Someone has assumed that the usable width of fabric is 1 metre. If the number of inches you need is X, to figure out the number of strips (Y), you use X/39.37 = Y. Or, 0.0254X = Y.<br /><br />I'm guessing you probably don't care all that much, but my geeky math brain enjoyed figuring that out!Colleenhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/02198380481975287285noreply@blogger.com
