Today I thought I'd start with something that regularly overwhelms my craft area.
So I told you a little while back that I was seriously needing to reorganize my sewing area. As in, it was so bad, I am not even going to show you pictures of it. It's highly likely if you sew and craft, yours looks very similar anyway. Here's a very small sample of the fabric I pulled off the shelves.
Nicely folded, you ask? What's that? Here's how I fold my fabric:
I turned that pile of fabric at the top of the post into these piles:
That big white blob is Minky. It's going to go live with the fleece in the Rubbermaid bin. You can see why it doesn't belong with the others. The tulle and satin fabric is a little tougher to fold - just don't fold too tightly or you can't pull out the ruler without it catching on the tulle netting. It's also handy to pin the folded piece together when you're done.
And you can see that I've already been fabric shopping in there for knits, and didn't fold it back right. Oops. I'm bad about sticking to a system. But I find that keeping it organized helps me remember what I have, and makes the whole pile look smaller to Mr. Tupelo. Double bonus.
He enabled me though - he built that shelf over my sewing table which holds my fabric.
Come back tomorrow for more of this series!
