Matilda's Own Rainbow Batting a.k.a. Jelly Roll Batting
Pre-cut Polyester Batting 20 meters (21.9 approx Yards) by 5 cms (2 inches)
This Rainbow Batting has been especially cut for use with 2.5 inch Pre-Cut Fabric Strips a.k.a. Jelly Rolls, Bali Pops and Rainbows
Why is it a little narrower? When the Rainbow Batting is placed down the center of a 2.5" fabric strip, it does not quite come to the edges, making it a lot easier to work with especially when enclosing within the strip of fabric, it can be folded inside the strip without edges of batting being visible or bulking up in the center once enclosed. Making it a lot easier to work with and a better end result than using a full width strip.
When I am teaching this technique or selling the patterns, whether it is to make bags or rugs I always recommend that if the customer is cutting their own batting, to cut it at 2" (5 cms) not the 2.5" that the patterns always state.
Once you have used the narrower 2cm strip, you will never go back to using the wider 2.5" strip.
