting materials, so this could help you decide which one you need for your craft project. Note that occasional small white dots may occur when choosing our Cotton Linen fabric. This is due to the fabrics nature and our processing methods. This will not affect the strong colours and detail of your print. 

All of our quilting fabrics come with a choice of four edge finishing options: cut on the line for precision, hemmed with white thread, hemmed with black thread, or left as it is with a rough cut.


    Print Guideline

    • DPI-Print Guideline Icon

      What resolution is best for printing?

      All of our fabrics are printed at 200dpi. This works for us as it combines a great quality as we as a good file weight. In order to avoid resizing and interpolation, we recommend that you scale your image to 100% at 200dpi. Our design interface works with a traffic light system that acts as a quality marker for your designs. This will show you whether the resolution is too low for printing. When you re-upload your design with a highest resolution, the traffic lights will change colour, showing you're good to go. A message will pop up alongside the traffic lights to let you know if the resolution is too low or if you have a good quality image. 

    • scaling-Print Guideline Icon

      Will my image be scaled to fit?

      Your uploaded design will automatically be scaled to fit the size of fabric you've chosen. You can change the dimensions of your fabric by amending the measurements on the ‘Product Options’ tab, under ‘Print Size’. To see how this fits with the dimensions of your image/design, you can refer to the ‘Images & Text Tools’ tab under 'Quality Information'. Here, you will be able to edit the dimensions of the image.

    • RGB-CMYK Print Guideline Icon

      Should I choose RGB or CMYK?

      We always recommend using an RGB colour space when you upload your images. More specifically, we suggest using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best colour results. This will need to be done in your editing software; choose RGB as the working space, and assign the image profile as sRGB (full name sRGB IEC61966-2.1)

    • Print-Roll Length Fabric Guide Icon

      Is there a maximum length I can print on?

      There is no length limit for most of our fabrics. Our preview design window is set up to displaying a maximum of 10m to help you visualise the print, but that doesn't mean this is the print limit. If you'd like to order more, you can increase the quantity (x2 for 20m or x4 for 40m for example) and order as much as you'd like. Larger volumes will receive an automatic discount too. While the fabric length is nothing to worry about, each individual fabric will have a maximum width side: These can be found on the fabric's page information or in the design interface. 

    • Borders-Print Guideline Icon

      Should I add white space for borders or cutting onto my design? 

      Yes, that will help you when it comes to cutting or framing your printed fabric. We recommend always adding a little extra space for borders into your purchased fabric size. When we print your materials, or send out fabric samples, we typically trim squarely around the fabric, leaving approximately 5mm white space. Cutting neatly on the line has an additional fee.

    • crocking-Print Guideline Icon

      What is crocking?

      Crocking is the term used to describe fading along the creases in a fabric. It typically can occur after constant washing or heavy use of digitally printed natural fabrics. Crocking can be minimised by hand washing your fabrics at a cooler temperature, rather than machine washing. If you want to make sure there's no chance of crocking, we'd suggest you use a poly fabric. 

    • organics-Print Guideline Icon

      Is it normal for colours to appear lighter on organic fabrics?

      Yes, our organic fabrics don't have an additional coating like non-organic fabrics have, which means it absorbs the inks deep into its fibre and reducing the colour strength slightly (this can be approximately -40%). If you would like a bolder, more vibrant colour for your fabric, we would suggest using a non-organic fabric. 

    • Transfer-Print Guideline Icon

      Can I supply my own fabric for you to print onto?

      Unfortunately not; all of our fabrics have been tested meticulously to ensure we know exactly how to get the best results, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. If you are set on a fabric we don't offer, we can offer custom printed sublimation paper to order which will allow you to heat press your designs onto your own fabrics.

    • Jpeg-Tiff Print Guideline Icon

      Which is a better image format: TIFF or JPEG?

      If your design is simple and less intricate, a JPEG will be absolutely fine. However, if you have created a design with multi-coloured detailing, we would recommend saving your design in a TIFF format. 

    • Shrinkage-Print Guideline Icon

      Will my material shrink during printing?

      Similar to other fabric printing processes, shrinkage can occur. The amount of shrinkage will depend on the fabric, but as a general rule of thumb, please allow for 2-8% shrinkage when working out your measurements. Shrinkage is not an exact science, and the amount of shrinkage will vary from print run to print run. We'd always suggest order a little more than you need for your project. 

    • Print-Both Sides Print Guideline Icon

      Can I order double sided printed fabric?

      Many of the fabrics we offer are semi-transparent, so printing on both sides of the fabric is not a service we offer. 

    • Labels-Print Guideline Icon

      Can I order labels in a different fabric? Are the labels cut like normal fabric labels?

      At the moment, all of our fabric labels are printed on satin fabric. For now, we believe this is the best choice, but will potentially introduce other options in the future. All labels are cut to the same label format. If you would like to choose a different fabric and format for your labels, you could always order a sheet of the fabric of your choice to create labels yourself. 

    • Eco friendly Printing

      How do you print your fabrics in an eco-friendly way?

      Our fabrics are printed with water-based inks as environmental consciousness is always front of our minds. Water-based inks include no chemicals or solvents, and our printing process uses heat to fix colours and patterns into place to avoid excess or contaminated water returning into the water system (this is something that can occur through steaming). All printing, fulfilment and production is done in our one facility in London, and rather than rolling the fabrics or sending them in a tube, you will receive your material folded up. This amounts to 150 tubes saved a week, as well as much more space on the delivery van for more orders. (For delicate fabrics we ensure to package appropriately).

    • colour palette

      Will there be slight colour differences between my orders?

      Although very rare, there could be a slight colour difference from one print run to another. This is a normal part of the printing process, however we are always working to improve our colour profiles. It is unlikely that  the difference in print runs will be hugely different (for example, it's unlikely your orange is suddenly going to be red). The likelihood of colour variations can be intensified fabric to fabric due to materials having different grains and textures; natural fabrics typically have more muted colour tones, while poly alternatives have a bolder hue. This is because the construction of the material is different, and the printing method has to be altered slightly for more delicate, natural textiles.

    Sizing For Hemming And Shrinkage

    Hemming Options ICON

    Our full cut & sew service at Bags of Love can be used to your full advantage. We even offer hemming for your fabrics at a small additional cost. Our hems are created with a one or two cold hem that typically uses around 5 to 20mm of fabric (depending on the thickness of your chosen material). Please bare this in mind when you are ordering your printed fabric with hems: If you would like your finished piece to be 100cm x 100cm, change your dimensions to 101.5cm instead to allow space for your hems (you will also need to include additional for potential shrinkage). The thicker the fabric, the bigger the hem will be. Your printed fabric will be hemmed with either Black or White thread. If you are ordering a lightly woven material or a printed silk, you will find that one hem will be straight, while the other slightly rippled.  The hemming material allowances are as follows and you need to make your print bigger to accommodate the hem:

    • Light Fabrics (20-100gsm): For silks and other light fabrics, we use 6-8mm in the hem (2 fold), so overall width/height will be minus 12-16mm
    • Medium Fabrics (101-200gsm): For medium-weight fabrics that fray, we use 15-20mm in the hem (2 fold) so overall width/height will be minus 35-40mm
    • Stiff/Heavy/No-fray fabrics: we use 15-20mm in the hem (1 fold) so overall width/height will be minus 35-40mm
    All of these measurements can vary and should only be seen as an approximation. If you allow for hems and slight shrinkage, it can add a fairly significant amount to your ordered dimensions, so please make sure to consider these things prior to ordering. Depending on how open the weave is, our fabric can shrink anywhere from 2% to 8% with the average being 2.5%.

    Choose From Three Finishes

    We have three finishing options available: 
    • As it comes: We simply cut around your image with scissors - leaving a perhaps uneven white border. 
    • Hem with thread: We can offer your fabric hemmed with a black or white thread. This will add an additional 1-2 days of production time to your order. Please refer to the dimensions above to gauge how the hemming will affect the size of your print. You will have a choice of an overlock hem or folded hem (one or two fold depending on the fabric) however not all fabrics are suited to both hem types. In the design interface, you will be able to see which options are available to you. If you can only see one hem available, this means that this is the only suitable hem for this material type. 
    • Cut on the line: Rather than our 'as it comes' option, we will cut neatly on the edge of your design against the grain of the fabric. If you have a border around your design we will cut around that border. If the design takes up the whole fabric, we will neatly cut around the edge of the image. Cutting against the grain is standard for fabric cutting, and as such lighter materials such as Georgette or Mulmul will have a slight wave in them, and some fraying may occur. 
    All of our fabrics are carefully hand cut. It is not always possible to maintain a perfectly straight cut for certain fabrics, so please bear this is mind if you see your edge has a slightly uneven look or a little fraying. This is not a flaw in the material. If you have any queries or would like to know about our cutting methods in more detail, please get in touch and we will be more than happy to discuss them with you.

    Please note: As everything we provide is handmade to order, you may find a slight variance in the sizes.
