This calculator will help you accurately determine the amount of fabric needed for your sewing projects.

## Fabric Calculator

### How to Use the Calculator

Enter the width of the fabric in inches and the length of fabric you require in yards. Press the “Calculate” button to see the total amount of fabric needed in square yards. The fabric width should reflect the usable width, excluding any selvedges.

### How the Calculator Works

This calculator takes the width in inches and converts it to yards (since there are 36 inches in a yard) and then multiplies it by your entered length requirement in yards. The result is the total square yards of fabric needed for your project.

### Calculator Limitations

Please note that this calculator assumes a uniform width and ignores any pattern repeats or fabric wastage due to errors or shrinkage. It’s recommended to purchase a little more fabric than calculated to account for such variables.
