Seeking a sewing time saver? Pick a pack of pre-cuts for your project. A bundle of jelly rolls, Bali pops or charm packs not only spare precious minutes of measuring and cutting, but also a bundle of these fabric treats include a whole collection of coordinates. More bolt for your buck! A longtime quilter's tool, pre-cuts have now moved into the fashion sewing spotlight. We've designed several patterns based on the popularity of these handy strips and squares. Jelly rolls, or 2 1/2" strips of fabric snipped selvedge to selvedge, create flirty, feminine ruffles on our Ruffled Revival (IJ889) and Serged Satchel (IJ826) handbags. You can also use Bali pops, the batik equivalent. Jelly rolls and Bali pops add pieced pizazz to our Cinched Patchwork Satchel (IJ909) and a showstopping basket-weave front to our Woven Mosaic Purse (IJ876). Charm packs, 5" squares of fabric, take the prep work out of patchwork in our clever Kitchen Charm Apron (IJ785) and darling Little Charmers (IJ813) garments for girls. Pair a couple coordinates for a simple style or mix and match to make a colorful and playful statement.
