Craft Storage: Contributor Storage Solutions – Fabric Storage
Craft storage ideas for quilting and sewing rooms!
It’s Amanda again!
I’m here to share with you a quick solution that I use in my craft room to get those precarious piles of fabric out of the closet and out in the open where my collection can inspire my creativity.
First, I ordered some comic book backer boards from Amazon.com, similar to these Ultra Pro Regular Size Comic Boards.
Of course you could use cereal box cardboard, or regular cardboard, if you’re patient enough to save up enough pieces for your stash.
I’m not that patient.
Then, just fold your fabric into a width that is slightly smaller than the height of your cardboard, and begin wrapping the fabric around the cardboard.
To secure the end of the fabric to the mini bolt, use a sewing pin, or a clothes pin if you’re worried about poking fingers later.
For storage, simply line up your mini bolts of fabric on a shelf or bookcase.
It looks like you have a mini craft store right in your craft room and the fabric is out where you can see it.
Just seeing all the pretty patterns together makes my fingers itch to turn it into a beautiful quilt or to sew up a cute stuffed animal!
(This is Steph: I don’t even sew and I’d love to have this kind of inspiration in my craft room! Great idea, Amanda!)
It’s been fun – thanks for joining us today!
