Hello! I am Bobbie from A Vision to Remember!
I am always struggling with how to organize my fabric. I have a TON of it…ok maybe not quite a ton but a 1/2 ton!
I have pieces from 1/8th of a yard to 15 yards. So how do I organize it? Here is what works best for me:
I bought a couple of those plastic drawers when they were $10 at Walmart. Then I folded my fabrics so that they will fit nicely in the drawer. I can fit 3 rows of fabric in each drawer. I have found that fabrics smaller than 2 yards fit best in the drawers.
Here are the drawers:
Then for those pieces that are larger than that when I am in my local fabric store I ask if they have any of those cardboard pieces that their fabric is on that are empty. Then I take them home and roll those pieces of fabric onto the cardboard pieces
Those are the ones I rolled this morning (my hubby picked some up for me the other day. Nice huh?)
Then I hide them all behind the couch I have in my craft room. It works great. Right now we are building a house and I will have a room dedicated to my sewing. I can’t wait to have an entire WALL to display all my fun fabrics on.
How do you display/organize your fabrics?
