Creative Spaces Blog Hop: Week 4

Fabric, fabric, and more fabric. There is no such thing as too much fabric, right?! This week's topic for the Creative Spaces Blog Hop is Fabric & Scrap storage. This is something I have struggled with in the past. Mostly, I had bins of folded fabric all throughout and a basket to throw my scraps in, but recently it has become more organized.

For larger cuts and yardage I now roll the fabric around my 6" wide ruler, then pull out the ruler and fold it in half. This makes for consistently folded cuts that fit perfectly side by side in my cubbies.

Of course my cubbies are separated out by types. I have one that is all Island Batik, and one that is Island Batik precuts. Then I have my printed fabrics, Tula Pink stash, and holiday all split into 3 cubbies. Last but not least is the other batiks.

For scraps I have bins that fit in my cubbies and they are separated by type. Island Batik in one, and everything else in the other.
