Fabric Organization

I’m a bit of a fabric hoarder.  I mean… I come by it honestly: my grandmother has the same affliction.  But really… its a good problem to have.  It means that whenever I have the itch to sew something, I don’t have to run out to the store to buy anything.  The problem becomes when it goes to storing it. In my office I have a closet where I keep my sewing machine and a few crafty things.  And while the boxes of craft supplies have suited me pretty well, the fabric was getting a BIT out of hand.


So I went to my normal source for inspiration and found that LOTS of people on Pinterest were using comic book boards to wrap their fabric around.  So I went to Amazon, found these and ordered them. (You should have seen the look on my husband’s face when he opened THAT amazon package!)

And one quick hour and I wrapped up my fabric onto their little cardboard pieces:



Lexie, of course, decided she needed to supervise.



And when all was said and done it looked MUCH improved from before. I added a few Elfa dividers that I had laying around.  They don’t fit perfectly on my IKEA shelf, but they helped keep things somewhat upright and organized.



Now I’ll have to work on some more sewing projects!
