Hi! It's been a while since I have posted anything. I have been busy working on several projects and I finally snapped with the disorganization of my fabric! So....let the pictures tell the story!
This is just where I store the bulk of my fabric. I have bins with scraps and after I attacked this bunch; I pulled a lot out to put into a new scrap bin made up of larger pieces.
I started with Pinks. I folded the fabric selvage to selvage. Apparently they come off the bolt like this. You should get about 20"- 22" wide.
Then I started wrapping the fabric around my 6x24" ruler.
I folded or wrapped all the way. I tucked in the raw edges if it was too short or overlapped a little.
Then I folded in half.
I decided to put the fabrics in Rainbow order.
Here are the purples. Yeah, I realize that the Robert Kaufman is upside down!
I tackled the greens. I had a LOT of greens so I had to make two cubby's worth of greens. It's interesting this new way. I can see every single piece of fabric I have and I can also see what I tend to buy more of!!!
Uki got up to pose with her favorite color! Pink! Love her little Lion Cut!!
Honestly; I cropped the other half of the shelf out. I have drawers and books and papers all over. I still have a ton of work to do but the main stash of fabric is organized and finished and I'm so excited! I enjoyed this process but also got very bored. I enjoyed seeing what fabrics I have and remembering why I bought it and wondered why I bought some of them!! Hahahahaha....
Stay tuned as I have some projects to finish. I have deadlines and can not get to them until I finish my room. It took me one week to get these mofo's in this shape!!!
Thanks for stopping by!!!
