Fabric can be such a mess! You cut off your selvages…..now you have no idea what the fabric line is. You cut the larger piece into a smaller piece…now you have no idea what size you really have now. There is a monster pile of pieces of fabric….who knows what you really have?!
Today, we are going to learn together a new sewing room idea and how to conquer the problem of fabric.
I started to think about quilt stores and how when I buy a fat quarter at the store, it’s usually folded nicely in a roll or a square and then had a lablel wrap. It keeps the folded fabric together, and helps the store keep organized.
So, putting together my own was the next best thing to help out my piles.
The large frame should have enough space for whatever notes you want to keep for that fabric piece. The wrap is adjustable…..just tape it to secure after you wrap the fabric.
No matter how you store your fabric bundle— in a roll or a flat fold, the wrap will keep it all together and allow you to keep organized within your sewing area too.
How to use your fabric bundle wraps:
1) Print on paper
2) Cut in between the strips to separate them
3) Fold fabric. Just in case you need it, here’s a quick how to well…..two how to’s on folding your fat quarter fabric.
4) Wrap the strip around the fabric, secure with tape
