## Re: How to find out how many yards of Fabric needed.

9 square feet per square yard, so 9 x 1728 = square inches per square yard. Just figure up the surface area of your box (length x width for each side, add them all together) But you will want to figure it up so that you have extra, you don't want to have to piece chunks together on any side do you?

depending on how WIDE the fabric is, you might be screwed. You already have to lay the box long ways since it's 48" wide. the other measurements make it... paint for you my friend.
