Jelly Rolls

I have always wanted to know how to sew jelly rolls.


I love jelly rolls, because I can literally hold an entire fabric collection in the palm of my hand. And, I don't have to spend a fortune on larger cuts of fabric.

Jelly Rolls are convenient, too. They usually contain about 40 precut fabric strips, each measuring 2 1/2" x 44". So, how do we use these little bundles of joy?

Well, for starters, you can sew small projects like table runners, hot pads or wall hangings. But, if you add more fabric to these strips, you can sew anything you want. You can also use more than one jelly roll in a project.

Sometimes it's hard to come up with ideas on how to incorporate these strips into our projects. Well, I've done some research and I found a number of patterns that are designed especially for jelly roll strips. Give 'em a try!
