  • Re: Fat Quarter storage

    Costgo sells the spring garden lettuce in clear plastic containers. I save these and they are the perfect size for storing fat quarters. Repurpose - recycle. Keeps them out of the land fill and keeps my fabric so happy.

Just cut a rectangle of this awesome sticky back chalkboard, write your title on label, and best yet- it is re-positionable...

  • Storing Fabric

    I cut acid-free mat board into 6 x 12 (approx) rectangles and simply wrap fabric (1/2 yard cuts and larger) around the bolts.
