An idea to organize fabrics
I have little space for my fabrics, and most of them are in boxes.
When I make something new, I usually take upper fabrics in the boxes.
So sometimes I re-organize them all and notice I forget some fabrics in the bottom.
Today I got a good idea in my head for them.
At first, I cut recycled paper(some catalogs) in small pieces.
Then I cut the same size piece from my fabrics. I wanted to do it for them all, but some fabrics are not so big and I didn't want to cut them. So I cut maybe 80% of my stash.
At last I paste them on the pieces of paper.
I also wrote a note on the back, where I got them.
I made about 150 pieces (* v *)! It took 2-3 hours.
I ordered them in colors.
I can make combination of fabrics with them. I'll use them for making the kits of Sarubobo pincushion.
I also made pockets to put them, also using catalogs( I like them because they are hard and I have lots of camera catalogs).
How do you organize your fabrics?? When I make something with patchwork, I always make them messy.
By the way,,,
Today I went to see Bo-chan, and he was quite well. Whenever I go to him, I can meet new people who also came to him. He has much more friends than me!
