Maths headache

I’m playing with fabric at the moment. I have a few ideas floating around in my head and I really want to get stitching again. To get me back into the groove I thought I would have a go at a few of Amy Butler’s free patterens.

Here the headache bagan.

Amy’s patterens are all in imperial. I was taught metric at school, and i know what an inch or a foot is, but 1/8 yard? Or 3/8 yard? No idea at all!

So I have hunted around, looked at books, stomped about, then through the power of google I found this… Conversion Chart
