## Measure To Be Sure

1. Measure the width of the headboard as the distance from the left to the right, add twice the thickness of the headboard plus 10 inches. The result is the required cut width of the fabric piece you need for the headboard. Measure the length of the headboard from the top to the bottom, add twice the thickness plus 10 inches for the result of the length of the piece of fabric required. Divide the required cut width of the fabric by the actual width of the fabric and round up the number. Multiply this by the required cut length of the fabric. Add 10 percent to the result for pattern matching, and divide the final number by 36 for the number of yards of fabric needed. For example, if the cut length required is 58 inches, the fabric is 54 inches wide, and the required cut width of fabric is 92, the calculation is 92 divided by 54 -- which, rounded up, is 2 -- 2 times 58 is 116, plus 10 percent equals 127. Dividing this by 36 equals 3.6 or 3 5/8 yards.
