Cotton Drill - Yellow
I was given this bright yellow cotton drill last year when I was making scrubs. I don't know where it had been stored, but it was very dusty so I've washed it, dried it and ironed it.
After washing, it has softened a lot and I think it would be suitable for a wide range of garments, accessories and crafts.
After weighing it I've worked out it's approximately 260gsm and I think it would work well for aprons, trousers/shorts, overalls/dungarees, bags and purses. You could also make tops, shirts and jackets depending on the pattern and the look you want to achieve.
This fabric is very narrow at 72cm (28.35") wide and there is the occasional small slub that appears on the twill weave side (see photos) but I've priced it accordingly.
100% of the profits from this fabric will be donated to NHS Charities Together.

|Care*||Cotton drill can be washed at any temperature up to 60 degrees (although it's more eco-friendly to wash at lower temperatures). It's suitable for the tumble dryer and a hot iron.|
This fabric is priced and sold by the half metre. Multiple purchases will be cut in one continuous length (e.g. if you need 1.5 metres, add 3 to your basket).
If you need to check the colour or feel of the fabric, you can use my swatch me up service.
I recommend that you pre-wash your fabric before you start your project. Follow the care instructions and allow for 10% shrinkage just to be safe.
*If you are going to go rogue when washing your finished garment (guilty!), then I recommend testing it on a small piece first before you start.
