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!!
