Width is 5" x and it is 87" long. Elephants and flower patches are framed with diamond stitching top and bottom. Elephant patches measure a bit less than 5" long. Flower patches are 4" long.

The last photo shows how all fabric orders leave my shop -- wrapped in vintage pattern paper and topped with a unique thank you "card".
SewLaVieFabrics supplies quilters, fashion designers and decorators perfectly usable - excess fabrics of the highest quality in order that these fabrics be reused rather than discarded into our landfills.
Thank you for visiting my little fabric shop where I enjoy finding VHTF and OOP fabrics in all motifs --
