I’m turning my grown daughter’s room into a sewing/guest room. I was wishing for a way to organize my fabric stash so that it could be both seen and protected. This is what I came up with. I ordered two clear “flip-flop organizers” for my smaller scraps. I sorted the scraps by color and placed them in gallon zip-top storage bags. I stuffed the bags in the holders for the flip flops and hung them in the closet. For larger pieces of fabric, I ordered a “gift bag organizer.” It has small pockets in the top that I plan to use for notions and/or patterns. I plan to wrap fabric yardage around pasteboard and stow it in the the larger pouches toward the bottom.
I wish I could show you how delicate this came out, the scan just doesn’t show it. I bought sheets of crepe de chine from Dharma Trading. I downloaded free images from antiqueclipart.com and printed them. I didn’t think I’d ever get the backing off the fabric, but oooh when I did. I’m very excited. Something worked for once! Now I have reproduction antique silks to use in my crazy quilting.
All three items came from Target by way of amazon.com. So far, I’m pretty pleased with my new system!
