My Fabric Cupboard
This is the finished organized cupboard. Whew! Have all my scraps sorted into plastic bags (I like the ones with the slide closures). Of course my style of "bagging it" is to have a bag per quilt, extra triangles, then strips by 1", 1 1/2", 2" etc. And various other scraps, which did result in a lot of bags. But since they are all clear, I can now see what I am looking at and looking for.
Not to back up - but this was my first attempt at adding a picture. Very proud of myself that I actually got it sized and attached :) If you look at the way I sorted it, it is by pinks, greens, browns, white & blues. If I pull out a piece, I can put it back by just placing it on the top of the stack. If I had to take the whole pile down and re-insert it according to color graduation, I'd never keep it organized. The fat quarters are set at the side of each pile in the same colors. I usually buy my fabrics in 1/2 yard and 1 yard sizes. When I've found a print, color or pattern I really like, then I get more (but that's one the second trip to the store). My favorite place is the remnants. After a sale, I try to go back often in order to find the ones I like. I know they'll be there, because I'm the one that bought at the bottom of the bolt and there should be a remnant made of what was left.
