I can’t believe I’m about to show you this pic:
That’s the bulk of my fabric stash. Right now I store most of my things in our old tv cabinet. Our current tv doesn’t fit in the cabinet, and it looks really nice when the doors are closed up. 😉
I’ve been reading about fabric mini bolts for awhile now, and I finally decided to take the plunge. The idea of “shopping” in my own stash was my motivation, b/c I find it easier to sew from my stash when I know what is in my stash. I was pleasantly surprised to find that we have a local comic book store, and I gave the guys quite a laugh when I admitted to knowing nothing about comic book sizes and just wanting the boards for fabric!
I put all 1/2 yard and larger cuts on bolts. For my fat quarters, I wrapped them on bolts if I had several coordinates from a collection and wanted to store them together. Other fat quarters are stacked in a CD rack.
Ahhh, so organized.
Here are the 7″ x 10.5″ comic book boards that I used. I bought 200, and was pleasantly surprised to find that I didn’t need to use all of them! (They are acid-free and archival safe!)
For the March giveaway, I will send 1 lucky winner 10 comic book boards to try out, and 10 for the winner to pass on to a friend. Organization is sort of like potato chips: once you start, you can’t stop!
To enter the giveaway, just leave me a comment. Give me an organizing tip. If you can’t think of one to share, tell me what kinds of tips you’re looking for!
Giveaway is open to everyone. 🙂
I’ll randomly select a winner on Friday, March 11.
