Back in August I posted about my new sewing studio. Since then I have had quite a few people emailing about the fabric organizers I use so I thought it was time to give you the scoop on my favorite sewing organization tool of all time! With Christmas around the corner, these would make a fun gift for anyone you know who is a true fabric lover or a fun gift for you from your husband or family (just forward them this post and say "hint, hint").
The organizers come in two sizes - large and small. The majority of mine are large; however I do have about 25 of the small ones for smaller pieces of fabric and trims.
Here is how they work.......
You pop open the two tabs and place then end of your fabric underneath and lock them back into place.
Then you wrap your fabric around the organizer, pulling nice and tight for a snug fit.
This is what one yard of fabric looks like after you have wrapped it around your organizer. The organizers hold up to five yards of fabric each.
I secure the ends of my fabric with two straight pins and then place them on my fabric shelves.
Here are some of my smaller organizers behind my little trim basket.
My fabric use to take up so much space, but since I've been using my organizers, it fits nicely on two large shelves. And I have a LOT of fabric!!
I considered making some of these organizers when I needed to order more, but I found the cost of making them would have been as much, if not more, than buying them. I love how light-weight the organizer is - fabric can be really heavy, so the organizer itself doesn't add any weight to the shelves. If you try to make your own organizers be sure to not use any material that will hurt or damage your fabric.
Here is one of the shelves in my studio filled with neatly organized fabric.
Now while you may not have the shelf space for all of your fabric, you can certainly fit these easily into large plastic storage containers. Then you can slide them under a bed or in a closet if need be.
Being able to see all of my fabric neatly organized inspires me to create. So if your fabric stash has gotten overwhelming and is inhibiting your creativity, I highly recommend you get some of these organizers and get organized!! You'll be glad you did!
