Organizing Your Fabric Stash Inexpensively

Organizing Your Fabric Stash

I really LOVE fabric.  It is an addiction.  I have done pretty well so far in life and I don't have a ridiculous amount.  Mostly because I really do try to find a use for everything I buy.  But sometimes, you just have to buy a cute print!!  So I needed a great way to display and organize my fabric so I knew what I had.  So comes in my Christmas boxes!!

My kids got some fun things for Christmas this year and we buy tons of diapers and wipes.  So I thought, why not use what I have.

First, you'll need a long and fairly wide box.  I used the above box from my daughter's birthday gift.  I cut it on one side at a diagonal as you can see.  This will be my fabric holder.

Next, I cut cardboard strips about 3 inches wide and 10 inches tall.  They could be thicker or thinner, I wasn't trying to be real accurate.  Then I carefully folded my fabric around the strips.

I placed the fabric in my diagonally cut box and voila!  A very cheap and easy way to store and display my fabrics.

I have a shelf to display them, so I decided to do some "stadium seating" for my fabric.  I used some #10 cans to put the top layer up and then placed the bottom directly in front of that.

Now I can see all my fabric and it is organized!

I'd love to know how you organize your fabrics and crafts!!
