Welcome to Week 4 of the Creative Spaces Blog Hop! Today, I get to talk to you about how I store my fabric. And let me tell you that is a loaded question. Partly because I have quite a bit of fabric. Hmmm... but don't we all. As you saw in last week's post, there is a whole closet dedicated to my fabric storage and I will talk about that.
First let's talk about my scraps. You probably won't believe this, but I don't actually have a lot. What I do have is dedicated to projects in my project bins that I showed you in last week's blog post. But here is my scrap basket. Not much right? But I do dig into it.
Then I have a HUGE collection of Black and White Fabrics. Most of you know that I have a large stash of these because that is one of my loves.... Many of you have my book that I wrote all about it! You can find it here. So I usually buy 1/2 yard pieces when I see something I like and then fold it in a particular way and then store them underneath my long arm. They are separated into their respective color way... either black or white for easy pickings.
I do have projects and bins inside my one Ikea cabinet. And I think that is the messiest part of my studio... inside the cabinet. But the projects are all in ziploc style bags or in bins. Sheesh... I have a lot of projects going on.
Then I have some fat quarters and strip packs that sit on the top of those shelves underneath my longarm. I don't have many pre-cuts because I just cut off whatever yardage I have.
Then around the back of my long arm, I have two other continents.... LOL!!! I have my African and Australian fabrics. I love them so much that they have their own special place.
Very much like I store my fabric in my closet, I have some stored right next to my sewing machines. Folded right when I get them and put away neatly. Here I have hand dyes, batiks, spots and dots on black and white or color fabrics. It always makes me happy to look at them when I am sewing.
Then last but not least is the fabric that I sell online here. Here is where I keep the bolts. I have a little bit of my Fresh Pickin's (its on sale) fabric left and a little bit of Blue Moon too! I have my fall fabric line here too... but I can't show you, yet!
So how do you store your fabric? Are you organized or not?
