Design your own custom printed muslin fabric. Personalised muslin fabric is a classic muslin weave with a modern twist. It has the lightness of cotton, as well as the soft-touch and beautiful drape, yet the strength and durability of poly. With net-like construction, Mulmul Soft Muslin is made from synthetic fibres.

Our Mulmul Soft Muslin is super lightweight, at only 55gsm. It has a naturally loose yarn which helps give your custom muslin fabric design a rustic look, without impacting the quality of the print.
Muslin fabric has many different uses. It is a fabric that is made using a plain weave, and it gets it's name from the city of Mosul in northern Iraq, which is possibly where it was first manufactured. Muslin is fine, soft and lightweight. Is it used as a French polishing pad for shellac polishing, and is the traditional material for the cloth wrapped around a Christmas pudding. It is also the material that beekeepers use to filter melted beeswax through when they are cleaning it of debris and foreign particles. It is even used in cerebrovascular neurosurgery, to wrap around intracranial vessels or aneurysms that are at risk of bleeding, to reinforce and prevent rupture. In more recent years, muslin has become a popular choice for newborns, especially due to its soft and strong nature. Muslin squares are a popular essential with new babies. Known as a mother's best friend, they are so versatile that they don't have one specific purpose; used as bibs, dribble-cloths, comforters, sunshades or for lining cold changing mats, they really do have unlimited uses.
We offer multiple ways for you to receive your printed muslin fabric; these options are presented to you in our simple-to-use, intuitive online design tool. After we have bonded your fade-resistant print on muslin fabric, we can either send it to you "As is" with a white border around the edges; exactly as it comes from the printer. If you would prefer, we can "Cut on the Line" your personalised muslin fabric; one of our experts will cut all the white edging from the fabric, leaving only the part with your print.
Another option is to have your custom printed muslin fabric hemmed. One of our experienced seamstresses will stitch one of two hems around the entirety of your personalised muslin fabric. This will be done here in our Bags of Love studio. You will have the choice of either an overlocked hem, which is stitched completely over the edge of the material, or a baby hem with a straight stitch. As Mulmul Soft Muslin is a lightweight material, your hem will be a two-fold hem, and will take up around 6-8 mm of each of the four sides (totalling 24-32 mm all the way around) so make sure that you account for this when providing your measurements. You can choose between black or white thread for either of the hemming options.
If you can’t decide on which photo to use, you can upload multiple images and create a photo collage. This can be done using one of our pre-set montage templates, or you can create your own entirely from scratch. It’s super easy to do and the possibilities are endless.

This is done using more than one type of printing method. Custom printed muslin fabric, printed in our studio, is hand made using your designs with a fast turnaround. Every printing method that we use will bond your fade-resistant personalised design to your printed muslin fabric, in full glorious colour. We decide on how to print on muslin fabric by the type of material it is; natural fabrics lend themselves to a pigment printing method, whereas our synthetic materials (including Mulmul soft Muslin) are printed using a technique known as dye sublimation. Dye sublimation is a two part process which involves first printing your personalised muslin fabric design onto a transfer sheet, then using heat to bond this and create your fade-resistant printed muslin fabric.
Please note: Due to the delicate nature of the fabric, some pulls are to be expected and this is not out of the ordinary. The loose yarn of the fabrics means your design may vary in shape.
All of our fabrics are printed at 200dpi. This works for us as it combines a great quality as well as a good file weight. In order to avoid resizing and interpolation, we recommend that you scale your image to 100% at 200dpi. Our design interface works with a traffic light system that acts as a quality marker for your designs. This will show you whether the resolution is too low for printing. When you re-upload your design with
Your uploaded design will automatically be scaled to fit the size of

There is no length limit for most of our fabrics. Our preview design window is set up to display a maximum of 10m to help you visualise the print, but that doesn't mean this is the print limit. If you'd like to order more, you can increase the quantity (x2 for 20m or x4 for 40m for example) and order as much as you'd like. Larger volumes will receive an automatic discount too. While the fabric length is nothing to worry about, each individual fabric will have a maximum width side: these can be found on the fabric's page information or in the design interface.

Yes, our organic fabrics don't have an additional coating like non-organic fabrics have, which means it absorbs the inks deep into its fibre and reducing the colour strength slightly (this can be approximately -40%). If you would like a bolder, more vibrant colour for your fabric, we would suggest using a non-organic fabric.
Unfortunately not; all of our fabrics have been tested meticulously to ensure we know exactly how to get the best results, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. If you are set on a fabric we don't offer, we can offer custom printed sublimation paper to order which will allow you to heat press your designs onto your own fabrics.
If your design is simple and less intricate, a JPEG will be absolutely fine. However, if you have created a design with multi-coloured detailing, we would recommend saving your design in a TIFF format.
Similar to other fabric printing processes, shrinkage can occur. The amount of shrinkage will depend on the fabric, but as a general rule of thumb, please allow for 2-8% shrinkage when working out your measurements. Shrinkage is not an exact science, and the amount of shrinkage will vary from print run to print run. We'd always suggest ordering a little more than you need for your project.
Many of the fabrics we offer are semi-transparent, so printing on both sides of the fabric is not a service we offer.
At the moment, all of our fabric labels are printed on satin fabric. For now, we believe this is the best choice, but will potentially introduce other options in the future. All labels are cut to the same label format. If you would like to choose a different fabric and format for your labels, you could always order a sheet of the fabric of your choice to create labels yourself.

Our full cut & sew service at Bags of Love can be used to your full advantage. We even offer hemming for your fabrics at a small additional cost. Our hems are created with a one or two cold hem that typically uses around 5 to 20mm of fabric (depending on the thickness of your chosen material). Please bear this in mind when you are ordering your printed fabric with hems: If you would like your finished piece to be 100cm x 100cm, change your dimensions to 101.5cm instead to allow space for your hems (you will also need to include additional for potential shrinkage). The thicker the fabric, the bigger the hem will be. Your printed fabric will be hemmed with either Black or White thread. If you are ordering a lightly woven material or
